  1. Why borderposts? They dont seem entirely necessary to be honest

  2. the dude is only running 20 land thats why.
    and to get two tokens out of kalni garden of course!

  3. Well, you can only pick up a basic with borderposts, so no double plants. But basically this deck wants to hit 5+ mana as soon as possible to drop all those tokens. The way it plays out a lot of the time I can hardcast a borderpost on turn 3 to play Pledge/Menace on turn 4, or combine with the other mana acceleration to do an early Martial Coup.

    Another nice side effect of borderposts is they let you pick up a land that's infected with Spreading Seas.

  4. Awesome blog you got here. I love this parody with the surprised animals.

  5. This is the one of my favorite Magic sites!

    I was wondering if you planned on making the Elephant, Wolf, and Snake tokens to go along with this picture?

  6. I'd like to do these tokens, but not sure how soon. Next token I do will be an ooze.
