New Version

Forge has 500 new cards for a total grand total of 10,524 cards. Over 10,000 cards is just insanely crazy but it is more fun than a 100 pound ice cream.

Some of the new cards include:

Mirror Strike (3W, Instant) – “All combat damage that would be dealt to you this turn by target unblocked creature is dealt to its controller instead.” The card sounds cool and should win a few games.

Pulse of the Forge (1RR, Instant) – “Pulse of the Forge deals 4 damage to target player. Then if that player has more life than you, return Pulse of the Forge to its owner's hand.” The “pulse cycle” is great and repeatedly dealing damage is fabulous. This card has “card advantage” written all over it.

Fist of Suns (3, Artifact) – Let’s you pay WUBRG for any card. This card screams screams, “Please build a deck around me.”

Gomazoa (2U, 0/3, Creature) – “Defender, flying and Tap: Put Gomazoa and each creature it's blocking on top of their owners' libraries, then those players shuffle their libraries.” A blue creature that just won’t die and lets you skip combat phases, cool.

The extra crispy avenger,

Hi Rares, Doublestrike here - keep up the great posts! Even when the well runs dry it's still interestingly mossy.

Keep your eyes peeled for a(nother) quantum leap in the UI on the next release...

Doublestrike - Thanks, writing seems like I am just beating a dead horse. A quantum leap in Forge's user interface sounds fantastic. Keep up the good work.
