Get Ready for Amonkhet Prerelease and Start Winning!! — April 23, 2017

Get Ready for Amonkhet Prerelease and Start Winning!!

Hi Magic Gamers,

It’s time of the year for Magic: The Gathering Prerelease event.

Amonkhet, Set 1 of 2 in the plane of Amonkhet, prerelease is on April 22nd and 23rd , 2017.    Enjoy your prerelease!

Here is a simple guide for you all who plan to attend AKH Prerelease:

 


This is Amonkhet prerelease pack:

amonkhet_prerleease.png

which contains 6 Amonkhet boosters, a randomized date-stamped premium promo card, a spin down life counter, and others.

Format: minimum 40-card sealed deck, constructed from the 6 boosters in the prerelease pack.


 

Amonkhet New Mechanics:

EMBALM:  When a creature card with embalm is in your graveyard, you can activate its embalm ability, by paying the embalm cost and exile the card. You do this any time you could cast a sorcery, meaning during your main phase when nothing else is happening. When the ability resolves, you create a token copy of the card.

EXERT:  There are Creatures with exert ability in which you can decide whether to exert a creature when you declare it as an attacker.  If you choose to have it exert, an ability will trigger and grant you some bonus. As a trade-off, the creature won’t untap during your next turn.

AFTERMATH: The return of split cards!  Basically, they are two cards in one.  One half can be casted normally, and the other half can only be casted when the card is in the graveyard.   Once that half resolves, the card is exiled.

Cycling: Card with cycling abilities let you discard a card with a mana cost to draw a card.

-1/-1 COUNTERS:  There are cards that put -1/-1 counter on creatures.

 

Enjoy Your Amonkhet Prerelease and Good luck!

Get Ready for Aether Revolt Prerelease and Start Winning!! — January 13, 2017

Get Ready for Aether Revolt Prerelease and Start Winning!!

Hi Magic Gamers,

It’s time of the year for Magic: The Gathering Prerelease event.

Aether Revolt, Set 2 of 2 in the Kaladesh (KLD) block, prerelease is on January 14th and 15th , 2017.    Enjoy your prerelease!

Here is a simple guide for you all who plan to attend KLD Prerelease:

 


This is Aether Revolt prerelease pack:

aether_revolt_prerelease

which contains 4 Aether Revolt and 2 Kaladesh boosters, a randomized date-stamped premium promo card, and a spin down life counter.  It also come with Renegade sticker (OMG?!?!).   Please, I prefer foil token.

Format: minimum 40-card sealed deck, constructed from the 6 boosters in the prerelease pack.


 

Aether Revolt New Mechanics:

Revolt: is a new ability word that appears in front of abilities that depend on a permanent you control leaving the battlefield.  For example, Airdrop Aeronauts has revolt ability.  Thus, if you sacrifice an artifact before you cast this card, you would gain 5 life.

Improvise:  You can use your artifacts to help cast the cards with improvise ability word, but, still need to pay for the colored mana portion of a mana cost of the cards.  For example, the cheapest mana cost of Herald of Anguish is BB, as the 5 generic mana can be paid by tapping the artifacts on your field.

Vehicles & Energy mechanics are still there.  🙂
