Trip Report: Scars of Mirrodin Midnight Release

So I met up with my fellow neckbeard gentleman at around 12:00AM EST to play some Magic: The Gathering and bought my entry for the 6 packs of Scars of Mirrodin. Of my six packs, two held mythic rares which turned out to be bombs.

I won some booster packs and in all, had 4 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw. I owe my wins to the following cardboard...

For a total of 5 mana, it mills the opponent for 10 cards... My first round had a win by mill because of this card and a 3/3 White flying creature. Not only does it mill for 10, it's also protection from Green / Blue, adds a 2/2 Wolf T-Shirt into play but it also adds +2/+2 to the creature it is equipped to.

So check it, if you ever see this card in a draft or in sealed... take it. I can say that wins were had from this card.

Next is the promotional card. Couldn't play with it, but here's what you get from WotC.


Finally, this, paired with the earlier Sword of Body and Mind is lethal. Absolutely lethal. I can see this being a very good Planeswalker along with Koth.


So tell me fellow neckbeards... how was your FNM draft? Scars Pre-release?
Share what decks you ran.

  3. I've still yet to actually play magic; all of my friends do and all have encouraged me to try, but it just hasn't happened yet.

    Followed, in the hopes that it may encourage me to try in the future.

  10. Holy... Sword of Body and Mind is simply insane. A friend of mine runs a milling deck and this would be a wonderful addition to it!

    The Wurmcoil Engine is pretty awesome as well; the artwork is amazing on it.

  11. That sword is disgustingly overpowered for its mana cost. Five for ten-mill per attack? But alas, that's not the point of this post.

    I find your blog fun to read and very addicting, so I've decided to Follow you.

    I have a blog as well, which you can follow if you're interested. It's the life story of a badass, modern Pecos-Bill-type character told in daily vignettes. I'm looking for actual readers, rather than just clickers/supporters, so if anyone's interested, feel free to take a look. =)
