Happy Monday MTG peeps,
We here at MTG Realm are now firmly back in our seats and back on the interwebs after spending a week in 'meat space' enjoying all things analog and organic. We did get a chance to take in a Magic 2013 pre-release event at OMG! Games in Barrie on Sunday which we'll post about in a latter post. For now, we'll celebrate our return online with some Magic the Gathering news from the mothersite - the M13 Intro Pack decklists.
Each Magic 2013 Intro Pack contains
• 1 Premium Card
• 1 60-Card Deck
• 2 Boosters
• 1 Learn-To-Play Insert
• 1 Strategy Insert
Intro Packs hit local gaming stores on 13th July and has a suggested retail price of about $15.00, which we think provides decent value as they now have two booster packs. The Intro Pack is a great way for novice players to get into the game and are easily customized. We suggest that you may want to pick up additional Magic 2013 singles from MTG Mint Card to upgrade the decklist as your skill improves. Anywhoos - onto the lists . . .
