Spellshaper, spellshaper, shape me a spell...
It's twenty after eleven. While I'm waiting for the 3000m men's steeplechase at the Olympic trials, I though I'd bust out the Spellshaper review. The damn race doesn't start until 12:45. Why am I waiting for the 3000m men's steeplechase? Just what is the 3000m men's steeplechase? A co-worker has a brother who is trying to qualify for the Olympics in the 3000m yadda yadda, so I thought I'd try to catch it, since this is the closest I'll ever get to be personally involved with the Olympics. I believe the steeplechase involves jumping over big puddles.
Prophecy has five Spellshapers that cover all the colors. They are all 3/3 creatures that cost five mana, three colorless and two colored. The special ability costs some more mana and the discarding of two cards, plus tapping the Spellshaper.
Magenta, the Lion
For four mana, two of them white, you can destroy every creature on the board except for Magenta. Personally, I don't think Wrath of God needs to be a 3/3 creature.
Alexi, Zephyr Mage
Greel, Mind Raker
Latulla, Keldon Overseer
Jolrael, Empress of Beasts
Those are the Spellshapers. Like all the big cards in Prophecy, they're not great in Constructed, but are broken in Limited.
I'm still upset that Ric Flair isn't in the first set of WCW cards. They print Disco Inferno, but not the Man? No wonder WCW sucks. By the way, if any of you out there are playing this game, Bret Hart is broken. Bret Hart + Larry Zybisco (oh, I don't care if it's spelled wrong) is insanely broken.
The X-man movie rocks. Go check it out.
Next up are the Enchant Lands. I plan on finishing up the Prophecy review just before Invasion comes out.
Remember to stop and smell the daisies along the Path of Rage.
