Khans of Tarkir Countdown Day: 7 – Temur’s Ferocious Savagery

 

TemurTemur’s color wedge are GUR, with G as its primary focus. The following Temur color cards have been spoiled so far:

 

Temur CardsThe keyword action Ferocious is associated with Temur. The following cards with Ferocious have been spoiled so far:Ferocious Cards

 


Temur emphasis on power, and they reward people who do. Ferocious rewards players who cast spells with additional abilities when they have a creature with power 4 or greater. This will provide a great incentive to players to build a quality board quickly, as the snowballs quickly.

At first impression, Surrak Dragonclaw will probably be the de facto leader to go for as a finisher bomb that demands answer. Savage Knuckleblade is another quality creature that demands respect!

Khans of Tarkir Countdown Day: 8 – Mardu’s Speedy Raid

Mardu

Mardu‘s color wedge are RWB, with R as its primary focus. The following Mardu color cards have been spoiled so far:

Mardu Cards

The keyword action Raid is associated with Mardu. The following cards with Raid have been spoiled so far:

Raid Cards


Mardu emphasis on speed. That is an understatement but one that best describes the clan. A quick glance leaves the impression that Mardu rewards player with extreme tight plays turn by turn, especially rewarding if you continue to flood the board with turns and turns of creatures. Raid is probably the keyword action with the easiest access in the set, dealing with an action that most decks are required to do on an every turn basis – attack.

Crackling Doom could turns out to be the Removal of the format, damaging opponent and forcing them to sacrifice potentially their best creature on board. It might yet resolve the issue of burn decks having little to no access to cards that grants that card advantage in the Standard Format.

Khans of Tarkir Countdown Day: 9 – Sultai’s Ruthless Delve

 

SultaiSultai‘s color wedge are BGU, with B as its primary focus. The following Sultai color cards have been spoiled so far:Sultai Cards

The keyword action Delve is associated with Sultai. The following cards with Delve have been spoiled so far:Delve Cards


The first impression of Sultai is that it continues the BG tradition of dredge and graveyard emphasis abilities. Delve allows higher cost spells to be cast ahead of the curve by tweaking their cmc via exiling cards from Graveyard. Sultai’s Ascendancy speaks out greatly – Pseudo-Scry 2 which can be used to fuel Delve and other dredge concepts cannot be taken lightly!

Khans of Tarkir Countdown Day: 10 – Jeskai’s Cunning Prowess

JeskaiJeskai‘s color wedge are URW, with U as its primary focus. The following Jeskai color cards have been spoiled so far:Jeskai Cards

The keyword action Prowess is associated with Jeskai. The following cards with Prowess have been spoiled so far:Prowess


The first impression that Jeskai gives is that it rides on U tradition of having plenty of non-destruction combat tricks. Card drawing, untapping and granting Lifelink to creatures have been spoiled so far. It is exciting to note that Mantis Rider will probably become a powerhouse 3 drop in the limited formats, if not in constructed.

Playing against Jeskai is surely going to keep you on the edge of your seat as the wide range of Combat tricks coming your way serves to up the difficulty of your game.

Khans of Tarkir Countdown Day: 11 – Abzan’s Outlasting Endurance

Abzan

Abzan‘s color wedge are WBG, with W as its primary focus. The following Abzan color cards have been spoiled so far:Abzan Cards

The keyword action Outlast is associated with Abzan. The following cards with Outlast have been spoiled so far:Outlast Cards

 


The first impression of Abzan is that it continues the W tradition of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. It features heavily on abilities that grants +1/+1 counter on creatures using Outlast and similar effects, while gaining additional advantage when you do.

The overall flavor seems to favor a build inclined towards hardcasting and protecting a creature while outlasting your opponent in an endurance race.

Creatures like Ainok Bond-Kin and Herald of Anafenza demands answers quickly before they start to generate an overwhelming advantage, while Anafenza, the Foremost and Ivorytusk Fortress reap the benefit.

Welcome to MTG Shared Minds

Hello everyone, this is a new site that will be dedicated to providing a platform for everyone to engage in discussion with regards to all aspect of the game.

The inspiration behind this is simple: As a new player to this game, I tried to learn quickly by asking tonnes of questions to every decision by all other players. I personally find that there is no other way to learning quickly aside from asking questions and engaging in discussion with people with differing views. It is through this difference in opinion that we can weigh our options and choose something that fits the existing scenario best.

“Perfection is a moving target” ~ Susan Fletcher

The idea of perfection is ever-evolving, perfect decisions made today may be imperfect tomorrow due to a change in understanding and underlying circumstances. Therefore, players must constantly strive to improve on their understanding of the game to better themselves.

Feel free to make any suggestion to improve this site, your opinion are highly appreciated.

Let us improve together and perfect this game we hold dear.
