Oops! I forgot to share my Theros update!

I updated the pauper cube for Theros, but totally forgot to share that with you here. While it’s terribly late for an update, I guess this is an early holiday gift?

May all your picks be sick and your drafts be sweet through the end of 2013 and into the new year!

Magic 2014 Update

If you aren’t following me over at Gathering Magic, it’s easy to miss when the updates slide in. Check out what made the cut from Magic 2014.

Dragon’s Maze Pauper Cube Update (And Modern Masters Wish List)

May 11, 2013 6 comments

While I shared it over on Gathering Magic a couple weeks ago, the Dragon’s Maze Pauper Cube update is still a fast turn around compared to previous updates. If you want the details, you’ll have to check them out over there.

Don’t worry. It’s not long.

Gatecrash Pauper Cube Update (with Dragon’s Maze Peek)

April 21, 2013 3 comments

While Dragon’s Maze is almost upon us, it’s time to finish sharing what I did to the Pauper Cube for Gatecrash. The complete update, with explanations of changes, is available on Gathering Magic. The spreadsheet, now with a ‘Change Log’ tab, is updated as well.

I’ll be travelling to Pro Tour San Diego to write as part of the official coverage team, so I’ll be working ahead to get the Dragon’s Maze update finished as soon as possible. Keep an eye on the change log in the spreadsheet, and expect an article earlier this time. If you have any questions just leave them in the comments below!

Return to Ravnica Update

December 9, 2012 16 comments

Two quick hits:

  1. The Return to Ravnica update is up. In fact, it’s been up for awhile. What I had been working on was finishing…
  2. A new spreadsheet is available as a GoogleDoc. The chorus of requests to switch from Excel to Google were rewarded.


The Magic 2013 Pauper Cube Update!

The wait is over. I’ve posted a short, sweet, and informative Magic 2013 update at Gathering Magic.


The Pauper Cube and Avacyn Restored

June 4, 2012 8 comments

Let’s keep it short, sweet, and saucy.

I’ve written a thorough but brief update for Avacyn Restored.

If you want to cheat, skip to the full spoiler. You’ll be missing tons of awesome data and mana curves.

And yeah, that’s all there is to it!

The Dark Ascension Update Only Zombies Could Have Held Their Breath For

March 8, 2012 1 comment

If you missed that I have taken over the mantle of leadership for Gathering Magic I have some news for you: I’ve been busy.

Without further delay, you can find the complete update for the Pauper Cube with Dark Ascension in this article at Gathering Magic.

Feel free to leave comments here, or there, or anywhere you find Stybs. Enjoy!

A Token of Appreciation

November 14, 2011 4 comments

I’m not normally one for the slow roll, but when you’ve got the goods and want to milk something for all it’s worth it can be useful. A week ago I started tweeting obtuse hints. Some were more direct than others, but it’s time to reveal the truth.

That’s right: I’ve copied some of the biggest names in Magic. In the style of LSV’s or Conley’s token, and the fun of the Yo! MTG Taps! token pair, I’m sharing with you a way to play with the Stybs everywhere you go!

If you want to get your hands on one of these bad boys just make the time to meet me at Worlds, this Thursday through Sunday! Not going? No problem!  I’ll be working out the best way to get a copy in your hands, and it will probably involve and address swap. The details will follow.

Until then, enjoy considering the implications of attacking with me! (And, please, no chump blocks.)

This wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of the quite classy Inkwell Looter, so send any praise or scorn for art (and photographs) his way.

PS: You should also visit Gathering Magic today. It’s important for me too.
