Topi’s Daily Card #1183:  Tower of the Magistrate

This is by far one of my favorite utility lands, hands down.  It’s effects may not seem too good at first, but there are tons of cool things you can do with this land.  Obviously it’s good against artifact decks, allowing you to block or attack unhindered.  But where it shines is just being able to say ‘no’ to equipment.  An opponent wants to equip their boots to a specific creature?  Tap this land and say no.  A creature without shroud/hexproof is all suited up?  Target them and all the equipments fall off.  Anything that has to do with artifacts this land could mess up, which means you’re guaranteed to have a target in nearly every deck.  If I can’t decide what utility lands to put in a deck, there’s a safe bet that this one is a strong contender.

Magic: the Gathering - Rivals of Ixalan Brazil

Not certain how this mis-step happened, but it appears like we have two new Rivals of Ixalan cards spoiled from the WotC Brazil social coordinator on Twitter.  Here are the UNOFFICIAL translations -

The Immortal Sun, 6
Legendary Artifact, Mythic Rare
Players can’t activate loyalty abilities of planeswalkers.
At the beginning of your draw step, draw an additional card.
Spells you cast cost 1 (colourless) less to cast.
Creatures you control get +1/+1.

Tetzimoc, Death Incarnate, 4BB
Legendary Creature - Dinosaur Avatar, Rare
Deathtouch
B, Reveal Tetzimoc from your hand: Put a prey counter on target creature. Only activate this ability during your turn.
When Tetzimoc enters the battlefield destroy each creature with a prey counter on it.
6/6

Unstable Prep
  • A selection of banned/restricted cards
  • lots of D6 (preferably in a wide variety of colors)
  • Legions booster packs (maybe some RoE packs if I really wanna spend even more money)
  • Basic lands of each type featuring a clearly visible tree (and maybe a Forest without any visible trees)

I’ll add to this as they show more stuff. This stuff is also gonna go right in with my cube. Can anyone think of something I missed?

Magic: the Gathering - X Marks the Spot

I can’t wait for the full spoilers for Unstable to come out! I just want to preorder the whole set as soon as possible! So far most cards hover between 10 cents & 25 cents, with the good rares at 50 cents and the good mythics at 1$; hopefully I can get the whole thing for around 100$!! I’m so excited!!!
