So last week I introduced you guys to my variant of Caw-Blade (A concoction I dreamed up along with my colleagues Scourge and Jeff Weeks), which you can find HERE if you need a refresher. This week I’m going to talk in a little more detail about the actual matches I played.

Dark Ascension Pre…aw, hell. The one you’ve been waiting for.

This is it!  The one you’ve been waiting for!  No sense putting it off any longer, so I’ll just go through the cards I think will make a difference in all formats.  Obviously, there will be cards I don’t mention, but I’m pretty sure you’ll be able to judge for yourself (after reading my other reviews…YOU DID READ THEM, RIGHT?) which are good and which are not.  Let’s begin!

Dark Ascension Preview Part Three: Insert Witty Title Here

The long wait is over!  Sweeeeeeet.  This is the first of several articles I’m going to put up, giving my opinions on the new set: Dark Ascension!  You should definitely pay close attention to what I have to say, ‘specially if you’re relatively new to the game.  I may indeed drop some pointers for both limited and constructed play.
So, first and foremost, let’s start of with everyone’s favorite color (or at least the one with, in my honest opinion, the most popularity): White.

Done yet?  Alright, I’ll give another second.
