Hi. I'm back.
It's been a while since I posted anything, frankly because I've just not had the inspiration, and because I've been working on something that is larger, and upcoming. For now, I have two posts for you.
One of them is Simply Vampires. It will come, soon.
The other is this one.
It's about "Blacklance Paragon," which, according to me, is the perfect Magic: the Gathering card.

Okay. I hear you think: Really? I come here, hoping for some enjoyably purple esoteric je ne sais quoi, and now he's gonna talk about Magic the fucking Gathering.

What I've just demonstrated is the bottom line of this post. Everything the Blacklance Paragon does in the game is represented perfectly in the art it actually has. The flavour hits exactly the same spot as the dry, mechanical function of the card.
So, what's the strength of Blacklance Paragon?
