Card Catch-Up 4-22

A Happy Thursday to all.

We thought we would pull a Crazy Ivan - stop, clear the baffles here at MTG Realm and take stock of what we have missed. To this end, we're dropping a hodgepodge of Magic the Gathering miscellany on your monitors. Grab your goggles and let's go.

First Up -

For those air travelers and Planeswalkers inconvenienced by the recent eruption and subsequent spew of tons of volcanic ash from Iceland, your suffering and pain has a name - Eyjafjallajökull. And it so happens, that this card is for you . .

And here is a card errata:
"Should you correctly pronounce the name, you may play this card without paying its mana cost".

Next -

As you may know from our previous post (HERE), the Rise of the Eldrazi Release foil promo (release is this weekend!) is Lord of Shatterskull Pass. What you might not know is what the Game Day (scheduled May 22) are.

Here is the scoop from Wizards : All participants receive a Staggershock promo card while the top 8 players each receive an exclusive Deathless Angel full-art promo card. If your game sucked eggs that day, don't worry, there is still a chance of getting one of two Deathless Angel promo cards which are to be awarded as door prizes at your participating local gamery store.

And Next . . . some serious catching up with Friday Night Magic Promos -

FNM Promo - March, 2010

Ancient Ziggurat
Land, Conflux Uncommon
: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool. Spend this mana only to cast creature spells.

FNM Promo - March, 2010

Bloodbraid Elf, 2

Creature — Elf Berserker, Alara Reborn Uncommon
Haste, Cascade (When you cast this spell, exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a nonland card that costs less. You may cast it without paying its mana cost. Put the exiled cards on the bottom in a random order.)
3 / 2

FNM Promo - May, 2010

Land — Locus, Mirrodin Common
Cloudpost enters the battlefield tapped.
: Add 1 to your mana pool for each Locus on the battlefield.


And finally . . .

From waaaay back - actually in February at PTQ San Diego. A very special promo card was provided Wizards tournament organisers to members of that most awesome of television show, Robot Chicken, who had attended to sling cards.


OK folks, we think it's safe to go back in the pool now - be sure to drop by again real soon as we crack open some sealed Rise of the Eldrazi product.

I'm geared up for the release tonight! I wasn't able to make the pre-release, so this will be my first experience with RoTE. Anybody who played in the pre-release have any helpful hints or advice to offer?
