Quote In our second game, he opens with Forest, Skyshroud Elite, and Ghazban Ogre (via Elvish Spirit Guide).
I open with a pathetic Underground Sea.

He Rancors up the Elite, serves for six, then plays a second Forest and Rogue Elephant.

I Vampiric Tutor for Chalice of the Void at the end of his turn, untap, and play Mox Ruby, Mox Pearl, and Tolarian Academy. Then I play Chalice for one followed by Balance.

An agonized howl filled my house after he read the card text - thrice.

All these stories aside, however, it's time for control decks to stop maindecking Chalice. I hinted at this last October. I wrote in "Maximizing Mirrodin, Part V":

"Chalice just adds more randomness in the sense that it makes too big a difference who's going first, who knows what the other guy is playing, and who has a particular card in the opening hand. Hell, if Chalice remains unrestricted and combo is shut out, the next step is for smart players to drop Chalice and get an advantage over the surviving decks by having less dead cards."

Ladies and gentlemen, he's finally done it. Rakso's signature has grown so large that it's spilled over to his Apprentice greeting.

Here's the key to making the articles small enough to fit in one page:

(OMG, half as long! Seriously, an IRC nick?)

I was pleased to see the B&R announcement mentioned without the words "Back to Basics" in the same article.
