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. 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.

Opus VIII Set Review Pt. 7 – Light & Dark

Let’s have a look at the last 4 cards of a set, that hardly warrants its own article because let’s be realistic, it’s 4 cards.

Light and Dark Cards are historically extremely impactful, so let’s have a look and see if that is the case in Opus VIII.

Opus VIII Set Review Pt.6 – Earth

Hi guys – time to start rounding off my coverage of Opus VIII with the last major review of the set – earth. Perhaps I should have done earth earlier, to get some good groundwork down?

I’ve had a couple of people voice concerns that I’ve missed the boat or taken too long with the Opus VIII set review series, and while I’m thankful for any and all feedback, I just wanted to take a moment to address this & say that the reason that my reviews have come out significantly later than other content creators was that I didn’t want to make snap judgments about any cards, and I also wanted to make sure I’d had a chance to play all the cards in the set before making a judgement. Regardless, I will try and be a bit quicker for next set, if time allows. The last thing I want to do is to provide any rushed content or anything I wouldn’t consider up to par.

Less tarrying though, let’s get on with it!

Opus VIII Set Review Pt.5 – Ice

It’s a pretty warm day today, let’s cool off by looking at some Ice cards. After this, we’ve only got Earth and Light & Dark to look at, and I plan to do those sometime next weekend (or over the weekend depending on how things pan out!)

Let’s go!
