Innistrad Favorites:


5. Infernal Plunge - ‘free’ mana in red, probably a mistake
4. Garruk Relentless - just a hunch, five abilities still feels like too much.
3. Forbidden Alchemy - future cornerstone of std control deck
2. Reckless Waif//Merciless Predator - aka Reckless Nacatl
1. New Enemy Dual Lands - what can I say, I love lands.


5. Civilized Scholar//Homicidal Brute: Loot and pillage.

4. Delver of Secrets // Insectile Aberration: Dracula, Frankenstein, Jekyll & Hyde, fair enough. Successfully getting ‘The Fly’ as well? That’s impressive.
3. Heartless Summoning: Cheap cost reducers are nicely breakable.
2. Charmbreaker Devils: Devil tribal never had it so good.
1. Creeping Renaissance: If only to break it with the ‘Tribal’ type. Restock only got two cards back once for the same cost.


5. New Dual Lands - Yay. Lands!
4. Liliana of the Veil - it’s 3 mana and it’s pretty awesome and it’ll see play.
3. Devil’s Play
2. Stensia Bloodhall.
1. Past in Flames - Just pure amazing. A new way to have strong end game potential.

1aFlavor. Moonmist
264. Think Twice

Phantom Events max players goes up to 512. No word on whether or not program expands.

Not having listened yet I by Paul Leicht at Tue, 09/20/2011 - 05:09

Not having listened yet I will venture my list anyway:

5. The mike flores pick seems right on: Falkenrath Marauders. 4. Red ritual???? Ok :D 3. Bloodline Keeper/flip! 2. Essense of the Wild (completely useless for regular play but wow :D Avatars Redux?) 1. Divine Reckoning! Take that Day of Judgment! :D OK so it isn't quite the same thing but still I love this card. There are a ton more that tickle my fancy in one way or another.

My top 5 by apaulogy at Tue, 09/20/2011 - 11:58

Again, awesome show guys.

5. Altar's Reap- card draw, instant, gain value from Morbid or "die" abilities....
4. Snapcaster Mage- I mean, the implications....Maybe not awesome in standard (yet), but great in eternal formats
3. Dual Lands- yay.
2. Dissipate- Am I the only one who noticed how terrible Mana Leak is? This is a welcomed reprint, IMO.
1. Brimstone Volley...deal 3 or 5 if you are morbid... So Artillerize and this are in the same format?

Looks like you guys got another fan, whether you like it or not :P.

More fans is always a good thing. Glad you are enjoying the show.

Snapcaster Mage is growing on me the more that I think about him, esp with the new modern bannings. I'm already dreaming of gifts ungiven for mage, noxious revival, and any 2 cards :D

Im excited by the reprint by Paul Leicht at Tue, 09/20/2011 - 14:41

Back to the drawing board , I am afraid.

I am thinking about Hive Mind and some UB Teachings or Reanimator deck...

Test sometime, gamemaster Keya?

The reason I like Civilized by smack8001 at Wed, 09/21/2011 - 10:17

The reason I like Civilized Scholar/Homicidal Brute is because it fits into the looter/Goryo's Vengeance decks so well. It loots, you discard emrakul and reanimate him, then the brute provides the extra 5 damage that Emrakul can't.
