Breaking Rites: Standard Grixis Reanimator

Jul 31, 2013

Hello Magic players, and welcome to a special edition of Jake’s Standard decks. Usually, I like to stick to mono-colored budget decks, but this time I’m willing to break the bank. Featured this week is a deck that I co-designed with my friend Trevor: Grixis Reanimator. With this gem of a deck, it’s totally possible to bring in a turn 3...

Complete his challenges successfully, and they will be given back the TARDIS and set free; fail and they remain in his playroom as...

The Smurfs 2 Review

The Smurfs 2 Review

Jul 29, 2013

When they announced that there would be a live action version of The Smurfs featuring CG copies of some of the worst characters cartoons have to offer, I was not happy. Then it was revealed that Neil Patrick Harris, one of my favorite actors who deserves to have much bigger staring movie roles than he has received, was going to be the human element of the worst...

Innistrad’s Last Stand: Standard Mono-White Humans

Jul 27, 2013

That’s right, folks! It’s time for another of my budget Standard brews. This time, I’m dissecting one of my older Standard decks that I got good results with at the last few Game Days: Mono-White Humans.

Runescape 3 Review

Runescape 3 Review

Jul 26, 2013

Runescape holds an interesting place in my heart. I know the game is pretty terrible and that it is not fun, but I can’t help but go back to it occasionally. They have upgraded the game in significant ways before; the two most important being the Grand Exchange and adding both active and passive skills. The latter actually added some depth to the game and...

The Wolverine Review

The Wolverine Review

Jul 25, 2013

X-Men Origins: Wolverine managed to make X-Men: The Last Stand look good in comparison, and with both of them being, at minimum, relatively terrible movies, that’s saying something. The Wolverine was Fox’s chance to show that they can make a good movie focused on the character. If the trailers were anything to indicate, it didn’t seem like that was going to...
