D13 PreCons

Happy Friday MTG peeps,

As it is Friday, we suggest you get out to a Friday Night Magic event.  Don't know where your local FNM is (new to town or short memory?) - then try the new improved Store & Event Locator which is considerably more slick than the previous version.  We'll hope to drop by our local store, OMG! Games here in Barrie, Ontario to sling cards and have some epic games.

Anywhoo  - YouTube User and Top Tier Tactics writer 'WINGSPANTT' had uploaded some interesting vids recently courtesy of colleague Rabid Ferret, also a staffer at Top Tier Tactics.  What was posted was a video walk-through of a press release copy of Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 (digital game) at the recent Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) which wrapped up this week in Los Angeles.

The two videos posted were the base contents of a Ajani's Celestial Light lifegain pre-consturcted deck and a red Born of Flame deck.  What is of interest to us here at MTG Realm are a sprinkling of new cards not yet seen print which is a solid indication of getting inclusion in the upcoming Magic 2013 core set due out 13th July, 2013.  Remember - seeing a card in Duels (D13) does not guarantee a paper print in M13.

Let's have a look . . . (be warned that there is some potty-mouth)

Mr Wingspan talks absolute shit about the decks.
After he's taken Ajani's Mantra out of the deck, I'll happily put it back in, win games with it and Ajani's Pridemate, and laugh in his face. He's so dismissive of some cards it's unbelievable. And then he goes on to praise Celestial Mantle. Oh boy. I think he genuinely believes it gives flying. (Hint- it doesn't)
I've seen that card perform, but only on creatures with either hexproof or evasion. It's amazing on Invisible Stalker. In this deck, I believe it will be weak.
