Opus IX Set Review Pt. 7 – Light & Dark!

And now we enter the twilight portion of my set review, with a contrasted look at Light and Dark. Will it be these new cards time to shine? Or will the be overshadowed by many meta mainstays such as Yuri, Veritas, and Kam’lanaut?

As always, I’ll be looking at these for the constructed format only, and we’ll be doing both these elements in one go as it brings us to a staggering 4 (yes, FOUR) cards to look at in one go.

More after the jump!

Opus IX Set Review Pt. 6 – Water!

Hey guys, it’s time for the 6th part of my set review, this time we’ll be diving in and taking a look at Water! Are there some new strategies bubbling below the surface, or will Water instead prop itself up on Leila & Viking for another set? Will the new Porom make the waves everyone is expecting?

Sink your teeth in after the jump!

Opus IX Set Review Pt. 5 – Lightning!

Hey guys, it’s time for the fifth, and not-final part of my set review, this time I’m gonna be looking at Lightning. Has lightning finally managed to break free of it’s mono prison? Are we going to be shocked by lines of play that don’t involve just blowing up things that are active? Or are we going to be sorely disappointed by a set where lightning lacks the spark to get going? You know the drill by now, this will be a purely constructed look at the cards – that means no limited or sealed opinions here!

Opus IX Set Review Pt. 4 – Earth!

Hey guys, it’s time for Part 4 of the set review! After Wind it’s time to bring it back down to Earth and look at one of the historically less exciting elements, and see if there’s been a fundamental change in the terrain for this element in Opus IX! As always, I will only be covering constructed play, if you want content for limited formats, these boys gotchu.

More after the read more bit. Which is below. Press it!

Opus IX Set Review Pt. 3 – Wind!

Hey guys, it’s time for Part 3 of my set review, this time we’re going to be looking at the new Wind stuff we got in Opus IX? Have any of them blown me away? Or will I just breeze right by them and not play wind for another set?

As always, no ratings, no sealed/limited, no items, fox only, Final Destination.

Let’s go!

Opus IX Set Review Pt. 2 – Ice!

It’s time for the second part of the set review, this time we’re gonna be looking at the cool new Ice cards in Opus IX! As always, I won’t be providing ratings for them, and I won’t be looking at the cards from a sealed or limited viewpoint – that content is better handled and explained elsewhere!

Let’s go!

Opus IX Set Review Pt. 1 – Fire!

Hey guys,

I’m looking at getting these churned out a bit quicker this time, but after the results of the poll (thanks to all that voted) it looks like you guys want multiple reviews rather than one big article, so let’s get the ball rolling with Fire. As always, not going to bother with ratings and I won’t be talking about draft, title or sealed (you got Jeff’s articles over at the FFTCG Crystarium for that) so let’s get on with it.
