Happy Monday MTG peeps,
Hope everyone had a great time at Theros Game Day over the weekend if you went. We went to OMG! Games here in Barrie, Ontario and washed out (1-2 drop) with our G/W Aggro build which took us to fourth place just the previous Friday Night Magic event. Afterwards, we developed a few modifications to make our strategy a bit more robust to the huge variety in our metagame but will need to grab a few more singles from MTG Mint Card. We also finally met MrScottyMac, The Eh Team member, LegitMTG writer and all-round good guy.
We also have a short video buzz through the Theros Game Day event as well . .
Next up - congratulations to Brian Braun-Duin who won the standard format Grand Prix tournament In Louisville this weekend with his Black Devotion build. Shuhei Nakamura won the sealed format Hong Kong with a solid Green White draft. Check out the coverage on the mothersite.
Anywhoos - onto today's article !
Over on the mothersite, we have an announcement from WotC with regards to the March 2014 Duel Decks . . .
Duel Decks: Jace vs. Vraska, Art by Igor Kieryluk~
Duel Decks: Jace vs. Vraska
Deck Design and Deck Development: Chris Millar and Sam Stoddard
Twitter Hashtag: #MTGJVV
Languages Available: English, Japanese
Release Date: March 14, 2014
Wow - yet another Jace. It seems like Wizards of the Coast really, really, really likes this Planeswalker. As soon as we read the announcement, all we could think was the look on Woody's face . . .
We rather like Vraska but were kinda hoping for another Planeswalker (almost any other) on the other side of that box. We also have to talk about the art used here. Don't misunderstand us, we really love Igor Kieryluk - think about Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite / Sangromancer / Enclave Cyrptologist - these beautiful arts are simply epic. What Wizards commissioned here was honestly rather terribad. Art appreciation is a personal thing and we are certain many players will love this new art (below) and will want to game with these new cards as soon as the product hits local gaming stores.
