Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
Our region just got hammered today with that severe winter storm and we're pretty much buried up to our necks with the lovely white fluffy stuff. One may say that 'Now is the Winter of Our Disco Tent' . . .
Anywhoos - onto business . . .
This post will cover the very last spoiler of Mirrodin Besieged - the Mirrodin Besieged Event decks. These decks feature a 60 card main deck and 15 card sideboard, including 7 rares but no mythic rares. Mirrodin Besieged features two event decks: a Mono-red event deck for the Mirran side ('Into the Breach') of the conflict, and a blue-black deck for the Phyrexians ('Infect and Defile'). These also come with a Spindown life counter and a very neat reusable card box . . . We're rather impressed with the recent WoTC product offerings.
These are expected to be released in time for Mirrodin Besieged Game Day on February 25, 2011 and will have a manufacturer's suggested retail price of around $25 - not too shabby considering the contents - let's look . . .
EDIT : This has now been confirmed on 2/16/2011 here.
