With all the excitement surrounding spoiler season and the influx of new cards in Magic Origins being released, sometimes it is difficult to remember what core sets used to be about – reprints and old favorites coming back. So here is a list of some of the exciting ones...
It has been a while since we've had a sacrifice engine without mana cost in Standard. Not only does this card have the potential to see play in more aggressively-oriented decks , but also is best friends with Liliana, Heretical Healer. Maybe someone will even be able to break the "go-infinite" Boonweaver Giant/Gift of Immortality combo.
This Zombie is back with awesome new art. While we currently have access to a similar effect in Standard creature type cannot be underestimated. With Risen Executioner around, Standard may have a powerful Zombie deck that includes the often forgotten Necromancer's Stockpile and the new Undead Servant.
Courser of Kruphix, make a 4/4 Angel? Constellation is the real deal in conjunction with this old favorite. In the past, Sigil was much harder to activate, with its owner having to play obscure enchantments, some that didn't even impact the board! Until we fight for Zendikar, we can play a deck full of creatures that all make Angels when they enter the battlefield. Don't sleep on the potential of this card.
One of my all time favourite cards. It's hard to describe how powerful it feels to have a creature in play and draw a card for just two mana. Elvish Visionary is that old familiar feeling and, frankly, it has a better creature type. Looks like elf decks are going to be good again!
Just seems really good for white and I recon its going to see a bit of play. Finally I could not finish with out ...
We already have a lot of goblins in standard and many of them are present in some really good red decks. If you consider that alongside the fact that one of them is Goblin Rabblemaster, you'd better have red decks on your radar. The fact of the matter is, whether you decide to simply compliment your red deck with Piledriver as one of your two drops of choice or choose to push the theme with cards like Subterranean Scout and Obelisk of Urd, Goblin Piledriver will be an all-star.
Want to start playing with these cards then why not head along to one of our prerelease events, we have Midnight in just a few hours time and then of course there is Saturday and Sunday events at the more reasonable time of 1pm. If you want to come but have not already purchased a ticket let me know as soon as you can and you can pay on the day!
