HELL YEAH! SPOILER SEASON! With all mythics now revealed and the theme of the set shaping up, there has been nonstop tweeting gearing up toward prerelease. As with all spoiler seasons, only time will tell if our first reactions to our new toys will be correct. The new Gods garnered many comments, but there were two who definitely received the bulk of feedback:
Wow really, Athreos presage at $25+? I hate this game.— Cory Jude (@CoryJude) April 15, 2014
Can I just auto Yes all Athreos triggers on MTGO, I am guessing if I am in an edh game with Athreos I will want a quick painful death— theamazingchris (@ChristianRenoe) April 15, 2014
omg Athreos has pretty sickening ability— Mike Grote (@MTGOFerret) April 14, 2014
Do Pharika and Athreos both being 3 mana make Junk Reanimator an actual viable deck now? So much synergy.— Dr. Jeebus (@Dr_Jeebus) April 14, 2014
@TheBoozeCube Yeah, Athreos, Voice, Pharika, Sin Collecgor, Aristocrat and a maw of the obzedat seem like a hell of a combo— Jeremy Bordt (@Sliverthorn) April 14, 2014
Spent some downtime this morning jotting down ideas for Pharika/Vraska midrange. Spoilers always make me want to build EVERY DECK #MTGJOU— TMS Armstrong (@tms_armstrong) April 14, 2014
Was so disappointed with Pharika I almost forgot to check the rest of the spoilers #mtgjou— James Knopp (@JamesKnopp) April 14, 2014
With the Gods spoiled, people had a much better sense of the direction #MTGJOU is headed as we wrap up our time in Theros:
They should rename the tagline to the set as 'Attack of the sideboards'. All of these cards are literally sb cards with P/T #MTGJOU— Pao Bago (@paolopathy) April 15, 2014
So this set is basically trying to make Zur Prison a thing on its own, huh? Storm hoser, burn hoser... #MTGJOU— Chris Lansdell (@lansdellicious) April 15, 2014
Journey into Nyx is looking to be an amazing last set. WotC needed this after Dragon's Maze. I'm stoked for it's release.— PaperShaman (@PaperShaman) April 15, 2014
There were some random favorites from the set:
But the crown jewel of Journey into Nyx can only be awarded to one card. It wasn’t even close:
#MTGJOU Star-Woolen Sheep with Godsend and Sunbond makes me giggle with glee.— Steve Field (@edgarmash79) April 14, 2014
Oh. And we have a new Ajani . . .
How many Ajani fans in the house tonight? :) #MTGJOUApril 9, 2014
Everyone at Gathering Magic would like to wish you a happy Prerelease, and may the gods be favorable with every crack of the pack.
Be kind, each to the other.
