So, it’s been such an embarrassingly long time since I’ve updated that I’m actually just going to throw out a list of what we’re currently running from New Phyrexia and Magic 2012, rather than a list of changes.
The big philosophical change since I’ve updated is that we aren’t supporting green aggro anymore, which I’ve been very happy with. The ramp cards we have instead are a bigger draw to draft green, in my opinion, and our green decks have been better and more frequent.
From NPH, Blade Splicer and Birthing Pod are on a trial basis, but everything else is pretty solid.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite
Sheoldred, Whispering One
Sword of War and Peace
Urabrask, the Hidden
From M12, the Mages are still kind of questionable, and I haven’t yet been really impressed with Chandra. Everything else is safe.
Chandra, the Firebrand
Garruk, Primal Hunter
Jace, Memory Adept
In the bragging sector, we came home with some sweet stuff from the GP:
I’m really excited about the Demonic Tutor in particular – so pretty!
We got to cube a bit at the GP as well, first with Alex Bertoncini’s combo cube (“no spot removal and no counters- whatever you do is going to happen”) and then with Tim Pskowski’s cube.
Finally, on the subject of Innistrad, Diregraf Ghoul is an easy include if you support aggro in black, and I think Spectral Rider (WW, 2/2 Intimidate) will make it as well.
