New PDT members?

zechnophobe: Cohesion:
A little discussion about the future of warlord. Kinda shooting from the hip, so this isn't a Design Diary. Hmm, speaking of design Diary's, someone remind me to write one this weekend, the two new members of the PDT would appreciate it I'm sure ;). Anyhow, Cohesion is the topic of the day, and I'm writing about it from a complete set standpoint.
Yes Jeremy, they would. Consider yourself reminded...

Mat's Tuesday round-up

OK, another in our irregular series of "best of the site" posts in so much as they relate to Warlord.
  • Starting off, Jeremiah has some advice on avoiding theft at an event - happy to say this has never happened to me, but then, don't have massive events on the scale of GenCon on this side of the pond.
  • Following on from this, Todd discusses deckbuilding and comes out as one of those "evil net deckers" who we all really know don't actually exist at higher tiers of play
  • Laurence has talked about the inspiration behind a deck, and has gone on to give advice on shuffling and why deck-backing is bad for your health...
  • It appears that Pete is reading Chris's mind again, as his post on playing the player as well as the game is apparently something Chris was planning on writing, good advice though - think of a CCG game as like Poker, don't give tells.
  • Finishing off, Chris has an article on building decks around combos and also a review of the card he considers to be the 5th most influential on the environment from Eye of the Storm
Also, in the comments to Chris' post on Combos, Pete links to this handy site on the odds of drawing a specific combo.

Mat's Friday Warlord picks

OK, this has taken off very quickly, and I'm both very impressed and very annoyed; why didn't I do this 6 months ago when I first had the idea? Ah well, such is life.

Pete's article is actually an excellent example of the sort of thing I want to encourage; the post is inspired by a comment at Jeremy's Blargh!, and is effectively a rebuttal of another players opinion. Debate is good; exchanging opinions and ideas is part of what makes this sort of site useful. Feel free to comment, critique and disagree. Keep it civil and we're all good.

Columnists should, of course, feel free to link to other articles here, and disagree with them completely if they wish. Debate is good. Cool beans!

Some great columns up

I guess I better start doing my job huh?

Here in the Warlord section there are a few new columns up over the last day or so. The first set by Jeremiah talks about attended major tournaments, what to bring and what to prepare. As soon as I have access to my blog, I'll expand on that a bit talking about tournament etiquette.

Chris Dyer has completed his article on the importance of the first turn and has also added an article about luck.

Laurence gives a unique take on deckbuilding in his column today.

And lastly this morning, we have two guest columns up today. One on speed of play by Tyra and another take on luck by PeterVG.

Welcome to Warlord TaKtiX. Glad to have you reading.
