What is this?

End of turn, draw a card is a blog about old school Magic: the Gathering. Mostly about the Swedish rules set, but some Atlantic and EC and assorted sub-formats thrown in.  Primarily, it’s an outlet for me to rave and ramble about magic and assorted subjects. Don’t trust what I say too much.

Why the title?

Because there are few things in life better than drawing cards. Especially at the end of the opponent’s turn. (Drawing all the cards on turn 1 is preferable, but less of a productive strategy in 93/94. And since that is the main focus of this blag for the time being, end of turn it is.)
