Magic: The Gathering: Dissension Theme Deck Reviews

Get the scoop on the new Magic the Gathering: Dissension theme decks with our reviews
Courtesy of Wizards

The final Ravnica: City of Guilds expansion set, Dissension, brought 180 new cards to the Magic: the Gathering card game of dueling wizards. It also brought three new color-combo guilds and Theme Decks for you to kick butt with! We review all three of 'em right here.

Magic: Dissension: Azorius Ascendant Deck Review

Blue and White team up in this awesome deck! It has incredible blockers to defend itself from ground attacks, lots of flyers for aerial assaults and hordes of cool powers that let it tap and untap creatures as well as draw cards. This deck can wipe the floor with the other two and it's even easy to play!

Azorius Ascendant Thumbs Up:

  • Solid defense and good flying attackers.
  • The cards combine really well!
  • Powers that let you draw cards and gain life.
  • The deck box holds cards properly.
  • Azorius Ascendant Thumbs Down:

  • Your opponents will whine as you beat them.
  • Azorius Ascendant Deck Rating:

    Magic: Dissension: Rakdos Bloodsport Deck Review

    Packed with Black and Red damage and destruction, this deck is full of vicious creatures, fire spells and it powers up with Hellbent if you run out of cards in your hand. It's weak in multiplayer games, but can tear a single opponent apart and is pretty easy to play.

    Rakdos Bloodsport Thumbs Up:

  • Black and Red = massive destruction!
  • Perfect for fast games with lots of action.
  • The deck box holds cards properly.
  • Rakdos Bloodsport Thumbs Down:

  • Sucks in multiplayer games.
  • You have to have no cards in your hand to use Hellbent.
  • Rakdos Bloodsport Deck Rating:

    Magic: Dissension: Simic Mutology Deck Review

    The Simic guild's crazy mutant monsters crawl out of this Blue and Green deck and then start growing! Using the Graft power, this deck can pump creatures up and give them weird powers. It's a bit low on creatures that can attack, so it's slow, but it makes huge monsters and is awesome in multiplayer duels.

    Simic Mutology Thumbs Up:

  • Lots of funky powers.
  • You can seriously power up your creatures.
  • The deck box actually holds cards properly.
  • Simic Mutology Thumbs Down:

  • Not many creatures.
  • It builds up slowly.
  • Simic Mutology Deck Rating:

    This is a topic about developers The only reason I wanted to post this is because I wanted to tell people that I am creating a game called Legacy Of Swords and a book called Legacy Of Swords, this will probably be for developers to chat and ask about things, as there is no separate chat rooms.
