Magic Weely Update

Friday_Night_Magic_3Well, Planeswalkers, it seems our time with Innistrad is starting to dwindle down. Don’t get me wrong, there’s still plenty of Friday Night Magic and Grand Prix events to go and other news and updates before we hit Eldritch Moon  this July. But, with the Pro Tour over and Game Day weekend in the rearview mirror, the set and its top cards, decks and strategies have been pored over and analyzed in dozens (maybe even hundreds) of articles, forums and social sites.

Magic Weekly Update

Friday_Night_Magic_3Well fellow planeswalkers, it seems our time with Zendikar is coming to a close. Let us briefly reflect on all this block has given us: a whole new basic land type, new mechanics and, in the story, a new group of planeswalkers dedicated to fighting the remaining Eldrazi and working together to route out evil on other planes. Well, they’ve certainly got their work cut out for them as Wizards moves on to Shadows Over Innistrad dropping on April 8.
