The release of the latest Magic The Gathering Block, Oath of the Gatewatch, is nearly upon us which can only mean one thing…Prerelease events! In addition to the usual MTG formats expected, this time Wizards of the Coast is inviting players to take the Oath of the Gatewatch with a friend and invite them to fight along side you in the Two Headed Giant format. For those of you who have not tried this format of MTG, you’re missing out and there’s no time like the present.
In Two Headed Giant, 4 players face off in 2 teams where they share their life total and turns of game play. Each player gets to bring a deck into the game and work cooperatively to finish off the opposing team. The cooperative element is great fun as the team shares the amount of mana available to them and you can strategically choose the order of cards to play.
Though this is all well and good, perhaps the best part about this format of Magic is reducing the fear factor for participating in a Pre-release event. What better way to get over the jitters than to take your partner in crime with you?
Will you be taking the Oath with one of your friends at the Prerelease?
