Mirrodin Besieged: Mawre Cards!

Hurray, the Mirrodin Besieged-spoiler is complete already! This is a continuing trend from recent sets, where the spoiler goes up on wednesday instead of the night before the prerelease. Anyhoo, I decided to round up my personal thoughts on the new set with giving the new cards a look. Just the cards that interest me, mind you. Let’s get to it.

Mono White Silver

New sets mean new opportunities. The latest Magic set, Scars of Mirrodin, did not disappoint. Scars presented opportunities for new cards to shine (see: Mimic Vat), opportunities for old cards to shine (see: Phyrexian Devourer). Scars also had one card that I could make shine while doing the same with other cards. The card; Prototype Portal. The other cards; Mono White Silver Control. Continue reading
