Commander's Arsenal Spoiler

Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

As we had told you way back on August 10th, Magic: the Gathering players can expect a new Commander (aka EDH) product once a year which replaces the Premium Deck Series products.  Unfortunately, this year does not feature a new Commander product but rather a special ‘Commander’s Arsenal’ which will be hitting gaming store shelves on 2nd November and which Wizards has promised will contain Commander staples ‘n’ goodies.  The MRSP for this is $75 which in our opinion is a titch steep but we will not yet pass judgement on this until we see the full list of cards and item details.
EDIT - Full Commander's Arsenal list now spoiled - see below.
Speaking of contents, WoTC minion Trick Jarrett unveiled a few juicy items on the mothersite yesterday - here's a summary . . .

New - premium foil cards:
• Chaos Warp
• Command Tower (new art)
• Diaochan, Artful Beauty
• Dragonlair Spider
• Duplicant (new art)
• Kaalia of the Vast
• Loyal Retainers
• Rhystic Study
• Sylvan Library
• The Mimeoplasm

Oversized Cards
• Azusa, Lost but Seeking
• Brion Stoutarm
• Glissa, the Traitor
• Grimgrin, Corpse-born
• Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund
• Mayael the Anima
• Sliver Queen

Personally, although we think the oversized commander cards are kewl, we will like just leave them on the shelf and not use them on the game table.  We really want to get back into EDH / Commander again but want to track down some additional cards at MTG Mint Card before taking our decks for a spin.  Here's a quick bullet list of what you can expect when you crack open the new Commander’s Arsenal box -

• 18 premium foil cards

• 10 oversized premium foil cards

• 120 UltraPRO foil card sleeves

• 20 double-sided Battle Marks (+ and –)

• A life counter that goes up to 99

EDIT - full list now spoiled -
