Crack a pack MTG Khans of Tarkir with Bruce (5th)

Crack a pack MTG Khans of Tarkir with Bruce (5th)

 By Bruce Gray – Casual Encounters

            I’m trying to get things back in order and get back into a routine of writing for you guys.  It’s been a while since I’ve sat down and done much in the way of writing, but I have been tinkering with some decks some more and have some ideas that I am prepared to share with you guys, however not today.  Today I’m going to bust open another pack of Khans and see what we get because this weekend I’m actually going to get a chance to draft some of this stuff.  I’m pretty excited and hope that my preparation (such as writing here on Three Kings Loot) and watching a number of other guys stream their draft videos will help me to a decent record in my upcoming events.  Let’s open up our pack and see what we find.

 

Rare

 

 

Uncommon

 

 

Common

 

 

Well, this pack has a number of solid commons, a high profile Rare, and bunch of lousy uncommons so it makes for a number of interesting selections. Let’s start with the Rare. Crater’s Claws is a pretty awesome ‘Fireball’ that is just really versatile.  It’s even better if you can trip the Ferocious trigger on this little treat that makes this a shock at worst, and just insane from there on.  Seeing as this can serve as removal if you need it, or as a form of inevitability to just burn out an opponent to the ‘dome’ this makes for a pretty excellent spell to pick and one that your opponent is unlikely to play around or expect.  This is a nice spell and will be a high priority in this pack for me.

 

Seek the Horizon and Goblinslide are spells that I don’t much care for.  Seek the Horizon is a pretty marginal ramp spell that can be useful if you need the fixing, but it eats up a slot at 3 mana on your curve.  You know what else takes 3 mana on your curve?  Only every Morph in the format is what.  You would rather be playing a Morph at 3 mana and not durdling for more land.  So, Seek the Horizon is likely to be cut in favor of creatures and spells that have more impact.  Goblinslide takes a fair amount of set up and then you STILL need to pay for it.  I can imagine a Jeskai sort of deck with lots of non-creature spells that would be interested in this, but honestly, if you WANT to run this card it is because you want the comedic value of trying to bury your opponent under a pile of Goblins. However, I am generally not that motivated by this one either because I would rather be doing some other things with my mana.

 

Watcher of the Roost is the other uncommon in this pack and I’m pretty okay with it, but I would not be taking this early.  Sure, it comes down as a Morph and can flip essentially for free if you reveal a White spell, gives you two life and even has flying.  These are all relevant things to do.  However, a 2/1 with Flying is…how to put this…slightly disappointing.  I will happily play this but I won’t be taking it early because I maintain that there are better things and select.

 

Moving on the commons there are some very reasonable spells and creatures to weigh.  The first one that gets my attention is Alabaster Kirin.  It’s a 2/3 with flying and vigilance which makes it a pretty solid attacker that can also play defence.  The 3 toughness makes it a very reliable blocker to handle all those Mardu aggro creatures or Warrior tokens. It isn’t flashy but very effective.  It is also nice because it dodges stuff like Suspension Field and Smite the Monstrous making it a surprisingly difficult to creature to handle.

 

Abomination of Gudul is another very solid Morph and among the best of the Gold common cycle of Morphs because it packs flying and lets you ‘Loot” once you get through for damage.  It dodges Smite the Monstrous which is also a thing, but sadly still gets caught by Suspension Field.  I like this one too, but it falls behind the Kirin for me because the mana requirements are pretty tough to meet.

 

Mystic of the Hidden Way is another very reliable Morph that provides good inevitability because you can’t just block it.  It’s a very solid, Morphs for cheap and is just a stud to wreck an opponent.  The part I like best about this card is that it isn’t as broken as Invisible Stalker was, but it is still a tricky creature to contain because of the evasion it has.  It’s a pretty solid mid-round pick up.

 

Mardu Hateblade is a solid 1 drop that can pack deathtouch.  If you are Abzan, or Mardu, or even the Warrior deck you want this guy because he is just a reliable creature that is major deterrent to your opponent because nobody wants to have the feel bad of having your better creature die on a 1/1 deathtoucher.  He’s a nice pickup, but Ruthless Ripper and Heir of the Wilds are better choices because you don’t have to activate the deathtouch ability.  Sadly, they are both uncommons and you are far more likely to find this guy in your pack than either of those.

 

Kin-tree Warden is yet another solid Morph that is a resilient defender that helps a Abzan deck get to the late game by regenerating for the ridiculously cheap cost of 2 mana.  Honestly, I miss the days of cheap regeneration cost and this guy is as close as you are likely to get.  I like  it and would be prepared to grab this as a mid round pick.

 

Rugged Highlands is pretty solid because the common Refuge lands are lynch pins in any multi colour deck and even  MORE crucial if you are rocking the 5 colour Morph deck with all the flashy spells you can grab.  It isn’t an exciting pick, but in this format, with a lack of obvious pick you grab a land and fix your mana to do something more powerful than you would otherwise do in a regular 2 colour deck.

 

Rotting Mastodon is a big dumb wall.  5 mana 2/8’s or huge to fight through and make solid ways to get your shields up while you Outlast your Abzan dudes.  I’m not a huge fan but can see the role this fatty can play.

 

Cancel is acceptable counter magic that is an insurance policy.  If you play Blue, you’ll want one of these just to be sure you can counter their biggest threat or that key piece they are looking for, but otherwise you don’t really want this too highly.

 

Barrage of  Boulders is not something I want. It doesn’t do enough for me and to trigger the “unable to block” feature means you need to have the Ferocious online.  I don’t know…I might give it a try this weekend to see if I can make this lead to a blow out, but I’m not big on this guy at this point.

 

Lastly, Summit Prowler is a just another dude in your deck. You aren’t excited about this guy at all.

 

Top 5 cards

 

  1. Crater’s Claws
  2. Alabaster Kirin
  3. Abomination of Gudul
  4. Rugged Highlands
  5. Mystic of the Hidden Way

 

First Pick

First pick is pretty easy this week. Crater’s Claws is most obviously the first pick in this pack but there are a number of very solid creatures and Morphs available.  The hope is that you can wheel at least one of them when the pack comes back, but the relative depth of this pack is pretty low meaning that you might get this pack back with nothing but junk left in it.  That’s a shame.  However, Crater’s Claws offers you, like I said, a bad shock at worst, or a way to close out a game out of nowhere.  The potential ceiling on this card is extremely high and you will absolutely grab this and make a point of playing it.  Not to mention, you will not be sad to draw this at just about any point in your match.  It may not be worth all that much on the secondary market, but the relative impact this can have in a game is huge and well worth the risk.

 

Thanks very for taking the time to join me this week as we go through yet another pack.  Things are looking pretty spicy and the format looks like a lot of fun with a ton of variance meaning that there are a number of successful archetypes and strategies to win with.  I hoping to be able to return next week, after my weekend of getting a number of drafts in, and be able to pass along a little more to you guys.

Thanks again and until next week may you open nothing but Mythic bombs.

Crack a pack MTG Khans of Tarkir with Bruce #13

The Khan is here! The Khan is here! Ok…maybe not quite…but that’s what I wanted to yell when I finally had a chance to crack some Khans and play with the new shiny toys.  Oh boy! Oh Boy! Oh Boy! I’ll spare you waxing poetically about Khans and let’s get to the good stuff.

 

Rare

 

 Uncommon

 

Common

 

 

So, my initial reaction to this pack is BOOOO…nothing crazy sweet in this pack, but it is pretty reasonable and offers some interesting choices for cards and a tough first pick.  Having not had a ton of limited experience with this set I’m working a bit in a vacuum, but I still have an idea about where I would go.

 

Let’s start with the rare and while the Deflecting Palm has proven to be very good in Jeskai tempo decks in Constructed, it is by no means a slam dunk for Draft.  It will very likely sit dead in your hand in many games, if you draw it, and even once you do it does little to impact the board.  Now, there will absolutely be situations where it is the best card you could have hoped to pull, but most of the time will be unless you’re on the Jeskai game plan and can trigger a load of Prowess triggers.  I won’t discount this card from this pack, but it isn’t an automatic slam first pick.

 

Amongst the uncommons we have a couple of really interesting cards.  Let’s start with the Charm because these are all very powerful.  All three modes of this are borderline bananas and the sheer versatility of this card makes me want to jump on board. Yes, it is 3 different mana symbols to cast it, but the options this can present are remarkable.  Also, with the wide range of mana fixing in this set like the common Refuge cycle, Banners, and Tri-lands (and forget about those fetches) you could easily pull this off.

 

Sultai Flayer is a 3/4 for 4 mana and is very versatile.  While the name claims it is a Sultai creature, it can also synergize very nicely with the Temur clan because of all the 4 toughness creatures it seems to have kicking around.  Gaining 4 life is pretty significant and big creatures tend to have a bit of a bulls-eye on them, so you may as well reap a little benefit from it.  The 3/4 for 4 mana is also pretty efficient and gives you something to exert some good board presence.

 

Goblinslide is not something I’m really keen on because I don’t really want to play that has no impact on the board when I cast it, needs other pieces to trigger it (like non-creature spells) and then STILL pay 1 mana to get the Goblin token.  It has its applications, but I’m not lining up for this one.

 

Shambling Attendants gets my attention because a 3/5 with Deathtouch is pretty solid.  The casting cost on this one is not ideal, and even with the Delve it makes for a tough sell, but something this large with deathtouch basically shuts down your opponent because they will be unlikely to be keen to trade with the attendant.  A little pricey, but will get a good solid look based on the impact it can have on the board.

 

Archer’s Parapet gets my attention pretty quickly because it is a way to help bust a board stall situation.  Two mana for 0/5 is totally doable and gives you a solid barrier to hide behind while you set up your board.  The fact that you can use it to deal damage in the later game is a nice bonus.  The black activation is not a big drawback due to all the fixing in this set, but it is something to keep in mind as you move through your draft.

 

Rite of the Serpent.  Well, Well…6 mana removal is back.  You’ll play this and it will likely get drafted mid-round because removal is always at a premium.  The thing that I like most about this card is that you get a sweet bonus of a Snake token if you take out a creature with a +/1+1 counter on it.  That’s some nice value, even if it is conditional.

 

Weave Fate is the Divination for this set, but might be slightly better because it is at instant speed.   Blue decks will want this and will be happy to grab it and play it on their opponent’s end step all game long.

 

Tusked Colossodon is a massive Green fatty for 6 mana.  I remember when Craw Wurm was the big dumb Green fatty for 6…this guy is a significant upgrade.  You won’t want this guy early but to grab him later in the round as a big defender or just a way to trigger Ferocious will earn this guy his stripes.

 

Mardu Banner and Swiftwater Cliffs sort of serve the same role of enabling the fixing in this set with so many demands on your mana base.  The fact that these are readily available in just about every pack is good news and may mean that both of these are available later in the round.  However, don’t be surprised to see these guys start disappearing earlier and earlier as people fight over the mana they want/need.

 

Swift Kick is an interesting take on the Green “fight” style of removal.  Instant speed, and getting +1/+0 could mean you take out their creature, but you are likely working out a trade at best and leaving you down a card because they lose their creature…and you just traded your creature and a spell to do it.  Also, 4 mana for this sort of effect is pretty expensive, particularly when Savage Punch is in this same set at 2 mana.  This is acceptable and does see play, but it isn’t high on my list of priorities.

 

Rush of Battle has all the trappings of being just like Sanctified Charge except Charge is an Instant and grants First Strike and not Lifelink.  The key is the Instant speed and First strike because they tip the scales and make Sanctified Charge terrific as your whole team just runs over your opponent. Rush of Battle is a sorcery, so needs to be played before combat is declared in order to even have effect, but the LifeLink doesn’t guarantee that your boys win in combat the way that Charge almost certainly ensured it.  You will rarely run this and only if you are desperate for playables or ways to trigger Prowess.

 

Cancel is a perfectly reasonable counter spell in most formats and this set is no different.  The problem becomes where do you prioritize it?  I would argue that it is a mid-round pick for me, and mostly as insurance to make sure that I am packing some counter magic, but I may find that it slides further down the pick order as the format evolves.

 

Top Five cards

 

  1. Sultai Charm
  2. Sultai Flayer
  3. Deflecting Palm
  4. Archer’s Parapet
  5. Rite of the Serpent

 

First Pick

 

My first pick out of this pack is quite seriously the Sultai Charm because I like the versatility of the spell and all three modes are very strong.  The casting cost is a little prohibitive, but there is loads of fixing in every pack and by selecting it first you can craft your deck to support all three colours if that is the route you intend to take.  However, even if you don’t play Sultai because the colours aren’t overly open, you are at least assured that you won’t have to face this down as you move through your rounds.  I had considered Deflecting Palm and opted for the Charm because it is just more useful in more situations than Deflecting Palm, which is really only good in a couple of situations.

 

Well, there we have it as we move into the new world that is Khans draft limited and things look sweet.  Even with this pack, which is pretty marginal, has a bunch of really interesting options to consider when evaluating the cards in the pack.  I’m really excited for what Khans is going to offer the draft environment and help freshen up the Limited environment.  I can’t wait to get my first crack at the format and see what the draft feels like to play first hand.

 

Thanks very much for once again reading this week and I can’t wait to see what Khans offers us as the draft and constructed formats continue to evolve and emerge.  Thanks very much and may you open nothing but Mythic rares.

Crack a Pack MTG Return to Ravnica with Bruce

Return to Ravnica booster packs - Crack a Pack MTG

Crack a Pack MTG Return to Ravnica with Bruce

by Bruce Gray – Casual Encounters

Welcome back to another Crack a Pack.  This week I have a special treat for everyone that will take us in the “Way back” time machine to almost 2 years ago.  Hard to believe. Last week I promised that I would bust open a pack from Return to Ravnica block, and true to my word, I picked up a pack of Return to Ravnica and will crack it open and see what we find.  Now, I admit, when I returned to playing Magic after a lengthy period of time off, I wasn’t exactly fond of the idea of drafting.  So, when RTR hit the stores I wasn’t much of a fan.  However, over time, I’ve come to really enjoy the format and totally wished I had been interested in drafting RTR when it was out and the new hot game in town.  Now, I just get to retro draft it…hopefully somewhere soon.  Anyway, no more wasting time, let’s open this exciting pack and see what we find.

 

Rare

 

 

Uncommon

 

 

 

Common

 

 

 

Ok, so this looks like a bit of a messy pack with a bunch of unexciting cards and healthy bunch of gold cards.  With so many gold cards in this pack I am less worried about taking them because I know they are everywhere.  That should sort of help ease my thought process, but it still leaves me looking at an ungodly number of gold cards.

 

My eyes are immediately drawn to the Supreme Verdict.  This is a perfect card to grab first because it acts as a complete safety valve and reset button.  4 mana, uncounterable mass removal?! Sure…where do I sign up.  Add in the fact that it is Constructed playable and worth plenty, and you have a very strong contender for first pick.

 

Another card that gets my attention is the Centaur Healer. 3 mana 3/3 creatures with a Enter the Battlefield trigger is a very solid creature.  The extra 3 life is pretty reasonable and is a solid body to start attacking with or to plug up the ground.  Either way, this is a very useful card.

 

Splatter Thug is another because while the card reads 2/2 first strike, it is really a 3/3 thanks to the Unleash ability (you weren’t really on intending to block with it anyway).  The difference is the first strike which pushes this ahead because it trumps most other 3 drops, including the Centaur Healer. I also like the fact that it is in a single colour giving it a little more flexibility because it could splash it in a larger number of decks.

 

Selesnya Keyrune also sparks some interest because mana fixing could be pretty crucial in a format with so many gold cards. The fact that it can double as a creature makes it somewhat appealing because it dodges some of the removal, although it clearly is a tad slow and the activation is a little clunky.

 

Centaur’s Herald is an interesting 1 drop that can be redeemed for a larger body which makes it very useful and a solid mid-round pickup. If only it was a 1/1 and not a 0/1 we’d be golden.

 

Skull Rend is a card that I’m intrigued with.  I like the ability to deal 2 damage and make my opponent discard two cards at random, but if I’m in Rakdos I don’t want to spend 5 mana on mediocre spells that don’t continue to pile on the damage in very large chunks. I can likely do better things with that 5 mana and do more damage. This might be a card I pick late round if I’m already in Black or Red and see if I can splash it…but I’m unsure.  The rewards on the discard could be amazing, but the cost and loss of relative momentum from that point leaves me a little concerned.

 

Psychic Spiral could be an interesting card if you want to play the mill strategy.  Splash it in a Golgari grave yard deck and see if you can’t get the accidental mill win.  I don’t know…this feels like it could be a surprise and wreck the odd opponent, but will largely be underwhelming.

 

Cancel is a perfectly reasonable 3 mana counterspell.  If you are playing Blue you want to have at least a copy or two of this in your pile, but I’m not lining up around the block to grab these and am happy to wait and see if I can’t find one later in the packs.

 

Drainpipe Vermin and Perilous Shadow are both reasonable black creatures to fill out your curve.  Both have interesting abilities that come along with them and as a result might be something you want, but they are undoubtedly later picks because their relative power level is quite low.

 

Horncaller’s chant seems like a solid card, but the 8 mana price tag for a pair of 4/4 rhino’s is pretty steep.  I would likely shy away from this unless I had some big time mana ramp.  It is interesting, in M15 drafts I have seen Feral Incarnation has been cast with some devastating results and the cards are both very similar.  The difference is the Convoke ability on the Feral Incarnation while with the Horncaller’s Chant you just got to get there. I would likely be shying away from this until the very last moment.

 

Codex Shredder plays a little bit to the graveyard synergies of the Golgari, but could also be part of mill strategy.  In either case, this is a fringe card that you might opt to run. I wouldn’t get excited about this and certainly won’t prioritize it, but if the situation arises, I’ll be happy to pick it.

 

Destroy the Evidence would be just about the last card I’d want.  5 mana to take out a land seems very steep.  The Mill effect that accompanies it is quite reasonable, I suppose, but I’m unlikely to be keen to mill out my opponent’s whole deck so I’ll likely avoid it too.

 

Swift Justice is a very marginal combat trick that could be nice, but I’m not likely to give it a spot in my deck.  Pass it and move on.

 

 

Top 5 cards

 

  1. Supreme Verdict
  2. Centaur Healer
  3. Splatter Thug
  4. Selesnya Keyrune
  5. Cancel

 

First Pick

This week’s first pick is easy.  Supreme Verdict might be the best mass removal spell to have seen print in the last 5 years and to pass it would be criminal.  W/U is a colour combination I’m very comfortable in, the card plays right into that strategy beautifully, and even packs a little monetary value so after the draft I could trade it or sell it.  No, this is a pretty obvious first pick and one with a lot of upside.  The other cards in this pack are all mediocre but you aren’t going to rush out and jump on them and be excited.  You’ll play them, they’ll be acceptable, and you’ll pray that the next pack passed to you is better.

 

Well, there we have our pack for this week.  Did you enjoy the look back at a little Return to Ravnica?  I know I did…and I even found that Supreme Verdict, which has me pretty stoked. Would you have picked anything else? If yes, let me know, because I’d love to know what you would have taken instead.

 

Next week, for our 10th crack a pack (I know…where has the time gone!) I’ll be back to M15 as we start the final approach to Khans and the draft format changing all over again.  Don’t worry, I’ll be back to bust open a few Retro packs at some point too, but we need to get back to what’s hot right now and that’s M15.

 

Thanks for reading again this week and until next time may you open only Mythic Bombs.
