Announcing the Winner of our New Phyrexia Intro Deck Giveaway

by Dredd77

First of all, we’d like to thank everyone who participated in our latest comment contest for a New Phyrexia Intro Pack- we had a lot of great remarks and insights, and they always make the site richer. It would be impossible to pick just one for distinction- so thank goodness we do these randomly and let do all the work!

The contest this time had a twist, as we let the readers decide the deck to be given away based on the amount of feedback (a bit like an “applause-o-meter”). The deck that had the most discussion around it- and the one we’ll be awarding- is Artful Destruction!

Thanks to the mighty powers of, we’re pleased to announce that the winner of the contest is btspike. We’ll be sending btspike an email shortly, and get the deck out the door!

If you didn’t win, don’t worry- there’s another deck giveaway going on right now… and a few other surprises ahead!

    Hey Ertai, I like reading your column and I wonder if you’ll ever do reviews of Ravnica and Guildpact block preconstructed decks. I’d also like if you’d review Betrayers’s Spiritcraft precon, because I remember it was my first Magic deck 🙂

      Yes, yes, and yes! It’s going to take awhile, but we intend to review every last precon here eventually. Your first question in particular raises a great point. Over the past year of doing this, we’ve evolved our methodology somewhat. At first, we thought we’d review randomly, picking a deck here or there (you’ll see a few loners in our archives). Then we thought it would make for more cohesive reviews if we did a set at a time, so we started doing it that way permanently. After awhile, we further realised that we’d have better staging and insight if we reviewed the decks in block order, so we can see how sets (and their decks) evolved. Look at the history of Infect decks for Scars block, and you’ll see growth and development, things we might miss if we went out of sequence.

      So long story short, we did Dissension before we came to this conclusion, so it’s definitely on the list go go back and start with Ravnica at some point- those decks are just too fun to resist for long! For that reason, though, it will be some time before we get to Betrayers, much as we’d love to. We’ll have to do Champions first, and then come back to it later.

      Thanks for the comment!
