Magic Card of the Week: Dragonmaster Outcast

March 21, 2011 Magic No Comments


This week’s MCotW is Dragonmaster Outcast, from the Worldwake set.

This shaman may not look like much, being a 1/1 creature for 1 red mana, but he has potential to be a serious problem for your opponents.

During each of your upkeeps, if you have six lands, Dragonmaster Outcast will gift you a 5/5 flying dragon for free, just for letting him hang out.

Nice guy.

My first thought when I saw this little bastard was “wow, this needs to be in my dragon deck,” but really, there are so places where he can be applied.

He only costs one red and his ability is triggered by lands, not just mountains so there is no need to restrict him to a mono-red deck.

Toss him into any deck where you’ve splashed red, and you’ll definitely see some results, dragon-beatdown-style.

Magic Card of the Week: Go For The Throat

March 14, 2011 Magic No Comments


Recently appearing in the Mirrodin: Besieged set, Go For The Throat is our Magic Card of the Week.

In this new expansion, it is no surprise that one of the most terrifying cards in your arsenal is an improvement on Terror itself.

Go For The Throat shows itself an expert in quick creature removal, doing away with the old “non-black, non-artifact” qualification to its targets, and simply making it “non-artifact.”

Two mana is all it takes to put one of these in the chamber, and then it’s just point and cast from there.

You can never have quite enough easy creature kills. Having cards like these around keeps your opponent off balance, never quite knowing when their carefully laid battle plans could come apart in a split second.

Felicia Day Brings Dragon Age To Life

With yesterday’s launch of Bioware’s Dragon Age II in mind, I thought I would bring up something I’ve been meaning to report on. Felicia Day, the internet’s second hottest redhead, has put together a live-action webseries based on the Dragon Age universe titled Dragon Age: Redemption. She’s well known for her roles in the popular webseries The Guild and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. The trailer for Dragon Age: Redemption can be viewed here.

Felicia Day stars as Tallis, an elven assassin, on a quest to capture a renegade wizard, gathering companions as she goes. This six-part webseries is set to launch in Summer 2011, and promises to turn Dragon Age and fantasy nerds everywhere into drooling messes. I think I’ll preemptively start drooling all over myself about now. Might as well get it out of the way, right?

Magic Card of the Week: Ancient Hellkite

March 7, 2011 Magic No Comments


This week’s Magic Card is none other than the dragon-badass Ancient Hellkite.

Despite the high mana cost that this giant bastard demands before he’ll rouse himself to your cause, he can be a tremendous asset on the battlefield. Seven mana is not often an easy cost to choke down, but it will likely be an investment in victory in Ancient Hellkite’s case.

This 6/6 flying fire-breather doesn’t have the typical dragon ability of just adding to his power for a mana cost, ineffectually overkilling the balloon brigades of goblins assigned to block them.

No, he uses the mana and just starts nuking defending creatures before they’ve even been assigned to block.

Use this ability to have Ancient Hellkite burn holes in your opponent’s defenses so that he or more of your vassals can get through to tear up your enemy’s face.

Those of you who frequent our forum discussions might be familiar with our lists of ‘Never-Beaten Games’. Well, mine has been increasing recently, virtually unchecked, as I’m currently rounding out my third playthrough of Mass Effect 2 (by the way, totally deserving of Game of the Year, Newbs). Yes, I’m a filthy addict.

Anyway, I’ve decided I need to and tackle a couple of these games and knock them off the list. But the unbeaten bastards have multiplied and I can’t decide. I’ve narrowed it down to four, however, so you guys get to decide what I’ll be wasting my time on for the next little while.

1. Ochenbara: Bikini Samurai Squad. Ya, two Japanese sisters ripping apart Zombies with swords. This game can only be awful.
2. Prince of Persia. I’ve heard good things. This is the one where you have that magic chick helping you out in combat all the time or whatever.
3. The Last Remnant. This will be my third attempt to destroy this game. It is a level-grinding  nightmare, but the strategy is kind of interesting for a while.
4. MTV’s Pimp My Ride. I can ‘Roll with Xzibit’ according to the back of this game… that’s something to look forward to.

So what’s the deal, ShufflingDead readers? Which game should I play next?
