The Fractured Timeline of the Innsmouth Conspiracy, Issue 3.2: A Light in the Fog

If you watched 'The Office (US),' you would have come across a scene of Stanley's interview about wanting to live in a decommissioned lighthouse, which could launch him into space. Taking space out of the equation, I guess Stanley really wanted his alone time and the lighthouse would be the perfect place, in which, nobody… Continue reading The Fractured Timeline of the Innsmouth Conspiracy, Issue 3.2: A Light in the Fog

The Fractured Timeline of the Innsmouth Conspiracy, Issue 2: Scenario 3 & 4

The picture that perfectly describes the third scenario of The Innsmouth Conspiracy. Credits to FFG for creating a stunning image. My favourite is still the cover image for the path to carcosa.

Arkham Horror LCG in the time of COVID-19

Playing Off-Meta in Standard, A Quick Look at Orzhov Control

I've been playing since the Ice Age, literally, and I've seen the ebbs and flows of fun Standard formats and just awful ones. In the days of Cawblade, prior to the banning of Stoneforge Mystic and Jace, the Mind Sculptor, garnered more than 50% of the metagame. My first big tournament win was with Burning Psychatog, a simple Dimir control deck that splashed Anger for the Upheaval turn, and 6 of the top 8 also played the same deck. Does anyone remember Pickles from Time Spiral? Rebels in Masque? Siege Rhino meta? Thragtusk? And so on and so forth, for just about every Standard format. So when I hear is the Standard format is so unfun, I wonder, what is fun? The last great Standard, in my opinion, was Innistrad-Return to Ravnica. And since then we've had to deal with energy from Kaladesh, Teferi, all of Eldraine, and the Ikoria companions. And now, Mono-Green/Gruul/Temur and URx Dragons/control make up close to 50% of the meta powered by 3 main cards: Esika's Chariot, Goldspan Dragon, and Alrund's Epiphany. After those, there's also the multitude of Mono-White Aggro.
