Good morning! :D
I hope that everyone is doing well.
Yesterday I was able to spend a few hours playing edh and tiny leaders with some friends, and while there I had the chance to take a few photos of an alter I did a couple of months ago:
YAY I finally have shots of it when it was finished!! Woot!
In other awesome news, a friend of mine asked me if I had any plans for having more edh decks, and I replied that I was planning on making a Saffi Eriksdotter one (another friend altered a Saffi for me :D!!). Well, for about ten minutes he was going through some cards, then handed me a stack of them. I gave him the "questioning look" for a while, and then he mumbled "something about birthdays." XD EEEE! :'D (My birthday is on tuesday, so he pretty much gave me most of an edh deck.) I was doing the almost silent squeeing scream for a few minutes. Gahhhh soooo much awesome!!
I also wanted to mention some information about the Tiny Leaders format, for those of you who haven't heard of it yet.
It is very similar to edh, but with a few differences:
-generally played one on one.
-your general (aka. 'tiny leader', and all other cards cannot have a converted mana cost over 3. However, cards with X in their cost, like Entreat the Angels, will count X as 0. Bwahahah!)
-50 card decks instead of 100
-25 life instead of 40
The rest of the rules are pretty much the same as edh.
Here is the official tiny leaders facebook group, and the tiny leaders blog. Also, here is the tiny leaders subreddit.
It is a really fun format, and I really enjoy the challenge of building a solid deck with nothing costing over 3 mana. I'm certainly no expert deck builder, but I do really enjoy it! :D
I really hope that this format sees more growth!!
I hope you have an awesome day! :D
