Give yourself a non-shiny XXXIV

A new card for an old deck. Elves+Elementals with a dash of Wurms. Wouldn’t mind a foil of this one.

Give yourself a basic shiny XXXIII

One of the nicest lands I’ve seen, and even more special in shiny. Might try and get all the Mark Poole Dominaria lands in foil.

An overly familiar shiny XXXI

Dominaria is a bit light on Kev Walker. Let’s hope they’re saving him for another set.

Elf yourself a shiny XXX

Saw a photo of this in shiny and will look good in my fungal elf Brawl deck.

Give yourself a post-release now-shiny XXIX

Last card, in the last pack in my half of the booster box. Now in shiny. Donated the non-shiny to a good cause.

Give yourself a pre-release non-shiny XXVIII

Busting open my pre-release boosters, I was disappointed to find Mox Amber taking up a Mythic slot. It may well be worth money, but was no help. It’ll sit next to my unused Chrome Mox.

Give yourself a sheepy XXVI

My second Terese Nielsen Sheep card. Wish I’d coughed up for a foil Nyx-Fleece Ram now. It also rivals my Polymorphist’s Jest foil for awesome 1 damage to target/all creatures.

Yet…

I quite like this logo, in a kind of Amiga/Chaos Engine way. The Dominaria cards I’ve looked at so far seem interesting.

Puff The Magic Dragging

So new, so generic. They’ve got a tough crowd to please.

Had myself a shiny XXV

Had this for a long time and never realised how nice the art was (particularly in foil).

Give yourself an overpriced shiny XXIV

Having previously seen one of these, they do look nice. Mind’s Eye is probably the cheapest of all the Kaladesh Inventions; but is still my most expensive card. It’s also a pretty decent card functionally-wise.

RIP Bob

Bit late in getting the news, but Bob Wakelin died 20/01/2018. His illustrations were a bright spot in the 80’s when most game art was utter bobbins (Oliver Frey being an exception). I have some signed prints of his art … Continue reading

Give yourself a non-shiny XX

If only this had been a rare, it would have made a rather smashing shiny. It’s still nice though. And looks mighty fine in my unshiny Ixalan Merdfolk deck.

Another splendid Kev Walker foil.

Finally got a Mythic foil in a booster.

Give yourself a shiny XVII

Got this nice foil at the Rivals of Ixalan pre-release event (it has a date stamp on it, which I generally don’t like, but am willing to make an exception for in this case). First attempt at any sort of … Continue reading
