We have for your consideration today the Magic 2011 Sales Solicitation released to retailers on 18th May. These documents are of use to the community as well as retailers who use this for reference (product code, upc code, size, weight and manufacturer's suggested retail price are vital information) - but anywhoos - the reason the MTG gaming community would be interested in this sort of thing is for it's little tid-bits of information to whet one's imagination as to what to expect in new card goodness . . . some bullets -
• The Magic 2011 Core Set follows the same blueprint laid by the Magic 2010 Core Set, one of the best-selling Magic core sets of all time.
• Like the Magic 2010 Core Set, approximately half of the Magic 2011 Core Set will be brand new cards. The rest of the set will be returning favorites from throughout Magic’s 17-year history
• The biggest difference between M10 and M11 will be in the Intro Packs. Starting with the Magic 2011 Core Set, Intro Packs will contain 60-card decks instead of 41-card decks. They will still contain a 15-card booster and rules inserts, all for $12.99 MSRP.
• Intro Packs are an ideal introduction to both Magic: The Gathering and the new core set. These new 60-card Intro Pack decks are now constructed tournament legal.
• The Magic 2011 Core Set will have a Prerelease, a Launch Party, and a Game Day. It will also be used in high-level organized play events in 2010.
• Standard now rotates only once each year, with the release of the October large set. Magic 2011 will enter Standard on its release without knocking anything out, then Magic 2010 and Shards of Alara® block will leave Standard with the release of Scars of Mirrodin™
• Magic 2011 Prerelease Tournaments: July 10 – 11, 2010
• Magic 2011 Launch Parties: July 16 - 18, 2010
• Magic 2011 Game Day: August 14, 2010
