The drop ship was in site and we had less than 30 seconds to get on board before our operation was a complete failure. Tasked with the elimination of Cerberus Phantoms, we met heavy resistance and were struggling to get out alive. After fighting for what seemed like forever (or 30 mins), our team frantically sprinted toward our lingering salvation. Seconds before extraction, our Salarain engineer Yummo Jundomo was ambushed by a cloaked phantom, genetically modified killing machines courtesy of Cerberus.
Since our interview with them last year the ever-busy unicorns have been working on a number of projects individually, and are currently producing something incredibly cool that I promised not to talk about… yet. As much as I’d love to share the intel, Team Unicorn is a group that you don’t want to agitate. After all, what do you think that horn is for?
PAX: East is not only home to the biggest AAA gaming titles and indie gems, but the staples of tabletop as well. It’s been a while since I played a game of Magic: The Gathering, but playing against Team Unicorn was great motivation for me to dust off my once formidable Magic skills. I arrived at the Wizard’s booth to discover both Milynn and Rileah duking it out with some really excellent players. These guys knew their shit. After standing around for a few moments feeling incredibly inept, I realized I didn’t have a deck! That’s like being a wizard with no spell book…useless! What transpired next is a perfect example of what makes PAX so damn special. The young gentleman standing next to me offered to lend me his own cards, and said that he’d stick around to help me out should I have any questions. Rileah was playing some sort of nasty black and red combo that was great at taking out the medium sized creatures in my borrowed white and green deck. As soon as I thought I had the game in the bag (she was down to 7 HP!), Rileah turned the game around and crushed me in front of my new friends with my own creatures! Even though I was readily stomped, I have to thank to Team Unicorn for reminding me how much I used to love a good game of Magic. Rematch Rileah?
