Hello everyone! Kenny Wisdom here, fresh off of the NAIC. I had a great time in Columbus, and I hope you all did as well. Special thanks to everyone who came up to me to have something signed, take a picture, or just to chat. I always enjoy interacting with the community, especially fans of SixPrizes.
As great as the NAIC was, it’s time to look ahead to the biggest tournament of the year: the World Championship. It should go without saying that Worlds is always an incredibly fun event, truly the crown jewel of the tournament season. The biggest prizes, all the best players, and, most importantly for the sake of the subject of this article: new cards! Celestial Storm will be legal for the first time at the World Championship, and I can’t wait to see what the greatest minds in the game manage to bring to the table.
I may not be playing in Worlds this year, but all I’ve done since getting home from the NAIC is look at the setlist and think about the format. The set not being on PTCGO yet makes testing a pain, but I know a lot of players are testing in person or over Skype with proxies. Today, I’m going to go over a few cards from the set that interest me the most, as well as talk about some fundamentals for evaluating new cards. All of this information obviously comes very early in the testing stages, but I think we’ve stumbled upon some solid interactions already.
