What can you do with your now Banned Mythic Rare M:TG Card?

January 15th, 2017

What can you do with your Mythic Rare Magic: the Gathering card that was just banned from tournament play? White Wizard Games recommends you send them that no longer valid card to them in exchange for a free copy of Epic Card Game.

When Wizards of the Coast announced a new list of banned and restricted cards from Standard play on January 9th, Rob Dougherty and Darwin Kastle of White Wizard Games — both Magic the Gathering Pro Tour Champions and inductees into the Magic Pro Tour Hall of Fame — decided to offer an exchange deal for two of the rare cards banned from play. Emrakul, the Promised End, a mythic rare card which sold for around $20 was banned for being too “scarily powerful”, facing little resistance and ending games too quickly. “She was the world-ending, all-powerful monster she was in the story, which was too much for Standard,” reads the announcement from Wizards of the Coast. Smuggler’s Copter, a rare card that sold for about $10, was banned because it “shows up in too many decks, diminishing the format’s diversity,” according to WotC.

In an announcement about the promotion, Nathan Davis of White Wizard Games writes, “When your $10 rare gets banned from Standard, that is a bad feeling. When your $20 mythic rare gets banned, that is an even worse feeling.”

Brazilian players who purchased a copy of any of the banned cards between December 10th and January 9th at Bazar de Bagdá, one of Brazil’s largest MtG game stores, may return those cards to the store and be refunded in store credit. Willy Edel, owner of Bazar de Bagdá, is also a Pro Tour Player and in the Magic the Gathering Hall of Fame.

Magic: The Gathering Puzzle Quest adds PVP and Color Mastery

August 2nd, 2016

Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest gets a brand new update (v1.5.8) for both Apple and Google Play users.

In this update, the highly anticipated PVP Events will finally make its way to Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest. The Nodes of Power PVP event has commenced and runs for 48 hours, twice a week.

They have also added a new major feature, called Color Mastery. In a nutshell, Color Mastery is a point system, per color. Color Mastery is accumulated by mastering cards.

  • You accumulate points on each card in your deck at the end of every fight.
    ? Only cards in your deck get points, so you’ll want to mix it up to master as many cards as possible!
  • Each card requires different amounts of points to be Mastered ­ few for Commons, lots for Mythics!
  • When you Master a card, you gain points in that card’s color in your Color Mastery chart.
    ? Colorless cards give you small amounts of points in every color
    ? Dual­color cards give you points in both colors
  • When you enter an event (such as the Nodes of Power event), you will be set in a tier depending your Color Mastery, from Bronze to Gold.
    ? The event’s color determines which Mastery the game looks at ­ for example, a Blue­ only event would only consider Blue Color Mastery.
    ? Events that do not have color restrictions take your entire Color Mastery into account.
  • Each Tier in an event gives different rewards, and higher tiers give better rewards!
