Card Vote #9

For this week’s card vote it’s a duel between two heavy hitters, Hammer of Bogardan and Shard Phoenix. Both are powerful cards with significant tournament experience on their resume. Both bring great late game options to their decks thanks to their ability to be returned from the graveyard. Hammer of Bogardan has made it into two previous core sets (Sixth Edition and Eighth Edition) while Shard Phoenix is looking to make its first appearance outside of Stronghold. Make sure to vote for your favorite and we’ll let you know the results next week!
