Happy Monday MTG peeps,
That was quite a weekend! We're not really talking about the Seattle Seahawks 43 - 8 Superbowl win over the Denver Broncos but rather the Born of the Gods PreRelease. Starting at Friday midnight, our local gaming store, OMG! Games, here in Barrie, ran events all weekend long. We were able to get out to the 3:00 pm event on Saturday to take part in the tournament, and grab some pics including this video where we yattered with Jon from the Command Tower blog and Rick from OMG! Games.
There are five different colored BNG PreRelease packs containing among other thingys, 3 Theros booster packs, 2 Born of the Gods booster pack and a special seeded booster pack of which there are 8 different variations for each color chosen.
Nessian Wilds Ravager (prerelease promo) Hero of Lena Tower, Culling Mark, Siren of the Fanged Coast, Unravel the Aether, Ashiok's Adept, Mortal's Resolve, Mortal's Ardor, Kragma Butcher, Setessan Oathsworn, Nyxborn Triton, Aspect of Hydra, Akroan Skyguard, Nyxborn Wolf, Fall of the Hammer, Necrobite
Pulls - Rares
Scourge of Skola Vale (BNG)
Hunter's Prowess (BNG)
Pyxis of Pandemonium (THS)
Steam Augury (THS)
Temple of Slience (THS)
OMG! Games was packed with players excited to game with the new cards and some in the crowd had already participated in the Friday midnight and the Saturday morning prerelease events prior to this afternoon event. Although our pulls were not stellar and sealed is not our strong suit, we did rather enjoy ourselves. We are most definitely looking forward to getting our pre-orders from MTG Mint Card and getting down to building / modifying decklists for standard, modern, and commander.
Stay tuned for more Magic: the Gathering news 'n' articles here at MTG Realm as we absorb all the new awesomeness in this set.
