Over the past weekend, TCGPlayer.com held a 5k tournament in Hartford. 13 year old Noah Walker managed to go undefeated in the 9-rounded Swiss portion of the tourney. Not only that, he managed to finish in 2nd place, losing to a Brilliant Ultimatum deck in the finals. I got in...
Jund takes a lot more skill than people think to pilot and Doug has decided to do a few more videos to display that fact. Just because you have 4 mana does not mean you should be auto-playing a Bloodbraid Elf. Doug P hopes followers of Mana Deprived can appreciate...
We all forget things, right? Some quick tidbits on points I feel I failed to address or just plain forgot... I went back and re-checked what Jon tweeted at me. He said: Really interested in: SB thoughts, Detailed accounts of your losses, Advice for mirror, Thoughts on medmage vrs lands...
Jon Medina requested some nuggets of knowledge from me as he plans to sleeve up NLB for a PTQ tomorrow. I top 8ed with Next Level Bant a few weeks ago and today, I finished 5-2 at a PTQ. I am nowhere near Kibler in terms of player strength, but...

Doug P has been taking over the video department for the last little while, so it feels good to be back. I asked my Twitter followers what they wanted to see and they all answered Turboland. Unfortunately, Turboland is not the complete subject of this post. It is about my...
[Today, I am posting up a tournament report submitted to me by Davies Clarke, otherwise known as Sprout (his deck at his first FNM was Mono Green Saprolings). Sprout is a member of Team Face, arguably the most competitive team in Quebec, and this year's Nationals Qualifier marks his first...
Wizards should be posting the top 8 of the GP soon on their official tournament website, but for those of us who wish to be working with the new tech as soon as possible, I have done the hard labor of translating the results that I have found. I hope...
Game 2 of our epic match against Michael J Flores. The video for Game 1 brought us an all-time high of 200+ unique visitors. Thank you! Quick shout-outs once again to both burn3000 and net_vagabond for not only having the patience to watch the match unfold in real-time, but for...
In perhaps the most entertaining video to date, the two core members of Mana Deprived (Doug P & myself) take on the legendary Michael J Flores. Flores wanted someone to play Brad Nelson's GP-winning deck against his Eldrazi creation. Obviously, we insta-volunteered. Here is the first game of our testing......
