Dark Ascension

Postby Nonebutone » Thu Jan 12, 2012 11:07 am

With the new set coming out in just over 3 weeks, has anyone seen the previews?

I'm rather fond of the new sorin:

I really like his ultimate, his +1 is decent his -2 is really good in an aggro deck especially with poison still in the format. The colors are really good a lot of spells to protect him with O-Ring, Go for the throat, Doom Blade. his mana cost is good not too over powered until we see him in play.

Magic the Gathering is an evil that must be purged. It WAS fun when my area played funny themed decks, then everyone decided to make turn 1 kill decks.

That is why you make a friendly rule that no one can run infinite combos. It takes the fun out of the game and changes it to Magic who-can-combo-out-first the Gathering.

I just play Standard currently, Only infinity combos available now are... well not that difficult to stop.

I may try to build a black/white token deck based on Sorin, Bloodline keepers and other black/white control cards

Easy to deal with if you have the right cards. My deck was a vampire drain deck. All it did was -1/-1 everything to death.

Eh, my soldier deck still defends itself against anything from Innistrad.

The new Sorin looks cool btw, and I love some of the new zombie cards as well.

About 1 turn kill decks, even my "Myr rush deck, kekekekekeke" takes about a turn or two to get the party started, so control decks get a hella fun to remove my token pumpers/creators.
