Richyandrew posted a blog entry in RIchy Andrew's MTG BlogsLike the title says, I’ve thought of what I’d like to do in the new year concerning my favorite tabletop game; Magic: the Gathering. Instead of just typing a whole bunch of paragraphs, I figure it’s easier to do it in a list form. Now I’ve mention resolutions, like the billions of other people who have made them (and not keep them past the 5 days of the new year). I’d like to call them goals. I feel like goals is a better word to use than resolution. With goals you are more tempted to achieve them, as opposed to just wishful thinking. That’s just my opinion. Like the most non-original resolution is to lose weight. But instead if I make it a goal to reach my mark by a certain time of the year, I feel more tempted to do so. We understand each other? Here are my list, remember this is only concerning Magic: the Gathering. Get more cards (obvious right?) Try to go to a tournament event (providing it’s near me) and either: Blog about it Play. Keep up on the metagame of tournaments happening elsewhere in the world. Do more FNM. Join in on pre-releases. Support my local game shops more often. Mention my editor more in my blogs, just because he’s an awesome guy for taking me on and make my articles make sense for you to read. Thanks Marc! [editor: no problems! Sorry I have been kept so busy during the holidays] Become a Judge It’s not a very long list but these are my goals for the new year I want to try and achieve. What’s your resolutions? Or if you want to call it goals, what are your goals for the new year? As always, thanks for reading my blog! [editor: my number one goal is to put back together the mono-red burn deck I made in 1995. There will be Goblin Grenades…]
Richyandrew posted a blog entry in RIchy Andrew's MTG BlogsOn November 25, 2016, Wizards of the Coast will be releasing PLANECHASE ANTHOLOGY for a msrp price range of $149.00. Is it worth spending that much of your hard earned money? Let see if the contents of the product match the price tag. Planechase Anthology will have the planar and normal cards from Planechase and Planechase 2012, including the following: 4 ready to play decks from Planechase 2012 edition Each deck has 8 rare cards 35 double sided tokens Special edition planar die 4 spin down counters 4 slide deck boxes Brian Tinsman is the lead designer and concept on this set. He is also known for being the lead designer for the sets of Judgement, Scourge, Champions and Saviors of Kamigawa, Time Spiral, Planechase 2009, Rise of the Eldrazi, and Avacyn Restored. We don't know exactly what cards are going to be included in the set as of yet. Perhaps if there are spoilers we will get a better idea of whether it is worth $149.00 or not; it's kind of hard to say at this point. For some, it may be a bit much to spend all at once, especially so close to Christmas time. Perhaps if you share the cost with someone else it will make a good gift, or you could split the contents with a friend. The decision is really up to you. As always, thanks for reading my blog!
As the Eldritch Moon spoilers continue, it is revealed that two Planeswalkers will be making their return to the Magic the Gathering world, as they try to take on the mighty Emrakul, the Promised End. The Planeswalker I want to talk about first is originally from the Avacyn Restored: Tamiyo, Field Researcher. (Pictures below). Tamiyo costs one less mana to cast, though this time it is with three different colors: Green, White, Blue, and one Colorless, instead of three Colorless and two Blue. The new Tamiyo starts with 4 loyalty counters, just like the original Tamiyo did. Additionally, she has some interesting abilities. Those abilities are as follows: +1: Choose up to two target creatures. Until your next turn, whenever either of those creatures deals combat damage, you draw a card. -2:Tap up to two target nonland permanents. They don't untap during their controller's next untap step. -7: Draw three cards. You get an emblem with "You may cast nonland cards from your hand without paying their mana costs." Will this new Tamiyo get a lot of gameplay in the tournaments in the future? I know if I have Tamiyo in my deck I will definitely use her on the tabletop, but that’s just my opinion. As far as seeing this card being used a good amount by pro players, or used in the Grand Prix, we will have to wait for it to be released officially. How do you feel about the new Tamiyo? What type of deck would you build around her? As always, thanks for reading my blog!
