Meaningless vars

2017-03-22

Today I was hit by a bug in my JS code. Now that's not a particular miraculous event; those things happen frequently as you develop. This one was particular strange and I'd like to explain it to you. It's kind of a puzzle but hard to give in a small ...


The Pirate Warrior

2017-03-13

This is the deck I have the most experience with so far. I started playing it in the January ('16) ladder after playing some mediocre jade druid runs. This was the second month in "the new meta" and pirate warrior was quite abundant at this point. ...


Lovely stones

2017-03-10

So after a brief reprieve with Magic: The Gathering it didn't take me long to abandon it in favor of something that could satisfy my desire to actually, you know, play the game. I turned to Hearthstone. A decision I did not take lightly but wanting t...


New Ajax Fetching

2016-12-05

Out with the old in with the new? While lazily googling for a simple ajax one liner for a toy project I kept getting jquery results. Thanks for that. Actually had to remember the "xmlhttprequest" garble which turned up the default mdn page which gave...


Dull Fires

2016-12-03

I've never really built a deck before so starting one now was a bit of a challenge. I'd say I've got medium knowledge of the deep rules and synergies but whenever I read up on cards I seem to learn something new. Or a new combo trick I hadn't conside...


Kaladesh Moon booster box stats

2016-11-20

The last for now is the Kaladesh booster box. These are the stats for one booster box. A box contains 36 boosters. A booster contains 15 magic cards and one marketing card. The booster has "slots" for rarity; 1 land or random foil card, 1 rare, 3 unc...


Eldritch Moon booster box stats

2016-11-20

Next up is Eldritch Moon. These are the stats for one booster box. A box contains 36 boosters. A booster contains 15 magic cards and one marketing card. The booster has "slots" for rarity; 1 land or random foil card, 1 rare, 3 uncommon, 1 flip card, ...


Origins booster box stats

2016-11-20

The second box I opened was Magic: Origins. This is the last basic set to date and it showed. Especially after having opened a box of Shadows over Innistrad this box was a little disappointing. Not in the least because you could really sense the drop...


Innistrad booster box stats

2016-11-20

I've learned that the composition and distribution of magic cards and their rarity is a rather complex one. I won't pretend to know all about it and I can't claim to be a statistician but I can show you what the results of my booster box was and refl...


The Magic of precons

2016-11-19

I remember a friend, he was one or two years old than me, was proudly showing this new game to somebody else. "This will make me rich. I can take all your money if I win!". I had no idea what he was talking about. It was a card game and the rules wer...
