Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,
As promised, we have for you the video from the Magic 2012 core set prerelease just this past weekend, but first a few small notes . . .
We are very happy to welcome back Cardhoarder as our sponsor and to the top banner spot. Cardhoarder's MTGO Store has all your MTGO needs including singles, sets, boosters, tickets, foils and more. They have a gigantic selection with very competitive prices.
Next up - some news from the trenches.
Several brick 'n' mortar stores have already been working hard towards welcoming the next set, Innistrad. To ensure suffucient product, they have pre-ordered ahead. During the ordering process through the Wizards Event Reporter Software (WER), it was learned that the Innistrad Buy-a-Box Promo is named "Devil's Play". Speculate away on this folks - think colour, type of spell, and possible card text, then put your prognostication in the comment thingy below.
Finally, the video.
We attended OMG! Games M12 PreRelease here in Barrie on Sunday - we like Sundays as there tends to be a little more elbow room at the tables. Anywhoos, we're kinda glad we did, store owners Rick and Josh indicate record-breaking attendance tournouts with about 48 at the Friday midnight pre-release and around 65 during the next two flights on Saturday. Sunday's event was limited to about twenty or so due to lack of product.
We went 3-1 with a black / white build and took home a store voucher for six packs of M12 prizes as the store shelves we almost bare. Righto - enough yattering, onto the vid . . .
First things - here are the rares puled -
Personal Sanctuary, Djinn of Wishes, Time Reversal, Cemetery Reaper (this card won games), Archon of Justice, and a Sun Titan.
But altough its great to have expensive chase rares, that will not always (or even usually) win games in a sealed format event. Cards which pushed hard to win games in this pool were removal spells such as Oblivion Ring and Doom Blade as well as evasion creatures for which I had a few nice white flyers.
Anywhoos - tell us your pre-release stories - did your pool suck rotten eggs or take you to glorious victory? Also tell us of some interesting plays you may have seen.
