Wizards just released a new product line that will help you break into the Friday Night Magic tournament scene.
It’s time to talk about the Mirrodin Besieged Event Decks, which will be available for sale (MSRP $24.99) on February 25. That’s plenty of time to get one in time for Mirrodin Besieged Game Day, which is March 5-6.
I am personally very excited about more products such as these in the future. I like the direction of their theme deck series. I own all the Duel Decks and look forward to more products like these in the future. I would say if you are going to a new store and don’t know the meta game, picking up one of these two decks wouldn’t be that bad of an idea. The red deck, “Into The Breach” is actually not that far off of a similar deck that tore up the Pro Tour Paris scene a few weeks ago. It uses the new Battle Cry mechanic to make a lot of little cheap or free creatures attack for near lethal by turn 4. The infect deck that is available gives you a pretty good shell to work with if you are more interested in a control game. Both are fully capable decks, that also includes a sideboard so you can easily just enter the tournament with one.
