Conflux Marketing

Just a brief post with some marketing propaganda from WoTC regarding the release of Conflux, the second set in the Shards of Alara block.

If you were hoping for the full Agents of Artifice novel, sorry - you are getting just a sample chapter. Still, get thee to a gaming store in February, as there are 'even more powerful gold cards' . It just took one name to sell me on this set . . . 'Nicol Bolas'.

As the shards collide, an ancient evil is revealed! A sinister force is conspiring to reunite Alara, as planes of reality begin to overlap, creating chaos on all five Shards of Alara!

The second set in the Shards of Alara block for Magic: The Gathering, Conflux expands on the mechanics introduced in Shards of Alara, and injects even more powerful gold cards into the block.

This 145-card, black-bordered expansion is introduced in Intro Packs containing one ready-to-play, 41-card deck, one booster pack, a learn-to-play insert, and a strategy insert, offered in 5-count displays, and supplemental 15-card boosters packed in 36-count displays.

Also available are Fat Packs containing eight boosters, a card box, a player's guide, a learn-to-play insert, and a sample chapter from the Planeswalker novel Agents of Artifice.


o 145 black-bordered cards (10 Mythic Rare, 35 rare, 40 uncommon, 60 common).

o Conflux will be sold in Booster Packs, Intro Packs, & Fat Packs (Fat Packs contain 8 booster packs).

o Intro packs are a new SKU introduced with Shards of Alara. Each Intro Pack contains a ready-to-play 41 card deck, 1 Booster pack, a strategy insert, and a Magic the Gathering rules insert for new players. Each deck comes with two rare cards, one of which is a premium foil rare card that is visible through the front of the box. There are 5 different Intro Packs in Conflux, packed 5 per box.
