It's almost December, so it's time to announce the promos that Friday Night Magic players can look forward to over the next three months. They are shiny, and soon they can all be yours.
It's the holidays, so make sure you call your bloodline—er, family. Olivia Voldaren is already on top of it with hers. Give yours a call, then show up at a Friday Night Magic in December to pick up a copy of Call the Bloodline. Your grandmother will appreciate it.
Speaking of effective ways to utilize madness, Noose Constrictor is one of the better ones around. This Wild Mongrel update has been used in a number of powerful tournament decks to block fliers, put cards in the graveyard, and just generally serve as a menacing Snake.
In February, attend an FNM and then pick a hand, any hand—no, not that hand. The other one. In it you'll find this promo version of Fortune's Favor by Grzegorz Rutkowski, whose art is as fantastic as his name is difficult to spell.
