Theros PW Guide 1

Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

Very exciting stuff over on the mothersite today if you are a Magic: the Gathering fan looking for some storyline / flavor from this fall's upcoming set Theros.  Due to be released on 27 September 2013, this large MTG set has an ancient Greek theme full of gods, heroes, and mythological monsters.

With today's first of three installments of 'Planeswalker's Guide to Theros', the MTG creative team provided some brief descriptions of the Plane of Theros, the land of Nyx, Enchantments, and Gods.  The second PW guide is to describe the major poleis or cities of Theros — that of Meletis, Akros and Setessa.  A very intriguing note about how these new 'god' cards may manifest themselves within game play - today's article describes the gods as living enchantments. With today's PW Guide installment, Wizards also provided artwork of possible legendary artifacts associated with each of the five gods of Theros.  Without speculating too much, we might suggest that you not trade away any Artificer's Hex from the Magic 2014 core set - in fact you may just want to pick us some extra singles from MTG Mint Card.

Anywhoos - let's have a look at some of the new Theros arts now . . .
