10 Cards That You Didn’t Know Forge Had

Merry Christmas.

10 – The planeswalkers Ajani Vengeant and Jace Beleren. Ajani is a red-white powerhouse and Jace lets you draw cards or deck your opponent. (Yes, I cheated and mentioned two cards, so sue me :)

9 – Time Walk, yes you abuse the computer with this classic, and costly, card. (Funny note, at first Richard Garfield wrote this card to say “Your opponent losses his next turn”. One player came running up to Richard and said, “I just found this amazing card that lets you win the game” and Richard said, “What card is it?” The guy said, “It says your opponent loses the game.” The guy misunderstood the card to mean that your opponent loses the whole game.

8 – Akroma, Angel of Wrath, yes Forge implements this card 100%. At first Akroma just had flying and haste. As Forge progressed, Akroma slowly gained all of her abilities. Forge also has her red, Planar Chaos sister Akroma, Angel of Fury.

7 – Snow Mana, well you probably noticed this since there is a whole extra mana pool dedicated to snow mana but it is still cool. Be sure to check out snow mana cards like Boreal Griffin, Frost Raptor, Goblin Rimerunner, Phyrexian Snowcrusher, Rimebound Dead, Phyrexian Ironfoot.

6 – Door to Nothingness is a 5 mana artifact that lets you win the game for only WWUUBBRRGG. Johnnies, feel free to go nuts.

5 – Goblin Sharpshooter, is a great way to kill all of your opponents X/1 creatures in play. Works great against elves too!

4 – Equipment, make sure to add these to your favorite decks: No-Dachi (cost 2, equip 3, Equipped creature gets +2/+0 and has first strike) or Loxodon Warhammer (cost 3, equip 3, Equipped creature gets +3/+0 and has lifelink and trample.)

3 – Rukh Egg, an oldie but goodie. Break him out of his egg with Lightning Bolt.

2 – Sol Ring helps out any decks mana curve. For only a cost of 1, you get 2 more mana each turn.

1 – Darksteel Colossus – This is a huge trampling 11/11 creature. Since he is a little bit expensive, 11, feel free to cheat him into play using Elvish Pipe. Colossus can’t be put into the graveyard so you can’t Zombify him. Feel free to think of your own way to play this gigantic card.

That’s it. Merry Christmas.

Those are very nice cards, it's quite impressive that Forge handles them. Now you make me want to add them to Wagic, for the sake of competition ;)

Here is the list of cards supported in Wagic by the way

In that cool list you mention, Wagic has Akroma, Goblin sharpshooter, No-Dachi, Loxodon Warhammer, Sol Ring.

We're missing Planeswalkers, Time walk, Snow mana, door to nothingness, Rukh Egg, Darksteel Colossus...

There's still work :)

Congrats to the Forge team for the work so far, I wish you guys the best for 2010!

They probably do if you pay enough. Sounds like a waste of talent though, they're probably better at other stuff, I guess :D

I had a Kokusho equiped with a Jitte, the comp played an Edict and I sacrificed the Kokusho. When I did this the Kokusho's effect did not occur and the Jitte went to the graveyard.

That Is 10: "snow mana" isn't really a card :)
