Pre-release Fever

So it looks like I will be traveling to the magic pre-release tournament tomorrow.  I’m excited.  The last time I was in a magic tournament was around the time Uzra’s Saga came out.  I’m actually curious if my DCI number even works anymore.

A few hot new cards that I can’t wait to get my hands on:

  1. Pact of negation – a showstopper right here.  There’s been a few times when I’ve had a killer combo ready, my cousin is in “dead man’s hand” and somehow he pulls the one spell that can mess me up.  No more.  Early prediction – next tournament champion is fielding 4 of these.
  2. Judge Unworthy – so I get to stack my deck and wipe our your creature?  For 2 mana?  Sold.
  3. Glittering Wish – another wish card and you can pull any multi-color card you want for 2 mana.  Being green/white that can grab some powerful stuff.
  4. Magus of the Vineyard – cheap mana acceleration and green.  Enough said.
  5. Heartwood Storyteller – lets go stompy on the annoying control deck.  Now, I love a good control deck – but stompy is fun.  This card will be headhunted.

So hopefully I do well – I’ve never done this type of tournament – and I get some cool new cards.

Random Tidbit: With the iPhone and all the clones of that coming out, be careful disposing of your old phone.  It could come back to bite you.
