Last Friday, Nov 1st for those not wanting to think, Wizards of the Coast released their latest supplemental product for Magic: the Gathering, Commander (2013 Edition). While I’d love to do a review on this for you, I can’t as my local store sold out before I had a chance to get any. I can however give you Wizards’ take on the product and a brief rundown of some of the cooler things I saw due to the new cards when I played in a Release-like event over the weekend. Check it out after the jump.
Theros is in full swing, but a lot of the fun of Magic: The Gathering, is mixing cards from different sets. This deck takes a card from Theros, a card from Gatecrash and a card from Avacyn Restored and combines them for some truly explosive wins. Here’s the deck:
It’s autumn, and for most that means new seasons. What those seasons are can depend; sometimes it’s the actual changing of the weather. For many of us it’s a time for new aspects of pop culture to come around, such as new or returning television series. Well for me, the best new aspect of the season is the fall set for Magic: the Gathering, because it sets off a brand new plane and all new mechanics to go along with it. This year Wizards of the Coast has sent us to the plane of Theros, a Greco-Roman mythology based setting (finally) and the first set in the Theros block came out last Friday. So I’ve got a Major Spoilers review to share with you after the jump.
You Made the Card 4 is finished, and Wizards of the Coast has shown off a mock-up of the final look.
So, that’s actually pretty good there. Especially if Theros is still in rotation when this comes out it may see play. You can see a more detailed history of how the card came to be here. But we now want to know what you all think of the card, use the comments section below to tell us.
As we said Friday, the final two have been selected and the vote for the name we will give our Magic: the Gathering card for You Make the Card 4 has been put up today. The final two choices are. . . all eight options. Yet another issue with the software has been noted and instead of stretching this round further, we just get to choose from all eight in one vote. Here’s the eight.
Spoils of Misery
Riches From Rags
I noted my preference last week, and voted on it today. Go vote yourself and let us know what you feel is best. The poll closes tonight, so make sure to get your vote in, and don’t forget to take the code “MADETHECARD” over to PlaneswalkerPoints.com for a special achievement.
The first of the Theros spoilers for Magic: the Gathering at PAX Prime have officially hit. The official party isn’t until this evening, and I will try to bring you everything as soon as its available, with some additional commentary of course, but for now just have a look at Reverant Hunter and Gift of Immortality and let them speak for themselves, after the jump of course.
