Phyrexians no question. You have a much greater potential for a rediculous deck and vastly increase your odds to have the nut infect deck.

I agree Phyrexian. It already overpowers Scars in limited format and you'll have half of your sealed pool from that set. Looking at the spoilers, Phyrexian has a lot more nuts in it that would be game winners than Mirran does.

I see your points but I think Ill stick with Mirran.

Infect can kill you fast and it seems you can get some sick pool but Mirrans battle cry spread over the common and uncommon level and removal spells could take the game over faster than you realize.

mirrian
Infect is hard to pull at sealed in the new set there are only 9 dudes with infect and 2 of those are rare. Many will make the mistake of take Phyrexian and then forcing infect without a good deck. If you dont get the great pulls your deck torn in different directions. Atleast if you pull mirrian your deck will have a singular direction. And a decent mirrian deck is better than a decent infect deck.

I picked Phyrexians, because I love the fluff. Plus Yawgmoth will help me this Saturday (he promised me).

This is such an easy question that people aren't looking at in the correct way IMO.

Thrun is mirran.
Sword is Mirran. (or at least i was told so)

What is phyrexian that is worth ANY money besides the 12 mana 11/11? Nothing? Alright then! Go with the chance to make your money back on the prerelease. REMEMBER, its a PRERELEASE... everyone is terrible! Go for value.

Im pretty sure your count is off, although im not going to check.

The format MBS is 50% infect 50% non-infect. That's the point =/ So mixing MBS with SOM means out of 6 packs you'll have something like 30% infect give or take. If you get 10-16 infect creatures, its a viable archtype, and it doesnt really matter so much what the support spells are.

Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas
Massacre Wurm
I think those will be more pricey, than Thrun or the Sword.

You mean the card that appears on both factions?

The truth is this, and it has been appointed in another thread: if you want to win at the prerelease, go Phyrexian; if you want cards to play outside Limited, like Constructed, go Mirran. Mr. Green

Yes, so you have a chance to pull something pricey from a Phrexian booster. But I think Massacre Wurm will also raise in price, specially with the UB control deck dominance in Type2.

I don't think that's true. If you win the PRE, you will get boosters (at least where I play that's the custom) quite a lot. So you chances of getting something nice, something valuable is increased by a lot.

always go for value. that is my lesson to you for today =\

They wouldn't make it that lopsided, and so go with the clan that has the most money.

Phyrexian, because the blacks cards like Massacre Wurm and the black Zenith look really fun. Plus, the Colossus wouldn't be a bad pull either. Haha.
