A World Enraged
Ancient forces begin to awaken, causing the world of Zendikar to wreak havoc upon its inhabitants. This exotic and dangerous world is made even more perilous and yet more attractive to adventurers and Planeswalkers wishing to plunder its treasures.

Zendikar now writhes and thrashes like a living thing literally lashing out at those on its surface. Do you have the skills, wits, and courage to survive, let alone thrive?

“Allies... and Jace!”

Worldwake is a relatively small set, the second of three in the Zendikar block. One of the best things about this particular set is the expansion of the Allies. Allies are really spiffy cards. If you are familiar with Slivers from a ways back, these build of of that in that most allies increase the effectiveness of the other allies, at least upon entering the field (in design, they were referred to as “super slivers”). Some put +1/+1 counters on themselves and other allies, some will do damage to a target… this mechanic can get sick and ridiculous if you have an effect like Mass Polymorph that allows you to make several enter at once. My wife has a five-color Allies deck (Commander format) that really kicks butt. Perhaps the set’s biggest claim to fame, though, is that it has Jace, The Mindsculptor, one of the most expecnsive Planeswalker cards. Whan last I checked (January ’12), unopened boosters were selling for $12 apiece at my local game store… all due to the fact that there might be a Jace in there. Crazy!
