Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,
We now have in hand courtesy of WotC Monty, the decklists for the soon to be released Gatecrash Intro Packs. Magic: the Gathering Intro Packs are an inexpensive and great way to get into the game and the flavour of the most recent Magic: the Gathering set. As with the previous Return to Ravnica set, Gatecrash has five Intro Packs representing the five Guilds featured in the latest set.
Each Intro Pack contains two rares and a dozen uncommons ready to upgrade to your personal taste as you collect more cards - check out MTG Mint Card to score additional singles of the card you're looking for. For a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $15, here is what you can get in each Intro Pack :
• 1 60-card theme deck
• 1 premium foil card
• 2 (TWO!) Gatecrash booster packs
• strategy and rules insert
