MTG: Phyrexia Prerelease

It's like so often in the heoversum - some ideas come from the conversation in the break room. So it was at the beginning of February when the invitation to the MTG Phyrexia Prerelease was coming.

First hesitation, no worries! There is a beginners group - very good, the last duel was a good 25 years ago.

Not much will have changed...what a mistake.

So we grabbed some boosters - joy for the veterans and confusion for the newcomers.



Toxic. Deckbuilding. Toxic markers. What?!

New rules (or rather...MANY rules) were explained to us noobs and deck building was also much more enjoyable with assistance.

So while the experienced people were already busy playing in Villarriba, they were still deckbuilding in Villabajo. And the realization that you don't build your deck according to the most beautiful motifs, but according to usability, spread quickly.

Ok, can we start?

No, first pizza! A hungry planeswalker is just not useful.

Mananana, Tap, Tap, Tap!

The first rounds were characterized by uncertainty and hesitation. Reduce 20 life points or place 10 poison tokens? Decisions, decisions. 10 sounds faster, but even that turned out to be more difficult than expected. In the end, however, it didn't matter at all, because having fun and laughing about one's own incompetence was the top priority on the beginner's side. And so it happened that after a few games, the time between the worlds flew by.



All will be one!

The theme of Magic's latest expansion is reflected in the end in heo's own philosophy - not only working together, but also experiencing something together. This is how many individual characters become a team.

However, there were still a few unanswered questions after the hours spent together:

  • When is the next Magic evening?

  • Do we need more boosters?

  • Who ate the last piece of pizza?



What's coming next?

The aftermath of the Phyrexia evening has left its mark and rumor has it that a few staff members have traded in some salary for new boosters.

So while we're still busy sorting cards and building new deck constructions, two big announcements are waiting in the wings.

First, of course, the next expansion "March of the Machine", which is the climax of the story around the Phyrexian Reign of Terror, and second, the long-awaited crossover of "Magic: The Gathering" and "Lord of the Rings".

We're looking forward to the latter not only from a collector's perspective, but especially from a movie fan's perspective.

Two of our strongest franchises bundled into one product - to stay with the Prerelease motto: All will be one!
