Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
Magic: the Gathering players now have in hand the decklists for each Dragon's Maze Intro Pack. Check out today's Magic Arcana post on the mothersite by WotC Daily MTG miser Trick Jarrett. Dragon's Maze is the third and final set in the Return to Ravnica block and features all ten Ravnica Guilds. Intro Packs are a great way for newer players to jump into the game or for more seasoned players to get their head into the new set. Personally, we here at MTG Realm enjoy battling each other with different Intro Packs as they are typically well balanced and offer a lot of MTG fun without getting too competitive. For EDH Commander players, this may be an opportunity to pick up that new foil General you are after.
Anywhoos - drop by your local gaming store to pick one up. For a very reasonable MSRP of only $15, here's what you get :
• 1 premium (foil) card,~
• 1 pre-constructed 60-card deck,
• 2 Dragon's Maze boosters (15 cards each),
• 1 learn-to-play insert,
• 1 strategy insert.
