Welcome Mysidians to Fabul, a peaceful kingdom defended by high walls and an order of formidable monks. These martial artists excel in hand to hand combat and are led by their humble yet fearless, leader, Yang Fang Leiden. Now we are not here to today about Yang, however. This article will be focussed on Yang’s daughter and disciple, Ursula (11-064L).
Ursula is the latest of hyper-specific Earth Legends that can only be played in decks built around them. As Earth is my favourite element, I am not always a fan of this design choice. In this case, I have found some optimism (doesn’t hurt that Ursula is Category IV). I recently played some test games on Untap.in with my pal David using an Ursula/Monk deck. While the games were casual, I was surprised by how useful Ursula’s abilities were, and how often I had a chance to use them. That inspired me to write this article, so let’s get started.
Note: I am going on a 14-day trip with my school to Europe and will miss a lot of the spoilers for Opus XI, hence the early article. Please take this into consideration if amazing Monk cards are revealed in Opus XI but are not featured in the article.
Welcome back Mysdians. Today I am joined by my friend and podcast co-host David to talk about five Opus XI spoilers that are really getting us excited to build new decks. In this article we will each take turns talking about a card that we are personally looking forward to. Let us know in the comments below if there are any cards that you can't wait to play with! Alright, lets get started.
Today Square Enix revealed their new Card of the Week for Opus XI and boy is it is a wild one. Sephiroth 11-130L is our Dark Legend for the upcoming set and has a lot powerful text. Post announcement we have already heard cries that this iteration of the One-Winged Angel is prime example of power creep, which I don’t necessarily disagree with. I do want to talk about the potential for this card, rather than talk about if it is OP or not. In my opinion, Sephiroth fits into two distinct types of decks. But I am getting ahead of myself, let’s talk about the card first.
