Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,
We have a bit of a treat for you today - courtesy of 360 Public Relations and Wizards of the Coast. The crew here at MTG Realm scored an Dark Ascension Intro Pack and four Dark Ascension Booster Packs. When we think of it, we had no less than four players tell us (2 here in town and 2 others in a city serveral hours away) that they had actually purchased Intro Packs / Event Decks after they saw some of our previous 'dissection' videos so I guess it serves the folks well over at WoTc to send swag every once in a while.
Anywhoos - we received the Red / White 'Swift Justice' Intro Pack BUT what really floats our boat is what we got in the four booster packs - enough yattering for now - here's the vid :
The Dark Ascension / - Swift Justice has the foil Requiem Angel and everyone's fav one-drop vampire, Stromkirk Noble. The rare we pulled from the booster pack included in this Intro Pack was Jar of Eyeballs which we will immediately send off to Magic Cards with Googly Eyes so she (twitter here) can slick up some kewl card alt for us.
This deck is fast and agressive and can be easily adapted for the novice Magic the Gathering player to evolve as that player's skill evolves. We suggest that perhaps one of your first steps is to consider getting a few copies of something similar to Ray of Revelation (green splash?) to kill off those nasty enchantments running amok in standard at the moment (we're looking at you Intanglible Virtue / Honor of the Pure).
Righto - We LOVED what we got in the four Dark Ascension Booster Packs and only wished we could have pulled this during the PreRelease event where we sucked a 2:2 with our matches. Check 'em out :
Gravecrawler, Geralf's Messenger, Beguiler of Wills (for some odd reason we keep mis-reading the card as 'Bruce Willis' ?wtf?), and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed.
Yep - wish we had pulled these at the prerelease.
Anywhoos - we still have some additional Intro Packs to cover off so stay tuned.
It is not too late to get in your pre-orders yet. Whether you are thinking about building a vampire, werewolf, zombie, spirit, agrro or control, you'll likely need to get some new cards - Give MTG Mint Card a look.
