I was posting a lot of MTG stuff in my personal blog, so I created a separate blog for MTG.


Backround: My first MTG cards were Odyssey cards back in the early 2000s, and I've been playing off and on since then. I'm mostly a casual player, but I hope to play competitively in the future. Feel free to ask me stuff or leave me comments. I'm usually on here every day.

Here are a few of our favorites of the new cards in Journey, the full spoiler is on Wizards.

If I were still playing UB, I’d be all over Hubris.

My other favorite swamp. Getting all foils for my 8rack deck, apparently it’s a popular one so a bit scarce!

That is actually just my favorite swamp next to the full art Zendikar ones

Agreed.

What set is this in?

Shards of Alara, card number 238. Art by Chippy.

GW Hate Bears for Standard

I think I’m going to try this deck out. I’m bored with my control deck, and there are a decent number of solid bears in Standard right now. A friend suggested the idea and I’m really feeling it.

Consider the following:

Voice of Resurgence

Spirit of the Labyrinth

Imposing Sovereign

Aegis of the Gods

Fleecemane Lion

I think I can make something work with these. They’re all white, so Brave the Elements works on all of them. My friend wanted to go RW for Boros Charm, but also consider the following: Immortal Servitude.

Since you’re all bears, you can Servitude for 5 (2WWW) and get back most of your board. Also consider that if Voice is among them, you probably have a Voice token, and it’s probably now huge because your board exploded. Brave the Elements can protect against Mizzium Mortars and Anger of the Gods, and Servitude can help you recover after Supreme Verdict and Drown in Sorrow. Late game you can Brave again to swing through or Launch the Fleet to double your board presence. Throw in a Spear of Heliod for good measure.

I’m an aggro player at heart, and I’m willing to give this deck a try. If anyone else is playing it, let me know how it’s working for you!

I think I just found a much needed Sideboard card for my standard build!


I want to see this scene animated. Maybe by the Funimation team that did FMA: Brotherhood. That would be sick.

Isn’t dack fayden Izzet colors in storyline though? It says so in Duels of the planeswalkers 2014 I think.

If we’re talking about DotP, then I’m not so sure. Could…

I don’t know anything about Dack’s personality, but it was my impression that he is a thief by profession, and thievery is pretty UB.

No, he doesn’t steal for UB reasons, he steals because it’s fun. Thievery can be both Red and Blue, if you remember looting.

Plus, like, red steals stuff all the time. Usually creatures, and it’s always temporary, but it can be argued to steal spells, and I’m fairly sure there’s a Master-Thief-like card in red.

Fair points! Also the additions to the teaser strongly suggest UR to me at this point.

So, I am pretty Green aligned. These three Gods are my favorites, purely from a Vorthosian perspective. I really really really dislike how the playmats from BNG and JOU look. There’s too much smudge going on, too much waste. The THS playmats look clean with the full art going on. I wanted the Kruphix playmat to look good, but I simply can not buy this.

Any thoughts on playmats?

I’d looooooove a Nylea playmat so much.

Agreed. Nylea is one of my favorite playmats. I also strongly dislike the new borders on them.

Spoilers for April 14, 2014! Stay up to date here, and don’t forget to join in our huge giveaway that I’ll be reblogging shortly. Also, only 48 hours left in the giveaway and only 48 hours left to save 15% of MTG beanies with coupon code “magic”.

Thanks for tuning in, and I’ll be sure to compile everything in this post as quickly as possible.

Use your one spell wisely my friends.

I might try out Eidolon in my Modern sideboard against Storm. I think between Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, and Tidehollow Sculler I should have enough disruption to make it to turn 3. I was also considering Spirit of the Labyrinth.
