The Alara Reborn Prerelease was fun, right? Kelly Digges seems to have enjoyed it. And judging by this smattering of responses to @dailymtg, some of you did as well!

Here's how it started:

(Kelly) Had a great time at the Prerelease. Any of you have good stories from the weekend?

And here are some of our favorite 140-character stories:

thetwixt @dailymtg One of my favorite prereleases. Very fun set, esp Cascade. got 3 exalted w/ one spell in my first game.

fotolorea @dailymtg Prerelease story: Kept playing Broodbraid Elf and cascading into either Intimidation Bolt or Flurry of Wings. Not cool. LOL :)

Intimidation Bolt
Flurry of Wings

cursedmortivore @dailymtg I had Spellbound Dragon swinging one turn and discarding Valley Rannet then the next turn discarding Thraximundar for the win.

podunk42 @dailymtg Gloryscale Viashino + 2 Reborn Hope = WIN.

kaokun @dailymtg I also managed to get a Mage Slayer onto a Blitz Hellion :) Nothing like 14 to your opponent's face to put a smile on yours

burgessm @dailymtg Allstar play of the day: Enlisted Wurm, cascading into Demonic Dread to kill a crystallized thoctar, cascading into Terminate

Enlisted Wurm
Demonic Dread

brendensparks @dailymtg I had to run it so didn't get chance to play. But incredible brainstorming, theorycrafting, and deck-naming after the fact.

izezay @dailymtg turn 5 kill with twin claw and 2 pump spells, opp was tapped out

Marisi's Twinclaws
Colossal Might

Dave_Rey @dailymtg Good stories? It wasn't good for me, but in one of my games, my opponent played Deny Reality and hit Meddling Mage off the Cascade

blisterguy @dailymtg i offered my opponent my deck to cut, so he cut to reveal a card at random to see who goes first. i wasn't expecting that
