Last week, I took a quick initial look at the next Magical set, Born of the Gods. At that time, the spoiler was only showing 28/165 cards, which wasn’t a lot… However, what surprised me at that time was just how many of the cards spoiled could potentially find homes in my EDH decks. Now, with lots more cards spoiled (64/165 at this time), it’s time to dive back into the set. What else will I be trying in my EDH decks?

 

It’s time to find out!

Even though as I write this, there are only 28/165 cards spoiled, that’s enough to have a quick look, with a more in-depth writeup next week… Let’s find out what this set looks like so far for my EDH decks!
