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......
Last week, I received lot of great feedback from different sources for Doug P's video on Jund. He was able to show that Jund DOES indeed take skill to pilot properly. Today, I am happy to share another Doug P video as he decides to test Mono Red. Enjoy!

Hey everyone, KYT here with a quick last-minute update before the beginning of GP Washington. My good friend, Adam Yurchick, has been unsure of which deck to play and I offered to playtest with him during the last two nights. We played a LOT of Magic and most of the...
Mana Deprived started with a bang last week with 6 posts in 5 days. Unfortunately, do not expect this to be the norm. As mentioned in the opening post of this site, the aim is to only publish one post per week in an effort to not burn myself out....
Hi everyone, my name is Tom Cheung and this is my first time writing a tournament report for manadeprived.com. I played Mythic Conscription in the National Qualifier on May 15th and won 1st place. This is my first time winning a National Qualifier. My last successful finish was when I...
