M13 Pre-Release Report

Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

Our local gaming store, OMG! Games here in Barrie, Ontario ran a ton of Magic 2013 Pre-Release events, starting with a midnight event on Friday, with many Magic the Gathering players staying after FNM.  They also rans events all day Saturday with two more on Sunday, including a 2HG event.  

We played in the M13 pre-release on Sunday and here's the customary video of our pulls and some banter at the store . . .

Our Rare Pulls included - Odric, Master Tactician, Serra Avatar, Planar Cleansing, Boundless Realms, Quirion Dryad, Glacial Fortress.
We thought that white was fairly strong in our limited pool but was a bit undecided as to what other colour we should couple with.  Our final build was a black / white decklist with an exalted theme :

23 Spells
1cmc - 2x Vile Rebirth, Disentomb, Duress, Duty Bound Dead
2cmc - 3x Silvercoat Lion, Dark Favor, Ravenous Rats, Aven Squire, Knight of Glory, Ajani's Sunstriker, Sign in Blood
3cmc - Oblivion Ring, Crusader of Odric, Giant Scorpion, Murder
4cmc - Primal Clay, Divine Verdict, Blood Reckoning, Odric, Master Tactician
5cmc - Essence Drain

17 Lands : Evolving Wild, 8x Plains, 8x Swamp
Magic Players will notice that the game tempo may have slowed doen just a titch in comparison with previous core sets.  There are a few solid cards we're interested in getting into a standard constructed deck to spin at an FNM but we really need to further evaluate these choices.

Speaking of FNM, the official M13 Release / Launch is this Friday 13th.  We'll be headed down to OMG! Games to play and score the Launch promo, Staff of Nin.  If you are near Barrie (under an hour's drive north of Toronto), drop in.  FNM gets underway at 7:00 p.m.  Here's the 4.1.1 on the location - OMG Games And Collectibles / 130 Bell Farm Rd, Barrie, Ontario / (705) 721-4263 /
