NEW MAGIC SET!
Battle for Zendikar is just around the corner, and we're all chomping at the bit to see the new cards, so I'm gonna do as I always do and try to put it all out there in one quick shot for everyone.
Let's start at the beginning, with the Pre-releases: September 26th-27th. This time around, the prerelease boxes are a little different. You get 6 Battle for Zendikar boosters and a random rare or mythic rare from the set as a Promo card. The box itself will be a hedron themed deckbox and it comes with a spindown d20. Now if anyone is interested in the Prerelease, we'll be taking signups in advance to guarantee you get to play. If you want to play in all five, you can pay for all five in advance, and if you don't manage to make it in to the event we'll hold onto your pack for you afterwards. Each event will be $24.99, and I'd love to see how many make it to all five.
That pre-release weekend also marks the launch of the 'Vancouver' Mulligan rule you may have been hearing about. At that point, in any games when you mulligan, after ALL mulligans have been resolved, any player who mulliganed at least once can Scry 1.
After the Prerelease comes release day, and I expect this one to be nuts. Friday October 2nd as soon as I open the doors I'll have booster for $3.79 + tax, boxes for $99 + tax, Fat Packs for $39.99 + tax, and Intro Packs at $14.99 + tax. If anyone preorders anything I'll have those for you on that Friday as well, along with the buy a box promo for anyone who preorders a full box.
That Friday (October 2nd) will also have a Standard and Draft FNM. The Standard will be the first of the new format with Battle for Zendikar cards legal for play. The Draft will be 3 Battle Packs. And both will also feature a special release promo for anyone who plays.
This set is extra special because of the Expeditions land. There's a chance to open a foil, full-art version of one of the fetchlands, shocklands, or one of the new lands from Battle itself!
A month later is the Game Day, and everyone should be excited for this one. October 24th and 25th we will be hosting a standard tournament each day. Anyone who plays in this event will get a special full art Promo. Anyone who makes it into the top 8 will get another one, this time foil. And of course the First Place player will get a sweet playmat featuring art from the set.
And because this is the Fall set, we also get the chance on November 6th to pick up more Battle cards in the Holiday Gift Box. This time around it'll be $24.99 and comes with 5 packs and a bunch of cool stuff, including lands, dividers, and a promo:
