Magic Weekly Update

Friday_Night_Magic_3We’re only one week out from the Kaladesh  prerelease Planeswalkers, and the card previews and announcements just keep rolling in. This week, we’ll get you prepared for prerelease day and get you more hyped for the new set (if that’s even possible) with some cool news. All that’s left for you to answer, is what type of inventor do you want to be? Do you want to build an army of small automatons and trinkets that work together to topple your opponent? How about one massive construct that you fuel with as much energy as you can muster to smash your enemies? Perhaps you treat battle like a demolition derby, smashing and exploding stuff on the battlefield until it’s a smoldering ruin and then fixing it all up to go again. Or, is your mind focused on sabotage and making sure your opponent’s inventions malfunction at just the right time and make you seem superior? Find out when you play! Continue reading

Magic Weekly Update

Friday_Night_Magic_3Ultimate power is within your grasp. The crown and title of King or Queen of Paliano. You and your followers (or minions or pawns depending on what type of ruler you choose to be) have an entire city to win the support of. Will you pull the strings from the shadows, manipulating, bribing, and forcing others to do your dirty work before you sneak in for the victory? Will you win the people’s hearts through honor and justice, punishing the wicked and corrupt and taking their place to build a better city? Will you charm the High Council, using your influence and allies to rise above the weak-willed? Or will you rely on good old fashioned brute force and cleave a bloody path to the throne? These are the questions you’ll have to ask yourself for Conspiracy: Take the Crown, the new multiplayer, free-for-all Magic set dropping August 26. This week I’ll take you through all things Conspiracy  to prepare you for the draft including story, card previews and some of the unique mechanics introduced for this specific style of play.

Your fate is in the hands of others, Planeswalkers. What type of ruler will you be? Continue reading

Magic Weekly Update

Friday_Night_Magic_3We’re getting closer and closer to the end of summer Planeswalkers, but by no means is the world of Magic cooling down.

Speaking of Eldritch Moon, last weekend’s Pro Tour ended the 2015-2016 Pro Season, and a chaotic competition for the #1 spot meant a big change in the pro landscape. Meanwhile, Monday starts previews for an interesting new set focused solely on multiplayer. Seem a little overwhelming? Don’t worry, we’ll break it all down for you-just sit back, grab a nice, cold drink and read on. Continue reading
