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!
I can’t believe that we are just one week away from Return to Return to Return to Return to Ravnica. The full spoiler is available on the WotC website here. Now that we’ve seen all of the cards, these are the Guilds of Ravnica #GRN cards that you should hope to open or trade for at the prerelease:
The Dragonmarks are essentially 12 new subraces or variant races for humans, half-elves, half-orcs, halflings, elves, gnomes, and dwarves. Each of the 12 can only be used with a specific race, though they can be boosted with a feat for Greater Dragonmarks, and Aberrant Dragonmarks can be applied to any character at any time, though they come with a cost.
Due to the sheer size of this Unearthed Arcana, I have forgone any extreme number crunching in exchange for bite-sized takes on how I feel they stack up. If I miss something good or bad, please be sure to let me know in the comments!
For better or for worse, Wizards continues to print exclusive Standard-legal cards that can only be obtained by means other than sealed booster packs. On August 28th, the image and translated text of the Guilds of Ravnica Buy-A-Box promo Impervious Greatwurm was leaked to the internet.
In our second-to-last Premodern primer (colorless Artifacts and Lands will be the last one!), we take a look at the multicolored “gold” cards that are legal in Premodern!
We have yet another set of Adventure Seeds here today! It’s time to get spooky as we head into a Witch’s Swamp, where all kinds of creepy stuff happens.
I got off to a slow start with this set, but eventually found a good stride coming up with ideas. We see a few variations of common themes but also some original ideas as well for good measure and to surprise your players with. And a lot of these work in a swamp or a spooky forest, so feel free to place them where you see fit!
Some quick assumptions about the swamp that I had in mind, but as always they can be easily changed:
