Innistrad!

I had been going to post a much longer report of the whole tournament experience, but remembered in time that no one cares about a lot of the details but me. = ) So, short version:

I went to the Midnight Madness prerelease tournament for Innistrad, because if you're going to play in a prerelease tournament for a gothic horror Magic setting, midnight is the time to do it.

I opened a couple of werewolves (yay!) and some really awesome zombies (yay!), but not enough total zombies to make playing zombies worthwhile (boo!). But hey, I really wanted to play werewolves anyway, and I did manage to put into play and transform one of my werewolves, and a good time was had by all.

Overall, I did awful. 1 win, 1 draw, 2 losses. But I had fun, and I opened a bunch of cool cards, including one of the ones that's theoretically worth money (I am skeptical about it's long-term value...sell now, hope to rebuy when cheap?)

I think the set is great fun, and the theme is way better than the one from the last block. I love the number of cards that you can look at and immediately spot the horror trope, story reference, or whatever. I am tempted to buy more, or at least make an effort to play in a bunch of drafts with it, thereby gaining more cards and playing with the set more. It's the most fun Magic has been for me since Rise of the Eldrazi and its towering otherdimensional Cthulhu juggernauts.
