It’s Play Time!

Saturday, 19 May, 2012

Gotta play MTG (Magic the Gathering) again! My boyfriend is still working on our decks and I’m still unsure of what I really like to play. Haha. I’m torn between UW Delver and RG Aggro. The last time I playtested Delver, it wouldn’t synchronize with me. So hard to get a good hand even if I shuffled it to the best way I can. Plus, it was taking me too long to think of my moves and responses. Thanks to Snapcaster Mage and plenty of Instant and Sorcery for giving me lots of options and sometimes, headache!

MTG Cards - Snapcaster Mage

As for RG Aggro, we still need lots of cards to complete the deck. Even if we convert his Kessig Ramp into RG Aggro, we still have to spend more on 3 Sword of War and Peace. And as far as I know, it costs P1500 right now. I wonder if there are still people selling it for P1000-P1200 especially that the MTG Grand Prix is fast-approaching.

Based on our latest playtest, it seems that I’m getting acquainted and synched with my new deck – UW Delver. So I might use it if we won’t be able to complete RG Aggro in time.

Playing MTG is super fun!

P.S. I’ve been collecting Angel cards since the release of Avacyn Restored. Cute Angel

My Dark Ascension Prerelease Experience

Dark Ascension PR Passes

Dark Ascension PR Passes

Ok, so enough with the excitement and what not. My Dark Ascension prerelease didn’t turn out good. My boyfriend and I came late for the morning flight so we had our lunch before registering for the afternoon pods. We were at the venue before 12 noon but because there were so many players ahead of us, we have to wait for our turn. And that was around 3PM. I have to admit, I got bored while waiting.

As I received my 3 packs of Innistrad and 3 packs of Dark Ascension, I opened them right away and sorted the cards. Nothing that impressive until a friend of mine opened one of the Dark Ascension packs thinking that he has better luck than me. True enough, he opened a pack with double mythic! Thanks AP for the Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Huntmaster of the Fells // Ravager of the Fells!

I was obsessed with the idea of building a deck around Mikaeus, the Unhallowed but then again, the BBB cc scared me off. Plus, my black cards weren’t enough. And I wanted to use Huntmaster of the Fells at the same time! Going for Jund? Nah. I ended up with Naya since I have good white creats and removal spells. Though it was fun building a deck and getting new cards, I was still disappointed at the end of the day. Just finished 1-3 and my only win was against my boyfriend. IL. Intentional Loss, Intense Love. ROTFL.

Excited for the Dark Ascension Prerelease

Thursday, 19 January, 2012

Viewing Dark Ascension spoilers makes me love Humans even more! I’m using UW Humans deck and so excited to grab some goodies this coming prerelease.

Possible Needs:
3 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
4 Loyal Cathar // Unhallowed Cathar

Ultimate Wants:
Sorin, Lord Of Innistrad
Huntmaster of the Fells // Ravager of the Fells

Of course I want Sorin, Lord Of Innistrad! Money rare! Haha.

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad

I’m waiting for the complete visual spoiler to finalize my needed cards. My boyfriend and I will be playing at the PR this 28th. That’s big thanks to my deck for scoring us two PR passes.

Yay! Go Humans! Cute Pink Bunny

Quick November Updates

Thursday, 10 November, 2011

I’ve got lots of blogs and I have to schedule some blog posts just to have fresh content. For Pinkville, I have so many pending updates but I don’t have the luxury of time to blog them all. So here is just a quick recap of what happened for the past ten days.

– I had a great bonding time with my sister in Batangas. I also super enjoyed my stay because there were lots of food especially Pinoy delicacies.

– I have finally updated the themes of 2 of my blogs. Few more to go!

– I did great with my personal link building campaign! Guest posting, article marketing and directory submissions seem to be effective. Some of my new blogs got PR now. This blog is stuck with PR2 though.

– I stumbled upon a set of animated emoticons and I’ll be using them more often! Cute Wink

– I enjoyed playtesting with bf! It’s been a while since we last joined an MTG tournament and I’m getting ready for it.

– And finally, we made it to our first MTG tournament after the official release of Innistrad! I used UW Humans and finished 2-1-1.
Solar Flare: 2-1
Kessig: 2-0
Solar Flare: 1-1-1
Solar Flare: 0-2

Oh, well! Crazy meta! I won one prize pack and got Inferno Titan. So much for being mythic! I’ll be happier with Liliana of the Veil!

MTG Solar Flare Decks

Grrrr... Just when I had no playstests against them...

– Something unexpected happened last night. It was so stressful and I had my “tiis-ganda” moments wearing my stiletto. Not only that, it’s a matter of life or death…

These are the things that I can recall for now. I’ll just update this post if I remember something. Right now, I hate the stupid things happening around me!

Animated - I hate them!

No To Month-Ender MTG Tournament

No To Month-Ender MTG Tournament


Too bad, we missed today’s month-ender MTG tournament at Padi’s Point, SM North Edsa (Sky Garden). It’s so ironic because the venue is the same culprit for our absence. Yeah, we drunk to our heart’s content last night and we finished around 3AM.

We called it “hot chix” bonding, a.k.a. double date. I never imagined drinking at the rooftop while gazing at the stars and staring at Eurotel could be that mesmerizing. Lol.

And I never thought, we’ll be missing the tournament I’ve been playtesting for. Seems that my deck will be back to the drawing board without experiencing ultimate action in the battlefield. Oh well… the meta keeps changing but my deck isn’t moving. Gaahhhh…. sooo frustrating!

It’s really difficult to choose between fun and excitement. They always go together. And the double happiness last night kinda justifies my frustration today. Happy Animated Lovers

Starting September 24, it would be the season of neck-biters and moon-howlers again. Yes, you’ll see lots of vampires and werewolves in magical action!

Unfortunately, I an my boyfriend won’t be able to join the PR. We’re saving up for our much needed cards. I didn’t even pre-order an Innistrad booster box. We are allotting our cash on singles rather than getting six random packs. Of course we will miss the fun but there will be more PR to come, right?

Booster Box and Flowers

Booster Box and Flowers

As I arrived from my SG and KL tour, I felt his warmest welcome through flowers, hugs and kisses. 🙂


Now that it’s our third anniversary, I really feel lucky to have him and more kilig as I recall our happy and wonderful moments together. No dates for today. No tulips. No phonecalls. Just text messages and emails. We’ll celebrate next week. Though, it’s not actually necessary for we are always living our BF-GF life as if it’s our anniversary. 🙂 (One of the secrets of healthy relationship!)

What’s with the image?
Magic: The Gathering Booster Box (with Sol and red roses)! MTG – our common interest. Now, this is something relevant to the blog theme – Pink & Magic Convergence Zone. Hehe. I miss playing! Haven’t joined any other tourneys this year except for Regionals and 2 Pre-releases. *sigh*

Just realized that we had celebrated it in advance already. 🙂 Hmmm. I’m getting forgetful! Hang over of “A Moment to Remember”? Oh yeah, that super touching Korean movie! I’ll blog about it later…
