Kaladesh PreRelease Tips

Happy Friday MTG peeps,

Tonight at midnight many gaming stores will stay open very late (or very early) for Magic: the Gathering players participating in this weekend's Kaladesh prerelease.  If you, like use are not fond of imitating a gaming zombie and stumbling home at four or five in the morning, then you'll likely be going when the sun is up.  Our local store, OMG! Games, here in Barrie, Ontario will be running a total of five events over the course of the weekend.

If you are new to the game and having second thoughts, we suggest you read this thread on Reddit.  In it, reddit user ITOverlord prepared a handy Kaladesh PreRelease guide and as importantly, the comments are filled with variety of good questions and great supportive answers from the pretty awesome MTG community on Reddit.  For a Kaladesh primer with a bit more than the basic foundations, pop on over to Channel Fireball and read Paulo Vitor Damo da Rosa's article linked here.

For those who already know the game, WotC staffer Diego Fumagalli has a 'How to Kaladesh - In Graphics' post to the mothersite.  Here, Diego has a number of clever strategic plays which may not be all that obvious to some.  

We do not, by any stretch of one's imagination think ourselves good Magic: the Gathering players, especially in a limited environment such as Kaladesh sealed PreRelease.  We do however know enough to always include any copies of Filigree Familiar in a pool we get.  Anywhoos, we will instead direct our recommendations to Luis Scott-Vargas, whom we trust implicitly to float out the very best choices for limited.  You can see his top picks for Kaladesh limited over here on Channel Fireball
