Mirrodin Besieged

~
Good Day, Happy Sunday and Good News - we've returned unscathed from our vacation time with the bears up north in cottage country. As we are still unpacking and knocking raccoon cr@p off our camping equipment, we'll keep this post a short one.

Big News - as the title of our post suggests - Mirrodin Besieged has been officially announced as the second set in the Scars of Mirrodin block contrary to earlier prognostications. Also - there had been a lot of banter / conjecture around the interwebz (again) about Wizards introducing a new colour to magic (we're looking at you purple mana) - please folks - just stop it - everytime there's a mention of a new colour, God kills a kitten - please think of the kittens.

The next sets should be ordered as such . . .

First of all - how come no expansion symbol shown in this announcement ? Does it have something to do with faction / watermark symbols ? Next - There looks to be only 155 cards in this set . . very interesting. Oh - and one last thing - the art above that was spoiled is totally kick-butt.

For some flavour review, we suggest you click on over to the Wizards site (HERE) for the multiverse descriptor on Mirrodin. To sign off, here is an image of the new Scars of Mirrodin card, Sword of Body and Mind spotted at the recent Gen Con. This card is also part of the new From the Vault, Relics set.
