Happy Thursday MTG peeps,
We are wishing you all the very best in the New Year with this, our last post of 2015. MTG Realm has had a rather busy year again delivering Magic: the Gathering news, previews, deck ideas, and reviews. Here is a quick summary of our efforts on the main Blog (www.MTG-Realm.com) -
• 2015 - 183 posts
• 2014 - 246 posts
• 2013 - 254 posts
• 2012 - 300 posts
• 2011 - 255 posts
• 2010 - 259 posts
• 2009 - 281 posts
• 2008 - 151 posts
You will notice that the number of posts were down slightly this year. This is due to MTG Realm developing a more robust presence on the Tumblr micro-blogging platform which has a wonderful and mature MTG fan community. We estimate we've put approximately 500 posts up over 2015 which you can visit on the MTG Realm Tumblr archive over here www.mtg-realm.tumblr.com/archive.
Anywhoos, on to the last post of the year - Oath of the Gatewatch previews for 31st December -
Hissing Quagmire - Our first OGW man-land, ETB tapped and producing Black or Green mana with an activation of 1BG to animate a 2/2 Elemental creature with deathtouch - not too shabby.
Deceiver of Form - a 6<> Eldrazi with a 8/8 body with an interesting scry ability to allow your team to become a copy of a creature card revealed.
General Tazri - a legendary human ally for 4W and a 3/4 body with a ETB effect to tutor out an ally to put in your hand. An activation cost of WUBRG pumps Allies based on the number of colours among your allies - damn sweet Commander material here.
Oath of Jace - a legendary enchantment for 2U with an ETB effect of draw 3 and discard 2 as well as neat beginning of turn effect to scry based on the number of walkers you have.
Vile Redeemer (translation ?) - a 3/3 devoid Eldrazi for 3G with flash. An activation of a <> gives you a Scion.
Skinning Tendrils - a 1BB devoid sorcery nerfs weenies with a -2/-2 to all critters until turn's end.
Embodiment of Fury - a 4/3 elemental for 3R with trample and giving man-lands trample as well. Landfall tech animates a target land as a 3/3 haste elemental.
Prophet of Distortion - a 1/2 Eldrazi devoid drone for U and an activation of 3<> to draw a card.~
