That time again… Strange list this time around. There’s a couple of cards I haven’t even played, but I still like very much.
Today’s the release and as currently unemployed, I’ve had the time to think about what to play. The ideas are pretty endless, but the problem is that I won’t have access to everything today, so I’ve used what I have been able to trade for (and I’ll actually get some of the cards I’ve bought later today, because it pays to be close to a professional seller).
So, after a lot of consideration, I decided to have a test run with [card]Goblin Dark-Dwellers[/card].
Not enough one-drops for either of these, but what can you do? They can’t really make more [card]Monastery Swiftspear[/card]s.
For whatever reason, I find the title funny, because it only makes sense to MtG players.
Anyway, the other day I made a couple of two-colored lists around the devoid mechanic. Later I realized I completely forgot about this card:
… which kind of makes things easier.
I’ve seen some attempts at this already without OGW and they seem fine, but somewhat lacking. But OGW brings plenty of new tools, some of which might fly under the radar, because they aren’t splashy mythics.
Just before Christmas, when I was looking for something different to play, I tried out this list in a tournament: U/G Megamorph. I went 2-2. Not very good, but the games I lost were still quite competitive and I think with some practice I may have done better with the deck.
But, here’s a great addition:
Of course, the cards that really have an impact don’t always need to be the mythics.
This seems pretty good.
When [card]Hero’s Blade[/card] was spoiled earlier this year, there was some talk of using it in constructed. Mostly Modern, because of the depth of cheap legends, but somewhat in Standard. The thing is, we did get some great legends this summer…
Jori En is this guy:
It seems to have a fairly high presale price, so I guess people think its pretty good. So, I’ll brew a bit.
First: This is speculation. Not many cards are out, so I can’t really say how many sources for colorless mana you’ll have, but I’m basing this on the idea that we only have the [card]Wastes[/card] as a source.
