Eldritch Moon Sealed, what did you play this prerelease?
Hey everyone, creating this thread to chronicle the decks that were made over the past weekend. Hopefully we'll be getting a deck builder tool to showcase the decks that you all make every day but for now we have to use the magical written word to talk about the latest tech.
A bit of background, I don't really like Eldritch Moon. I think the set is sort of meh, but I guess I need to lower my expectations for cards that are being printed in this new 2 set per block meta. (Wizards please reprint the off color fetches and give us a better Liliana :D ) However I really enjoyed shadows! It was a refreshing change after the BFZ - eldrazi heavy block - and gave a much needed buff to my favorite archetype, white weenie.
So! What did I play over the prerelease?! RB Vampires! A bit of a departure from what I normally play, I love playing Selesnya and I really wanted to play a Bant deck but unfortunately the only mythics that I pulled were Ulrich of the Krallenhorde, Tree of Perdition, and Decimator of the Provinces (Tamiyo, you will be mine). The guy next to me pulled a prerelease Gisela in a kit that I passed to him so I was a little salty when I started building. I started off with a GR werewolves deck but my green pool was really meh, and my red had no werewolves or wolves so I pivoted to RB with all my vampires. The biggest reason I moved in was due to the fact that I had 2 Stensia Banquets and 3 of Olivia's Dragoon which was a card that I was not originally impressed with. As it turns out, having a madness enabler that doubles as a really efficient flyer can do wonders.
I'll post pictures of the entire deck later tonight, I liked it but I think GW is still the strongest in limited even with all these new Eldritch additions. I ended up going 2-1, losing to a GW deck :) Great prerelease on the whole, but not as good as SOI imo!
Now, let's see those pulls and your decks!
