Überraschungsei mit Gimmicks


Dass es nun zu einem Core Set auch Event Decks geben soll, hatte uns bereits verwundert, als die ersten Bilder bekannt wurden. Heute hat nun WotC die restlichen Infos nachgeliefert:
Die Decks werden am 12. August in den Sprachen Deutsch, Englisch, Italienisch, Französisch und Japanisch erscheinen und entgegen früherer Vermutungen Illusionary Might und Vampire Onslaught heißen.
Dabei ist Letzteres der Grundstock zu dem immer wiedermal im Standard erfolgreichen Vampire-Deck, während Ersteres ein unfokussierter Haufen ist, der die Möglichkeiten einzelner starker Karten nicht ausschöpft. Aber ob nun die Daseinsberechtigung dieser Decks darin besteht, dass man sie erst pimpen oder direkt damit ein FNM gewinnen können soll... spielen kann man damit so oder so - im Standard allerdings nur noch zwei Monate lang!

Hier die Highlights aka Rares der beiden Decks:

Illusionary MightVampire Onslaught
1x Glacial Fortress
2x Grand Architect
1x Lord of the Unreal
1x Phantasmal Image
1x Precursor Golem
1x Steel Hellkite
1x Verdant Catacombs
2x Bloodghast
1x Kalastria Highborn
2x Blade of the Bloodchief
4x Dismember
1x Mimic Vat

Priceless


Seit nunmehr acht Jahren ist es Tradition, dass bei der Vintage Championship, das im Rahmen der Gen Con abgehalten wird, der erster Preis eine übergroße Power Nine-Karte mit alternativem Bild ist. Und in diesem Jahr wird es Time Walk sein:


Und zum ersten Mal wird es dieses Jahr auch eine solche übergroße Karte beim Legacy Championship zu gewinnen geben. Den Anfang macht Force of Will:


Tja, Totgesagte leben länger. (NSFW)

Der Aufstieg der Dunkelheit


Irgendeine solche Blödsinnigkeit wird ganz bestimmt aus Dark Ascension gemacht werden. The Ascension ist übrigens der feststehende Begriff für die Himmelfahrt Christi, zumindest im englischen Sprachraum; aber in diesem Zusammenhang wird darauf wohl niemand anspielen (wollen).

Warum ich das aber erzähle? - Nun, gestern hatte ich ja bereits erwähnt, dass die zweite Edition des Innistrad-Blocks Dark Ascension heißen soll. Heute hat nun WotC das Set auf ihrer Homepage vorgestellt:


Tja, es hat den Anschein als wäre Dark Ascension für Sorin das, was Innistrad für Liliana ist...


Dagegen ist mir völlig schleierhaft, was das Dark Ascension-Logo darstellen soll:
Tja, wenn ich den christlichen Kontext nicht bereits ausgeschlossen hätte, würde ich ja behaupten, dass es ein Wappen mit zwei Beffchen sei...

Schon lange finde ich es schade, dass du deinen Projekten goyf und Couchmagic so wenig Liebe angedeihen lässt. Der Schritt, den goyf nun ganz zu beenden, ist nachvollziehbar, aber auch aus meiner Sicht bedauerlich. Couchmagic wird vermutlich bald folgen...

17.10.2019 14:24 | Eddos*

Sehr schade, den Newsfeed habe ich bis vor 3 Tagen täglich genutzt. Vielleicht kannst du mir ein ähnliches Angebot nennen?
Vielen Dank für dass, was du insgesamt mit dem goyf geleistet hast.es war damals nach germagic (R.I.P.)

Sicher, aber dann wäre es keine neue Fähigkeit bzw. kein neues Keyword...

Hätte es dagegen spannend gefunden, wenn WotC eine Kreatur mit Megamorph zusätzlich auch mit Morph ausgestattet hätten, damit man eine situative Wahl treffen könnte. Ich hoffe, dass WotC auch auf diese Idee gekommen ...

04.03.2015 11:27 | zwork

Hätte man Megamorph nicht als "whenever it's turned face up for it's Morph cost put a +1/+1 counter on it" lösen können?
Hätte weniger von Power Ranger-Feeling. Ich finds dämlich so wie es ist.

Danke für den Hinweis! Ich hatte mich zwar kurz gewundert, aber im Eifer die Nachricht fertig zu kriegen habe ich auch nicht weiter darüber nachgedacht...

Gerade mit dem Shop-Besitzer geschrieben:

26.03.15 - Sealed - Speyer

stimmt nicht (mehr).

Es soll der 29.03. werden (was auch von WotC bestätigt wurde) - was auch mehr Sinn macht, da am Wochenende.

Bitte ändern ;)
