The Great Myr Debate Settled by Mark Rosewater
prsntypething: I really need an answer to this, my group and I have been debating this since the first mirodin block came out so please tell us once and for all... Is myr pronounced "mer" like merfolk or "meer" like meerkat?

Although I can certainly see how a lot of names in Magic could be imagined one way by R&D and pronounced another by the masses. Like Garruk - Gah-rook or Gar-uck?

I won’t say “finished” because Commander decks rarely are...
"How Many Decks" Answers
Recently I asked how many Commander decks people had. I got 8 responses, and along with my own numbers and my friend’s at CastFromExile, that’s 10. Not exactly a decent sample size, but it’ll have to do. I’d like to look at the numbers: Me: 3 (just finished Glissa and played it for the first time Thursday!), though 4 if I won the lottery because I could justify another....
How Many Commander Decks Do You Have?
I’d love to get a consensus on this. I’ve heard anywhere from “None, I just borrow from my friends” to someone who has over 20. For me, I have 2 finished and 1 in the works, which should be finalized sometime in December. So I have 3 Commander decks. How many do you have?
