Card of the Day - Monday, December 24, 2012

The Ultimate Nightmare of Wizards of the Coast® Customer Service Unglued uncommon. The flavor text of The Ultimate Nightmare... is no longer accurate, both because the phone number has changed and because Game Support is only on duty until 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time. In the United States and Canada, (800) 324-6496 will work. Outside those countries, use (425) 204-8069, go to wizards.custhelp.com, or talk to @wizards_cs on Twitter!

Card of the Day - Friday, December 14, 2012

Tsabo Tavoc Invasion rare. In the storyline, Tsabo Tavoc gets killed by Gerrard Capashen. That doesn't work perfectly in card form, because Tsabo Tavoc is pretty good at fighting other Legendary Creatures.

Card of the Day - Thursday, December 13, 2012

Wrecking Ball Dissension common. The name "Wrecking Ball" is actually a pun. Because instead of being one of those giant metal balls that knocks down buildings, it's the kind of "ball" you have in a ballroom. But because it's Rakdos, the ballroom ends up getting knocked down anyway.

Card of the Day - Wednesday, December 12, 2012

Avatar of Discord Dissension rare. Note that Avatar of Discord requires that its caster actually have two cards to discard. If it said "When Avatar of Discord enters the battlefield, discard two cards," then you could get away with casting it as the last card in your hand. But you can't!

Card of the Day - Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Rix Maadi Guildmage Return to Ravnica uncommon. The "Rix Maadi" in the name of Rix Maadi Guildmage means that the guildmage is associated with Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace, the Dissension card that represents the Rakdos guild hall.

Card of the Day - Monday, December 10, 2012

Rakdos, Lord of Riots Return to Ravnica mythic rare. The Rakdos Cult is made up of Rings, which are informal groups of people who pay tribute to Rakdos. But the only real organization is that Rakdos is the undisputed leader.

Card of the Day - Friday, December 07, 2012

Phantom General Return to Ravnica uncommon. From a flavor standpoint, there's no difference between a creature represented by a token and a creature represented by a card. But for the purposes of Phantom General, ghosts mean tokens. Just for this one card, though!

Card of the Day - Thursday, December 06, 2012

Skyline Predator Return to Ravnica uncommon. You can tell the difference between a drake and a dragon in Magic art by counting the legs. Dragons have four legs (and wings), while drakes are missing the front pair. Of course, if it's a creature card, you also have the option of looking at the type line.

Card of the Day - Wednesday, December 05, 2012

Downsize Return to Ravnica common. The creature being shrunk in Downsize looks like it could be an Indrik, as seen in Dissension as Indrik Stomphowler and in Return to Ravnica as Towering Indrik.

Card of the Day - Tuesday, December 04, 2012

Chromatic Lantern Return to Ravnica rare. The power of the Chromatic Lantern is shown in its art: it appears to be casting off multiple colors of light at once. In fact, what it's actually casting off is mana! And also regular light, because you never know when you'll want a good lantern.

Card of the Day - Monday, December 03, 2012

Avenging Arrow Return to Ravnica common. Not all cards in Return to Ravnica belong clearly to one guild or another. Just because this Avenging Arrow came from a Selesnya archer doesn't mean there couldn't be others that were from the Azorius. They also like punishing wrongdoers, after all!
