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.

Lofty Heights Theme Deck Review

The Lofty Heights Theme Deck is an all-Blue deck, which means it has lots of flying creatures, ways to draw extra cards, counter your opponent's spells and even take control of their cards. It's a bit slow, but has good blockers to defend itself early on. It takes a bit of skill to play this deck properly, but it's really powerful if you play it right, it's the strongest of the 9th Edition Theme Decks. Each deck also comes with Mahamoti Djinn and Archivist cards for serious power!

Lofty Heights Thumbs Up:

  • Draw cards like crazy.
  • Solid ground blockers and great flyers.
  • You can counter your opponent's cards, or take control of them!
  • The deck box actually holds cards properly!
  • Lofty Heights Thumbs Down:

  • Starts out slow.
  • Requires some skill to play properly.
  • Lofty Heights Deck Rating:

    World Aflame Theme Deck Review

    The World Aflame Theme Deck is an all-Red deck, which means it's all about attack spells and big creatures. This is a great deck for new players because it's easy to play with strong attacking creatures and [kwlink]cards[/kwlink] for blowing up your opponent. It only has 10 creatures though and none of them fly. The rare cards aren't very powerful either, they're a Magnivore, which is a weird creature, and Wildfire, a card that wipes out creatures and land at the same time.

    World Aflame Thumbs Up:

  • Easy to play.
  • Lots of Sorcery cards for blowing things up.
  • The deck box actually holds cards properly!
  • World Aflame Thumbs Down:

  • Only 10 creatures in the whole deck.
  • No flying creatures!
  • World Aflame Deck Rating:

    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.
