Innistrad ComicCon Panel

~
Happy Saturday MTG peeps,

Last night's Super FNM at OMG! Games was a complete success. The place was jam-packed not only with players vying for the coveted first-prize Time Walk but also with the camera crew and show staff for a filming of the upcoming Risky Business reality show.

Anywhoos, we ran that Tempered Steel deck that
Ishida had won the Japanese Nationals with but could not get there with the curiosities of the local meta-game. Speaking of curious, in our last round, our opponent side-boarded in some very strategic Creeping Corrosion which blew my full board out of the water. What was curious was that he had kept these cards under the table and un-sleeved . . . hmm(?).

Righto - back on track -
Reports are in from the much anticipated Magic Panel from this weekend's Comic Con in San Diego. Let's get to the eye-candy first ->

Announced -
The second set of the Innistrad block will be named Dark Ascension which has the tag-line - "Command the Night" (Images courtesy of Brian David Marshall (@Top8Games).

This image certainly looks like a Sorin Planeswalker to me chillaxing in Castlevania with a feeling similar to that of Ral Zarek's art.

Next - a very, very lucky Magic the Gathering fan won an orignal (!) piece of artwork reported to be a card from Innistrad named 'Creepy Doll'. We are thinking this may be a kick-butt artifact creature.
