Hey everyone, I'm back with another Cardsphere article. This is two weeks in a row now, I'M ON A ROLL! So for this one, I've been working on a collaboration with Pinfinity to help reveal their newest line of Magic the Gathering pins, and I'm here to share with you the Gruul Signet pin.
What's this Pinfinity you speak of?
Pinfinity creates augmented reality collectible pins that bring your favorite fandoms to life with animation, sound, and interactive experiences.
Their newest release is an entire line of the Allied Signets and Enemy Signets in the original Dan Frazier art, and they are only making a limited quantity of these sets- 1,993 to be exact! If you preorder both signet sets, you will also receive the promo Arcane Signet pin by Dan Frazier. These are a really neat item for Magic: the Gathering collectors and pin lovers alike. They are available for preorder now here, and are expected to ship out in mid-January.
Augmented Reality sounds scary, but isn't!
A super cool thing that Pinfinity does with all their pins is the Augmented Reality (AR) that you can experience on the Pinfinity AR app. Here's an example of one of their Innistrad: Crimson Vow pins where you can see how the AR works.
So for the newest signet pins, Pinfinity asked a group of content creators to each build a Commander deck in the two color pairing that matches the signet we've been asked to reveal, and you can find those deck lists when you scan the corresponding pin in the Pinfinity AR app! Cool, right?!
Since I had the Gruul Signet, I decided to build a Hans Eriksson deck. This would be my first Gruul deck and the attack mechanic he has seemed really fun, so I was excited to put this list together!
I'll be honest, I don't really want to do a full run down of everything the deck does cause that's not my jam. Essentially, the deck just has a ton of value and some big creatures to take advantage of Hans' ability. Of course, it also has plenty of ways to keep him safe using equipment and ways to make things to indestructible. This deck is a TON of fun to play, and even if I don't get a creature from Hans' attack, I'm getting lots of good stuff in my hand.
Personally, I think the real winner in this deck is
Reliquary Tower, because the few of times I've played with this deck so far, I've always had soooo many cards in hand and who doesn't want that!?
Anyways, here's the full deck list for you to check out and see what all the fuss is about:
