Build a Magic 2013 Intro Pack Contest: Part 4
While the conversation was lively and spirited, in the end there could be only… two? That’s right, our last poll let you, the readers, pick the two rare cards for our Goblin Artisans “M13” Intro Pack build, and as our deck develops it will be doing so on the back of the Raiding Pirate!
Given that the theme of the deck is Pirates!, it was perhaps a foregone conclusion that the Raiding Pirate was going to make the cut. With 89% of the vote, it was perhaps more surprising that some folks didn’t take it (Unsightly Gorgon claimed second place). With such overwhelming support, we’ll call this one the foil premium rare. That, of course, leaves the deck’s other card, and that was far less certain.
Nearly half of you voted for either Predictive Emulation or Mutilate, but every single card earned at least a couple of votes. In the end, readers liked the “loot your opponent’s library” feel of Predictive Emulation best, and that will be our second rare card. Great job, everyone!
Now, on to the nitty-gritty of filling out the rest of the deck. Today we’re looking at creatures, and again we’ll have two polls: one for commons, and one for uncommons. We’ll use the top vote-getters in each category to help flesh out the deck. Each name in the poll is hyperlinked to the card art, so you’re just a click away from seeing any card. We’ve omitted a few that didn’t work with this colour scheme, but the rest are up to you!
Don’t forget to let us know your thoughts in the comments below, and you’ll be automatically entered to win one of the two prize packs of a real M13 Intro Pack and trio of boosters!
