Hour of Devastation… Sphinx tribal?!

 

The last year or so has been a pretty good time to be playing EDH. Lots of new cards tailored for our format, from giant monsters, to big silly spells, and everything in between.

As I went over on Monday, spoilers have started for the next set, Hour of Devastation, the sequel to the Egypt-themed Amonkhet, and it looks like Wizards very much has us EDH players in mind with this set… in fact, it looks like they even have cards planned for those of us who love tribal EDH decks!

But not just any tribe… tribal Sphinxes?! Let’s take a look at the new legend previewed today!

Archenemy – Nicol Bolas: First Impressions

 

Wizards has spoiled their latest MTG supplemental product, Archenemy: Nicol Bolas, and I wanted to touch quickly on it today. Though I don’t believe the first Archenemy sold very well seven years ago, I was a huge fan of it, and I did pick up all the schemes to use in multiplayer every so often.

Now, with the latest Archenemy set being Nicol Bolas themed, it’s time to take a look and see what the evil Elder Dragon has in store for poor hapless heroes!

My Favorite Cards of the Past 25 Years

 

Last week, one thing I noticed the MTG pros were doing was to list their favorite 25 cards by the year they were originally printed, making very cool lists of each card they enjoyed playing the most in that year. As this year marks Magic’s 25th anniversary, I thought this was a great idea, and a good way to start off the week.

What’s on my list? Well, let’s take a look!

Is it really spoiler season time again? That was quick!

The entire spoiler for the newest MTG expansion Amonkhet is out, and this looks like a very interesting set. There are plenty of great multiplayer cards, and lots of shiny toys that I’m looking forward to adding into my decks.

Last year’s sets gave us a ton of fun new EDH cards to work with, and many of my decks got a well-deserved makeover. The question becomes, does this Egypt-flavored set continue that trend, and continue our MTG year with great EDH cards?

It’s time to take a look at this new set!

Still Alive!

 

It’s been a long time.

My computer died on me a few months ago, and in the months since then, my son was born, and he’s been keeping me busy.

Now that I’ve finally had a chance to get back to the site, I’ll be updating everyone as quickly as I can with the winner of The EDH Battle Royale V, the Un-Spiracy Cube, and so on.

Fear not, there will be lots more crotchety Magic to come!
