Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
PICS ARE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have the full
Rare list posted on some eBay auctions.

the picture of each card. The set is REALLY
different, and will bring a huge change to the way
we play...you have to see the new
With so many of the
Mirrodin set being artifacts, artifact destruction
suddenly becomes very important. Scott has
already been scoping out a few combos from
Mirrodin, and it's pretty crazy...most involve
artifacts. So somehow, some way, you better
have artifact destruction at the ready.
Glissa can destroy artifacts over and over if she
survives, giving you card advantage in your deck.
And she's not a horrible P/T for the casting cost
to boot. We'll have to see what constructed
decks find her worthy coming up soon.
In limited, you
PLAY HER. Recurring artifact removal is way
too good to pass up in this environment, and she's
worth every mana. There are some decent ways
to use that extra mana in this set, including
casting items and re-equipping creatures, etc., so
you'll probably find a way around her drawback.
Grren is really good
at artifact destruction, or at least they want
us to think the color wheel says so. So one of
the storyline characters gets a repeatable
ability to dewstroy artifacts. This will be
really big, I think, for the block constructed
format at least, and you'll probably see this in
type 2 also. You just have to find a mana sink
for your mana, which either means to cast a
spell (or three), or have a permanent that can
In limited, this is
even better, as fully half the set is artifacts.
First pick material.
Glissa Sunseeker is
solid but overpriced for the ability. Sure 4 mana
for a 3/2 first strike creature isn't so bad and
the ability to destroy articfacts is great but I
would rather have real fat for 4 mana and use a
cheaper creature for artifact removal.
Constructed - Solid
but 4 mana is rough - 2.85
Limited - First
Strike helps rule the ground game but artifacts
are less of an issue- 2.95
