Hello again Magic: the Gathering fans. The latest set, Journey into Nyx officially 2released on Friday 2nd May, 2014 and the game is ready to evolve and adapt to encompass the 165 new cards. How each game format will change is based almost entirely upon the players themselves as they pick through the new cards to see what will work and what may not. With the first large Magic: the Gathering tournament event, SCG Standard Open Cincinnati taking place over the weekend, many players were looking at the results here to serve as a barometer for how the standard format game was shaping up. The results though do not point to any one particular strategy and we can likely say that the field is still open.

What we here at MTG Mint Card can say is look to our top selling Journey into Nyx cards if you want to attempt a look through the crystal ball and forecast where popular or powerful decklists may be. Here’s a handful of new Journey into Nyx cards which our customers have been eager to snap up –

Mana Confluence, Temple of Malady and Temple of Epiphany – any good decklist starts with a solid mana-base in which to cast spells (the exception of course are those weird decks with no lands). Mana Confluence is a huge hit with any players running more than one color and the two remaining ‘scrylands’ have ‘Golgari’ and ‘Izzet’ players happy as well.
Prophetic Flamespeaker – a 1/3 red three-drop with double strike and trample – yes please. Amazing ability to pull and fling more (burn) spells at your opponent.
Prophetic Flamespeaker
Eidolon of Blossoms – a lot of players – and not necessarily standard at looking at this card to compliment existing white and white / green ‘Enchantress’ decks which are always happy to be able to draw an additional card.
Eidolon of Blossoms
Deicide – Lastly, this lovely instant spell. If you thought the pantheon of 15 Theran gods were too powerful, then go packing with this two drop which will not only exile an enchantment but should it be a god card, you can strip your opponents deck right down.
Drop by MTG Mint Card today to pick up some of these best selling Journey into Nyx and of course a huge host of others. Happy deck-brewing!

Hello again Magic: the Gathering fans. The third and last set in Theros Block, Journey into Nyx is finally set to be released this very weekend and as per usual, here at MTG Mint Card we want to do a brief summary of some the very lovely Journey into Nyx Foil Singles. Whether you are a casual card collector or a more serious one wanting to hit that ultimate pinnacle of ‘foiling out’ your Commander (EDH) or Cube build, MTG Mint Card has a large number of foils ready for you. Here are just a few foil cards because of the epic art or potential for inclusion in our deck or collection that are on our radar :

Launch the Fleet, illustrated by Karl Kopinski – the foil on this art is simply impressive and we think that this card will appeal to just about every constructed format player. The synergy with Battlefield Thaumaturge is just downright crazy and potential in further formats solid.

Sage of Hours, illustrated by Matt Stewart – the foiling here on the Wizard’s gears in the background is beautiful. There are a few players we know that are picking up this beauty for their Prime Speaker Zegana build where you’ll need more than a bag bull of tokens.

Hydra Broodmaster, illustrated by Steve Prescott – with the foil highlights on the Hydra’s nested eggs, it just looks like a pot of gold, which the card spell essentially is in most strategies wanting to churn out tokens or an awesome mana-sink.

Keranos, God of Storms , illustrated by Daarken – the dark stormy sky and the lightning bolt are a perfect canvass for the very cool and subtle foiling. As for the card, there has been about six Izzet Generals / Commanders to date and most have not been all that crazy good. Keranos will now be the Commander of Choice with some very sweet abilities.

Remember to drop by MTG Mint Card soon and check back often as we continually update with fresh stock.

Hello again Magic: the Gathering fans. With all the new cards now revealed for Journey into Nyx, MTG Mint Card has now the complete set loaded up on our page and all singles available now. This set contains a total of 165 cards with a rarity break-down of 10 Mythic Rare, 35 Rare, 60 Uncommon, and 60 Common. Like the two previous sets (Theros and Born of the Gods) in the same block, Journey into Nyx features an ancient Greek Mythology theme and has a strong enchantment motif. Constellation and Strive are newly introduced keyword abilities in this set while Bestow, Scry, Monstrosity, Devotion, Inspired and Heroic return for an appearance from the two previous sets.

New Journey into Nyx cards most anticipated by players are of course the five multi-colored gods (each are mythic rare legendary enchantment creatures) – Athreos, God of Passage, Keranos, God of Storms, Pharika, God of Affliction, Iroas, God of Victory, and Kruphix, God of Horizons. Additionally, many players have been looking forward to finally getting the last two ‘Temple’ Scrylands – ‘Temple of Epiphany ‘ (blue / red) and ‘Temple of Malady’ (black / green).

Here at MTG Mint Card we all have a list of our favorite cards for specific game formats but we can all agree that the following three cards certainly do stand out -

Ajani, Mentor of Heroes – finally a gree / white Planeswalker. Ajani can pump creatures with hard +1/+1 counters, dig the top of your library for a relevant creature, aura or Planeswalker and the ultimate is a crazy-good 100-point lifegain making it pretty much impossible for your opponent to catch up.


Athreos, God of Passage – An incredibly inexpensive god card to cast (only 3 mana!) nets you a 5/4 indestructible enchantment creature which becomes animated once your devotion to white and black are seven. This is rather a mute point considering most players will be happy just for the amazing static ability – ‘Whenever another creature you own dies, return it to your hand unless target opponent pays 3 life’. Pure gold.

Athreos, God of Passage

• Mana Confluence - Land is of equal importance as spells in Magic: the Gathering and being able to fix the correct color of mana in a multi-colored deck is critical. Mana Confluence requires just one life to tap for any color of mana making this card a player favorite.

Hello again Magic: the Gathering fans. This week marked the beginning of Journey into Nyx official previews and will culminate with the final release on the 2nd May, 2014. MTG Mint Card will be continually updating our page over the next two weeks until the very last card is posted for pre-order. Like the two previous sets in Theros block, Journey into Nyx continues with an ancient Greek mythology theme – gods, monsters, and heroes.

Continuing with previous mechanics / abilities from Theros and Born of the Gods, you can expect a return of Devotion, Scry, Heroic, Bestow and a number of enchantment creatures that consolidates the ‘enchantments matter’ design. There will be two new mechanics to look forward to as well – ‘Constellation’ and ‘Strive’. Very simply put, spell with a ‘Strive’ ability lets you pump more mana into it to increase the number of targets, while an enchantment’s ‘Constellation’ ability triggers an effect every time it or another enchantment enters the battlefield under your control.

Let’s have a look at a few Journey into Nyx cards which caught our attention here at MTG Mint Card -

The Gods – There are five new multicolored mythic rare legendary enchantment creatures that each embody one of the lesser gods of Theros:
• Athreos, God of Passage (black / white)
Keranos, God of Storms (blue / red)

Keranos, God of Storms
• Pharika, God of Affliction (black / green)
Iroas, God of Victory(red / white)

Kruphix, God of Horizons (blue / green)
If you are looking to get into the game, one of the best places to start is modifying one of the Journey into Nyx Intropacks. There are the five intro packs, one for each color, for Journey into Nyx, and many players simply double up on the intro pack promo card to make a stronger deck. Here are the five new cards now -
Dawnbringer Charioteers (white)

Dawnbringer Charioteers
Scourge of Fleets (blue)

Scourge of Fleets
• Doomwake Giant (black)
Spawn of Thraxes (red)

Spawn of Thraxes
• Heroes’ Bane (green)
