PAX Innistrad Party

Happy late Satruday MTG peeps,

Altough it is around midnight just now here where we are, things are heating up in downtown Seattle as we type. Wizards of the Coast have provided their usual presence at the PAX Prime (Penny Arcade Expo) event showcasing the latest in the Duels of the Planeswalker electronic game as well as a number of other organised events. The big event however is all the very exciting Magic the Gathering news coming from the popular downtown Seattle venue Showbox at the Market where game fans are being treated to a huge number of Innistrad previews.

Frankly, there is a lot of news and previews to discuss but for the moment, we will just provide images posted and follow up with all the coolness with a latter post including a five ability Planeswalker (Garruk), and double-sided cards - so stay tuned to MTG Realm for the latest.

Also of note - there should be many answers for us on Monday's Magic Arcana - we're hoping they'll hit the new Day / Night mechanics, transform rules and the deal with this we hear about double sided cards.
