Sunny Lorwyn subsides to dusk, and the shadows bring horrors untold...
I'll admit, though, that I had my apprehensions when I first heard of "Shadowmoor," the latest expansion of the trading card game Magic: The Gathering. I had grown very fond of Lorwyn's fairy tale denizens as well as the game's new emphasis on tribal mechanics. The ease with which these could be assimilated into story-based themes also heavily appealed to the Vorthos player in me.
Last saturday though, I finally got my grubby little hands on the new cards. Bought two tournament starters instead of precons since I needed new lands badly. Then to my complete and utter delight, one of my rares turned out to be...Oona, Queen of the Fae
Practically squealed my head off when I saw her. I've been grousing for months about never getting a single fairy rare since Lorwyn came out, and had thus joked about "deserving" Oona. Talk about a sweet little stroke of luck
or was it fairy favor? Eheh.
Anyway, I now have a brand new fairy deck with several others in the works. Also managed to tweak many old decks with the new cards.
Still hoping to get Wooded Bastion, Raking Canopy, and a couple more Sapseep Groves.
We've also got a Demigod of Revenge for trade if anyone's interested
