Happy Friday MTG peeps,
As we head into the weekend, don't forget to get on out and play some Magic: the Gathering at a Friday Night Magic event being held at your local gaming store. We have yet another edited build we'll be taking to OMG! Games here in Barrie, Ontario thanks to a few card singles from MTG Mint Card which hopefully will land us in the Top 8.
Anywhoos, the big news today is of course the massive spoiler via a Magic 2015: Duels of the Planeswalker video walk-through from the digital games review site IGN and Wizards of the Coast Brand Manager Liz Lamb-Ferro. The new 'n' improved MTG digital game to be released within a few weeks time of the Magic 2015 core set (analog game) shares a high level of integration with it and of course a number of cards. From the walk-through we are able to determine with some certainty some new or reprinted cards we would likely see in the physical M15 core set game.
