The MetaPod – XY: BREAKthrough set review w/ WanderingVenser

Hello Nurglings!

Welcome to the first official blog post where I announce the fact that our “Pokémon talk” recordings shall now be called:

The Metapod Log

I’m aware that this recording is VEEERY long, but we talked about every single card and we may have spent a bit to much talking about the early bad cards just to rush through them towards the end.

BUT, still had a great and fun time reviewing this card for card, and I hope you will enjoy it as well.

Thanks for watching/listening!

Battlefleet Gothic coming to PC

It’s finally happening!
Empire: Total War was never a big hit out there in the world, but I’ve always wanted it becuase of the awesome sea battles. Ever since I started playing video games I’ve always been facinated with armadas or big ships fighting it out. I’m not sure where this facination comes from but I just love to see a crew work together to fight against another crew. Positioning, team work, speed and heading always being key to victory.

When I was younger of course I found myself facinated with the game: Battlefleet Gothic. It took the armadas up to space and it looked marvelous. As I was also a huge fan of miniature games back then of course this game spoke to me. But I never got a chance to try it, it was hard to find miniatures and boxes for it, nobody really played it, it was just something that I hade a chance to read about in magazines.

But here it is, my chance to finally fight space battles in the Warhammer 40k universe. From what I’ve gathered from the very lacking information you will be able to play Imperial, Orc, Chaos and Eldar fleets and your crew will level up inbetween missions and/or engagmenets.

The game will be created by Tindalos Interactive. Let’s hope this game WONT be canceled…

New Hearthstone Spoiler – Spider Egg ! ?

Hello Nurglings!

Just as I mention a Hearthstone ”spoiler”, it seems that another one just arrived on their social media pages! This time it’s a spider egg! Turn the picture over and you can see that there’s a spider hanging upside down inside of it. Sweet!

Card:

Bk30RJXCAAAOL8Y

So here is my guess on the card effects:

Name and cost of some sort
0/4
Taunt
Deathrattle: Summon a 4/5 spider

Name and some other fine cost
0/4
Taunt
Everytime cardname is damaged, summon a 2/2 spider.

So what’s your guess for this beautful spider card? Leave a comment below with your guess!

Until next time Nurglings, take care.

Journey Into Nyx – Spoiler – Ajani, Mentor of Heroes

Hello Nurglings!

The spoiler season for the next Magic The Gathering set is upon us, and as a old card gamer I need to look at every single card released every single day and say: BU or YAY! And even tho I’m not a huge fan of the current standard/type 2 format in MTG, I still await the moment when the change comes and stuff looks more fun and appealing. Cause appeal is truly everything when I play card games (I still miss the Zendikar vampires btw).

So on to the card!

MTG Spoiler - Planeswalker - Ajani Mentor of Heroes

Yes a new Ajani and he is now a dual colored card, and not surprisingly: Green/White. Even if it kinda makes me sad that Elspeth didn’t get her chance in the G/W zone it makes sense that it happened to Ajani instead. He’s a cat and he’s mean, a green white machine… Enough of that and on to the card with a mana cost of … 5! So okay let’s not panic, as long as he has some controlish elements to him he should be fine as a 5 cost planeswalker.

[+ 1] Distribute three +1/+1 counters among one, two, or three target creatures you control
The sad part about his first ability is that it’s one of those that demands that you have creatures out already. I’m a bigger fan of creating small creatures to defend himself with. Putting out three counters every turn is not bad, but I bet you will mostly use him for his second ability which is…

[+1] Look at the top four cards of your library. You may reveal an Aura, creature, or planeswalker card from among them and put that card into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order.
So this is a planeswalker that not only draws you a card, but lets you look at the top 4 cards to find it. Tho you are limited to Enchantments, Creatures and Planeswalkers I don’t think this is a huge setback. If you play him you clearly create a deck that has a good amount of targets for this ability, and even his first ability is a sign that you want to have some creature focus.

[-8] You gain 100 life.
You gain 100 life. So, as long as you’re not playing against infect in some other format or dare I say it: The Maze! Not a great ability not a horrible ability, but 100 life will surley give you time to stabalize or make your opponent deck-out before the game is over. Or you know you can just punch him in the face while you take some damage (not sure if 100 is alot in the current format tho).

Overall I think Mr ajani will see some play like almost all Planeswalker… except for that one, you know, the 2 mana evil devil guy. His + abilities are clearly formed out for the green/white with enchantments and creatures to control the board. Question is wouldn’t you rather have an elspeth on the field turn five?

So what do you think about this lovley new form of our cat lord Ajani? Good, bad or ugly?
Leave a comment and let me know!

Until next time Nurglings, take care.

MTG – M14 – Top 3 Spoiled cards [So far]

Hello Nurglings!

So there are several M14 spoilers out already (If you wan’t to believe mtgsalvation.com 158 cards), but there is a good amount of time until the set is actually released. In the meantime I thought I would share with you, my top 3 spoiled cards. These are the cards that I think will have the most effect on the meta to come when the Innistrad block rotates out of the Standard.

In no particular order:

Archangel of Thune
M14 - Spoiler - Archangel of Thune

The one big reason I believe in this card is because will want to play it, in control like decks, it gives you life, it grows bigger and it aids your other creatures (if any). I’m never a sucker for big white cards, being a weenie player myself, but this angel I like.

Liliana’s Reaver
M14 - Spoiler - Liliana's Reaver
Once again, if blue/black control or mono black control becomes a thing, guess who will be a key card as it stands now? THIS GUY. I can only really say that he’s like a worse version of Grave Titan, but maybe that’s good enough, it creates zombies and it makes your opponent discard cards. Both are great effects for more controlish decks.

Shadowborn Demon
M14 - Spoiler - Shadowborn Demon
