A Magical Huffalump Resides Here

My name is Ed, I am a programmer. Just another dude with another blog. I like MTG, Open Source (more towards FREE software). I like sports, and eventually I hope to do business and do good for the world in general. This blog is gonna be about Magic The Gathering. Decklists and snippets will be posted here. It may lead somewhere or nowhere, as with all things arcane, that was bloody obvious =)

The deck was actually designed by Ken Ishimaru, who finished in the Top 8 of the Japanese Nationals with his creation, posting a 6-3-1 Standard record overall. The goal of the deck is to accelerate into a turn 2 Hypnotic Specter or Ohran Viper with the help of Birds of Paradise and Llanowar Elves. When this deck wins the die roll and gets out a turn 2 Specter or Viper, a control deck will have basically lost right there. Counterspells can't touch it yet and a Wrath of God is too slow. That is the main strength of the deck.
