Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,
This is a second post today where we wanted to yatter about creature (types) in Magic the Gathering. First however, a warning about the unbelievable truck-load of Return to Ravnica fakes floating about on the forums and other social media sites - just beware. Wait until these are officially previewed on the mothersite or check here on MTG Realm where we will provide an estimated level of certainty and will only post once we've done some homework on it (we've been burned once before). Also of note - we are heading to the wifi-absent wilds of northern Ontario for another playdate with wolves 'n' bears (nope - not kidd'n) camping so expect our next post after this weekend.
Anywhoos - onto MTG creature types !
The mothersite has been providing a 'Mistform Ultimus Watch' (named after this legendary Time Spiral creature illusion). Rule 205.3m of the Comprehensive Rules had been updated to give a list of all creature types when Innistrad was released - can you guess which new creature was introduced?
Personally, our fav critter has to be Noggles - just because they are so very weird / unique. Check out our article from July, 2008 for a write up on these. While you are clicking around, check out CCG House where our friends there have provided a decent discount for new customers.
