Rise of the Eldrazi Top Cards

Happy Tuesday folks,

You will have to excuse the title of today's post, 'Rise of the Eldrazi Top Cards' as it may be somewhat misleading - we will not attempt to provide a rating of the best cards in this new set for your game - well, just yet. We want to provide a bit of information the gaming community has generated in terms of buys and trades to see what cards have risen to the top. This should provide some insight as what one may expect in terms of your local meta-game or this set's anticipated impact on the standard environment.

You may read into these lists whatever you may but the standard game environment has still yet to absorb Rise of the Eldrazi. Having said that, we do have results from Star City Games for TWO Nationals Qualifiers held on 2010-04-25 in Koln, Germany and Angarsk, Russia.

It is interesting to note that Jund still favours quite strongly but have now been displaced in 1st place for 'Mythic' builds, one of which include the new Rise of the Eldrazi card, Eldrazi Conscription - - We're just glad to have gotten ours before crazy knee-jerk price adjustments take place.
