MTG Monday: Tendershoot Dryad!

Magic The Gathering card back!

I have been hankering to go to a local second hand store that sells a verity of items that would peek the interest of nerds & geeks alike. I went in with the intent to purchase a few booster packs for Amonkhet series. Unfortunately they did not have any available. I instead I purchased a ‘Rivals Of Ixalan’ booster pack. This post is going to feature a card that I acquired within the fifteen cards.

Tenderhoot Dryad, from the ‘Rivals Of Ixalan’, is a green creature card. The card effect’s are that you ascend, and if you control ten or more permanents, you get the city’s blessing for the rest of the game. Also, At the beginning of each upkeep turn, you create a 1/1 green Saproling creature token. The Sparolings you control get a +2/ +2 as long as you have the city’s blessing. (You can see the full card at the Wizard’s Of The Coast “Gatherer” tool here: http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?name=tendershoot%20dryad)

If you are looking to build a green deck, it would seem as if this card can do some real damage to the opponent you are up against.

Here is a video from youtube to explain how the card would work in a deck!

MTG Monday: Eldrazi Mimic!

Over the weekend I went to a local gaming store that sold a bunch of older games and various systems. They just so happened to have a small selection of Magic! The Gathering cards available to purchase. They had Oath of the Gatewatch, Ixalan, and Ravnica Allegiance booster pack’s. My eyes focused on Gatewatch, so I picked a pack up.

When I got home I put my stuff away and sat the pack on my desk. I opened up the MTGGoldfish website and busted open the pack of cards. Upon opening the pack, I got some very basic cards. Their was one card that caught my eye. That card being Eldrazi Mimic. A creature that swaps power and toughness with another colorless creature when it enters the battlefield.

The flavor text is “It is consistently inconsistent.”

I found that tag line absolutely hilarious and true.

To take a look at the card, please visit the following: http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?printed=true&multiverseid=407512

MTG Monday: I Have Been Recruited!

Magic! card back!

If you seen the gift that I had gotten my younger brother this past Christmas, you know that he now has a lot of work to do. You can see the pictures in the following post: https://zephirahsadventure.wordpress.com/2018/12/17/mtg-monday-christmas-came-early/

He received a box of one thousand Magic! The Gathering cards from a company by the name of “Star City Games” and it has been very slow going when it comes to entering it into the MTGGoldfish site. So, I have been recruited to help him out with the data entry. With in a two hour period I had entered about one hundred cards into the site for him.

I honestly do not mind doing some data entry. I am just happy he is enjoying his Christmas gift.

As I stated in the linked blog post above, if you are looking for a gift for a MTG fan in your life, it may be worth it to get the one thousand card box for them. You can purchase it via Amazon here!

MTG Monday: Magic The Gathering Arena!

Last week, a member of the raid team I run with in Warcraft had made a suggestion.

His suggestion was to download and play “Magic: The Gathering! Arena”. My younger brother, who also plays and collect’s MTG Cards, made the suggestion to me as well. I have also seen several people play the game via twitch as well. So, I quickly went over to the Wizards Of The Coast website and did so.

I figured, I would play 2 or 3 nights a week, and get better at mechanic’s. Honestly, it is fun. I really am enjoying my time spent in the game thus far.

So, for those of you that are looking to play more MTG, and have minimal time, this may also be a good way to scratch the itch!

You can download the game here: https://magic.wizards.com/en/mtgarena

MTG Monday: Christmas came early!

Greetings fellow Magic! The Gathering players. I first wanted to start the blog post with the following disclaimer. This post is not sponsored by ‘Star City Games’ or any of their affiliates.

My last post I mentioned that I had purchased a gift for my younger brother and it came in on Tuesday of last week. 

When it came in I was super excited for him and my parents talked me into giving the gift early. Within the box is 1000 Magic! The Gathering cards. I was poking around Amazon and stumbled across it. (Click here for product on Amazon!)

Once I arrived, I knew what it was right away and was super excited. After a couple minuets, and some scheming. My parents and I called my little brother down from his room. We acted as if he was in trouble. The look on his face was hilarious. He really thought he was in trouble when he wasn’t. I told him to take the box out of the bag as we tell him what he was “in trouble” for. 

Once he opened the box and started to take some of the cards from the box, he realized it was a gift. The boy started to cry and asked how many cards was in the box. Once he figured it was 1000, he cried a little harder.

I am super glad he is going to get use from it. Hopefully our local store has a tournament soon so he can get involved.

So, boys and girls. If you are looking for a gift for your MTG fan in your life, this is worth the money.

Feature Friday: Alternative Chat!

Let me start with the following statement. With any featured blog, video, tweet, or any other from of commentary I post to the blog those are though’s of that particular person. I in no way want to sway their thoughts or opinions. I would rather like to have a conversation on the topic at hand. I am not going to openly have a salty take on things here either.

In other words, if you are going to be a jerk, this is not the place for it.

On that note, I found Alternative Chat’s “The End of the Innocence” post interesting. You can read their entire post here! (Clicky Clicky!)

In their post, and I am quoting here. “I am not here to tell you how to spend your cash. I cannot also reasonably direct anyone to stop enjoying something they clearly love and appreciate based on business decisions. The whole mantra of ‘let people enjoy what they do’ needs to continue to be sung, for as long as people have the capacity to do so. How that happens is nobody else’s business but yours.” That statement I absolutely agree with. Who are you, Alternative Chat’s author, any other player of Warcraft, and I to tell anyone to tell someone how to spend their money? I find people that do that type of thing incredibly insulting and to be quite honest an absolute jerk bag.

Alternative Chat pointed out the new mount on the Blizzard store was only meant to be for Korean player base. I will entertain the idea that they have in their post as well that it is a flying, blue colored mount that is a skin of the fox mount from Legion that could be obtained via your Class Hall Mission table. I was lucky enough to get the said mount in my collection. I use it often. Honestly, I do not know weather or not I am going to spend the cash to get it because of the other various mounts in game that I have yet to get to drop that I, as a collector, would love to have.

Is it a cash grab? Sure. Whatever terms you want to use there. However, paying for mounts from the Blizzard online store is not something new. This is also true for Battle Pets. (My previous statement about collecting in game Battle Pets in game over purchasing them still stands in this situation!)

Basically, with the changes within the company recently, one that is out there for making money. With the end of the Heroes of the Storm esports and the release globally of the mount, in the long run, making money is in mind. Do I hate that people lost their jobs? Hell yes. It is also just before the holiday season. It just plain sucks.

I just hope that their is some way to work things out in the future to have the esports for Hero’s at a smaller scale. I know people love that game and the esports behind it. How to accomplish that? I have no idea.

*sigh*

Basically, if you like the mount and want to get it – do so. If not then don’t. Also, remember that there are people behind the pixels. You know, actual humans. Practice being kind even if you do not like what happened.
