Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
We are most definitely excited about getting our new Born of the Gods pre-orders from MTG Mint Card and getting down to brewing up some new standard format lists. We really don't expect standard to get very much of a shake-up but we do anticipate quite a few new rogue lists to show up at our local gaming store OMG! Games, here is Barrie, Ontario. Out of the gates we expect a lot of updates to existing popular builds such as mono-black and mono-blue devotion but perhaps with additional control options. Before things settle down we think we might see some lists for white / blue-white heroics featuring 'Glimpse of the Sun God' and perhaps even another attempt of G/x Hexproof featuring 'Hero of Iroas' to push forward.
Providing use with fuel to get the list off the ground will likely be Elvish Mystic, Burning-Tree Emissary and perhaps even Zhur-Taa Druid if there's room.
Where we really want to get to is perhaps swinging in with an 'tribute-unpaid' hasty Fanatic of Xenagos, targeted with a blood-rushed Ghor-Clan Rampager while Xenagos, God of Revels are out, giving us . . . we think -
That in our books ain't that bad and we most definitely enjoy living in Magical Christmasland.
Anywhoos - now we just have to cook this thing up and serve it hot 'n' fresh for the upcoming Friday Night Magic event when Born of the Gods will finally be legal to play.
