Alara Reborn Dead Ahead Intro Pack : MTG

Collectable Card Games > Magic the Gathering

Please note: This product is now out of print and no longer available.

Alara Reborn is the third and final set in the Shards of Alara block. Alara Reborn expands on the mechanics introduced in Shards of Alara and injects even more powerful gold cards into the block.

Alara Reborn is available in Booster Packs, Intro Packs, and Fat Packs. Intro packs are a new SKU introduced with Shards of Alara. Each Intro Pack contains a ready-to-play 41 card deck, 1 booster pack, a strategy insert, and a Magic the Gathering rules insert for new players. Each deck comes with two rare cards, one of which is a premium foil rare card that is visible through the front of the box. There are 5 different Intro Packs in Alara Reborn, packed 5 per display.

This deck is a bit half and half to be honest, because it doesn't have a solid theme like the other Alara Reborn decks. Despite this, the identity of this deck is clearly a good hybrid of black and red, having the card Terminate as a perfect example of creature removal. The deck also boosts discard, and direct damage, as is typical of black and red respectively. Lightning Reaver is a perfect hybrid of the two strategy; while Deathbringer Thoctar gives an extra bonus for killing creatures. The only major faults with the deck are Wizards including Terramorphic Expanse with it, as special land searching is not particularly needed for duo coloured decks. Also, they have included that in creatures that you can land cycle for. The cycle creatures are probably the worst creatures in the deck, but however I just treat something like Monstrous Carabid as a card I can pay 1 to draw another card for.
