New Phyrexia Event Decks

Happy Sunday MTG peeps,

We hope everyone's weekend is progressing nicely and you are getting some time to get in some Magic the Gathering games. We took in another Friday Night Magic and had come away with some interesting ideas after playing with our buddies Bryan and Austin - more on that latter - for now, let's have a look at the packaging for the New Phyrexia Event decks that have been floating around the net . . .

EVENT DECKS: Returning with New Phyrexia are Event Decks. These 60-card decks come with a 15-card sideboard and are perfect for use in Standard play tournaments like Friday Night Magic or Game Day celebrations. They also come with a SpindownTM life counter and a reusable card box. Please note: The event decks being created for New Phyrexia will be released on June 10, 2011

We even have the names for the Event Decks as well . . .
War of Attrition (W), and
Rot from Within (G)

The colours as well as the arts look very intriguing on these and personally cannot wait to get our hands on them as we were very impressed with the last Event Decks developed by Wizards for Mirrodin Besieged.

Next up -

an amazing Friday Night Magic Promo for May, 2001 we definitely dream of have a deck set of in our budget Caw-Blade deck . . .

Squadron Hawk, 1W


When Squadron Hawk enters the battlefield, you may search your library for up to three cards named Squadron Hawk, reveal them, put them into your hand, then shuffle your library.


This card as we well know not only provides amazing card advantage but is an essential component in many of today's top tier decks. The card art from Martina Pilcerova is as beautiful as the original from Rob Alexander.


We have spoiler / previews for both the regular upcoming New Phrexian Surgical Extraction cards to compare. Surgical Extraction will be this set's Buy-A-Box promo. This is a free alternate-art premium card that's given to the first twenty people to buy a Booster Box at participating locations.

Surgical Extraction, {pb}
Instant - Rare
({PB} can be paid with either {B} or 2 life.)
Choose target card in a graveyard other than a basic land card. Search its owner's graveyard, hand, and library for all cards with the same name as that card and exile them. Then that player shuffles his or her library.

Lastly, some news from our friends at MTG Mint Card - New Phyrexia assorted card lots are now available for pre-order. We have for some time been ordering the card lots as it is an fast, efficient and inexpensive way to get your collection together and start playing with all the new awesomeness.
