So I’ve finally gave in and bought an intro deck for Magic the Gatherings new set, Magic Origins. I’ll admit I was curious about this set as it is based on the origin story of the Planeswalkers. The promotional material suggests that this set will give us some backstory- and if you ask anyone who knows me, I love backstory. Seriously, I can put up with broken game mechanics and in the case of video games, glitches and poor graphics for great world building, characters and plot. I would also like to take this moment to point out, I’m not the best or most competitive player. I tend to play only with friends and not at events, so don’t expect analysis of the cards in this set.
Anyways, digression aside, I purchased the Hunting Pack intro deck, mainly because it is green/black deck. I’m a big fan of green decks as it usually matches my play style of slowly building strength in a long game. However I don’t usually play black, so this could be an interesting experience and I can’t wait to see how these two colours complement each other. I haven’t had a chance to play the deck yet but on first glance it looks like an interesting and balanced deck. It’s also made up of mostly elves. Elves are one of my favourite fantasy races, along with dragons (wow, you guys are earning a lot about me in this post!) So overall this deck looks like it was a great purchase. There are a couple of cards I may change out but I’ll wait to see how the deck plays before making changes.
That’s about it for this post, I’ll keep you guys posted on how I do with this new deck!
