    Well I won't be at any prerelease events but will for sure be at release events.I would like to go g/r/w for the quick efficent beatdown. But one thing I've learned is that forcing a color or colors in limited is like announcing your plans to GOD it's the surest way to be laughed at.
  2. Arix The Town Dragon

    Agreed. Though it's all well and good to go "I'm going to play G/R/W", you can never set anything in stone until you've opened your cards. That's why I like limited so much more than constructed - the insane element of surprise. Of course, I prefer casual more than both.

    Umm if it's about support your local store then good on ya, but that price sucks monkey nuts.You can go to starcity and get box for $75 plus ship, might even get lower on ebay.But the thing is unless you want to home or group draft, boxes are the suckers deal.It's fairly easy to get x4common and x4 uncommon of any given new set off ebay for $50-$70 including ship. So after that your deal would get me what 36 random mostly crap rares for $100.Kinda poor deal instead of just searching ebay for x4 or whatever of each rare I really want.

    But it's the second ability that's interesting.

    Pretty cool so far. Don't love it as much as Ravnica, but still solid.

    Question, are these 3 guilds getting the shaft a bit? There seem to be a fair amount of non-guild cards in here, which leaves less space for the three guilds. Compared to Ravnica, which has 1 more guild but near 100% the size increase, it seems like it has a higher percentage of non-guild cards.

    Anyway, cards I look forward to getting my hands on:
    White, Black and Red Leylines
    Gigadrowse
    Quicken
    Angel of Despair
    Electrolyze
    Gelectrode
    Glint-Eye Nephalim
    Izzet Chronarch
    Killer Instinct (Fixed Sneak Attack)
    Niv-Misset
    Scab-Clan Mauler (in an aggro deck, this should often be a 3/3 trampler for GR)
    Stitch in Time (glad I still have my Krark's Thumb deck together)
    Ulasht, the Hate Seed
    Wee Dragonauts (will play strictly b/c of the card name)
    Debtor's Knell
    Giant Solifuge
    Gruul War Plow (splashable Primal Fear)
    Skarrg, the Rage Pits

    OK, on second look maybe I do like this set more than I first thought.

    Looking forward to:
    R/G/W Aggro
    R/W/U Sunforger
    U/B/x unblockable beats

  9. Limited Yes, but we won't care

    I love this card! A very simple ability, but can become very annoying..

    3/3 is kinda weird though, for gR.. 4/3 would have more sense to me, but that might have been way to broken.
  10. Mikeymike Captain Hiatus

    Yeesh, a 3/4 for 3 mana with a symmetrical drawback that is easy to make one-sided.

    And it doesn't hurt your Birds/Elves so he's an easily plannable turn 2 cast.

    Chase-rare.

    I like him! With some kind of sacrifice outlet, you could play him (trigger on the stack), sack him and let him haunt an opponents X/1. Trigger resolves, all opponents creatures get -1/-1, X/1 dies, all opponents creatures get -2/-2.

    Excellent!
  13. Mikeymike Captain Hiatus

    I love his secondary ability (all opponent's creatures get -1/-1), but haunt means you can't abuse it with Black graveyard recursion.

    In the long run I feel that will be Haunt's downfall.

    The Ghost Council is just insane! The MTGSalvation spoiler hadn't list his p/t, but I guessed it would be 2/2 or something.. 4/4 is more than I hoped for.

    And it combo's quite nicely with Tesha..
