M15 will soon be upon us, and everyone and their mother is getting their set reviews out. Since you're reading my article on the finance site I write for, I'm going to take a wild guess that you'd be interested in Brainstorm Brewery's financial set review of M15 with special guest Sheldon Menery. It's going to be up on Gathering Magic on Friday. Enjoy.

Still, this is a card game and games need to be played sometimes. That's why we need to get ready for the prerelease. LSV is balls deep in the limited set reviews right now.




Some of his evaluations don't jive with what I thought, so I'm going to have to spend the next few days trying to figure out if he's wrong or I am. History shows it's more likely he knows what he's talking about, but he's played as many M15 sealed events as I have so anything is possible. Reading a limited expert's evaluation is going to be very instructive and really help you out, but I would also go through the whole spoiler and give every card a 1-5 score yourself. It pays to know which combat tricks to play around and which bombs they could have.

If an academic pursuit like marking up a copy of the spoiler with numerical scores doesn't quite do it, I've found a place where you can generate practice M15 sealed deck pools.

Here be pools.

It doesn't have the best interface and its idea of "random" leaves a bit to be desired with my double Polymorphist's Jest, but it's better than a shotgun blast to the torso when it comes to sealed practice. Do these at work if you can get away with it. Your job's not that important.

I'm off to practice M15 sealed pools. Enjoy the prerelease this weekend, and if you're in Boston next weekend, come say hello. I'll be dressed conspicuously.
