Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
We need to catch up here on MTG Realm with some news which we did not get around too. Last week on the mothership, there was an announcement of another addition to Planechase. This casual Magic the Gathering format called 'Planar Magic' uses a six-sided Planar die and oversized Plane cards which are themed to various locations within the multiverse and provides various rules modifiers to regular gameplay. Previously in 2009, four game packs were released which contained a 60-card preconstructed deck, 10 Plane cards, and the Planar dice. The decks were Elemental Thunder (red / green), Metallic Dreams (blue), Strike Force (red / white), Zombie Empire (black).
In last week's announcement (here), Wizards plans to release four new pre-constructed Planechase decks (Chaos Reigns, Night of the Ninja, Primordial Hunger, and Savage Auras) will contain all-new planar decks that contain a new kind of oversized card called phenomenon cards, and an assortment of new, MTG cards. Let's have a looky-see . . .
Time DistortionIn the announcement, there is also a mention of a cycle of multicolored Legendary creatures with this Planechase spoiler . . .
yo dawg, I heard you like cascade . . .
With a total of 21 new Magic cards in this set, spread across the four decks, we're certain that MTG casual fans will be eating this up. Expect this product to be released on June 1, 2012 in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. Each of the four decks will contain a sixty-card Magic deck, a ten-card planar deck, and a planar die which will go for around $20.
