    Join whiffy as he rambles on about playing the meta, building a classic collection and shows off multiple "budget" decks for people thinking about making a jump in to classic but are thwarted by the perceived unattainable buy in with $70.00 counterspells and $350.00 mana bases. An interesting and informative read for any one from the diehards to the extended and standard players with a passing interest.

    Last week, Pete proposed a rotation schedule for Classic sets that would have Mirage block, Tempest block, etc., as well MEDII & MEDIII, reappear every four years, allowing future players a chance to obtain these staples. He left for this week two big issues: what to do with MEDI and how to get people to actually open the Classic sets like Mirage.

    Given all the conflux about Alara, Sebastian returns to an older time, a time before shifting planes. Rune Drafting brings you the final Tempest draft (as they no longer fire frequently enough!). (Didn't Tempest shift planes as well?)
