Deck of the Week: The Hour is Nigh


Its nearly time! The Hour is nearly upon us. Or for some of us it was at the weekend as we took part in the prereleases for Hour of Devastation. Doing his usual prerelease thing of opening all of the busted cards was Chris Aston, who managed to ope his third prerelease Glorybringer in the morning, having had a pool with TWO in during the Amonkhet prereleases, and managed to assemble this punishing beauty in the evening prerelease, going 3-0.
