For the basics on the Magic: The Gathering card game, check out this review. Here we review the new powers, cards and Theme Decks in Coldsnap. Check it out!
Frozen Magic and Cool New Combos in Coldsnap
This new set brings back the Snow-Covered Lands
cards from the Ice Age
set, and covers creatures and artifacts in snow too! Plus, it has new Recover
and Cumulative Upkeep
powers. Here's the scoop.
Ripple - Play a Ripple card, look at the next four cards in your deck, if any of them are the same you can play them for free!
Recover - If a critter goes to the Graveyard and you have a card with the Recover ability there already, you can pay some Mana and put the card back in your hand. But if you don't, it's removed from play!
Cumulative Upkeep - Cards with this ability are powerful, but they cost something each turn, and the longer they're out the more they cost!
Snow - Snow cards don't do anything on their own, but other cards have abilities that only work if you have Snow cards.
Coldsnap Theme Deck Reviews
In the middle of an ice age
a bunch of armies
are fighting - some want to thaw
the ice, others want to freeze
the whole planet so their ice magic will get stronger! Here's a look at the four new Theme Decks
and what they do. Click them for the 411 on which is the strongest!
Aurochs Stampede - Huge stampeding beasts trample your opponent flat.
Beyond the Grave - Animate the dead to win the duel!
Kjeldoran Cunning - Knights, soldiers, heroes and giants stomp your opponent's deck flat.
Snowscape - Use the power of ice magic to freeze your opponent solid.
Magic: The Gathering: Coldsnap - Cool or Just Chilly?
The new powers in this set are great! Recover
is an awesome
is great as long as you use lots of it. Cumulative Upkeep
gets lame fast, but it lets you use powerful cards for a few turns. The Snow
cards are solid and the best thing is that you can add these new cards to any deck
easily! Some of the powers can be confusing for new players, so you should check out the basic game
before you load up on Coldsnap
cards, but they're definitely cool enough to duel with. Oh, and Dark Depths
equals indestructible legendary 20/20 flying black Marit Lage
