Pojo's Book Reviews




with Fletcher Peatross

So what do you think? That's what I'm wondering most. How do you like the site's changes?

How do you like the new writers? Are the articles of a quality that will keep you reading their columns?

We want to hear from you, give us that feedback. Positive? Negative? Just send it in. Email us at and tell us what you think. If you don't want to email, just check out the survey on the front page. We really do appreciate your feedback.

In other news, States looms closer and closer and the decks are hitting the websites fairly slowly. I think many are afraid of revealing their tech, or revealing that they have no tech. What do we know? G/R is obviously one of the best decks. Fatties, and bears, and burn oh my. It is THE deck to worry about. If you can't beat it, don't come. If you can go 50/50, being the State Champion is about luck anyway, so get lucky. If you can beat it every time, send me your deck so I can use it.

A few other decks are making a splash as well. Kai Budde's U/G Opposition deck and quite a few versions of U/B/W control are springing up. The question is, can they stop the power of burn? Can you stop Flametongue Kavu?

Finkel may be the best card in T2 right now, but I can think of so many cards that kill it that are just RED that its not funny.

Has everyone forgotten about Bridge Wildfire? From US Nats last year, David Bachmann's deck:

David Bachmann
Bridge Wildfire

Main Deck

2 Dust Bowl
19 Mountain
4 Rishadan Port

4 Ensnaring Bridge
4 Fire Diamond
3 Grafted Skullcap
3 Millstone
4 Pillage
4 Pyroclasm
3 Seal of Fire
4 Stone Rain
2 Tectonic Break
4 Wildfire

4 Boil
3 Brutal Suppression
4 Flowstone Wall
4 Urza's Rage

Now some of this is no longer available due to the rotation of the set, but we've gained some nice new stuff. You lose Tectonic Break, Dust Bowl, Rishadan Port, Seal of Fire, and out of the sideboard Brutal Suppression and Flowstone Wall. Boil is basically useless in today's environment as it may kill one or two islands total. And essentially the land kill is not as good without the ports, bowls, and breaks.

Pojo States Deck

I'll let you have at it. Millstone the anti-red deck, burn out anyone else.

Lastly, I'll recommend a website. Misetings. Its been referred to as the Onion for Magic. Its got some more adult type humor, but I laughed very hard when I found it.

Oh, and one last thing. We are still looking for a quality 5-color columnist. Send me your articles to and I'll tell you what I think.
