Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
There is a very exciting announcement over on the mothership today via WoTC Monty regarding the very next From the Vaults product due out latter this year in August. First up, just a quick 4.1.1 on this series for those newer players -
From the Vault is a series of Magic the Gathering box sets, released on an annual basis, typically in late August by Wizards of the Coast. Each box set contains 15 tournament legal, black-bordered foil cards with a common theme. Some of these cards may feature alternative artwork specific to that set.
Here's the quick round-up of previous FTV sets :
From the Vault: Dragons, featuring Dragons, released August 29th, 2008
From the Vault: Exiled, featuring Banned cards, released August 28th, 2009
From the Vault: Relics, featuring Artifacts, August 27th, 2010
From the Vault: Legends, featuring Legendary Creature cards, released August 26th, 2011
and the new one . . .
From the Vault: Realms, featuring Lands, to be released August 31st, 201
Here's the corporate for this product . . .
Most planes of existence have their own wondrous places. But only Planeswalkers can travel to lands beyond their own and call on their mana from across the Æther. You have seen dozens of realms, and those of your kind have told you of dozens more. Your bonds to these lands are the root of your power.
Contents and Details
• 15 Premium foil cards, including 7 with new art.
• An exclusive spindown life counter
• A collector's guide.
• Each card has been printed using a foil process unique to the From the Vault series.
• The 15 lands are all printed in the current card frame. For some, it is for the first time.
• From the Vault: Realms will be available world-wide in English only, and will have an extremely limited print run.
• All cards are black bordered and tournament legal. This means that these cards are legal for use in any tournaments where the original printings are still legal.

Product Concept and Development Team: Mark Gottlieb
Release Date: August 31, 2012
Commander / EDH, Modern, Legacy and Vintage players are all likely to go ga-ga over this and we suspect that this is another hit product for Wizards of the Coast. The preview art suggests either Glacial Chasm or Thawing Glaciers may be in the set.
We are personally hoping for Maze of Ith, Karakas, Dark Depths and / or Forbidden Orchard. Drop us a line or a comment below - what cards would make you happy were you to pull it from the box ?
Also of note - Great news from MTG Mint Card - They have restocked singles on one of our favourite recent sets - CONFLUX ! This is the set which brought you such notable cards as Noble Hierarch, Knight of the Reliquary, Progenitus among others. Click on over before they sell out.
