Happy Monday MTG peeps,
We trust that all had an amazing Theros PreRelease weekend. Here at MTG Realm, we attended the Friday midnight PreRelease event at OMG! Games in Barrie, Ontario where approximately 45 players gamed from just shortly after midnight to almost 5 in the morning. After that event, we most definitely wanted to get more of Theros sealed at the Satuday and Sunday events but unfortunately just could not make it due to some other things which popped up. That's OK we guess - that'll just mean some extra cash for some MTG singles at MTG Mint Card and to grab boosters when Theros officially releases this Friday the 27th.
Speaking of which, we came across an image posted on the interwebs - that Gift from the Gods poster for the Theros Release which is actually a very clever puzzle from Wizards of the Coast. SPOILER ALERT ! - If you want to solve the poster puzzle for yourself, please do not read on.
At Theros Release Weekend, which starts with Friday Night Magic that first evening, you’ll see a unique and mysterious poster emblazoned with the Hero’s Path symbol. This poster is a puzzle sent from the gods as a message to their chosen Hero.
Enter this ancient temple and gaze upward, for the barrier between the mortal world and the realm of the gods is thin here: you can see the starlight shining through, connecting their worlds to ours.
Indeed, the gods have emblazoned a sacred message, dotted amongst the stars themselves, that only the cleverest of mortals will be able to interpret.
Doing so correctly will allow you to identify a specific creature from the Theros set.
Next up - it appears someone had finally snapped and posted an image of the Game Day playmat. If you happen to place first at the Theros Game Day event on the weekend of 19th October, you can score this pretty slick playmat featuring art from the card Vanquish the Foul, illustrated by the amazing Eric Deschamps.
