And I'm back with another post. Sorry for the delay, finals are keeping me busy (especially an international marketing plan). Today, I return to discuss a new MTG card from the return of Planechase. The card is none other than Time Distortion.
The last Planechase introduced us to Plane cards, where the battlefield was modified based on the plane that was active. Planes were each of the worlds seen in the MTG game, and players had a chance to take part in them during a game. Of course, Planechase is a casual game in which two or more players can do battle. Planes switch constantly, so it makes the dynamic quite unique.
But this new edition introduces a new card known as Phenomenon. These cards are similar to planes, but represent events that happen in planes rather than having them be actual worlds. So if you thought Planes were a unique way to have the battle change, Phenomenon cards now are a new way to affect players in these duels.
So far, this is the only Phenomenon card out. However, I'm sure more are to come as we still have plenty of time until the next release in 2012. But until then, we can only wonder how else these new cards can affect Planechase games. But from what I'm seeing, it's going to be interesting.
