Mirrodi Besieged cards which are better than I thought

Posted by Mr Z on Thursday, February 24th 2011 at 09:55

Finally got to play with some of the Mirrodin Beseieded cards in my multiplayer group. There was a lot to like about some cards.

Sangromancer
Sangromancer
- This guy (girl!) is insane. In one multiplayer game I went from losing half my life to almost twice what I lost in two turns just through natural attrition

Thopter Assembly
Thopter Assembly
- As a creature maker, this guy is pretty sweet. I opened 2 of these in a sealed pool and it was pretty obnoxious.

On the drawing board right now is a red based metalcraft artifact sacrifice deck featuring Kuldotha Phoenix
Kuldotha Phoenix
, Galvanic Blast
Galvanic Blast
, Furnace Celebration
Furnace Celebration
and Molten Psyche
Molten Psyche
. Also underconsideration is adding red to The Tezz for Molten Psyche
Molten Psyche

End of an Era

It is with great sadness that I am forced to anounce that Merieke Ri Berit
Merieke Ri Berit
has stepped down as General for my commander deck. The past few weeks have not been kind to her and it is time for a change.

Her place will taken by another bad-ass Esper Lady, Sharuum the Hegemon

. I am looking forward to what the future will bring for this new deck.

Besieged in action

So Mirrodin Beseiged has been out for almost a week and I have my hands on a good chunk of cards.

With any new sets, the first thing I do is look at all of my active Decks and see which cards from the new set are better than what is currently in the list. Performing this check lead to the following tweaks.

Exploring Elspeth

The big change with this list is the replacement of the allies with a mix of Besieged Critters. White Sun's Zenith
White Sun's Zenith
takes over Conqueror's Pledge
Conqueror's Pledge
and Phyrexian Rebirth is preferred over the World Queller
World Queller
and Luminarch Ascension
Luminarch Ascension

  • 2 x Hero of Bladehold
  • 3 x Leonin Skyhunter
  • 3 x Mirran Crusader
