Confession time: I think Theros block is super cool, but I feel the majority of its coolness comes from its flavor implementation, rather than from its mechanics. Still, it does have a mechanic called MONSTROSITY so it would be criminal not to build a deck around it.
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.
Magic: the Gathering’s Theros Party was last night at PAX Prime and the spoilers have been sent out. We’ve decided to collect them all here for you after the jump. Take a look.
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.
While San Diego Comic Con has been a blast while happening the last few days, it wasn’t the only event of the weekend. PAX Australia also happened this weekend, and Wizards of the Coast had a Magic: the Gathering panel down under. We have a number of spoilers for upcoming releases that weren’t discussed yesterday after the jump.
Some of the earlier news from the Magic: the Gathering panel has made itself available. Not everything is out yet, but there is plenty to share right now. So, take the jump to see some Theros spoilers, another card from From the Vault: 20, and information about the two fall products, Duel Decks and Commander.
