Hi EOJ Fans! With the clock counting down for the release of SET 2 here in the US, we wanted to give you all a sneak peek at some of the great EOJ Theme Decks that Wizards of the Coast that will be releasing.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the theme decks, they are pre-constructed decks of 30 cards that offer specific strategies to the player. Not only do they offer a great selection of cards, but each comes with a Summoner’s Companion booklet that offers great content. All the Set 2 Theme Decks will now feature not only more in-depth stories about the EOJ universe, but also a full glossary of game terms, specific gameplay strategies and even card highlights to give players that extra edge. Here are some excerpts from some of the Set 2 Summoner’s Companions with more to come next week.
Till then, have a great weekend!
Among the ranks of the Bioliths are some of the most fearsome creatures in THE EYE OF JUDGMENT. The new cards in BIOLITH REBELLION SET 2 will make your Biolith-themed decks more potent than ever.
This engine of destruction is every evil genius’ must-have minion! Its awesome Attack and Defense Zones let you lock out four fields: negating enemy creatures’ Dodge attempts, crippling their Activation Cost and… when you’ve been hit by a Battle Master, you know you’ve been hit! 2×3 points of physical damage is going to hurt. If you need more power, cast Clare Wil’s Banner and deliver a shocking 10 point (un-dodge-able) coup de grace.
When summoned, Battle Master lets you take Scion, Biolith Lord from your library and put it into you hand. When you get Scion into play, the mayhem really starts – the Battle Master is now able to bring havoc to the board for just 2 mana!
PLAYING WITH FIRE
Fire boasts some incredible purveyors of mass-destruction but they don’t come cheap. BIOLITH REBELLION SET 2 features a number of tactical creatures that reduce the Summoning Cost.
Consider bringing these into play via Red Cubic followed by another Fire creature at reduced cost.
A mighty support creature, the Flameheart grants 2 points of Magic Protection to your
other allied creatures and reduces the Summoning Cost of allied Fire creatures by 1. In addition, it treats any Earth fields in front of it as Fire fields.
MAKING A SPLASH
Water creatures are tricky adversaries, capable of evading physical attacks and making enemy creatures do their bidding.They also have many abilities which give you greater deck control.
Like the other ‘warlords’, Admiral Belta supports creatures of his element with Invocation and Summoning Cost reduction. His unique power to fieldquake all Fire fields in your Resolution Phase is a real tsunami!
