Go Go Power Plainswalkers.

July 11, 2011

So the weekend has come and gone from an amazing pre-release weekend. M12 is now offically 5 days away and standard will once again evolve.

So Lets take a look at the possibilities with the new Plainswalkers in 2012.

First on the block is Jace, Master Adept. from what I have seen and heard he isn’t the best plainswalker at the moment unless you are playing limited. However, if rumors are true and one can only hope that they are Innistrad will have a graveyard theme. and if that is the case playing blue/black whatever Innistrad can do will probably be the best thing to happen to the new Jace, sure he isn’t Jace 2.0 but who knows.

Is the new jace legacy playable? Honestly my opinion in this matter is pretty simple NO, not yet. being a 5 drop in legacy is pretty risky – even a 4 drop is pushing it, let alone a 5 unless it is force of will. and even though who pays mana for a force of will?

Moving on.

Chandra, Chandra, Chandra let us just for a moment take a look at her:

+1: Chandra, the Firebrand deals 1 damage to target creature or player.
-2: When you cast your next instant or sorcery spell this turn, copy that spell. You may choose new targets for the copy.
-6: Chandra, the Firebrand deals 6 damage to each of up to six target creatures and/or players.

Whoa what? she pings for one, she can copy and then rage out for 6 damage to 6 creatures or players?

Along with the inclusion of Grime Lavamancer who if you remember does the following: R, Tap, Exile two cards from your graveyard: Grim Lavamancer deals 2 damage to target creature or player. And Now add Koth who is also a 4 drop could we possibly see a huge evolutionary step of Red Deck Wins? I think we might.

Now here comes my favorite of the bunch: Garruk!!! I love green, so much it is just one of those great colours, and with the beat stick powers that the Garruk offers up I won’t be surprised in the least to see him being played heavly in a rock style control deck. hey remember that beast within you played on their land and gave them a 3/3 well guess what ill +1 Garruk and trade off with that beast if you try anything funny.

all in all the plainswalkers are good, sorin and gideon are what they are everyone knows them already, but be on the look out for the emergence of red soon, especially with lightening bolt being here until october, (thank god i hate that card)


On another note, I didn’t get a chance to play test monogreen control yet, so i will be tweaking it and giving you guys an update when ive played it out

have a good monday guys.
