WPN Promo : ARB

It appears that soon-to-be-release Gateway promos were possibly released a titch to soon. One report indicates that the gateway promos were inadvertently directed to Alara Reborn Prereleases in Germany and mixed with the regular prerelease foils.

Slave of Nicol Bolas
, 3{U/R}B
Sorcery, Uncommon
Gain control of target creature. Untap that creature. It gains haste until end of turn. Sacrifice it at end of turn.

Marisi's Twinclaws, 2{W/R}G
Creature - Cat Warrior, Uncommon
Double strike

Unfortunately both cards are somewhat lackluster especially when compared with other previously released WPN promotional cards, both in the alternate art department and the actually cards themselves.

Anywhoos - If you have no clue what I'm yattering about, here are the details of the Wizards Play Network (WPN) / aka 'Gateway', formerly 'League' set up.

The Wizards Play Network offers stores, schools, libraries and organizers all the tools they need to run events for Wizards of the Coast games. If you want to offer Magic: The Gathering or Dungeons & Dragons events for your players, the WPN gives you everything you need to get your game going!


How you get your paws on a Promo ? ?

From the back of the DCI "participation kit sheet" . . .

"You may disseminate the magic promo cards to your players however you would like. The DCI recommends you use most of the promo cards to support magic league play to help maintain and grow your player base. Planeswalker achievements is another way for players to earn promo cards. Achievement instructions are on the back of this document. Another great way to use promo cards is to supplement your prize support for any magic tournament run at your location, like Friday night magic."


Marisi's Twinclaws, although not top shlef may be salvageable by adding additional ingredients into the stew . . .

Behemoth Sledge : This equipment provides a 4/6 Lifelink, Trample, Double-Striking nutter.

Colossal Might : This instant gives a 6/6 Trample double-hitter until turn's end.

Knight of New Alara : This creature provides a pump of 3 giving you a decent 5/7.
