Yeah. I just wonder what the secret is. It's not in the
cards, I can tell you that. It's in the approach. That's my
problem. Hand me a good deck, and I can win reliably. I make
play mistakes in perhaps one game out of ten. I don't get
flustered, confused, I can't be misdirected or slight-of-minded.
Make me build my own deck, though, and I'll lose game after
game. I've been playing for years, have never played anybody
else's deck in anything other than friendly one-off games, have
built deck after deck, tuned them for months, studied the cards,
discussed, read articles and posts. And I still suck horribly at
building decks, despite all of this deck-building experience. My
best guess at this point is that I'm approaching the concept
from a fundamentally flawed viewpoint, despite the merits of my
own deckbuilding logic. Sigh. We need a workshop, or at least a
solid thread, about this. Tao of the Headpunch is brought to
I like to smile.
