Happy Monday MTG peeps,
A quick update today for you. We have another card Magic: the Gathering players should be happy with which was previewed today by WotC Bob Maher on the mothersite.
Modern Masters is a booster-based specialty set containing cards which are legal in the Modern format. It will be released on June 7, 2013. Modern Masters is a 229 card set consisting of reprints of cards originally printed between Eighth Edition and Alara Reborn. Every card would be legal in Modern format and of course the other formats in which the sets are legal from which the cards originate. The idea behind the design was to fulfill the player demand of reprinting certain cards to make them more easily available to current or prospective Modern players, without re-introducing those cards into Standard. We still have a lot of cards to go before the full reveal and already want to get a singles (or decksets) from MTG Mint Card.
Anywhoos - let's get on with today's new card - Dark Confident will be joining the 3 other known (or strongly suspected) cards - Tarmogoyf, City of Brass and Aether Spellbomb.
In other related news, WotC 'Trick also had a post to the mothersite's Magic Arcana showing a very lovely Modern Masters UltraPRO box (and sleeves!) in which to horde all your awesome new cards. The City of Brass art from Jung Park is spectacular.
