John Dale Beety talks successes and failures in storytelling, new artists making their Magic debut in Battle for Zendikar, and shares some of the best and worst flavor text the new set has to offer!
Nissa has become a popular character in recent Magic memory, but did you know that everyone's favorite elf planeswalker started out downright villainous? JDB investigates the Nissa we thought we knew...
Abe Sargent is just quivering with excitement in anticipation of our imminent return to Zendikar, and today's Commander deck is all about building Landfall triggers in preparation for that climactic battle!
Since he was first printed, Jace Beleren has always been almost a stick figure of a planeswalker - left without any real history or character almost as if it was intentional, so that it would be easier to fill that role ourselves. But no more - meet the real Jace!
With the set fully spoiled and in our hot little hands this past weekend at the Prerelease, John Dale Beety sifts through Magic Origins to savor the artistry, the story, and the feel of the set in true Vorthosian fashion.
