I’m In Love With Amonkhet Nissa, I Might Play Green Now.

My Amonkhet Favorite

Seems like every set it is harder to choose a favorite card. Don’t get me wrong there are some really good cards in this set like Glorybringer and Samut.

For this set though I’m going to have to choose the newest Nissa.

It’s not unreasonable to think this Planeswalker could come down on turn 3, 7, or 10. Scry with any card and then use her zero loyalty option to cast things for free. There is so much value with casting things for free. It’s a fantastic way to really load up the board and change the game state to your favor.

Then when you’re ready, use that ultimate and fly over and do some heavy damage. Even Scry 2 has some major implications for early and late game play if that’s all you’re using her for.

The only downside with Amonkhet Nissa is when there is no creatures you control on the battlefield. She does not protect herself like many other Planeswalkers but I think the upside of X-cost and getting things on the battlefield will outweigh that mostly controllable drawback.

Honorable Mentions

I’ve been playing limited more with this set and I’ve got to say I’m a huge fan of the Trials and Cartouches. If you’re doing a draft and you see a trial think long and hard about if you can make that color work. I’ve won games with green and red trials. Bouncing them back to your hand for a repeat effect is always a great addition to a limited strategy. Try it out at your next draft and let me know how it goes!

Tell me which card or cards you love the most? Also what are your thoughts of the Gods? I think they are fairly underwhelming.

Kickstarter’s That Matter: The Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast

The Secret Cabal

If you don’t know what the Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast is you’re really missing out. Go, here, seriously though, stop reading and go here. These guys are veterans when it comes to covering board games, gaming industry, RPGs, and nearly everything else related to tabletop gaming.

The Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast

The producer and main host is Jamie Keagy and he nails board game explanations better than anyone…well except for Bebo. Go watch some of her videos if you have a few dollars to spend she will convince you to buy something! Anyways, back to the cabal. They are trying to raise $25,000 so Jamie can quit his day job. Normally not a good idea but in this case I support the move 110%.

The Kickstarter

They have already raised more than $80,000 so I think it’s safe to say they will hit their goal. The main reward for donating is direction to join their augmented reality game or ARG. No not an ARG like Pokemon Go, but a game where the members of the game change the direction of the story or have to find clues to further the story. Maybe a person died, like David Bowie. The Agent’s of the Cabal could figure out who did it! Of course they don’t know who actually did it but they can suspend belief for a moment and play the game.

Ok, why are you telling us?

Well, ok I’m telling you because I think this is a great cause, Jamie deserves this. Secondly, Agent of the Secret Cabal! Are you kidding me? That sounds like a blast. Check out their Kickstarter for more info!
