mono coloured deck's are out!!!

Post  Lim-Dul on Wed Aug 13, 2008 2:39 pm

in the next MtG expansion this will be a rule to. any doubt? take a look at these links and take some time looking at the "logo" on the botom of the image

http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=mtgcom/arcana/1652
http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=mtgcom/arcana/1653
http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=mtgcom/arcana/1654

it's a bit diferent from the original, isn't it!?
if no is your answer, take a closer look, still can't find the diference!? it's time to get glasses!!!
yes, central piece is one colour and both side pieces are from it's "natural alied colours" so I guess it's true to say that golden/hybrid cards are here to stay.
Impact?
1st, "Duals" and other non-basic lands will keep their inflated market value, easy $$$ for wizards, hard for the players;
2nd, MtG is around & about colour, to build a deck is much more mindbreaking this way, I like this part of the game very "mucho";
3rd, the game is on a higher level of intelect due to the added variables and much, much cooler this way.

"smart guy question":
on March 18th wizards announced Shards of Alara with this statement "Five worlds share one fate."
http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=mtgcom/arcana/1549
since the central piece of the logo is a "White Gem" do you think W is going to be dominant in this block?
Antoine Ruel's invitational card displays what seems to be a "W Coloured Knight" holding a hawk (hawks are W), Ajani (Lorwyn's W Planewalker) is also present, the prewiew card that comes in Eventide boosters show's a Knight riding a Lion with a Castle in backgroung (BTW it look as if taken out of Narnia)...
I guess we'll have to wait untill September 27 to find out.

I love the art and it seems to me that Mirri and Jedit would have lots of fun in Alara.

Anyway, that's what many think, that white will be a center piece in Alara. Not sure if that's true and if so how will it affect the game. One thing that is taken in consideration too is that this new block will be centered in the story and not on the card flavour as opposed to Lorwyn/Shadowmoor.
I doubt that this set will see hybrid cards though. But ain't sure about it. Smile

As for Ruel... He's a ranger and rangers tend to be G or GW. Most important of all is that his first submitted card was GU. Yet he's too heavily armoured to be a ranger and that is something odd.
Also, agreed! This reminds a little bit too much of CS Lewis, Narnia.

Together? I'd say they're against each other.
As for the Spawn...

"First strike
At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice Pit Spawn unless you pay Black BB.
Whenever Pit Spawn deals damage to a creature, remove that creature from the game."
Yes, he's a 6/4.

You see, having first trike it NEVER gets damaged by the opponent creatures. Those very same creatures don't go to the graveyard either. They get removed from the game. They can't be reanimated nor used to trigger anything (Goblin Shenannigans, Grave Pact, etc...).
This only plays in a mono black deck (restrictive, no doubt) meaning that it has access to Dark Ritual, Cabal Coffers, Bad Moon, gets pumped by Ascendant Evincar, Creakwood Liege...
When you play it you're supposed to have at least 2 Bad Moons and 1 or 2 Lieges, making it a 9/7 creature when it hits play. At least.
2 mana on the upkeep? That's hardly a proble, I'd say. You're the one playing winny... Even if you only play it at turn 5 (through mana enhancers like Cabal Ritual or Dark Ritual or even Song of the Damned), most probably on the 6th turn you'll have a nearly empty hand. Those 2 mana won't be that much needed and you're kicking ass with a HUGE game finisher. You can even give him shadow/fear for the fatal blow if you want/need to.
This, my friend, is one of the best creatures on my (and possibly only on that one, granted) book on the 7 converted mana cost to ever see print. It almost says "Pit Spawn smashes!!!". If only it was green and used some purple torn shorts... But then he'd be a rip off. Smile

So, granted... It has no evasion... Because it doesn't need evasion. Its a first strike creature with an enhanced venom cast on it. It could even be a 1/1 for all that matters. It would still clean the board. After cleaning the small things it looks you straight in the face and ask you if you want to feel its wrath or if you're going to feed it your huge 25/25 flying/trampler/vigilance/hasted winning condition. It fears nothing!

And if you dislike the upkeep cost, just throw in a couple Eon Hubs. They'll remove that for you.
Just remember though... Juzam Djinn, Junun Efreet and Grinning Demon also had upkeep costs and they were gold on several decks. For me, this is the cherry on top of the cake.

Think of this:

Pit Spawn + 2 Bad Moon + 1 Creakwood Liege + 1 Ascendant Evincar + 1 Mephidross Vampire = ?

as the topic says "mono coloured decks are out!!!"
but if you play a Black Weenie by the 6th turn you should already have won the game,
if not, it's time to drop Damnation to klear the table and start dropping tons of "the little people" again
