Read a review of the Magic The Gathering: Fifth Dawn trading card game expansion set from Wizards of the Coast! - Page 1

Magic The Gathering, from Wizards of the Coast, wraps up the Mirrodin storyline with lots of action, betrayal and giant gobs of energy. The 411 on the story and the new powers is right here. But, now that the cards are in stores, how do they rate? We review the Magic The Gathering: Fifth Dawn expansion set and pre-constructed decks right here. Check it out!

Magic The Gathering: Fifth Dawn Pre-Constructed Decks

There are four of these decks with the Fifth Dawn expansion and here's the breakdown of what's hot, what's not and what'll win in a duel!

  • Special Forces Deck Review
  • Stampede Deck Review
  • Sunburst Deck Review

    Magic The Gathering: Fifth Dawn Expansion Set Review

    Ok, you've got the 411 on the decks, but how fun is the set? Simple - it's hella good fun! Fifth Dawn makes it easy to play five-colors, which is a great way to slow the game down and use all those funky cards that you can't play in two-color decks. More cards = more options = more fun!

    More cards also means more combos for tournament players to abuse - the Krark-Clan Ironworks is a nice start if you're looking for an infinite mana/fireball combo.

    Magic The Gathering: Fifth Dawn Expansion Set Highlights

    The best part about the Fifth Dawn expansion set has to be the artwork. Check these cards out cuz they're so cool looking they should be posters!

    Magic The Gathering: Fifth Dawn Expansion Set Bummers

    The biggest bummer about Fifth Dawn is that the coolest cards, the Sunburst cards, only work in five-color decks. It's also a little heavy on combos so, if you're playing against a dork they might pull some stupid combo and blow you out of the water on turn three rather than playing a fun game.

    Fifth Dawn Card Game Expansion Set Thumbs Up:

  • Five-color decks rock.
  • Lots of artifacts, which can go in any deck.

    Fifth Dawn Card Game Expansion Set Thumbs Down:

  • Heavy on the combos so expect lots of decks that'll knock you out early.
  • Sunburst artifacts only work in five-color decks.

    Fifth Dawn Card Game Expansion Set Rating: 4
