Went to today's Release Party. Really didn't want to go, but pushed myself.
Needless to say, it was shaping up to be a really bad day. 4 boosters in and all I'd pulled was a Door to Nothingness and a Nefarox. The latter is great, but I wasn't finding a lot to work with for the others. I was getting exalted white and black and I was furious. Only ONE bomb to work with and only two entombs. I got a Xathrid Ring but that only gets me so far.
I crack open my last pack and I know I'm about to get screwed. I put my face to the table and groaned...
...Looked through the last pack. Lo and behold, the luck of the golden gods hit me like a ton of bricks. The last card in my last pack was a god damn CatManDo (Ajani) and I could not have been happier. So happy I laughed a little hysterically and got a few stares.
I went 1 and 4 for the event but I just can not give any fucks. I finally have another planeswalker and I could not be happier. Moreover, it was the last freaking card, HAD I NOT GOTTEN THE PACKS HANDED TO ME AS I DID, I wouldn't have gotten it. I was absolutely thrilled.
So yeah, poor performance in the event but great pulls.
Also, how about that news about Return to Ravnica and Gatecrash?!http://mtgfan.tumblr.com/post/271657622 ... -mtg-panel
RTR pre-release is shaping up to be one of the most awesomely chaotic and fun looking events. The whole thing about having to choose a Guild to join should add an interesting bit of flavor to the whole experience. Assuming each guild is based around mana colors, it's going to be tough to choose between White or Blue for me.
Probably will do Blue and White for Ravnica and then Red and Green for Gatecrash... Maybe only decide on one to not play and possible go to ALL Pre-Release tournaments. Probably will be exhausting but I wanna try it, especially to try and get those promo dice.
Also sounds like Gideon may be a Green/White based on the detailing about his artwork involving an angel. Not surprising at all, looking forward to whatever will go on with his storyline there. (Yes, I mixed up Gideon and Garruk earlier, so sue me.)
EDIT: Also wanted to suggest everyone who wants more RTR spoilers check out that blog I linked for the SDCC panel. They have a leaked image of the Guild Gift Sets that will be given away at the Pre-Releases and they look 'awesome'. Definitely gonna have a hard time making a choice of which guilds to join in RTR and GTC.
