CardShark Content - Eric Becker (12/31/2003)

It’s that time again, a new set of cards is nearing shelves and all of us mtg fans are eager to get an early glimpse of what is to come. Recently a number of cards, along with info, have leaked out of wotc giving fans an early look at Darksteel, the second set of the Mirrodin block.

After the release of Mirrodin many people started to discuss how Mirrodin’s mechanics (affinity, entwine, and imprint) could be varied throughout the upcoming 2 sets. Well, so far Darksteel has an interesting twist on affinity, its affinity for the basic land types. For example check out this card: Quicksilver Golem? –

Pretty cool, huh. As expected there will be at least one card with affinity for each type of basic land. As for imprint and entwine they will be in Darksteel and there are no apparent variations at this time, however there is talk of possibly imprinting more than one card on an artifact.

As for new mechanics there are 2 thus far. The first is Modular n (This comes into play with n +1/+1 counters on it. When it's put into a graveyard, you may put its +1/+1 counters on target artifact creature.) Right now the jury is still out on whether people like this mechanic, however most of the talk is using modular with Triskelion

to make sort of an artifact control deck.

The second mechanic is Indestructible (Indestructible permanents can't be destroyed by damage or destroy effects.) The speculation right now is that there will be 7 or more cards using the indestructible mechanic.

Other highlights of this set include a card that allows “free” mulligans, pulses (cards that have an effect, and then they may return to your hand depending on the game), instant equipping, and the return of Fireball
