Hello, and welcome to this week’s set review for the financial mind! We are looking at Lorwyn, a semi-recent set full of tribal alliances and intrigue. Lorwyn was the debut for Planeswalkers; the paragons of the marketing department made their first appearance here. This is where Jace and Ajani earned “Brands with Other Planeswalkers” and […]
