Magic update

I'm also going to update on Magic. I didn't touch a Magic deck for the first two weeks of 2016. Friday at FNM, I played my Hardened Scales deck in standard, the last time before the new set becomes legal. I did awful, 1-3. It's a marginal deck that has to get lucky to do well against serious decks, and I just didn't.

This weekend was the prerelease for Oath of the Gatewatch. I went to the event today. My pool was lousy -- I didn't get much value and I didn't get cards that seemed to make much of a deck. I had far too little removal. Really, the only thing I had was bombs, so I ran what ramp I had and a bunch of high cost spells. After losing the first 2 rounds, I won the next 3, so I got one prize pack. My streak of winning the door prize lottery is also done -- I got sleeves.
