Magic Origins has a surprising number of cool cards for the casual crowd.
Here is what I'm looking forward to :)
The Core Set has long been the cornerstone of the Magic: The Gathering universe over its 20+ year history, dating back to Alpha, Beta, Unlimited, and then Revised. One could always count on the core set to be the all-encompas...

Yes, I am THAT Guy in Casual Magic
The Mana Pool is one of my favourite Magic: the Gathering
podcasts, and one of the few geared towards casual players. The most recent episode, #377 Aaron’s Fifteen Minutes of Fame , hit home as Aaron talked about being THAT Casual guy: Aaron comes on to tal...

MTG: 11 Intriguing Casual Cards from Dragons of Tarkir
Due to some real life events, and the fact that Fate Reforged came out not that long ago, I haven't really gotten into Dragons of Tarkir as much as I would normally do for any new set. One rant before I begin: Where are all the frickin' baby dragons? WOTC...

MTG: 11 Intriguing Casual Cards from Fate Reforged
Fate Reforged is due out tomorrow, and, as always, there are a bunch of cards that are intriguing for this casual player. This set had to be built differently, as it is bridging two different draft formats. Fate Reforged will be drafted with Khans of Tarkir...

Random Rantings - Sucky Christmas Gift Edition
It's been far too long since I wrote something in this space. Like exercise, it's always hard to get started again when you've had a long layoff. So, here's some random brain dumpings. Do you need to give somebody a Christmas gift that says, "I want you out...

Inspired by The Mana Pool podcast, I give a little perspective from the point-of-view of a long-time casual Magic player.

Grand Prix Vegas - Casually Disappointed
Grand Prix Las Vegas 2015 was, by far, the biggest Magic: The Gathering tournament ever held. In addition to the 7,500+ players that played in the regular weekend event, several thousand also came for the side events and general shenanigans that surrounded ...

A Positive Post about Brands and Products
I've often ranted about terrible advertisements , the evils of unchecked capitalism, and overrated products . For once, I should write something positive. Not everything in this world annoys me. So, why not write about the brands, products, and stores that ...

A casual look at some KTK cards that excite me. :)
(Let's get this out of the way now...) Khans of Tarkir, the newest expansion for Magic: The Gathering, will be out Friday. After attending last weekend's prerelease (and somehow winning it!), and looking over all of the spoil...

If you love terrible service, dirty floors, and bland food, The Naam is the place for you. Instead of making tasty dishes that happen to be meatless, The Naam makes very bland dishes that are meant to make you hate eating, in general. The Naam lives off of its reputation of being 'the vegetarian place', but you are better off getting a vegetarian dish from any other restaurant.

Our local mall, but one I would travel to. Brentwood looks quite busy from the full parking lot, but is actually a lot less crowded and full of annoying brats than Metrotown or Lougheed. The Food Court selection is quite good (and not all chains) and there is a full range of shops here.
