I wanted to bust something interesting and I was drawn to this fat pack of Saviors of Kamigawa. Saviors of Kamigawa came out way back in 2005 and it was regarded as a weak set but in hindsight the set (and the block in general) had a lot of interesting and unique cards for EDH/ Commander.
The Fat Pack comes with a player’s guide, a book, a life counter/ dice…
2 premium/ foil cards…
and 6 packs. With the 6 packs, here is the deck I would play if it was sealed tournament.
The cards are weak individually but there is so much synergy and card advantage built in. That is actually the norm for any draft with Kamigawa sets. It was definitely a difficult but fun block to draft. Here are the best of the rest of the cards.
I just love the flavor of the Kamigawa block and it really didn’t get a fair shake with so many low impact cards (for constructed). I am planning to build a themed EDH deck with these cards, some other Kamigawa cards I have lying around and hope to pick up some Portal: Three Kingdom cards. Currently I am brewing a mono green spirits and arcane build with Kodama of the South Tree and I also may build a Toshiro Umezawa deck that would be based on the book. Should be a lot of fun!
Anyways, it kind of sucks that Magic fat packs these days aren’t loaded with as much as in the past. One of Magic strengths is its lore and I hope to read the book (and perhaps have a little review on this site). The player’s guide is fun and useful to have around. It really feels like fat packs nowadays are for people who can’t afford a full booster box. I may be in the minority but I would always trade 3 packs for all these extras.
