Gary checked out the five new Magic: The Gathering Theme Decks for the 9th Edition set! From the Army of Justice deck to the World Aflame, they're all in stores now so check out these reviews to see which deck suits your dueling style.

Army of Justice Theme Deck Review

The Army of Justice Theme Deck is an all-White deck, which means it has lots of soldiers, angels and defensive cards. There are a lot of combo cards in this deck but not a lot of huge creatures or devastating attack spells. It takes skill to win with this deck so it's not that great for new players. Each deck does come with a Righteousness and a Glorious Anthem as the rare cards.

Army of Justice Thumbs Up:

  • Glorious Anthem is a great card!
  • The deck box actually holds cards properly!
  • Army of Justice Thumbs Down:

  • Not much attack strength.
  • Requires some skill to use properly.
  • Army of Justice Deck Rating:

    Custom Creature Theme Deck Review

    The Custom Creature Theme Deck is an all-Green deck, which means it has lots of mana and powerful creatures! This is a great deck for new players because it's really easy to play. It doesn't have any flying creatures, which can be a problem though. Each deck also comes with a Verduran Enchantress for drawing extra cards and an Emperor Crocodile for huge stompy power!

    Custom Creature Thumbs Up:

  • Easy to play.
  • Huge creatures and powerful enchantments.
  • The deck box actually holds cards properly!
  • Custom Creature Thumbs Down:

  • It can't do anything but attack with big creatures.
  • No flying creatures!
  • Custom Creature Deck Rating:

    Dead Again Theme Deck Review

    The Dead Again Theme Deck is an all-Black deck, which means it's all about evil monsters, bringing cards back from the graveyard and destroying your opponent's creatures. It has a good mix of flying creatures and ground creatures and tons of ways to wipe out your opponent's big creatures. Watch out though, lots of the cards damage you when you play them. The rare cards are incredible, the best out of all five [kwlink]Theme Decks[/kwlink]. You get a powerful Nightmare creature and the deadly Underworld Dreams enchantment that hurts your opponent when they draw cards.

    Dead Again Thumbs Up:

  • Strong deck.
  • The Nightmare rare card is awesome!
  • Can wipe out powerful creatures easily.
  • The deck box actually holds cards properly!
  • Dead Again Thumbs Down:

  • Lots of the cards cause you damage when you play them.

    Would you Enter a Magic Tournament?

    • Absolutely, It's a great game.
    • No way, Magic is for dorks.
    • Maybe, if I could win stuff.
    • Only if I can use a cheat code.
