It’s official: We’ve again entered the “lame duck” phase of Magic Online, where the online world lags behind the release of a new set. Usually this lagging is not as big of a deal for Block as it is for, say, Standard. However, the third set of a block always leads to the Block Constructed Pro Tour, this year set in Barcelona, Spain. This deprivation of MTGO for testing is always detrimental, but more on that later. Now, we’re battling through another Daily with the current Block format which is relevant for at least a few more weeks:

So, let’s talk about Avacyn Restored in an ISD Block Constructed context. Or, rather, let me tell you why I’m not going to talk about Avacyn Restored this week. Pro Tour – Avacyn Restored is in a couple of weeks, and I have friends who are going (sadly having lost myself to one of those friends in the finals of a PTQ). Anything I talk about today will be tainted by my knowledge of decks that I’ve been sworn to secrecy over. Since I want the hometown boys to win, I’m going to talk about Avacyn Restored next time instead. I’m sorry for the radio silence that everyone in the Magic community is giving Block right now, but the Pro Tour is kind of a big deal. I will tell you this, though: Boros did not get weaker with Avacyn Restored.
Next time, I promise!
Thanks for reading.
