We’re back with our next playtest for Magic 2010, and this time it’s a battle of ancient enemies. My base-White We Are Legion will be met by Sam’s Death’s Minions, a Black midrange deck with a splash of Green. With life and death literally in the balance, which deck will come out on top?
“This set,” proclaimed director of Magic R&D Aaron Forsythe when announcing Magic 2010, “is Magic at its most pure.” That was no trivial endorsement, but rather the end result of a long and arduous process wherein Magic looked to rediscover a little bit of its soul it had lost along the way. Magic 2010, you see, wasn’t just an innovation- it was a restoration.
