It’s time to tap four mana and take a look at what is coming next in Magic: The Gathering.
Modern Event Deck
Let’s start with the latest news, the Modern Event Deck has been revealed and it’s basically a budget version of the W/B tokens deck. As a reminder, this deck is a 60 cards deck with a 15 cards sideboard and is legal for modern tournaments. It comes with a deck box, 80 exclusive card sleeves and 5 double-sided tokens for an approximate price of $75 (about 100.– CHF).
The deck includes one copy of Elspeth, Knight-Errant, a playset of Isolated Chapel, a playset of Windbrisk Heights and one Sword of Feast and Famine among other staple cards like Spectral Procession, Honor of the Pure and Lingering Souls.
The deck will be available on the 30th of May. You can find the complete decklist here.
Vintage Masters on Magic Online
After the Modern Masters, here comes the Vintage version but exclusively on Magic Online. This 325 cards expansion is planned to be released on the 16th of June with prerelease events running from 13th to 16th. Each pack will contain 10 commons, 3 uncommons, 1 rare or mythic rare and 1 foil card (including power nine) or 1 power nine card.
The power nine is a set of (obviously) nine cards which are restricted to one copy in Vintage constructed, and will have a special rarity about twice as rare as a mythic.
The expansion is also available for limited, more information on the official page.
New card frame
Starting with M15, the magic cards will use a new frame with a new font and smaller border. In addition, the rares and mythics will have a holofoil stamp to guaranty the authenticity of the card.
New draft set: Conspiracy
Conspiracy is the name of a new set that will come out the 6th of June. It is a special set, focused on drafting and multiplayer. It contains 210 cards with 65 new cards. Among the new cards, 52 will be playable in Legacy and Vintage.
Here is a link to the set announcement.
Clash Pack, Event Deck and Duel Deck
Each new expansion usually comes with its Event Deck, but starting with M15, the Event Decks will alternate with a new product: the Clash Pack. Instead of one Event Deck, you’ll have two decks, built to play against each other and with the same power level than the Event Decks. The pack will include two 60 cards decks with 6 alternate art foil cards for $29.99. More details on this page.
A new duel deck has also been announced for September: Speed Vs. Cunning.
From the Vault: Annihilation
On the 22nd of August, the next From The Vault set of 15 cards will be released. According to the name and the announcement article, the set will contain famous board sweeping / wrath effects foil reprints.
This is it for today.
Until next time, GL & HF.
