Friday MTG Miscellany

~
Happy Friday MTG peeps,

Although it may have been a slower week here on the MTG Realm blog, we still had a flurry of Magic: the Gathering related posts to our sister site, MTG Realm on Tumblr, so today's post will be a regurgitation of select content over there.  

If you are off work tonight or do not have to cram for an exam, take a breather and head on out to a Friday Night Magic event tonight.  We'll be off to our favourite local gaming store, OMG Games, here in Barrie, Ontario where we hope to exploit the current standard constructed metagame (and not play one of the two ubiquitous popular decklists).

Anywhoos, let's get caught up with some posts -

Magic: the Gathering - Magic Mural 2


Another amazing gaming store wall mural to follow up our previous post.  Here, we see a beautiful piece inspired by the iconic art of Jace, the Mind Sculptor from the Worldwake set, illustrated by Jason Chan.  Posted by  Luciana ‘Lu’ Couto of City Class Games in Osasco, São Paulo, Brazil.

DD Mind vs Might Decklists

~
Happy Monday MTG peeps,

We should bring to your attention that the full Duel Decks: Mind vs Might decklists were released today over on the Wizards of the Coast website.  Magic: the Gathering fans had been speculating for a few weeks now what goodies may be in this product releasing at the end of the month. 

These pre-constructed theme decks have been rleased on a regular basis each year, and have been developed specifically to be played against eachother.  In recent years, Duel Decks had been connected to the themes of the large fall sets and contain some early preview cards.  This does not appear the case for this product as there is only reprints.  What we do have to look forward to are reprints that some gamers have been looking to acquire including some new art.  Here they are now -



MIND
• Lovisa Coldeyes
• Zo-Zu the Punisher
• Gutterual Response
MIGHT
• Jhoira of the Ghitu
• The Unspeakable
• Desperate Ritual



From a review of the decklists, it looks like we have 10 rares, and 1 mythic rare in each deck, including supporting uncommons and commons.  Without having played these yet, we imagine that the 'Mind' list may run a risk of getting run over early game, but promises to stabilize and deliver a solid later game.  Here is the info you may need to know -

Description
Duel Decks let players dive right into battle with ready-to-play, sixty-card decks that contain powerful cards united by a theme.

Will calculated schemes of the mind outwit and prevail? Or will the pure, bold power of might triumph?

Participants play with a random Duel Deck at the beginning of each round and then see which faction wins at the end of the tournament.


Contents: 
2 Ready-to-play, 60-card decks
2 Deck boxes
10 creature tokens
2 Spindown life counters
Strategy insert
Rules reference card

Duel Decks: Mind vs. Might
Release Date: March 31, 2017
Official Three-Letter Code: DDS
Twitter Hashtag: #MTGMVM
Languages Available: English, Japanese

MSRP: $24.99 *Applies to U.S. Only

Amonkhet Spoiler 3-18

~
Happy Saturday MTG peeps,

We now have our first possible Magic: the Gathering spoiler for Amonkhet.  This may be genuine or perhaps a bogus card posted by a terrible person.  We urge caution and refer you to the official Wizards of the Coast webpage here.  OK, so let's talk about this in detail.

Here's the image that was originally posted to the MTG subreddit linked over here, and subsequently reposted dozens of times across fan forums and websites.


In Portuguese with the following rough translation -

Dusk - 2WW
Sorcery, Rare
Destroy all creatures with power greater or equal to 3
//  FLIP //
Dawn - 3WW
Sorcery
Consequence (Cast this spell only from your graveyard, then exile it.)
Return all creature cards with power less than or equal to 2 from your graveyard to your hand.

210 / 269 R
AKH • PT  Illustrated by Noah Bradley


This was posted by redditor 'nerdyfanboy1' in this thread titled 'Get a translation? Possible spoiler for Amonkhet'.  The poster also provided this comment on the source -

“Ok so a friend of mine posted this on his Facebook. Said he pulled it from one of his modern masters 3 boxes. So that's my source”

It is not entirely impossible to find a card from one set accidentally put into a different set's booster pack, which WotC has admitted in the past as having happened with issues at the printers.  From the jagged card corner on the bottom right and damage to the top right, one could imagine this damaged card not being properly cleared from the machine.

The biggest oddity here is the card layout.  In the past, we have seen split cards, flip cards, and  double-faced cards, but not any which placed the second piece of the card at a 90 degree angle such as this one. 


Forum member atomicflip had this graphic produced to summarise some of the comments made on a card face design improvement where players could easily identify a card within a graveyard which could be cast again with flashback, or in the case of Amonkhet, the new unconfirmed mechanic of 'Consequence'.  So again, perhaps not that far-fetched.

The next issue with with the collector's number.  In the past, mono-coloured split cards were found within that colour where mutli-coloured splits were found near the end.  In the case of Dusk / Dawn, one would have expected the collector's number "210 / 269" to have been numbered somewhere below 20 perhaps.  Again, there could be a change made by Wizards of the Coast with the ordering system.

Alright - our feelings.
We love us some recursion, especially when it is prefaced by a board-wipe.  We have personally lost track of flashback cards in the 'yard' and like this improvement.  We do not care for the squashed-down art however.

Your call - Fake or Real ?

MTG Path of the Planeswalker

~
Happy Thursday MTG peeps,

Here at MTG Realm we do love us our Magic: the Gathering lore and would admit that our favourite day of the week (other than Friday Night Magic at our local shop OMG! Games, here in Barrie, Ontario) is most decidedly Wednesday.  This day typically provides a new story installment on Wizards of the Coast Magic: the Gathering website.  Last week, one of our blog's readers asked after where to find the full web series for the Path of the Planeswalker comics.  Although we fired off links, we want to follow-up with all the story links in today's post.

Path of the Planeswalker is a compilation of the planeswalker web comics, that appeared on magicthegathering.com, along with a previously unseen bonus comic. It was published in January 5, 2010.   Here is the round-up of the web comics series -

 

Fuel for the Fire, By Doug Beyer
Chandra steals a scroll from the Sanctum of Stars on Kephalai. Jace chases after her on an errand for the Infinite Consortium.

The Seeker's Fall, By Doug Beyer
Tezzeret tries to uncover the secrets of the Seekers of Carmot.

The Hunter and the Veil, By Jenna Helland
Liliana is ordered by Kothophed to find the Chain Veil and comes across Garruk.

Flight of the White Cat, By Brady Dommermuth
When Ajani's brother is killed in an attack on his tribe, his spark flares. On Jund he encounters Sarkhan Vol.
~


The Veil's Curse, By Doug Beyer
After she cursed him, Garruk embarks on a hunt for Liliana, bringing him to Jace on Ravnica. Meanwhile Liliana uses the Veil to her advantage.

Honor Bound, By Jenna Helland
Elspeth witnesses the Conflux.

Journey to the Eye, By Jenna Helland
Chandra searches for the Eye of Ugin.

Awakenings, By Doug Beyer
Jace chases after Chandra in a race to the Eye of Ugin.

MTG B&R Update

~
Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,

Yesterday's much anticipated Ban and Restricted Announcement brought no changes at all to Magic: the Gathering fans.  To some, this was welcome news while others are vocal about the domination of standard constructed by two decklists - that of Mardu Vechicles and and the Saheeli combo.


Personally, we thought the January Banned and Restricted announcement hitting Reflector Mage was pretty much spot on, but this delivered a real kick in the kackers to Smuggler's Copter pilots who we think was unjustified as there were answers for.  Although quite impossible to prognosticate accurately, we think standard would indeed be a much more diverse environment if the Copter were still with us.


To that end, we do not think there are many good answers to the Saheeli Rai / Felidar Guardian combo which wins games on turn 4 quite regularily.  Other than getting an Authority of the Consuls out early or having a fog effect (like Commencement of Festivities) immediately followed up with a board-wipe (like Fumigate) the chances of surviving until the next turn is slim to none, and Slim just left Town.


We are hopeful that this does breed creativity but do fear that diversity is not to be found until Amonkhet is released.  Further reading is encouraged - pop on over to Matt Sperling's article over on ChannelFireball.  While there, also have a look at this week's Standard Format Power Rankings.

DD: Mind vs. Might Preview

~
Happy Friday MTG peeps,

Yes, we already posted to the MTG Realm blog today (all about Coldsnap), but we definitely need to talk about a Magic: the Gathering spoiler spotted.  This image of the upcoming Duel Decks: Mind vs. Might, to be released at the end of this month was posted just now to the mothersite (linked over here) but spoiled a day earlier by redditor OnnaJReverT in the EDH subreddit.



The face cards here are Jhoira of the Ghitu (the 'Mind' faction) versus Lovisa Coldeyes (the 'Might' faction).  The original card arts were illustrated by Kev Walker for Jhoira and Brian Snoddy for Lovisa, both of which were fan favourites.  The new card arts are very lovely with Jhoira being illlustrated by Magali Villeneuve and Anna Steinbauer illustrating Lovisa.


Jhoira of the Ghitu, 1UR
Legendary Crature - Human Wizard, Myuthic Rare
2, Exile a nonland card from your hand: Put four time counters on the exiled card. If it doesn't have suspend, it gains suspend. (At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter from that card. When the last is removed, cast it without paying its mana cost. If it's a creature, it has haste.)
2/2

Lovisa Coldeyes, 3RR
Legendary Creature - Human, Mythic Rare
Each creature that's a Barbarian, a Warrior, or a Berserker gets +2/+2 and has haste.
"A massacre? It is a mercy we grant them. this way they won't freeze to death."
3/3


As for the cards themselves, Jhoira does see some play in Commander, and is fairly versatile, either getting mana expensive Eldrazi sized threats onto the battlefield (think  Emrakul, the Aeons Torn) or in a number of other ways like a 'turn and burn' decklist.  Anywhoos, let's get some background on Duel Decks first.

Duel Decks are a series of theme decks that started in 2007 with Elves vs. Goblins. They contain two 60-card decks designed and developed specifically to be played against each other by two people.  Each set depicts a notable rivalry. Until Venser vs. Koth, the sets alternated between showing two rival factions, and two rival planeswalkers, and often tie into current or future storylines, which is of course why this has our attention.  There may be an chance that there may be some soon-to-be standard legal Amonkhet cards in this mix.  Here are some fast facts for this new MTG product -

Mind vs. Might represents the age-old clash between mages and warriors, brains and brawn. Clever plots or raw power-which will you choose?

Contents
2 Ready-to-play, 60-card decks
2 Deck boxes
10 creature tokens
2 Spindown life counters
Strategy insert
Rules reference card


MSRP: approximately $25

Coldsnap'd

~
Happy Friday MTG peeps,


Whatever that uninformed individual Scott Pruitt (American EPA Administrator) says about Climate Change, this winter here in Canada has been a wild one, and atmospheric carbon dioxide is the hard science behind it.  Should you find yourself in Central Ontario, Canada this evening, stop by OMG! Games in Barrie and warm yourself up to some Commander of Standard Friday Night Magic.

With long-standing weather records being continually made, we've been in shorts and a tee one day followed by a cold snap the next.  As this is a Magic: the Gathering fan blog, we should probaly get down to business with some content.  Speaking of cold snap, tooday's post is all about the set 'Coldsnap', which was released waaay back on July 21, 2006.  Yes - the summer, and not during the winter.  We don't know what sort of backwards frackin' pageantry from Wizards of the Coast this date was about, perhaps to give some minor relief with those without an air-conditioner on a hot summer's day back in 2006.


First a bit of backstory / vorthos about this set, which we've borrowed from former Wizards staffer John Tynes, who also by-the-way has a very excellent write-up about the genesis of Wizards of the Coast. Should you wish a great summary of this or other sets, we suggest you would be well served to pop on over to Kissama Yatsu's website, linked over here.  Keeping the Cold was a great short story by Jeff Grubb, which one could find in the Fat Pack (Bundle) of this set.

Wizards of the Coast
Fat Pack Player's Guide 

The beginning of the Ice Age started with detonation of the Golgothian Sylex which had the ended the Brothers' War, shattered the multiverse and threw Dominaria in for a rather long chill. 

Snow-Covered Island, illustrated by Franz Vohwinkel

Several hundred years after the end of the Brothers' War, a severe ice age has descended over the land, reducing mighty civilizations to scattered tribes and changing the very face of the landscape. The slow creep of glaciers, the mighty gales of blizzards, and the numbing cold of lengthy winters have all combined to make Dominia a tough place to live.

Thrumming Stone, illustrated by Rob Alexander

Things are especially tough in Kjeldor. Founded several hundred years ago by the great hero Kjeld, this kingdom began with a handful of tribes clustered around a group of hot springs. Thanks to the heat of the springs and the resourcefulness of its people, Kjeldor has grown even in the thick of the ice and snow. Spring and summer bring only short relief before fall becomes winter and the snows come again. Even in mighty Kjeldor, you must be strong, clever, and resourceful to survive.

As if the ice age weren't bad enough, recent events have brought more gloom to the inhabitants of the kingdom. A mighty necromancer, Lim-Dûl, has risen beyond the mountains. With the aid of the demon lords Leshrac and Tevash Szat, Lim-Dûl has created an army of undead followers who are destroying village after village. The knightly orders of Kjeldor have fought hard, but against undead foes even their vaunted prowess may not be sufficient.

Grim Harvest, illustrated bu Zoltan Boros & Gabor Szikszai


Onyx Talisman Kjeldor isn't alone in this fight, however. To the north, the scattered barbarian tribes of Balduvia have aid to lend. To the south, the elves and druids of Fyndhorn forest can bring the will of the goddess Freyalise to bear against the necromantic hordes. To the west, machinists and archaeologists excavate the ruined city of Soldev, uncovering mysterious and dangerous relics of the long-ago Brothers' War. And somewhere, a secret school of illusionists holds strange powers of its own.

Moving off from the vorthos side, one of the best ways to explore this new set is look at the cars of the set with the Coldsnap Theme Decks.


Kjeldoran Cunning (White / Blue)
The noble Kjeldoran Soldiers have teamed up with the crafty Zuran Wizards to build an army that can outfight and outthink any foes. With the “Kjeldoran Cunning” deck, you’re the general of that army. You’ll need all your wits about you to win the fight.

Snowscape (Blue / Black)
Grab your mittens and a shovel, because it’s hip-deep in snow in here! With the “Snowscape” deck, you’ll harness the powerful magic of the ice to freeze out your opponents. The deck is filled with snow permanents and cards that get more powerful with snow permanents around. Get a few of them working together, and the cold won’t be the only reason your opponent will be shivering.

Beyond The Grave (Black / Red)
To a necromancer, death is the most delicious part of life—and when playing the “Beyond the Grave” deck, you’re the necromancer. Don’t hesitate to send your minions to their doom, because each death increases your dark powers. The more corpses you produce, the more zombie fodder you’ll have, and the more spells you’ll return from your graveyard to your hand.

Aurochs Stampede (Red / Green)
The Ice Age card Aurochs is a creature with trample that, when it attacks, gets a bonus for each other attacking Aurochs. At the time, there was only one question: What other Aurochs? The “Aurochs Stampede” deck finally answers that question, as three new Aurochs show up to really get the herd rumbling.

Amonkhet Archenemy

~
Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

Today on MTG Realm, we should like to talk about the upcoming Magic: the Gathering release of 'Archenemy: Nicol Bolas', to be released in June, 2017.  The last Archenemy set came out back in June of 2010 - yep - quite some time ago.  In Archenemy: Nicol Bolas, one player takes on the role of the elder dragon Planeswalker while the rest unite to meet the challenge.  


From the product packaging which was previewed at the New York Toy Fair by Hasbro, it looks like the Planeswalker will be Nicol Bolas (the Archenemy), along with Gideon Jura, Chandra Nalaar and Nissa Revane.  The packaging art appears to have this set on the new ancient Egyptian themed Plane of Amonkhet.  We also know from Wizards of the Coast that Lilianna is also on this Plane and her absence on the Archenemy product art battling Bolas is the source of some speculation.

Although the cards in the regular decks are thought to be all reprints, we can expect four non-foil planeswalker cards, blessed with new art.  We are certainly pumped on the hope that some (or all) of the twenty new 'Scheme' cards may have some Amonkhet flavour.  Anywhoos, here is the info you may need to know for Archenemy: Nicol Bolas

Archenemy is a multiplayer Magic format in which players unite against a common foe—the "Archenemy"—whose power is multiplied by a second deck of twenty "scheme" cards designed to even the odds.  In Archenemy: Nicol Bolas, one player takes on the role of the elder dragon Planeswalker while the rest unite to meet the challenge. The set includes four ready-to-play sixty-card decks, plus all new scheme cards that affect the game in powerful ways.

Contents
4 ready-to-play 60-card decks 
20 oversized scheme cards
10 double-sided tokens
4 deck boxes
1 life tracker
1 rules insert

Set Name: Archenemy: Nicol Bolas
Release Date: June 16, 2017
Twitter Hashtag: #MTGARCHENEMY
Languages Available: English
MSRP: $59.99 *Applies to U.S. Only

As for the rules, we will direct you to this post on the Wizards of the Coast site.  In brief, a lone player, called the “Archenemy”, plays against a team of opponents with the use of a second deck consisting of over-sized cards of the card type scheme. The schemes basically represent a free spell per turn and help to balance out the odds for the Archenemy. The Archenemy's opponents work cooperatively against the lone player and, much like partners in Two-Headed Giant, take their turn simultaneously. The Archenemy begins the game with 40 life, while each other player begins the game with only 20. The Archenemy wins if all of his or her opponents are eliminated from the game. All of the opposing players, even those who have already lost the game, win if the Archenemy is eliminated.

Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,

Not much news in the Magic: the Gathering world today that caught our attention - gamers still pumped to draft Modern Masters 2017 this weekend, the folks at MTG Realm are still playing filthy casual kitchen table MTG, and the best comedy on the telly is American politics (so sorry to our cousins to the south).

Anywhoos, today we are catching up to what we've been posting over on the Tumblr machine -

Magic The Gathering Live Action Trailer

There has been a lot of Magic: the Gathering promo videos / set trailers, but one of my favourite to date is still this one for Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013, which prominently features an encounter with the Mind-Mage Jace and evil Elder Dragon Nicol Bolas.


What is your favourite MTG trailer ?

Magic: the Gathering - Comic Book Angel
Serra Angel is a comic released by ARMADA in 1996. It is written by Margaret Weis and illustrated by Rebecca Guay.

“A young wizard who wants it all, summons the one being who can give it to him… the Serra Angel.”

Aldon, a young man from a Dominaria lost his castle to the wizard Dreygar. He summons a Sengir vampire, a frozen shade, and a bog wraith to help him to regain his castle, and later summons a Serra angel, who shows him the beauty of the world. Dreygar then sends a fallen angel to seduce Aldon. Aldon, his creatures, and the Serra angel assault the castle; Aldon kills the fallen angel and Dreygar, and once again rules his castle. However, his angel perishes in the battle against the fallen angel.


This comic came along with a lovely over-sized 6″ x 9″ alternate art (by  Rebecca Guay) insert.

Modern Masters FULL Preview

~
Happy Friday MTG peeps,

Happy indeed as it is Friday and the end of the work / school week for most and later this evening, unwind with a few FNM matches of Magic: the Gathering at our local gaming store, OMG! Games.  Sounds good - more so, if the horrific winter storm clears up in time.  Here is a pic of what it is like outside right now (early afternoon) here in Barrie, Ontario, where a trailer of Georgian Bay is eliminating any kind of visibility.  In this rather murky image, there is a City and beautiful waterfront.  



Anywhoos, if we can't convince the sled dogs to go out tonight, we'll stay in and look over all the cards in the soon-to-be-relased Modern Masters 2017 set.  Today's article on MTG Realm summarises what one can expect with the new set.  For the full card image gallery, pop on over to the Wizards of the Coast site (being hosted on a server in Seattle, where is is abundantly more cheerful outside).

Big news - Damnation receives its first reprint in a set.  Also of note, is that both Snapcaster Mage and Cavern of Souls become the first cards originally printed as a rare in a standard set printed after mythic rares were introduced, to be reprinted as a mythic rare.  This set looks pretty much awesome and we're looking forward to draft and collect.  There is a total of 249 cards (101 commons, 80 uncommons, 53 rares, 15 mythic rares) to be assembled in a variety of awesome shapes 'n' forms for limited.


From today's article from WotC staffer Sam, it appears that the Modern Masters 2017 features the following limited archetypes:

White-Blue - Blink
Blue-Black - Instant Control
Black-Red - Unearth/Sacrifice
Red-Green - Token Go-Wide
Green-White - Populate
White-Blue-Black - Control (with Creatures)
Blue-Black-Red - Graveyard
Black-Red-Green - Sacrifice
Red-Gree-White - Token Aggro
Green-White-Blue - Splicers

Many Modern format gamers are quite interested in Changes in Rarity, as this does drive (to a limited point) the prices of card singles.  Here is the quick 'n' dirty summary of rarity changes -

Common to Uncommon : Compulsive Research, Molten Rain, Vithian Stinger, Terminate, Azorius Signet, Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet, Gruul Signet, Selesnya Signet, Orzhov Signet, Izzet Signet, Golgari Signet, Boros Signet, Simic Signet

Uncommon to Common : Magma Jet, Burning-Tree Emissary, Gnawing Zombie, Augur of Bolas

Rare to Common : Mortician Beetle

Rare to Uncommon : Goblin Assault, Inquisition of Kozilek, Sedraxis Specter

Rare to Mythic : Snapcaster Mage

Mythic to Rare : Falkenrath Aristocrat, Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius
~

Here at MTG Realm, we are definitely interested in new illustrations provided by Wizards of the Coast.  The last Modern Masters set had about 5 new card arts if we recall correctly.  You should be quite pleased to learn that we have identified about 14 new card arts I have taken note of so far :

Abyssal Specter - Daarken
Agent of Masks - Allen Williams
Cavern of Souls - Richard Wright
Compulsive Research - Sara Winters
Goblin Guide - Filip Burburan
Might of old Krosa - Lars Grant-West
Molten Rain - Sung Choi
Past in Flames - Anna Steinbauer
Ranger of Eos - Ryan Pancoast
Serum Visions - Izzy
Snapcaster Mage - Ryan Alexander Lee
Stony Silence - Mark Poole
Terminate - Lucas Graciano

Urbis Protector - Magali Villeneuve

Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
