Was the absence of Preeminent Captain from Odric an over-sight, or do you feel there aren't enough soldiers in the deck tosupport him?

I'm both orderly and rational. I value control, information, and order. I love structure and hierarchy, and will actively use whatever power or knowledge I have to maintain it. At best, I am lawful and insightful; at worst, I am bureaucratic and tyrannical.
While the other two options from Magic 2013 are direct, sincere, and obvious in what they want, Yeva is a bit more suggestive.


Interesting choice of words, there.

Yup, just like you can have Birds of paradise in a mono green deck but not Noble Hierarch. YAY COLOR IDENTITY

I love this description. Like the cows are sponges filled with milk. I can see it all Nick Parks claymation-style with the cow's eyes bugging out momentarily as a giant farmer squeezes it like a squeaky dog toy, and milk shoots out of it.

Adam, there's no premium foil. Wizards has made cuts. Again.

Do the Intro Packs really not have foils at the front anymore?!

Yeah, I want to know if this is true or not.  I really wanted a foil Krenko.

I'm both instinctive and emotional. I value my own instincts and desires, and either ignore or crush anything that stands in my way; planning and foresight are unnecessary. At best, I'm determined and fierce; at worst, I'm headstrong and infantile.

No, the legendaries are pretty shiny alright. I might be wrong, but it looks like they are using the From the Vault foiling method now. It certainly seems different.

Correct. There are Soldiers, but there's a ton of non-Soldier stuff too. The Soldier Lords are nice together, but I don't foresee tons of extra Soldiers in hand.

"This Friday" is the 13th, not the 20th, so which is it?

~ Tim 



The 20th is the correct date. I have something special planned for everyone's deck lists.

Yes, everyone's.

a.) Nemata guards groves not graves.
b.)  Now I'm going ot have that horrid Panic at the Disco song stuck in my head! Thanks!

But really, I love the Yeva deck and I'll probably be building one of my own. Thank you. Such a great Rattlesnake general.
