Brendan Burke here, and this is my debut into the Ready to Role team!
I recently returned from PAX Unplugged and got my hands on METAL and was impressed as usual by the craftsmanship of Lay Waste Games. Lay Waste Games is most commonly known for the game Dragoon (Previously reviewed here) and it’s expansion.
On November 28, 2018, Artifact, the hotly-anticipated electronic trading card game and its first set, A Call to Arms, were released. This love child between DotA and Magic: the Gathering is what we have all been waiting for.
Rubinia Soulsinger, a Green/White/Blue (“Bant”) legendary creature from Legends, has over four hundred decks on EDHREC. She was even reprinted in Commander Anthology. With that many people using Rubinia in regular EDH, she is likely a strong candidate for a commander in Old School Brawl, as well. So let’s take a look at the interactions, errata, and card selection that will be sure to make you the most hated person at the table!
New Unearthed Arcana, ahoy! This month we get some sweet rules for ships and managing them!
We get some new rules on improved stat blocks, the components that make them up, the officers and crew that run the ship, hazards and mutiny, and downtime management. These rules work together to put together an improved seafaring experience and I’m excited to dig into them! There’s not a lot of analysis going on this time, so I give each part a quick rundown and my thoughts on the rules.
What time is it? Adventure Seeds time! We’re high in the sky with a Floating City this time around, so come along and enjoy the ride!
I had a ton of fun writing these, and this may have been one of the easiest lists to write. The possibilities of a city that floats through the air are near limitless and I hope I put that to good use! From getting turned upside down, to flying monsters, and economic issues that can occur high up, there should be something for everyone!
The only real assumptions are that it’s a city (or large town), it’s built upon a floating mass of stone, dirt, and other earthy materials, and that it, be it slow or fast, floats through the sky and is not completely stationary.
Although the cards themselves are not very colorful, our final installment highlighting some of the best Premodern cards ever printed is perhaps the most exciting of them all! If you play or are interested in playing Premodern, you likely either played between ’95-’03 and strive to relive your favorite era of Magic or you are entirely new to the format and may not even know what some of these cards even do. Regardless, let’s take one final look at the cards of Magic: the Gathering’s Golden Age:
October 23rd is the full release of GWENT: GWENT Homecoming. If you are interested in watching some GWENT gameplay, We’ve been streaming it over on our Twitch. To celebrate Homecoming, here’s five reasons who you should play GWENT!
It’s October, which means the newest Unearthed Arcana is either going to be a trick or treat- and a treat it is! We’re taking a look at a group of Eberron style magic items, where magic is a part of everyday life.
Specifically we have 12 items to take a look at- 2 arcane focuses, 7 common magic items, and 3 Warforged parts. I’ll briefly describe each and give my thoughts on their in-game impact, even if they are understandably light on mechanics. Without further ado, let’s get to it!
