November 2014 FNM Card - Brain Maggot with Picture

No doubt about it, Brain Maggot is a great card and an FNM promo version of the card is pretty sweet. The art is eerily good. It gives me goosebumps but it is a masterpiece and I love it! I might need to go to FNMs every week for November for this promo.

October 2014 FNM Card - Fanatic of Xenagos with Picture

The FNM Promo for October is a party goer and a devotee to the Revel God Xenagos. Compared to last month's FNM promo, Fanatic of Xenagos didn't really have much appearance in the competitive Standard picture, even though it has one of the best or better Tribute effects in my opinion. If you think Red-Green Aggro will be a thing for the future, aim for this FNM promo for October besides, the art is cool.

September 2014 FNM Card - Banishing Light with Picture

The FNM Promo in September is a Standard staple after the rotation. A good promo at the right time. Banishing Light is the functional reprint of the good old Oblivion Ring and it surely gets the job done.

July 2014 FNM Card - Magma Spray with Picture

Friday Night Magic in July will be red hot with a foil Magma Spray as the FNM Promo Card. Wow, this  is the first promo card to feature the new M15 border and it definitely looks great in this promo along with a very nice artwork with Koth in it.

A closer look at the superb artwork on this promo card.

This is the recent version of Magma Spray in Journey into Nyx.

Magic101: Maximizing Budget

When it comes to almost everything in life - may it be doing the things we want, travelling, hobbies, eating outside or even buying groceries - everything falls under a budget. This becomes the upper bound, a limit. Without this limit, we can go bankrupt and not save anything for our future. This is not about lessons in life and economics, this is about enjoying things even on a budget. Hobbies are just one aspect in life and putting everything you've got in your hobby is, for me, pretty much plain stupid and unreasonable. Savings and investment is still the way to live life to assure ourselves of a future (+1 Win in Life's game). I will talk about Magic: the Gathering but I think the concept is applicable to other things in life.
