Happy Friday MTG peeps,
We need to get to some catching up with today's post. Specifically, we need to yatter to you about Planechase (2012 Edition) which will be released on 1 June, 2012. This fun Magic the Gathering variant format is a follow-up to the successful debut of first release in 2009 and will be available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. Look to MTG Realm on or about when we unbox a pack and provide reviews.
The four new Planechase decks (named Chaos Reigns, Night of the Ninja, Primordial Hunger, and Savage Auras) will contain all-new planar decks with oversized 'phenomena' and 'plane' cards as well as an assortment of new, Eternal-legal Magic cards.
Each deck will have eight new plane cards and two new phenomenon cards, and these cards are not shared between decks; there are a total of 32 new planes and 8 new phenomena. There are a total of 21 new Magic cards in the set, spread across the four decks. Each deck has six of the cards (counting by name), although some appear in multiples. Each of the four decks contains a sixty-card Magic deck, a ten-card planar deck, and a planar die. The MSRP for these are about $20 each so head down to your local games store and get one reserved for you today.
Here are some cards to date - either from the forums or from MTG Judge and EDH / Commander legend Sheldon Menery on Commander.net . . .
