MTG – M14 – Top 10 cards! – Top 5 of the list

Hello Nurglings!

It’s time once again to look at some M14 cards! Today we’re moving on to my top five cards from the set. I guess today we should just jump right on to it.

For the bottom five cards, you can check them out here: https://nurgleprobe.wordpress.com/2013/07/08/mtg-m14-top-10-cards-bottom-5/

MTG - M14 - Top 10 - 51
MTG - M14 - Top 10 - 52
MTG - M14 - Top 10 - 53
MTG - M14 - Top 10 - 54
MTG - M14 - Top 10 - 55
5. The Hate Cycle
I’m sorry to say… but this means we actually have a top 10 top 5 top thing… The reason they all share this spot is because it’s so very dependent on the format to come. Which decks will be popular decides which of these creatures will actually be worth having in your deck and/or sideboard.

MTG - M14 - Top 10 - 4
4. Kalonian Hydra
Okay so for once a big green mythic creature is actually looking pretty good! For one it’s not as expensive as the big green usually are, and this one can actually win with just two attacks. Not only will this see play in limited and you will be very happy when you get to play it there. You will also see this card in standard for sure. Thragtusk is now laving the game and giving trading out for his more aggressive friend. Oh and remember, if you give this thing haste. WHAMBAM

MTG - M14 - Top 10 - 3
3. Liliana’s Reaver
Okay so I will tell you the truth right now, even tho this is my personal top 10 list. This card is actually my one favorite card in the set. This guy just reeks of value, one single hit from this creature is worth so much. Four less life for your opponent. One less card for your opponent. One extra creature for you. So much happens when this card hits, and I truly believe that this card will have a huge place in standard. I call this: the-mini-grave-titan. Even if your opponent decides to block this guy, he got Deathtouch and will clear that creature right out! I’m just happy they did not reprint White Knight in this set…

MTG - M14 - Top 10 - 2
2. Archangel of Thune
The first time I read on this card, and probably for plenty of you out there. You read it as a cute little trick, when you gain life it grows. Then you realize that: oh everything grows! I’m not even sure how much that will matter when it all comes around, but I bet it will at times (just like any ability really). So I’m not all excited about this card, but I’m sure it will see some play. It’s a big flying lifelink angel after all.

MTG - M14 - Top 10 - 1
1. Strionic Resonator
Yea this is on here, yea it’s on the first spot. Why? Well it’s artifact and ability that we haven’t seen before (or am I wrong?). And I just see this card doing plenty of broken things. I’m even looking at my favorite card from the set: Liliana’s Reaver, get that trigger twice for each attack and that is one bad ass value machine. And that’s just one of MANY tricks out there. Start looking at cards and their triggered abilities and I bet you can find some awesome things to double-trigger. (Thank goodness Thragtusk is gone right?)

Okay, that was it for this time, I hope you enjoyed the list and as always…
Until next time Nurglings, take care.

MTG - Trading post not in the list

MTG – M14 – Top 10 cards! – Bottom 5

Hello Nurglings!

(If you’re only interested in the TOP 5 it’s right here: https://nurgleprobe.wordpress.com/2013/07/09/mtg-m14-top-10-cards-top-5-of-the-list/ ]

It’s time to make one of the hardest top 10 lists in a long time. Cause people seem to be complaining ALOT about M14 at the moment. Saying that the power level is over all low, BUT, I’d say that there are plenty of playable cards in this set. People always seem to be expecting a power creep and want to see better, bigger, more useful, awesome spells. That’s not what Standard is about people. It’s about creating a new type of environment with new types of cards and letting new decks emerge.

And I’m telling you there are plenty of playable cards, if we were to make a “These cards are playable list” I do believe people would be happy to notice that there’s plenty of that around.
But nope…

So this is my top 10 cards from M14! I rate from the heart and not from my brain and I most often look at cards for a standard playability, not eternal formats and so on (even tho that may happen with some cards just because I’m to excited… okay?). So let’s move on the bottom 5 of this list. The top 5 will be posted later!

MTG - M14 - Top 10 - 10
10. Dark Prophecy
Some may argue that this card should not even be on this list, and I… agree! The true reason this card is here is because I want to see it. I want to see players use this card, try and build around it, do their Mono Block Control decks and try and win FNM’s. It’s the kind of plan that will work great when it does work and make you cry when it doesn’t. And hell… maybe I want my goat tokens to draw me cards when I block with them or sacrifice them to Trading Post.

MTG - M14 - Top 10 - 9
9. Ring of Three Wishes
Okay you’re laughing but I believe this card will do a lot. I’m going to say it once again but I’m looking at you Trading Post and you will be resetting this card for me. The thing that makes this card awesome, is the fact that is a instant search effect. Yes you have to cast it once, but once it’s out, the searching is awesome. In the late game you can even search for proper instants to respond to your opponents cards.

MTG - M14 - Top 10 - 8
8. Shadowborn Demon
I love black cards, okay? Okay. But really if Mono Black becomes a thing in the next format or if black will be played plenty at all. I do believe that this card will find a place. It’s a strong body for a relatively low cost AND it actually kills something (hopefully) when it enters the battlefield. But just as most demons that are released that seem powerful, they always end up not being the powerhouse they seem to be. So we will just have to wait and see.

MTG - M14 - Top 10 - 7
7. Ogre Battledriver
So this card can work for you in two different ways. One, it gives all your small creatures and token creatures a chance to be very aggressive and awesome. Secondly, it also gives ALL creatures haste, which means that you can use important tap abilities the moment you play them. I see this card winning games all over the place in the future, and I will rage every time it happens and be mad about “fast-creature heavy-decks”. I’m not liking the aggressive decks in the format right now and I sure will not like the ones to come. BUT to all of you that will use him for combos and interesting interactions: I salute you!

MTG - M14 - Top 10 - 6
6. Grim Return
This had two different spots on my list, either it’s down here on the sixth spot or I wanted it as number one. But it’s a hard card to valuate when you’re not really sure what will be played. It’s not only good if you’re playing creatures that can use it to great effect, it’s also great when you’re facing a opponent with plenty of “ETB” – triggers. It will be interesting to see where this card will fit in.

So these are my bottom 5 cards! Next we will check out the top 5. Excited? Oooh just you wait. 🙂
Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!

M14 – New Planeswalker spoiler – Chandra, Pyromaster

Hello Nurglings!

So it’s time once again to celebrate the awesome red Planeswalker Chandra! Just like every other time she’s been released with a new version, she shines! She wins games in every format, she kicks ass in standard and is on the brink of getting banned and now… now…. wait… no that’s Jace. So here is the new Chandra. Enjoy.

M14 - Spoiler - Chandra, Pyrmoaster

Okay so she can finally deal damage to both players and creatures in a … good… way. Okay she just pings for 1 damage, but at least she also have a ”no more block for you” effect. Her 0 effect is actually fine if you look at it as a +1 card effect. You gain a extra card to play for the turn and if you play a aggressive deck that’s not horrible. Okay so let’s just talk about this ultimate for a second, is it good or isn’t it? I’m not sure yet. Of course copying a spell 3 times is great if you hit the right spell. Take 3 extra turns, burn your opponent (or his creatures) for 9 and so on.

In the end, I’m just not sure this was the Chandra we wanted. But I’m not sure… really.

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!

Hello Nurglings!

So we got the two release event promos in our hands! Okay no I don’t actually have them in my hands but I have pics of them that I can share! So first one is a card that we’ve already seen in the set and I’m not really … excited about it, but who knows. Maybe it’s okay somewhere? In… draft I guess.

MTG – Modern Masters Spoiler – OH EM GE!

Hello Nurglings!

It’s upon us, a new era of awesome artwork and reprints, a time for money being spent and hearts broken when opening the wrong mythic cards. A time for arguing about prices and expensive drafting. Yes…. Modern Master spoiler season… is here!

And O M G did they start of with something big? I mean we already go Goyf confirmed and that was like a huge deal already, so how could they match this? Well there is a certain 2/1 creature that likes to be in decks together with the Goyf, I hear they even sit down and take a few drinks at a Pub in Innistrad once in awhile. That’s correct, it is….! No wait let’s take a look at the artwork first.

Modern Masters - Artwork - Dark Confidant

OH EM GE
Is that one awesome piece of art or what? I’m so freaking excited to tell you that this artwork is fitted on to a awesome card as well. Here it comes…

Until next time Nurglings, take care.

Return to Ravnica – 200 Return to Ravnica cards – spoilers just for you!

Hello Nurglings!

Okay, so someone out there got their hands on PLENTY of Return to Ravnica cards, and he shared images of them with the world (very nice of him). Right now, in this post, I will just make one HUUUUUUGE list of cards, nothing fun or special. Later on, I will be looking at what the different Guilds can do for you at the pre-release, and of-course do my top 5 cards (with a twist this time around).

But now, the cards!

(Observe, that several of these had been revealed earlier).
