Ready for the midnight prerelease tonight? I know I am!
I'm ready to pick white if there are white boxes left, I'm ready to trade for Kruphix just to have it and I'm ready to sell into hype around cards like Godsend. This is going to be a sweet prerelease, and I'm excited about new cards.
When we reviewed the 'Heroes vs. Monsters" duel deck on the podcast, a lot of people laughed at Marcel and me for acting like Miraculous Recovery was a new card. It wasn't. It was a reprint, but since Marcel didn't play back then and I didn't play bad cards back then, neither of us knew that. Test yourself before you scroll - how many reprints are in Journey Into Nyx? 1? 2? 0? Can you guess? The answer may surprise you.
Redditor /u/justthereforhides provided us with this handy visual guide. I like the Riddle of Lightning is not only back but it brought a cycle with it. How cool is that? Ok, I need to calm down, it isn't THAT cool. I liked using Riddle to flip up Greater Gargadon, something I did exactly 0 times despite having both cards in my deck. I didn't riddle someone and Lava Axe them with my second copy of Riddle, which was fun. It was for lethal, and was a saucy "Still had all these" moment because I was about to riddle him again next turn if he lived. People would have called me "The Riddler" I would have riddled him so much.
OK, no they would not have.
Finally, one last bit of prerelease prep, Limited Resources has posted their common and uncommon set review.
Good luck, have fun, and don't tell your opponent to die in a fire, I don't care how riddled with lightning you become.
