Dark Ascension!

Post  dcalrokundess on Fri Jan 13, 2012 1:04 pm

Hey all!

Just wanted to see which cards y'all are excited about from the Dark Ascension spoilers! Personally, I really like Havengul Lich
Havengul Lich 3UB
Creature - Zombie Wizard
1: You many cast target creature card from a graveyard this turn. When you cast that card this turn, Havengul Lich gains all activated abilities of that card until end of turn.
4/4

and I feel like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is going to make me want to drive bulldozers into piles of flaming garbage.

Thalia, Guardian of Thraben 1W
Legendary Creature - Human Soldier
First Strike
Noncreature spells cost 1 more to cast.
2/1

Just wanted to bring this up from something I read in another forum. Havengul Lish + Heartless Summoning + Priest of Urabrask for infinite mana. Credit to onewheelwizzard from MTGsalvation.

Nothing really struck me as being too crazy until the Vault of the Archangel.

Great card.

Yea with 100 cards left to release - vampires, werewolves, and zombies could all potentially be viable.

Clearly black white tokens or weenie undying aggro will be a valid archetype at this point.

I dig, guys. I'm leaning towards a UB zombie list, myself. They seem to be giving zombies quite the push as well.

im kinda disappointed about DKA, i like it in someways but the fact there are only 5 cards worth more than 5+ dollars is sad. I mean the set hasn't even come out yet and it is already a bad set to pick as prizes after winning the pre release or fnm. Also just not many cards that seem they will change the u/w aggro deck dominance, we get a possible (but prolly not) w/b tokens deck but it doesn't have anything township doesn't have to beat delver or wolf run. meanwhile u/w humans looks like it might just dominant the meta with champion of the parish into gather the townsfolk.

overall i say hte set is less awesome then Inn was...and well i didn't like Inn all that much...

oh btw Inn final metagame update as of last weekend (final weekend)
top 8:
premier event # 1 - 6 u/w delver ; 1 u/w humans; 1 u/w illusions

premier event # 2 - 6 u/w delver; 2 u/w humans

yay...for a diverse metagame that everyone thinks we are in lolz

The value seems weird but I think that the day scars block rotates out we'll see people wishing they had hung onto some of these cards or bought a box of them now. There's a lot of good rares and uncommons in this set that will likely see play in the fall. Not to mention the ones that will already see play - there are 20-30 off the top of my head that are tier1 playable - just most of them happen to be common and uncommon.
