    So, chaosisorder brought me some Japanese Oreos at East. FatherVenom and I ripped them open this weekend, taste-tested them, and baked them into chocolate chip cookies. They are fruity flavors and we mixed them all up so we don't know which cookie is which flavor >:) Hope you're all feeling adventurous tomorrow night!

    well, other than Magic. In the time since PAX she's probably played upward of 90 hours of MTG, either with me using random decks or on Duels2012. She actually beats me now, it's amazing and mortifying at the same time.

    As the resident Magic Guy (Started back in 97 & play regularly with the MA, RI, & Conn champions) this sparks my interest. JJ Foley's isn't necessarily the best place to play (beer + cards = sad) but if you're interested pack some decks & I'll show up with an assortment of difficulties. Format doesn't really matter but commander is probably too long of a time investment... unless you're down with that. I have a very fun EDH deck if that's really what you want to do. Or 2HG potentially. Punzie knows how to play and I can usually wrangle at least one game out of her.

    I won't be able to come this month, due to hardcore work with a consultant this week- but for MTG, what ruleset do you use? Legacy, Vintage, Current Block, Extended?

    I have a hellacious monoblack vintage/legacy (not sure which atm) deck, and at least two in-block decks- I'd have to check, since they keep rotating on me. Those are pure Zendikar block :P

    Do you use Proxy rules? I don't use many, but some of them could be addressed ahead of time (I probably have enough black fetchlands, I just prefer a variety in a normal battle scenario :P) but some I just can't afford yet (Black Lotus, Mana Vault.. uh.. I actually think that might be it for "Yea can't buy that right now" but it might be a couple others) Proxies are under 10 total right now for that deck, and it probably could roll without them, it'd just be less efficient.

    Like I said in the previous post, Format's not really an issue. That said, I'm absolutely not bringing my T1 dredge to JJ's. The tables even after busing can be sticky and it's a restaurant. I'm not plopping my $800 deck down in a place where beer spills are frequent. Sorry. Feel free to bust out your vintage deck if you feel like laying out some uncontested smack down but we'll only be playing 1 game of that before I quit.

    Oddly enough I don't have a current Type 2 deck built. I HATE Innistrad block. I play with as little of the sets as I can. That coupled with trying to save money & EDH being very fun & prevalent in my gaming circles have led me to not laying down the cash to build a new deck. Closest thing I have is a pauper deck I built for a tourney when Zendikar was legal. I'll bring it, but it was pauper back then & Innistrad's power creep was ridiculous (despite WotC's assurances to rein it in this cycle) so it's not going to be super competitive. C tier if that.

    I played very little Magic at PAX. I try to only do things I can't do otherwise. But I built decks mostly to play with casual players. Legacy rules, but not legacy competitive decks.

    I will have on me tomorrow:
    Legacy Thallids - a fun deck that is built to withstand multiplayer without any real oomph.
    EDH Project Group Hug - another fun deck specific to the EDH format (mtgcommander.net for details) that helps out the whole table so everyone can have a blast with this fun format (WARNING: This deck can cause multiple hour games. If that's not your thing we shouldn't start this.)
    Pauper Infect - a much more competitve deck using the pauper format (commons only) from last year when Zendikar - New Phyrexia was in standard
    Legacy RippleRats - a funny deck, very glass cannon (few proxies that won't impact any games)

    I will not be bringing these decks again unless specifically requested. The non-EDH decks will be available for loan during the night to responsible individuals with the caveat that when I'm headed for home they're coming with me.

    Scratch my enthusiasm (seriously, why do I bother using that emotion anymore? It never ends well for me) for showing up tonight. New (and first, woo) client needs me to enter crunch mode and whip out a few dozen storyboard layouts by tomorrow afternoon and girlfriend has piles of homework, so we wont be there THIS month. Stupid reality, never working MY way.

    Next month is a definite, though.

    My Zendikar decks have absolutely no innistrad atm, probably would be destroyed by 'em, but that's fine.

    My monoblack, I probably won't bring whenever I came, but it's a randomization deck- I either have to mulligan like crazy, or wait for it to cascade- so it actually pretty much is going to lose without heavy mulliganing about 60% of the time. It abuses some rare mechanics to be mostly funny in vintage tournaments because no one expects the gravestorm inquisition.

    I know it's a whole month away but I got requests to bring my magic decks again so they'll be there this month.

    Also I'll be bringing my modified Onyxia WoW TCG raid deck. It's a lot of fun so if this interests you feel free to bring a WoW deck. People played a dungeon crawl this past month so it's very doable.

    I'll be bringing Lords of Waterdeep, Ascension, my mtg decks, & my Onyixa WoW tcg raid deck.

    If someone has Bang I'd like to play that. I'll check if Aryooki can bring it but they said last month they'd probably be a no-show this month as well.

    Someone PM the night before so I can remember Arson's umbrella this time...

OP updated with the October information, but I'm not entirely sure that I will be able to make it. All depends on how my work travel schedule pans out. If not, I may need a volunteer to bring some games down . . .

    @gigabrain - cool, it'll be good to see you again!

    @Kiashien - I don't think I've seen you since East last year, so it'd be great to catch up. I've got my copy of Zombicide, but haven't played it yet (just haven't had enough time!) . . .

    @khadour Despite being in the boston area, technically, due to working all the way up in Ipswich, this has to sadly be a special event for me- it's really hard for me to come on a weekday It doesn't take any actual time off per say, but I do have to organize to leave early, what train I'll take into boston, etc.

    Kind of annoying, since at my last job you literally would have been less than 30 seconds away!

    It'll be nice if I can come and see you and @gigabrain especially since I owe him a good meal!
