Rise of Esper?

I have a Esper deck, built on the intro pack Esper Artifice. This Shard is my favorite, interesting to play, but it seems that is far from competitive. It's a bit slow, with creatures which are easy to be killed and it requires a lot of counter strategy that can screw up the tournament play even more.

But, now three cards are changing my plans for investing in this kind of deck. So, I might be buying some new cards after all. Check them out below:

A life gain defender with 6 toughness plus flying? Oh my, this can be awesome.

Just imagine what could you possibly destroy with this on. And if you have enough mana, you can take two big beasts at once.My favorite. You can return anything you want, and put Sharuum The Hegemon into play, and there you are, return another artifact from your graveyard to play. Awesomeness.

The Dragon's Egg - My MTG Dream Bag

Power 9 Pro's new product, designed for passionate collectors and MTG players, the best way to store your card collection and carrying wherever you go. The Dragon's Egg was inspired and designed by a passionate Magic player, James DiPadua. Here's what he said:

The Dragon's Egg was designed because I got sick of using cardboard boxes to carry around my constructed decks. I've had a number of cards get bent, nicked and smudged because the storage and transportation options for my MTG decks were inadequate.

After looking for a solution, I didn't really see anything that excited me. In fact, I remember clearly thinking, "I can make something better than this." And so I did.

I'm so confident that the Dragon's Egg will be a better option for transporting and protecting your Type 1, Type 2, Extended and Block decks than cardboard boxes that I back the Dragon's Egg by a lifetime 100% money back guarantee. You can't even guarantee me that your Tarmagoyf, Mutavault or Figure of Destiny will be worth 100% it's current value next year, so that's a pretty freaking great deal!

I'm really excited to offer a more practical and exciting way for Magic players to enjoy their passion while protecting their investment at the same time. Enjoy!

It's awesome. Click here for more info.

Full Conflux Spoiler

Finally, all 145 cards included in Conflux are known to the public, published on MTG Salvation. I'm thinking about a Voracious Dragon / Banefire deck, but I'm afraid to think about the possible price of each card. I hope I'll get at least one on the pre-release event, because I do not intent to spend much money on this set.

To be honest, I don't think I ever saw a worse set in the last four years. This multicolor bullcrap is terrible and it's about to cool my passion for the game. I don't know about other people, but I don't like this five color mixture at all.

I'll post my ALA/CON deck ideas these days.

Nicol Bolas, Plainswalker

Here's the new Plainswalker. Actually, it's not that new, because Nicol Bolas, as a character is more than 10 years old and it was printed in Chronicles as a rare. Also, there was a re-print of the same Bolas in Time Spiral.

I'm not sure why they've decided to include an old character, but it's ok. It's one of the most popular characters that appears in Magic: The Gathering, so..

This whole Plainswalker thing scares me a lot. Does anyone thinks there are just too many Plainswalkers? It's just beats off the fun. Plainswalker decks are just too much.

Anyway, check out the brand new Nicol Bolas.

New (beta) Gatherer

There's a new Gatherer data-base on the official site. It looks cool, but I'll still be using

Check it out.

CONFLUX Visual Spoiler

Finally, the Conflux visual spoiler is out on the official Magic: The Gathering website. I was following the spoilers on MTG Salvation website from the first day they were published and I'm happy to finally see some complete cards.

Although, I already found my favorite Conflux cards, I'll try to pick few which are included in today's visual spoiler (because my cards aren't). Let's start with these five (randomly picked) cards.

Hellkite Hatchling. Attack of the Dragons, heh? I like this Devour 1 thing. Four mana. And let's say you devour a Mogg Fanatic and you already have a Hissing Iguanar. That's already two damage to target player.

Great Epser counter target spell card. Pretty good. Well, maybe if it was a common...

It would be perfect if it dealt damage equal to it's power or toughness. It's just to slow, but I think it's okay for draft. Anyway, I like the card art.

It's like a Wrath of God, but you keep your soldiers alive and kicking. I like it. It makes me wanna play a white deck.

The mana cost sounds scarry. Just like the things it does.

Draw step

Hi everybody!

I've been a Magic: The Gathering player for four years now, and I totally love the game, the art and everything involved. I've been through a small hiatus during the Time Spiral block and I started playing again when Lorwyn hit the standard.

I play Goblins since and they have been my favorite deck to play with. I'll post stuff related to Goblins in MTG, news in the game, cool decklists and everything else.

Over and out.
