Our rare, Haunted Plate Mail, is a bomb in limited. It transforms any mundane creature into an amazing threat, and in a pinch can become a threat on its own should your opponent have answers for all your other creatures.

No other card in the booster pack has quite the impact that Cone of Flame does though. Cone of Flame is an absolute MVP that can blow out games. It'll almost always result in a two for one plus a damage to your opponent's head, and in rare instances Cone of Flame can be an amazing three for one. Now that's card advantage.

Speaking of card card advantage, Rummaging Goblin isn't a high pick however it's one that's quite often overlooked. You'll gain value be transforming your dead lands into business spells, improving the overall quality of the cards in your hand. This Magic player is a huge fan of looter effects, and if you like to play more control oriented decks with grindy games that go long Rummaging Goblin makes an excellent mid to late pick.

Altac Bloodseeker is most likely the third best card in the pack.

Both Negate and Ornithopter see constructed play, and are worth drafting just to add to your collection, if you don't already own a playset of each.
