|Where I will be the next couple years.|
So I spent all day yesterday getting my stuff together for LMU. If I hurry up on my financial aid stuff, I can get everything sorted out in time to start on Jan 10th. I am going in on Wednesday for academic advising so I can start registering for classes. I'm excited to be going back to school again. Expect this blog to slow down a little bit, since I'll be busy trying to get my shit together during the next couple of weeks.
Other than that, what else have I been up to? Well, I have officially given up on making my Big Red deck work in Standard. One day while I was play testing with Zach he asked me, "Why play that deck over Red Deck Wins? Are the match-ups different at all?" I basically had no real response to this. The match-ups were about the same, except my deck was clunkier but didn't roll over to Kor Firewalker. Basically there was no reason why I shouldn't be running Red Deck Wins. The problem though, is that Red Deck Wins isn't even very good right now. It hasn't been showing up in top 8 lists recently nor has it been getting much press. I wanted to play a deck like Red Deck Wins that was actually good. The solution was to play Boros.

I have started testing a Japanese list I found, and so far its been promising. You can see my list here. It was easy to switch to this deck since I already had like 90% of the cards for it. The next real Standard tournament is the Star City Games 5k in San Jose on January 15th. I think Luke and I are going to try and do a road trip up north for this, but we'll see. I start classes on the 10th, so going on a weekend trip at that point might be awkward.

The last thing I wanted to say is that the new Donkey Kong is amazing. It is also incredibly difficult, so its probably going to take a while for Luke and I to finish it. I imagine it will take Alito and Sotomayor even longer.
