I noticed that there are no threads for jokes or amusement on MSE (currently active), so I though I'd start this one. Also, I got an amusing email from www.prezi.com (which let's you make the coolest presentations). The best part: it began "Dear Lord,"

The site I got it from is really funny, but some are not "PG". I kept these at the PG level, but if you don't care check it out: http://xkcd.com/

those are pretty good!

So... I'm a real bastard. I play jund at the local FNM tournaments. I know that I shouldn't, I know it has a bad influence on the other players, and I know that it could lead to severe consequences in my future MTG life. Once ACR rotates out, I will have forgotten how to play magic! Right now its auto-pilate: 1st turn, savage lands. 2nd turn putrid leech. 3rd turn blightning. 4th turn blood braid elf to lightning bolt. 5th turn (HOLY SHIAT, I actually did this just last friday!!!) Bit Blast to BBE to Blightning! 6th turn broodmate dragon.

But i figured, as long as i have the cards, i might as well get the most use out of em as i can. I plan to trade away the pricey stuff like maelstrom pulse about 1 month after ROE comes out, when thier prices have stabilized (New Jace was at $40 right after WWK came out, i don't know what it is now but it CAN'T stabalize there, it just cant.) but right before ACR hits a stone cold drop. good plan.

Anyways, half the battle is recognizing the problem. As long as I am a user, I feel its not so bad if I am in denial about it. Because if i just lie to my self, if I am in denial about the fact that I win 50% of the time just because its jund, then I have a real problem.

Its not that I can't win without jund. I really can! I totally dominated with a pimped out cruel control deck.

Heres an approximate decklist that i threw together:

Spoiler:
// Lands
4 [ALA] Arcane Sanctum
4 [ALA] Crumbling Necropolis
3 [WWK] Creeping Tar Pit
3 [WWK] Celestial Colonnade
4 [CFX] Rupture Spire
2 [WWK] Halimar Depths
2 [WWK] Lavaclaw Reaches

// Creatures
4 [ARB] Wall of Denial
3 [ZEN] Sphinx of Jwar Isle

// Spells
4 [M10] Lightning Bolt
2 [WWK] Amulet of Vigor
1 [ZEN] Sorin Markov
1 [CFX] Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker
3 [ALA] Cruel Ultimatum
4 [ALA] Esper Charm
4 [CFX] Path to Exile
2 [WWK] Jace, the Mind Sculptor
2 [M10] Jace Beleren
4 [ALA] Ajani Vengeant
4 [ARB] Double Negative

// Sideboard
SB: 3 [M10] Flashfreeze
SB: 3 [ARB] Thought Hemorrhage
SB: 2 [WWK] Dispel
SB: 3 [M10] Deathmark
SB: 2 [M10] Pithing Needle
SB: 2 [ALA] Swerve
SB: 3 [ZEN] Day of Judgment

So, Side board isn't exactly 15 cards. I fine tuned it to be a very solid deck, but that list is the general jist of it. I desigend it specifically to kick jund's lazy arse, but NOT ONCE did I ever come up against it. Now that I'm playing jund again, i can't stop hitting it. I made an OK side board to kind of shut it down, but i loose pretty consistently to jund still.

To get to the real candy of this little post, i desigend this little collage of myself, bloodbraid elf and friends.

Spoiler:

the original image from my camera is quite obscenely large, but if any of you want to grace your eyes with an beautiful 6x7 foot poster of me and my awesomeness, just post back and i'll hook you up.

reflections: i should have moved maelstrom pulse a bit to the left so you could see the little purple explosion better, but all in all a very wellcrafted photoshop. tell me what you think!

maybe i'll come out with version II or a cruel control build later.

It's actually pretty cool. I agree with your call to move the Pulse image to the left. Also, I think next time, put the tape on on your cards the side away from the camera, you can totally see it in the image above. Other than that, pretty awesome.

Nice! On some of the art the transitions are a bit strange (actually just Garruk) but the transition on the Putrid Leach is exquisite!

I did something like that but for the power nine, but as it was going to be shrunk down to a small size for what I wanted to do with it, it's a pretty low quality.

Here it is:

thats pretty good. I really like making collages like that. I did one with me and all my favorite videogame characters.

On garruck, its supposed to look like he is jumping out from behind the card. from your perspective, his left leg is in front of the card, pushing off of it. his right leg is behind the card. kind of like how sprouting thrinax is crawling out from behind my neck and the cards.

i actually didn't really even try on the transition from bit blast to MPulse.

For taping the cards, i did it on the back side as well, but hey were still sometimes floppy and wouldn't hold as i tried to position myself infront of the auto-timed camera. the tape in the middle is kind of darker because i tried to adjust brightness and contrast over the tape square to cover it up. Fail.

after some more analysis, I will definently make JUNDLOLZ 2.0.

Also, I'm open to requests for just collages or sticking a photo of you (or anyone) in the middle of it all. I don't mean to brag, but I consider myself proficient in photoshop.

I know theres alot of these out on the internets, but here is a modest collection of my favorite last pictures I took.

I realized something while looking through cards from the Legends expansion a while back.

Axelrod Gunnarson sounds like a pornstar name. Especially once you target him with Blood Lust. Has anyone on MTGO been able to produce adult entertainment while playing Masters Edition III limited?
