Broken Cards 6: How to Beat Outrageous Rarity

Currently we are running out of truly broken cards from the Premier set, so I might as well talk about the elephant in the room, Rarity Truly Outrageous. This card is ridiculously broken, you could even say redonkulous (I won't, but you could)

Because of the lack of reactive control in the premier set there is almost nothing that the opponent can do to stop this card from steam rolling. The way this card is broken is obvious, so I'm going to do something a bit different today and talk about how you might be able to counter it.

Special Treat: Hot Topic Alternate Foil Decks 11$ each

Hello Everypony!

I've been on a business trip this last week, and I technically work for a "competing" game company, so I couldn't post anything to the blog while I was out. But I'm back now and free to post an amazing discovery.

Hottopic.com is currently holding a 15% off online purchases sale, and they seem to have just gotten a new shipment of the Alternate foil MLP CCG theme decks. So if you've been wanting to get your hands on a foil Rarity or Applejack mane character card now is your chance. This is perfect for those of you who don't have hot topics nearby or who's hottopics were immediately sold out.

These decks are still going for 25-30$ on ebay, but they're only 11$ on hottopic.com right now. At that price it's worth it to by a couple decks just to get the fixed rarity cards that they contain. I already bought one of each on ebay for 25$, like a sucker, but I just got a few more.

Here is a direct link to the product pages for both decks:
Foil Rarity Deck
Foil Applejack Deck

Go get your decks now. Sales on collectors cards are rare and sales on alternate specialty versions are even rarer. If you hold on to sealed versions of these decks far a few years they might be worth considerably more (assuming the game continues to do well).

Broken Cards Episode 5: Gotta Catch 'Em All.



Today's Broken cards is going to focus on the only Problem card that qualifies as broken. There aren't many that fit into this category, so I'll just go ahead and reveal it before the jump: May the Best Pet Win. That's why I called the article Gotta Catch 'Em All. You know, pet's battling, like Pokemon...

News from Enterplay: Preview of Canterlot Nights and Multiplayer Rules!

Recently Enterplay announced via Equestria Daily that they have been working on a Beta version of Multiplayer rules and also took the opportunity to spoil an awesome new promo card from Canterlot Nights.

You can take a look at the PDF version of the rules beta here.

And below is the new promo, a brand new Princess Luna friend card.


This card looks pretty solid, 4 cost for 3 power is a bit underwhelming, but that on enter play ability is extremely good. Chances are this is going to be included in the Walmart version of the Ponies tins, so keep your eyes out when you venture into Walmart in the near future.
