This article provides a deck list for the 2012 Red Saturday joust winner.

A few random thoughts on Targ

May 24 2011 05:00 AM | Twn2dn in Strategy

Apologies in advance, this isn't as well-written as my past articles. If I have time at some point in the next couple of weeks, I may come back and clean this up quite a bit. I just thought I'd post what I had now, in case others found it usefu...

Greyjoy Knights of the Hollow Hill

Apr 21 2011 05:00 AM | WolfgangSenff in Strategy

Recently, I built a deck for the Chosen Few contest held by Fantasy Flight Games . I don't think my deck did that great in the proxy tournament, but there were a lot of possibilities with it. In any case, over the course of building that deck, I b...
