Magic Card of the Week: Rooftop Storm

We’re back again with another Magic Card of the Week! This week’s selection is Rooftop Storm.

Six mana puts this enchantment into play for you, but after that the doors are pretty much wide open. Unleash the hordes of zombies you’ve got stashed in your hand for the low low cost of free.

I like this card because it can really change the mechanics of most zombie decks as I’ve know them. The enchantment being blue means you have to find some way of creating blue mana in an otherwise likely all-black deck. This creates a lot of opportunity to expand the blue-black control side of the game by combining it with a creature-type theme.

It could be just the excuse you’re looking for to go for broke on the blue control until your zombie horde hits the deck, or it could be the keystone of a card-drawing Zombie deck.

Tons of possibilities for this one. Enjoy!
