But what's that you say? You say that you completely forgot about the contest and now you're kicking yourself for possibly missing out on the chance to have your very own Foil Silent Specter? Well, don't worry because there is still time. I'm going to begin reviewing all of the entries at the beginning of next week and hopefully start posting the best articles starting Monday, April 10th. Until then, you still have time to sneak an entry under my door. (What can I say? I like my guidelines like I like my women: Loose.)
So open up Gatherer, pull out your card boxes or do whatever it is you have to do to get that entry in. And soon, you may be able to claim youself as the inventor of the greatest Magic combo in the world!
