Alter 25 - Momir Vig, Simic Visionary

My buddy Chuck uses this bastard as his Commander. We call the deck "Vigo Momirson". I wanted to do this alter for him for a while, but was pretty intimidated by how complex this card is, so I kept putting it off. Last night however, I confronted Vigo.

Guy is a serious jerk. The colors, details and all that were ridiculous on this, and he almost won me over. I ended up being happy with the result, but it took forever and there were times I just wanted to shove his creepy bald head into that vat and see how long it took.

In the end, it cost me a friendship to do this alter, as I have vowed to never speak to Chuck again after putting me through this.

You win this round Vigo!

Alter 24 - Birthing Pod

Right when I saw Birthing Pod I knew it was a cool card. I didn't know if I would be casitng in Standard (I have already), but I knew it was cool. I might throw this in an EDH deck? Not really sure what to do with it, but I just knew I wanted to do an extension on it.

Alter 23 - Mental Misstep

A legacy staple, and maybe even Standard playable at some point. This card will be around for a while, and I think I might even just do 4 of these. I have 2 Japanese ones as well... hmm. :)
