"A New Crew"
Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero, taken from Hipsters of the Coast, by Zack Stella and Wizards of the Coast
It's Deep Magic Lore Month here in the CCL and for a lot of players, the defining storyline of Magic remains the Weatherlight Saga. This was the first time Creative attempted long-term storytelling, and the characters remain some of the most significant figures in Multiversal history. Unfortunately a lot of the cards originally created for those characters don't really hold up from a gameplay standpoint. Recently new versions have been created for several of them, but there's enough meat in these characters' storylines for further cards!
Phyrexia: Yawgmoth, Crovax, Greven, Tsabo Tavoc, Volrath, Davvol, Gix
- That's four cards, exactly two from each list.
- Make sure to include a rarity.
Special note: Due to this being a busy month for many people in terms of traveling, seeing family, working overtime, school/university finals, et cetera, a lot of deadlines have been extended. In this case I am explicitly planning to not begin the final round until the beginning of January!
