Alter 42 - The Mimeoplasm

Altering Commander generals has become quite a thing. I have done quite a few now, and when my favorite Renton based employee wanted this one, who am I to say no? :)

BUG and RUG are 2 of my favorite color combos, but I don't currently have a BUG deck so making this for a friend seemed necessary.

This guy has a freakin' T-rex for an arm. Nothing else needs to be said here right? :)

Alter 41 - Spider Spawning

Spider Spawning is a card with a lot of history behind it. This innocuous uncommon started as a later pick, sometimes weird splash but became the cornerstone for one of the coolest and strongest decks in Innistrad draft.

The deck spawned out of nowhere it seemed. We had Brian David-Marshall (@top8games) on Limited Resources where he talked about the archetype in detail, and that same week LSV had an article about it along with other outlets covered it too. Next thing you know you couldn't find any of the pieces in an 8-4 on modo.

As a tribute to the first place I heard about this deck, I did this alter and gave it to the guy that told me about it ;)

(reason picture is crappy is because I forgot to take one before delivering the goods, this will have to do)
