Happy Thursday MTG peeps,
Some very lovely Avacyn Restores spoilers out today - essentially the entire line-up of products which of course, being fans of the game we will want to spend some time carefully reviewing the art on all the packaging and start speculation as to what this next Magic the Gathering set may have for us. Stay tuned for the next few posts as well provide a post for . . .
• Avacyn Restored Boosters / Booster Box,
• Avacyn Restored Event Decks / Fat Packs, and
• Avacyn Restored Intro Packs
Here's the essential 4.1.1. for the set - Avacyn Restored is the third set in the Innistrad block, being released May 4, 2012. It is the fifty-eighth expansion for Magic. Prerelease Events will take place April 28-29, 2012 and Launch Parties will take place May 4-6, 2012. Game Day will be on May 25-26, 2012. This set contains 244 cards. Make sure you speak with your local Games Store to reserve or pre-order what you want. Personally, we already have our orders in to OMG! Games here in Central Ontario and would buy it right now if we had a time machine.
Anwyhoos - Let's have a look at the Event Decks and Fat Packs . .
Event Decks offer a competitive 60 card deck with a 15 card sideboard, a Spindown life counter and strategy guide. These decks are perfect for use in Standard play tournaments like Friday Night Magic or Game Day celebrations. The Event decks look to be mono-black (featuring a zombie art?) called 'Death's Encroach', and Blue / White (featuring a Cleric / Cathar ?) called 'Humanity's Vengeance'.
Each Avacyn Restored Fat Pack contains 9 Avacyn Restored booster packs, The Avacyn Restored Player's Guide, 1 learn-to-play insert, 1 pack of 40 Avacyn Restored basic land, 2 deck boxes, and 1 Avacyn Restored Life Counter.
