I went 4-1 with my black-blue control deck. Apparently, my anti-[card]Dawnbringer Charioteer[/card] plan worked out perfectly, as I played against four white decks and I didn’t get hit by that guy once. The fifth match? Didn’t do so well.
Random, rather casual decks, although still standard legal.
Heroic might not be the way to go right now, but it probably will be soon enough, if there’s no cheap sweeper in the near future. After [card]Supreme Verdict[/card] is gone, these strategies might be the thing to do.
More brews. This time totally randomly red and black monocolored decks.
Spoilers have begun and the prereleases are less then two weeks away, so its time to begin the brewing. Starting with the gods, which seem to be very, very powerful. (Note: Pharika wasn’t spoiled when I first wrote this, but now that she has, I’m not sure I’d want to brew with her. Feels like a sideboard card to me.)
Its that time again. How to choose the color for the prerelease. The promos can be found here: http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/arcana/1468.
We’ve seen 30 or so cards thusfar, so its time to start brewing, but its also as important to look at how things will change for our deck. Not only what new cards we’ll have, but also what new cards will you have to face in the future. After all, decks are always about the context and if the metagame changes, your deck might take some splash damage. I know my deck will become worse if Pure Aggro strategies become more commonplace, as they seem to have done in the past few weeks.
