Hey guys and gals! It’s time for another brilliantly written edition of Rapid Fire! ….. <cough>…moderately well written?
-I really should have bought 2 boxes of Zendikar. Or at the very least, a box and a fat pack. I’ve found out the hard way that Full Art Lands + Expedition Lands = Sold Out. I guess I should just be happy that I was able to walk into Off the Wall games and buy a box without a preorder on the release day.
-As for the box..My notable pulls were: Ob Nixilis, Ulamog (or Newlamog as Shawn is fond of calling it), Canopy Vista, Cinder Glade, Shambling Vent, Greenwarden of Murasa, Oblivion Sower, Bring to Light, Ruinous Path, a foil Omnath, Locus of Rage and a couple of foil full art lands. Not too shabby. I really just wanted the Ulamog for my Tron deck, so I was very happy with the box.
-Has anyone seen the new Heroes series, Heroes Reborn? No? Lucky. Of all of the super powers they could have gone with, they basically copy the original series’ characters’ powers, and then add in some whack-a-doo power where the character draws a sword and is teleported into a video game. Yeah. You know what my power is? Seeing into the future…you know what’s not there? This show.
-Am I the only 35 year old that watches Teen Titans Go? I don’t care..that show is funny as hell.
-Dusted off the Playstation One and started a new game of Final Fantasy V. Forgot how addicting that game is..if I only I had more time to devote to it. Gone are the days of being a teenager with no responsibilities who can sit around playing an RPG for 9 hours a day. Damn real world.
-Anyone see Fear the Walking Dead? Terrible. Just terrible. Spin-off cash grab.
-Finally got to see what a Splinter Twin deck can do..too bad I was on the receiving end of it. Unfortunately for me, total beat-down in game 1. Unfortunately for him, I played a Kilnmouth Dragon and flashed an entire hand of dragons, making it a 17/17 beatstick in game 2. Then game 3 happened and made that beat-down I suffered in game 1 look like a friendly massage. Stupid infinite combo.<Sigh>…I’ll always have game 2…
That’s it for this edition of Rapid Fire! Thanks for reading and as always, feel free to leave us a comment below!
