New set, new review, new awesome cards heading our way.
You know how it goes: Wizards prints up a new set and we, as players, take a look at all of the goodness they dropped in our laps and we drink it up. That’s right, we drink their milkshake. What flavors did they leave for us this time? Let’s see what we’ve got.

As you know, for the first time ever there has been true colorless spells printed. Any of these colorless spells can be put in any EDH deck and for the first time Karn (and the new Eldrazi Generals) can finally play an instant spell.

One of the best EDH sets ever; certainly one of the top two I’ve ever reviewed for this blog.

I didn’t really focus on some of the tribalish cards such as the Merfolk and Elf Levelers because if you’re playing those decks, you’re going to put them in there anyway; they’re no good to you in Goblin decks.
Lucky for you guys I went and made every new ROE card linked to a new tab/window; click away with joy now.
And, without further ado, the reviews. Continue reading
