Twilight of the Dragons


   I'm a bit behind the times with this set, but I got my hands on a Twilight of the Dragons Epic Collection. This one seems to be quite hard to find, but I suppose it is quite old.

"Deathwing the Destroyer has arrived in the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game and he's brought both the Twilight and Black dragonflights with him. Tainted by corrupt magic before they were hatched, the Twilight dragons threaten to bring an age of darkness to the land. Unleash their fiery fury as you crack open packs of Twilight of the Dragons, in stores now.

Embrace the chaos and ally with Nefarian, Cho'gall, and Sinestra, or defend Azeroth against their assault by joining Thrall, Caelestrasz, Merithra, Arygos, Anachronos, and the elemental ascendants. In this time of great peril, will you join Deathwing's forces or defend against it? Choose your side and prepare for war!"

   Like other Epic Collections, it gives you a collector's box with class dividers, 6 expansion-appropriate booster packs, 5 foil heroes, a deck box, and, of course, a common loot card, in this case the Nightsaber Cub. I actually managed to pull another Nightsaber Cub loot card out of one of the booster packs, but, sadly, no Amani Dragonhawk, and no Fool's Gold, and since these booster packs are virtually non-existant now, this was my only chance. But no matter!
   I bought this set mostly for the collector's box. My War of the Ancients Epic Collection box is full to the brim with cards, so I was in desperate need of a new one. I could have bought the Betrayal of the Guardian Epic Collection, but I didn't. Despite how big a fan I am of Medivh, the art of TotD appealed to me more.

   This expansion is an amazing one for - you guessed it - black and twilight dragons. After just these six packs I have an abundance of them, which is a shame since I'm currently working on a Timewalker's deck, so these black and twilight dragons don't really lend themselves to it much.
   It's a pretty nice expansion, though, and my second Epic Collection. I love the trading card game, I do, but I have got to hold my hands up and admit that I love loot cards just as much, so fully half of the reason I buy these Epic Collections, and booster packs, is my chance at an awesome loot card.
