So Magic Origins went legal yesterday. Aggro players will be excited about Goblin Piledriver, Midrange fellas will love the new 4-mana sweeper Languish, Blue mages are happy with the functional reprint of Syncopate-Clash of Wills. Meanwhile, devotion decks are coming back with the additions of these cards:
Hello my fellow classmates,
The first PPTQ Milwaukee in KL hosted by our very own Classroom Cafe is just over and a huge congratulations to Mohd Rafiq for winning it. It is the first day of Dragons of Tarkir being release and there is much hype about how the face of standard would actually change from the release. From my experience in PPTQ Classroom, it seems to me most of the players are still sticking to the current proven and tested decks instead of brewing something out of the blue. It is no surprise to see a field dominated by Abzan Aggro, Abzan Control, Esper Control, Sultai Control, Gruul Monsters etc.
With Sarkhan now successfully Reforging Fate of Tarkir, Dragon Lords now rule Tarkir. Dragons of Tarkir is the Final set to the Khans of Tarkir Set, bearing over 264 cards in this set making it a large set. This is the set before Magic:Origins(Which is the last Core Set for Magic The Gathering). Here is a Video Premier of Dragons of Tarkir.
Khans of Tarkir is officially released, I'm pretty sure many of you are crazy about the Onslaught fetchlands reprint, dumping all money in to crack boxes or crates, trying to get playset of each. Myself, played Magic for 1 year plus, is also very excited about this set as I am building and starting to play more Modern. The fetchlands reprint obviously is allowing new players like me to get access to the alternatives of the Zendikar fetches to start Modern.
With Return to Ravnica rotating out, a new set has been introduced to us by Wizards, Khans of Tarkir. Every year, Magic the Gathering also introduces a new block or set for us in expanding the multiverse. This further expands the cards available to us for Standard, Modern, Legacy and EDH formats. With Pre-release just around the corner, let's take a walk through Memory Lane before heading into the new block.
Release of Khans of Tarkir is getting closer and closer. Which means alot of cards from Monoblack Devotion gonna rotate out soon. We will be missing Pack Rats, Lifebane Zombies, Desecration Demons and Underworld Connections. Because of this, I've decided to play with this deck few more times before the rotation.
The PTKTK has ended, if you followed the PTKTK coverage, you should have already know what decks are at the top. I am going to do a simple analysis here, on the decks that have at least 7 wins in the Standard Constructed portion (10 rounds) of the Pro Tour.
