Sorry it's been so long since an update, after getting a new computer shortly after christmas, i've been having alot of fun getting back into computer gaming.
The release of worldwake, however, is getting me excited about magic again, as there are quite a few amazing artifacts coming with this set. For the full list, just head to MTG Salvation's Spoiler. I'm just going to talk about the ones i'm most excited about.
I have both a construct and a golem deck and these are going to be interesting to see in there. They might not end up staying, but I always enjoy testing a new member of an (obscure) tribe. The lodestone golem in particular has an artifact control aspect to it which I really appreciate.
It's interesting to see an equipment strictly better than an old one (neurok hoversail), especially when that piece was a usefull way to add flying to a ground-bound colorless deck.
On the face of it, this isn't particularly powerful, but mana artifacts almost always find some use. I'd keep an eye on this one to see if someone breaks it.
This is the one that's got me hooked. This opens up a rediculous number of combo possibilities in various formats and i'm looking forward to seeing how it plays out. things that come into play tapped piss me off anyway.
