First thing you should always do when brewing decks is figuring out what you can do with the mana. Of course, only a select few actually do this, because it’s much more fun to start with those interesting cards or synergies. Still, this is the way you should do it. (Yeah, I don’t either.)
This is an actual deck, but it does lose certain parts of it, namely Thraben Inspector, Needle Spires and possibly some other cards, but the core of the deck should still be there. But how about if we go a little bigger and find ourselves a new set of drivers, because everyone loves a dinosaur piloting an airship? Right?
Ankylosaurus a bit costly creature, but intesting. We’ll see if that’s the actual name, but the text as translated on MythicSpoilers is as follows:
Creature – Dinosaur
Enrage – Whenever Ankylosaurus is dealt damage, put a +1/+1 counter on each other creature you control.
The interesting thing here is the combo with Walking Ballista.
Last night we gathered together to try out the new Magic the Gathering pre-constructed Commander decks. Four players, four decks and about four hours of fun! In this post I will be summarising our experiences on the playability of the pre-constructed decks and share our initial feeling about how it all went.
One of the problems in recent history was that there weren’t really good four mana green creatures. Why was that a problem? Because there were plenty of two costing mana elves. If you play those, you want to play a four drop to play on turn three. Sure, there is Bristling Hydra, which is still quite strong, but there’s some new ones in the new set. (Actually, Crocodile of the Crossing is quite underappreciated as well.)
Wow, a Jace I actually like. Now, don’t get me wrong. There’s been powerful Jace’s before, but this one I like for how it works and there’s a huge difference there.
I don’t think this is a good idea, but has that ever stopped me from brewing before? Obviously that was just a rhetoric question, but it shouldn’t anyone, because you never know where the really workable ideas lie.
I can work with this…
I don’t have that much experience with either set and I would rather do this later, when I’m more familiar with it, but on the other hand, my job won’t let me play very much after my summer vacation, so I might as well do his now.
