Sound the trumpets!
The megalopolis is back!
One one fine weekend in September, a friend and I hiked far into uncharted lands for Magic’s Return to Ravnica pre-release event. We each pledged a guild. I applied for the Azorius Senate, beholder of justice and law. He joined the ranks of Rakdos, bringer of pain.
We played epic games nonstop till the late evening. Even though I didn’t fare as well as he did, I was able to summon my Utvara Hellkite in a couple of matches. It always brought me a smile watching my opponent quiver in its wake.
The pre-release was exceptionally fun. I saw a few of the people I’d met at Friday Night Magic, and was surprised by a long-ago friend attending as a referee. Magic events just keep on getting better.
