I've been so outta the metagame recently so this is a "going in blind" pack for me. Ill break it down and take the cards for their face value and their synergy within the pack.
So lets get started with the rare. My first reaction is, "not bad.. If there were some way to buff this, it could be pretty dangerous to some people." But looking at the other cards in the pack it just doesn't really work. although High Priest's ability is potentially very good, a 1/1 is just WAY to easy to be killed and while you get to destroy 1 of your opponents creatures/artifacts its just not worth it. I'd probably pass it. All in all id say this is a rather medium pack. My pick would be the foundry street denizen. With that card its a solid first pick for an aggro deck. The snapjaw, slaughterhorn, and shanktail seem decent enough filler cards if you are looking for creatures. If G/R is what you are going for the Primal visitation might not be bad. +3/+3 buff is not bad at all. Haste is good to although I doubt it will be relevant most time considering the card costs 5 mana.
Thats about all I can say about this pack. Again I've been out of the scene for awhile and I'm sure some of the criticisms were terrible. Next week will be better.
These next few days I am gonna go over some decks I will be looking at and breaking them down. Hopefully with some game-play too. I think filming so games off Cockatrice or something with the decks would be fun. Tell me what you guys think. Also tell me a bit about the pack if I missed anything.
One last thing. I am still looking for writers. If you are interested in having some fun writing an article or two per week for us, and receiving a bit of money please shoot an email to "Cal.Wooten95@gmail.com".
Best of luck to you guys, I hope you have a good rest of the week.
