Blog the Magic Gathering

A poor man's blog for Magic the Gathering (MtG), Wizards of the Coast (WoTC), deck construction, cards, combos, game play, MtG podcasts, etc.

What is "Magic: the Gathering"? Magic is a collectible fantasy-themed playing card game kinda combining Uno, War, Chess, and art dealing: match colors, draw 4, high card beat low card, different cards attack in different ways while you ogle hot chicks and dragons drawn by your favorite artists on cards you can sometimes sell for big money.
It's Pokimon for grown ups. Srsly, get your Pokimon player a Magic deck and they'll instantly sprout pubes and consider a career as a mathmatician.

Rumor Mill: Tarshards, Marisi Twinclaw, Ethercaste Knight, Aven Mimic

Thanks to Calvin at
, for the rumored spoils.

Here are my thoughts:

Tarshards: Where's my Divining Top when I need it? :)

Marisi Twinclaw: I was expecting multi-hybrids (love'em!), but something about this card doesn't look right to me. Ok, Cat's are White, Double Strike is Red, and 2/4 is Green, but is it THAT Green? It looks we might have to pay middle-color mana if we want their allied color's keywords, instead of getting keywords directly from their colors.

Ether-caste Knight: Yep, Exalted is more Blue than White now.

Aven Mimic: Blue Aggro Wizards?! O_O AWESOME!! ^_^ ...except it's a bird. :-/ I hope they're time to turn it into an Angel Mimic, that would totally rock! Angel Wizards! YES!! ^_^

Now Tarshards makes me wonder if Black is getting sifters, like Catalogue or Commune with Nature. It needs it.
