Today, Wizards of the Coast announced that the wait is over, and 'Action''s identity has been decided. The plane of Mirrodin has been compleated, and New Phyrexia is born.
G/W tokens deck I was building for a while, and even moreso makes me question the future of decks like Boros. This guy can easily drop down in play by turns 4-5, and with a hardcasted trap as early as T3. It depends upon if aggro decks will gain enough power to get consistent T3 wins besides Kutholda, but it just seems like a ramp deck with Elesh Norn, Day of Judgment, Phyrexian Rebirth, Wall of Omens/Overgrown Battlement, and Awakening Zone will be able to dominate any aggressive format. Even if Elesh dies to a Journey or Go for the Throat, it's still a Wrath of God attached to a discard a kill spell spell. This guy is an absolute house.
The second part of the announcement is a special promotional video that shows off some pretty sweet artwork, some similar to previous cards from the plane of Mirrodin. At the end, the announcer also proclaims the return of Karn as a card in the set.
I look forward to seeing what else comes from Action. Become a fan of Yo Mama on FaceBook or follow me on Twitter to get the latest updates as announcements are made and more cards are spoiled. The time for New Phyrexia has come.
