|Only two more days of soul crushing work until your depressing lonely weekend?|
Today we're going to touch on something that I sort of did on accident, but I pretend was on purpose so that I look like less of a dumbdumb: the idea of giving your tower a unique theme or identity.
|My tower's theme is "Not Magic"|
For example, my tower sport the regular suite of "Silly cards that are really not that great," such as Jace, The Living Guildpact and Dakra Mystic.
|Incidentally, this is an amazing card for Wizard's Tower.|
|Basically a boardwipe.|
- From here on out, if I find a really cool enchantment that I want in a deck, such as Demonic Pact, I have a home for it.
- The deck plays a little more cohesively, and it feels more like you're playing with a giant deck rather than just a giant pile of cool cards (not that there's anything wrong with that)
- I get to clear out my Theros bulk bin.
- I feel cooler than people who have boring non-themed towers.
Obviously, enchantments aren't the only theme available in MTG. There are Goats, too. Or maybe you played a lot during the Mirrodin block, and you have an infinite number of cool artifacts. Make your tower mostly artifacts, and pretend you're playing modern Affinity. Like flipping things? Fill it chock full or Morph/Megamorph and have no one ever have any idea what any creature is until they die to it. Interested in chairs? Make a deck entirely based on chairs and people sitting in chairs. Magic is a sweet game with endless possibilities, and you can create whatever nonsensical deck you can dream up.

Send us a message or drop a comment below with a link to to neatest tower you can make. After a week or two of asking for schweet submissions, we're going to pick out our favorite and talk about it. And, honestly, probably copy it. But first we'll share it with the world, and tell everyone the genius who is behind the idea, and your name will live on in eternal glory. Or, you know, like 10 kids will make your tower and at the very least you can feel a bit smug.
Have other tower ideas? Think there's a theme that is vastly superior to anything else? Want to share your mono-blue Cephalid tower with us to potentially win the contest? Whatever the reason, drop us a comment or send us a message! Or, if you're a hip kid, tweet us with your twotter at the new Heavy Salami Twitter page!
