Raid O’clock

Introduction: Answering the Call of the Wild might sound like widdling outdoors behind the woodshed to you, if so you’re in the right place! Now, I know what you’re thinking, Call of the Wild isn’t a modern legal card, it’s enough to make you flip that table isn’t it? Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the birth of Impromptu Raid.

Impromptu Raid let’s you cheat out a big menacing fatty turns before you would ever have the ability, while at the same time giving you instant value since your creatures do things such as gain you life, find ghost quarters to fight eldrazi, completely devasate pesky shocklands or make your opponent need a swatter.

The poster child for this in standard is of course, Demonic Pact.

Bruce’s Combat Step- Pauper League

PauperHey folks! I hope you have started 2016 off well and are in full  swing for the new year.  I want to apologize for not adding much to the site  for a while.  It’s been a slow start to the year for me, but I’m getting things back in line and am starting to get back into the business of writing again.  With that said, I wanted to add my two cents to the recent combat phase that the boys were going on about because I too have been battling some Magic.
