I’ve done two sealed deck tournaments with the new set, the first at a pre-release, the next on release day (booster draft at The Tangled Web.
Let’s just say I’m not too good at drafting!
I haven’t got any of the much wanted cards in a pack yet. These are the new Chandra, new Garruk, the new Angel, and the new Hydras. In fact, the rares I have got are throwbacks, with the exception of Strionic Resonator.
The core set is cool though. I like the new Sliver cards. And I have the promo Megantic Sliver. The best sliver, in my opinion is the Predatory Sliver. Basically a baby Megantic Sliver.
Uhh… What’s a Sliver???
Slivers stick together. They share abilities. The idea is that they are a hive mind, like the Borg on Star Trek. The Wizards decided to put these in place of some other friends that we have come to love. (Krenko, Odric, Yeva, Talrand, and Nefarox, the Knights, etc).
I don’t dislike the slivers, though. And I could see myself making a deck out of them.
Also, the Duels of the Planeswalkers game incorporates M14. That’s cool. It gave me a little edge.
Already I don’t like it as good as M13. Who am I kidding. Maybe it’ll grow on me. What I really can’t wait for is THEROS!
I think I’m going to go crazy with the Theros block. Ravnica has been fun. Theros. A Greek Mythology based set. Ima be crazy! Do you know that I, the SpartanNerd, have two PERFECT GOD OW WAR GAMES. I loved GOW and GOW II. Being a cheapskate, I never got a PS3, much less whatever has come out since then. AND I have watched 300 fifty-eleven times. It is no coincidence that I am the SPARTANNERD. I put the Spartan in SpartanNerd……
But I digress…..
I already plan on getting that Hydra deck that they are going to be releasing (announced at San Diego Comic Con.) That just sounds like fun!
And I went crazy for the GATECRASH. I have a fat pack box full of that set alone. Alphabetized, of course, cause that’s how I roll. I’ll probably have a full three boxes of THEROS block cards. Look for me to be a champion!
