Eldritch Moon Midnight Prerelease

Something salty this way comes my friends! Eldritch Moon Prerelease is upon us, and with it comes tons of new cards for us to brew with, compete with, and most of all, have fun with. I attended the midnight launch of Eldritch Moon at my LGS Jack’s on Queen. Below I have a link to my sealed pool.

The Deck

So in my pool I had a very poor selection of bombs. My prerelease promo was Coax from the Blind Eternities and that would have been useful if I pulled any eldrazi cards, but alas I did not. So without further adue, here’s the list!

1x Borrowed Malevolence
1x Dead Weight
1x Terrarion
1x Guardian of Pilgrims
1x Olivia’s Dragoon
1x Repel the Abominable
1x Borrowed Grace
1x Cryptolith Fragment
2x Desperate Sentry
1x Oath of Liliana
1x Survive the Night
1x Thalia, Heretic Cathar
1x Gisa’s Bidding
2x Haunted Dead
2x Spectral Reserves
1x Tenacity
1x Campaign of Vengeance
2x Certain Death
1x Subjugator Angel
10x Plains
7x Swamp

So as you can see, my deck was kind of weak. Thalia is a great card, but in a format where removal is prime, she didn’t stick around for long. Being able to jam out tokens with Spectral Reserves and Haunted Dead was too much for some to handle. Coupled with cards like Tenacity, Borrowed Grace, and Campaign of Vengeance, tokens can be quite a lethal strategy.

I ended up going 3-1 with this beauty of a deck, really taking advantage of Campaign of Vengeance. Ended up placing 5th in the event. I managed to do some sick trades and scored a date stamped Mausoleum Wanderer and date stamped Spell Queller for my blue/white spirits standard deck. It just so happened that after I acquired these cards, I was given my partici-packs, and it just so happens that the two rares in the two partici-packs were Mausoleum Wanderer and Spell Queller. So now my standard deck is 100% complete and we will see how that goes on friday at FNM!

Until next time, stay salty my friends.
