Magic: The Gathering: Odyssey :: Trading Card Set Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006

Looking for 350 new ways to whup your buddy's butt at Magic? Power up with your Threshold or nail him a second time with Flashback - these new powers and more are waiting for you in Odyssey.

If you're new to Magic: The Gathering, here's the 411: It's a card game of dueling wizards - you and a friend each play wizards and duel with cards and strategies to see who stomps who. For more info catch the full review here.

Magic's latest expansion (a bunch of new cards) is called Odyssey. It has some cool new tricks, powerful cards and a new story.

The story is about a giant tournament of champions contest a powerful dude is putting together where all the toughest wizards can get together and compete. There's a bunch of loot up for grabs and whoever makes it all the way through the contest, without decorating the arena with his brains, gets to keep the whole haul. It's kinda like Pokemon, but without the cute 'n cuddly bits.

Odyssey

New monsters like Kamahl can really pound the stuffing out of your opponent but my fave card is the Krosan Beast, the biggest, baddest squirrel ever.

One of the coolest things about the Odyssey expansion is the official website. Check it out at MagicOdyssey.com to watch a movie clip and find tournament league info, wallpapers, a screensaver and more stuff than you can shake a giant squirrel at.

Thumbs Up:

  • Cool new abilities.
  • The biggest squirrel ever.
  • Incredible art.
  • Cool video on the website.

Thumbs Down:

  • Weak artifacts.
  • Lame new lands.
