Tumblr Time

Happy Friday MTG peeps,

Here in Barrie, Ontario (Canada-Land) we got walloped with over three feet of snow and it continues to snow which means we might not be able to get out to Friday Night Magic tonight (on the other end of the city).  Instead we plan to game with some new builds we are working with now that we have most the new Magic: the Gathering Gatecrash cards.

Anywhoos - before we get along to today's post, we want to yatter a bit about some Dagon's Maze (the next new set) rumours and news circulating around the web.  The first is official from the mothersite - the Dragon's Maze 'Buy-a-Box' promo is Render Silent.  We don't know what this rare may do but rest assured, it's a non-creature spell.  Next up - a rumour.  There is some unsubstantiated rumours that Dragon's Maze will have a mythic-rare land which provides an alternate-win condition.  Essentially similar to 'Thawing Glaciers', this will tap for a colourless mana, and allow you to pay three mana, tap and search your library for a Gate card and put it into play.  Having ten or more 'Gates' on your side of the gametable would win you the game. 

Another recent piece of news comes from the U.S. trade / copyright office where a "Journey into Nyx" Trademark application was submitted by Wizards of the Coast.  This could easily be a Dungeon's and Dragon's product or perhaps the name of the next block - so speculate away.  Some MTG fans postulate that this could be a block with a setting on the Plane of Arkhos as suggested on the Future Sight card 'River of Tears' and the Planechase card 'Lethe Lake'.

Righto - let's get on to today's re-posts from our sister site MTG Realm on Tumblr !

InQuest Gamer was a prominent monthly gaming magazine. Originally, the magazine was named InQuest and focused solely on trading card games; InQuest, along with its competitor Scrye, were the two major CCG magazines. The magazine was published by Wizard Press.  Inquest Gamer ceased publication as of September 2007.The InQuest magazine is famous for its extensive use of inserts. Most of them are pure advertisement material but once in a while, game accessories are added. In issue #13 (may, 1996) a Magic life counter was included featuring the image of Hurloon Minotaur, at this time an iconic creature of Magic. Life is tracked by spinning a wheel printed with numbers ranging from 1 to 60, divided on both sides. This design proved to be useful, and many future life counters made use of it.
