Well let’s take a look at what we get for our money. Let’s mention the obvious at first: we get the two Planeswalkers: Ajani Vengeant and Nicol Bolas with new artwork (they look sweet if you ask me). They aren’t really awesome mythics out in the real world, but for any EDH or casual players it’s awesome to get them. Well I guess Bolas has a good secondary market value but still.

Okay so what else? Let’s make a short list here.
What do I like from the Ajani list.

Creatures:
Wolly Thoctar – Modern likes it even if it is easy to get your hands on it.
Loxodon Hierarch – Great card? No. Do I like it? Yes.
Qasali Pridemage – Good card ZOO lovers.
Kird Ape – Not really used as much these days but still a sweet edition.
Wild Nacatl – You can bet your 50 cents that!… oh wait you can just buy this for 50cent. Awesome card none the less.

Other spells:
Searing Meditation – Wait wait wait wait, side this against rubin zoo? Sure get that punishing fire and I punish you for the same cost of that punishing fire. Haha. 3 mana for you, 2 for me. I guess Pridemage deals with it easily, but hey, may be worth it.
Lightning Helix – Love it.

Well that wasn’t a lot. Should I mention Titanic Ultimatum? But I don’t like that that card, shush Nurglings. Love you all. Okay so over to the Bolas deck, let’s see what we find.

Creatures:
Dimir Cutpurse – Really like the guy, not a great card but I may just put it in an EDH deck for fun.
Blazing Specter – Just read what I wrote about Dimir Cutpurse.

Other Spells:
Undermine / Counterquall – Just love the feel of these counter spells.

Erm well, you get Bolas right? 😀 Remember that these are the cards I’m excited about, not what’s good or great or expensive. But for me these decks aren’t worth it, the Alara cards that are good in the list I already plenty of. Kind of sad.

Oh also, the new artworks:

Until next time, take care Nurgle fans.
Cya soon!
