This entry is part 66 of 79 in the series Rival's Duel

erdnHello and welcome to another another episode of Rival’s Duel. Well WoTC finally went and did it. In their latest scheme to kill Magic, WotC has taken a concept from unglued (the famously large B.F.M) and translated it into real, black bordered magic. Since the door has been opened for silver bordered cards to come to the “real world” (this door was actually opened in Future Sight with the card Barren Glory), we are taking a look at the un sets and considering which other ones we’d like to see in our EDH decks. We also go over the plethora of EMN legends and planewalkers spoiled so far. Which cards from the un-sets do you wish were in black bordered? Did we miss any hidden gems? give us a listen and let us know in the comments below. As always, full shownotes after the break.









Intro and EMN spoilers: So, let’s talk about Meld. We’re…let’s say… not convinced on this mechanic. Actually, we hate this. Like, make our eye twitch hate this. Fortunately, there are only 3 of them. It’s just that they wasted some great art on a dopey mechanic. With that being said, many of the legends in EMN are sweet (even the ones with the stupid meld mechanic), and we take time to drool over them.


Main topic: This episode was almost called: Rival’s Duel, Barely legal- So the “Un” sets are a great chance for wizards to do a bunch of zany things that would never work in serious magic. However, many of these cards could be fun if they existed, we take a look at some of the unglued and unhinged cards that we’d like to play (and a few that seem good on paper but would actually break the game in half).
