2 Fall of the Hammer
3 Scouring Sands
4 Pillar of Light
2 Lightning Strike
4 Hopeful Eidolon

The “curve”:

Yeah, not really a curve just a tower of power!

I wish I had more to offer. But it is the holiday season and I am already worn out. Whose idea was it to have so many holidays in one month? I think I need to write a letter to someone and voice my concerns.

Section 2: The Speculation

With so few cards spoiled for the next set, “Fate Reforged”, I thought I would speculation/wish for a new common.

100% fake card
buckler beetle
Pure speculation

Yes, I totally ripped off a Yugioh card.

With the mechanic spoiled, I feel this is a decent representation of what Bolster can be used on. Turn one [c]Gladecover Scout[/c], turn two Buckler Beetle. Now you can either have a 2/3 on the field or a 3/3 hexproof. I love that idea. It is like [c]Bond Beetle[/c] but for {G}{G}.

Let me know what you think!
