Theros Events

~
Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

For today's post, we wanted to provide a handy-dandy reference post you can refer back to to check out all the game play events for the very next Magic: the Gathering set, Theros.  As many of you know, your local gaming store is usually anything but dull / boring and certainly not while we are at our local gamery shoppe, OMG! Games in Barrie.  Check the links off to the mothersite for the 4.1.1. on each event.  OHH - and check out the new Theros art 'spoiler' in the League event graphic - yep - looks just like one of the wonders of the ancient world - the Colossus of RhodesWizards of the Coast, along with that card shop in your neck 'o' the woods has a host of upcoming events and programs where you can n3rd out and get your fill of the newest MTG set coming this fall - let's have a looky-loo . . .
