Gatecrash previews have officially started. All the guild mechanics are out in the open. There's a bunch of cards already spoiled, and the set looks superb so far. I'm looking forward to the prerelease.

Top guild right now: Orzhov. Extort looks like lots of fun. That'll be my current top pick for prerelease guild. We'll see if this changes later, I suppose.

Runner-up: Gruul. I'm imagining having an aggro deck with a million gazillion combat tricks and blowing my opponents out repeatedly. Mmmm...

I don't actually have a lot to say beyond that. This format is going to be awesome.

The end of the year is coming up and my fate cards are expiring. If I'm going to use these instakill darts, I need to use them now. Time to bite the bullet, tear the fire cape in half, and jump into the Fight Kiln.

Double TokHaar-Jad, eh? Instakill darts, one, two, snicker-snack.

Now I can sport this beautiful TokHaar-Kal cape, forged from molten obsidian to adorn my shoulders.

Did I really need to use all three instakills? Well, no. But hey, it's my last chance before they decay. I suppose if I didn't want to mess around with Nex, I could have tossed my extras at the Corporeal Beast, but...meh.
