Hey all! Wally D here. Here’s what’s going on with MTG Casual Play. In a nutshell, not a lot. At the moment I’m knee deep in Dungeons & Dragons content creation with my Wally DM YouTube channel and I am writing a supplementary D&D Puzzle book to help DMs bring super cool non-combat encounters to their game. So am I done writing Commander articles? No, definitely not. But, it will be some time yet before I can jump back into it. In addition to that, if I do start writing again, I may decide to get back on that EDHREC train if they are allowing for old, retired writers to get back on without a ticket. If you have been following me, you will know that from 2016-2017 I was writing the Non-Basically Speaking articles over at EDHREC. They were a lot of fun. Check them out when you have time!
My name is Erich. I am new to the writing scene for MTG. I enjoying playing fun formats such as EDH/Commander, Modern, and anything involved with Chaos drafting. I am a father of three children that all play MTG. All of my kids play EDH/Commander and Modern. I will be writing about different subjects within our favorite game. I will write about Grand Prix and my time at each Grand Prix that I attend. I will also write about any SCG tournaments that i will go to also. I will also do some deck techs, decklists, articles and reviews, and finally a little about MTG cosplay through my eyes. With that being said, I am going to talk about one of my favorite types of decks. I will be talking about MILL, specifically EDH U/B MILL. I love MILL. When I say, “I love MILL,” I do mean that MILL is my second wife. I used to have a modern mill deck, but I no longer have that deck only because I wanted to do more than MILL in modern. However, I will build another MILL deck within the year so I can have it for a backup deck for my local FNM.
Continuing my series from last week, today we’re going to dive into the intellectually-developed world of Blue and their approach to social problems. Given Blue’s focus on self-improvement and knowledge, I think they’d be quite invested in the education system- Blue wants a society of free-thinking individuals. As with last week, I’m going to start with a disclaimer that this article is not meant to belittle anyone nor start an argument. Rather, in true-Blue fashion, it’s meant to be used as a sociological lens. Let’s begin.
I love to learn. It’s something central to my identity. They say you can’t learn via osmosis, but sometimes it really seems like I can- aside from the fact that osmosis is limited to transfer of water, of course! This part of me can have its downsides, of course. Sometimes, I sit in class and …
