As for right now, I'm brushing up on new cards for the Mirrodin Besieged launch next week. I didn't get a chance to go the pre-release due to lack of cash, but I got paid in time to make the launch. The last launch I went to I placed first with an undefeated record, so I can't slack off when I've got an image to uphold (really M11 was just overly nice to me luck-wise, but that's not the point). The first thing I've got to decide is, mirran or phyrexian. Maybe I should make a pro's and (other pro's?) list to help me decide:
- Sweet infect cards
- Awesome release card
- Best limited Zenith (black one obviously)
- Living weapons
- Er... people won't think you're following the crowd by picking Phyrexian?
Ok so it's obviously a little more involved than that, but it's clear i've made my decision. I like to win, so I'll be fighting for the phyrexians. Now that that's decided, i'm off to study the cards (all the cards, I have to know what my opponent's are playing too), and hopefully I can catch a bit of luck tomorrow. I'll be back then to post my results (and hopefully do a bit more of an involved blog post, this is my first one in a long time after all. I'll get better I swear!)
