Mirrodin Besieged Momir Set Revew

Lets Hop Right in With a Mirrodin beseiged Set Review: 83 Creatures Total, The Most Significant one is pictured above,  so lets talk about 12's for a minute here(3 creatures total), 12 is now awesome: The WORST you get is an 8/8 legendary nothing(iname as one), and 2/3 of the time you will get blightsteel or it that betrays, both of which are completely awesome and non-legendary.  If you are on 12, i would suggest playing them UNTIL you hit iname, then maybe going back to 11's.  But you should be winning pretty fast from that position anyway.

Beseiged has no 8-11's.

7's:  8/8 nothing, 5/7 nothing, 4/6 vigilance and a 5/5 hasty dragon with a marginal pump ability

6's: Massacre Wurm and Victory's Herald are both huge bombs for 6(especially herald) and Consecrated Sphinx and Phyrexian Juggernaut aren't Bad either.  Thopter Assembly is interesting and contextually strong.  the Other 6's are genericish 4/4's and 5/5's

Significant Cards 5 and Below:
Traning Drone: another Whiff at 3
Cryptoplasm: another Dream 3
Plague Myr: Dream 2
Viridan Emissary: Very interesting card and a total skill tester for the format.
2/3 Mountainwalker/Forestwalker: Very Solid 3, especially the Mountainwalker
Blisterslick Shaman: Solid 3
Gore Vassal: Awesome for sure at 3, kind of a tricky card to use but you should be able to find a spot.

 Quick Note about Phyrexian Revoker: I don't think it is working as intended on MODO right now. I'm in the middle of an email argument with WOTC customer service about compensation for a game in which my opponent got sakura-tribe scout on 1, follows by me getting revoker on 2 and naming scout, and him still being able to use it. 

That about Wraps up Mirrodin besieged Momir Set Review, Any word about weather the "commander only" sets are coming to MODO? If they are they will be shaking up momir for SURE.

  2. I have only ever played 3 matches about 10 yrs ago. Happy to say I went 3-0. Still don't know much about the game, I vaguely remember using maybe a blue/white deck.... not sure.

  6. looks like it's time to bust out my cards again! I think the highest creature I ever had was an 8/8? Phyrexian Collosus...and he wouldn't untap normally. So I kept some key around that would untap target artifacts, was a nice combo when it worked. (:
