Palace Jailer: The Story

Once in awhile you stumble over a card you have not seen in play anywhere and which seems quite good. You test it out and it is most likely not good enough – after all there is probably a reason why you have not seen it anywhere. Sometimes though, it suprises you and you test it further: You think it is „playable“ or at least […]

Building 5C or HowToGoMad Part 2: The Learnings

Months have passed since my first piece on building 5C. Months that felt like years. That’s the way it should be I guess. Life happens. But the 5C quest still exists. And you know what: I haven’t changed my current 5C list for about two months. It’s REALLY good. But to get there wasn’t easy and I still don’t play it well enough. No practice, […]

Breaking Midrange

Breaking Midrange I am a midrange player by accident. The 100 cards I owned at the time fit the midrange strategy, when I started playing Highlander 2012. Now my cardpool allows me to play almost any deck, be it combo, aggro or control. After my infamous MGM 5 performance (35th Place) with artifact combo I am curious to combine midrange and combo. Partially inspired by […]

New best creature in HL! Everyone missed it! Almost …

First of all: I will go as hype as never before in this article and whenever you think it goes too far – it doesn’t. 2016 was the year of surprises. Most were unfortunate. BUT YOU LIKELY MISSED THE BIGGEST ONE. A positive one at that! The unlikeliest surprise of all (and by that I do mean unlikelier than Trump and all that other stuff): […]

Revisiting Archetypes with Shadows over Innistrad

Revisiting Archetypes is one of the most fun things for me. If I build a deck and it feels not quite strong enough, I whisper to it “I will come back to you, don’t worry, soon, very soon” and gently put it back into the Deckbox. And by soon I mean 4-5 Sets, until a few cards get released that grab my attention and remind […]

Building 5C or HowToGoMad Part 3: The Tournament

Hello everyone. The journey to make 5C Aggro work in Highlander, regarding deck list and improving my play has finally gotten kinda good. Boosted by the incredible find of and a lot of fine tuning through many testing sessions with Lukhan I managed to get to the Top 8 at the Highlander Cup in Bischofsheim this year. It’s still the biggest European tournament of our […]

Metagame Masters 6 Tournament Report

Before the Tournament MGM6 was no different to MGM5 in regard to deck selection: I was again pretty clueless. Everything I tried – Temur Kiki-Tempo, Esper Tempo, Mardu Lowrange – felt so close to eachother in powerlevel but also had weak spots I couldn’t ignore. I didn’t feel particularly good about any deck really. And that has been a continuing theme of the past few […]
