As usual, take this with a grain of salt. I’m not saying this is going to be something playable, but simply an idea someone with more time could possibly perfect.
I just came home from my second prerelease event; this time it was Battle for Zendikar and at the first time I was at Magic: Origins prerelease. I had fun though I am suffering from a never-ending flu. As I only have experience on these two sanctioned events I cannot help but to compare the two. I might add that I have nowhere near as much experience on Magic: the Gathering as Aki has and I take the whole game anyway pretty differently.
We are probably only in the early stages of allies. There will probably be more coming later, but this is what I would do at this point. Not many choices actually, but what can you do?
