First off a small explanation when to look for what concerning this blog:
Monday's are general voting days. I will do a shortish write up with each general (You would like X if... etc.) and then leave it to the rest of you to decide who we work on.
Wednesday is card choice day, easy enough, and that will go on till saturday morning.
Saturday afternoon I will present the finished list and will take suggestions for the next weeks generals.
On to the blog!
When coming up with this idea (along with the others) I brainstormed what we could do for the first week. This one was easy, there were 5 new generals coming out in M13! And then Obsidian2fireheartrr posted his EDH deckbuilding blog for the week. And lo and behold M13 legends. To not step on toes or oversaturate these weeks with these new guys(gals) I decided that it would be best NOT to use them this week. Which meant having to think about wat I was going to do.
Flashforward to Friday night, reading the comicon panel for MTG it hit me. Why not the leaders of the guilds from the time of R:CoG in preperation for RTR? Seemed good. The guilds are split up as such : http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/arcana/1016 .
