Apparently there is finally a monoblue legendary sphinx that’s worth playing (sorry, Alhammarret, High Arbiter, but you really aren’t worth playing in EDH).
Let’s do something with it.
Zombie Jackal Cleric? Okay…
Last week I happened to visit Kangasala Public Library and spotted an interesting poster – a local gaming event I hadn’t even heard of! Naturally I had to visit it and I’m really glad I did. Learn 2 Play Kangasala proved to be a great event with surprising amount of things going on.
The actual event took place during the weekend but I only had time to participate during Sunday. As it was local I decided to take my 7-year old son with me. Gentle guidance to great hobbies. You know the deal. Continue reading
There’s a couple of new rules to get into the Pro Tour Hall of Fame. First, you need to have at least two “sunday appearances” and secondly, you need at least 60% of the vote. So, who would not have gotten in with these rules?
As usual, I’m a bit late with this, but still, it’s worth it to discuss the two different banlists.
For those who haven’t stumbled on this yet, WotC accidentally spoiled three cards from Hour of Devastation on their own website. One of them is of course Nicol Bolas, another is Samut as a Planeswalker, and the third one is this…
So, let’s talk about it.
[EDIT] Well, immediately after I published this, I went to the best place for us Finns to think about stuff, namely my sauna, so I felt the need to add a few things to this article.
I was thinking about how to do this for quite a bit and I didn’t seem to find the right place to start. Maybe top-down? Come up with an idea of a world and then populate it by using existing cards? Some strange mechanical thing?
I guess I went for the latter.
I’ve been thinking about why I like certain colors so much more than others. I really like to play red, even though I don’t really like the low-curve, Sligh-style decks, there’s something about it that really works for me. Same for black. At the same time I dislike white quite a bit. So why is that?
If you don’t know, unlike previously CMC of split cards is now the sum of the two parts. This was done due to the abuses on older split cards with cards like As Foretold and the different Expertises (mostly Kari Zev’s Expertise). On the other hand, there are cards that like your cards being expensive.
There’s two split cards in Amonkhet that seem strong here.
Its easy to think of black as the evil guys. It doesn’t necessarily help that in western culture black is often the unlucky, evil color used by the bad guys and in the early days of the game had plenty of black cards with the word ‘evil’ in the title.
