Happy Monday MTG peeps,
Wow! What a great weekend we had at the Gatecrash PreRelease. Magic: the Gathering players around the world were able to play for the first time with all the very cool new cards and from what we heard from the gamers at OMG! Games here in Barrie, Ontario, the sealed format with this new set rocks.
This post is the second in our prerelease series and covers off the event we attended on Sunday. Check out our previous one for the midnight prerelease event with an Orzhov Guild Pack. We'll be sorting through all our new cards over the next few days and will start evaluating inclusions to our standard and our EDH / Commander builds. To round out your new collection, drop by MTG Mint Card and get new Gatecrash cards quickly and inexpensively.
Anywhoos - onto the post! Here's a short video -

We were happy with our pool and was able to construct a decent sealed deck with several creatures with evasion or unblockable to win 2 games, 1 loss and 1 draw to score us a few booster packs in prizes. Stay tuned latter as we provide some new insight to some of the cards we played or played against.
