Happy New Year Mysidians! In what has turned out to be my final time playing FFTCG in 2018, I went 2-1 in a four player round robin. It was a really fun locals, even though most the usual crowd was busy with their holidays. We also had a special gust this week, as my cousin from Argentina was visiting Vancouver. The morning of the locals I taught him how to play FFTCG, and he ended up playing several exhibitions at Magic Stronghold that night. He said he is going to check if the game is available in Argentina, but I have heard it isn’t available in Brazil, so I doubt it is officially support in Argentina either (although he should be able to find some Spanish cards online if he is really interested).
This week I took a break from Mono Earth and decided to try something different. I had been testing a lot with Mono Wind and Mono Ice in the last few weeks, and I settled on Mono Wind, because it just felt more consistent. My deck list can be found here.
Hello mages, welcome back to The Mysidia Post eh! This weekend I decided to take a trip down to Everett, Washington, for a little FFTCG at the Geeky Villain gaming store. For reference, I live in Vancouver, Canada; and it is about a 2-3 hour drive depending on the border wait (waiting for my Nexus card to come in the mail!).
However, that isn’t so bad as I loaded up a bunch of podcasts, including the Crystal Tower Podcast by Alex Hancox, and the Live from Midgar Podcast, by the folks at Geeky Villain. I highly recommend both podcasts if you have not listened to them before.
Hello Mysidians, and welcome to The Mysidia Post! Right off the bat I want to say that I didn’t go 0-4 this week, I don’t think I would have had the heart to write about this deck again if I had a losing record tonight. Unfortunately, we had a slower week with only 9 players coming out, so our event at Magic Stronghold was only 3 rounds.
I tried my Mono Earth Prishe deck again, with some adjustments that I will cover after my match recap. Overall my night went much better this week, as I went 2-1 and came 2nd overall based on tiebreakers, earning me some store credit and a foil promo.
Hello and welcome to the first of many Locals Rundown series. My name is Alex and I will be talking about our first week of Opus VII here at Magic Stronghold in Vancouver (we received our product a week late so this is the first week we all had our new cards). After spending a good amount of time working on an Earth Fire deck and a Mono Earth Prishe deck, I decided to play Mono Earth at my weekly locals event. I did quite a bit of playtesting, both in person and online, and I felt the Prishe deck was very strong. The list I ended up with is the following:
Alex is a FFTCG player from Vancouver, Canada. His favourite Final Fantasy is IV and his favourite Elements are Earth and Ice, although he has a soft spot for fire.
