Happy Friday MTG peeps,
As it is Friday, get thee to a Gamery Shoppe this evening and participate in a Friday Night Magic Event - call ahead (locator over here) to see what the format(s) is(are). We've got a few standard homebrew decklists to try out at OMG! Games here in Barrie latter - perhaps that crazy 5C Slivers during matches and an interested Boros build inbetween.
Anywhoos - today we've got news about the next wave of Magic the Gathering Pop! Vinyl Figures. These 3.75 inch tall super stylized vinyl figures were first released in in April, 2014 and featured iconic Magic: The Gathering Planeswalkers Jace Beleren, Garruk Wildspeaker, Chandra Nalaar, Liliana Vess, Ajani Goldmane, and Nissa Revane.
The first series of POP! Magic is being quickly followed by a second. The first series flew out the door. This series brings 6 new characters including the fantastic oversized Nicol Bolas, a sure-fire hit! Be sure to collect the corresponding MTG card singles as well over at MTG Mint Card. These are expected to hit store shelves in October, 2014 and are expected to go for between $10 and $12 bucks depending how far removed your village is from the rest of humanity. Here's the line-up -
Elder dragon and tyrant of worlds, Nicol Bolas is one of the oldest known beings in the Multiverse. Mana hungry and wielding a triple threat of blue, black, and red spells, he’s a force of villainous destruction, crushing all magic—and minds—that stand in his way.
The merfolk Planeswalker Kiora, a native of Zendikar, has been traveling the planes to strengthen her connection to the oceans' magic. Her home has been ravaged by the Eldrazi swarm, and she believes that only by summoning the fierce krakens, serpents, and other terrors of the deep can she defeat the titans who now rule Zendikar.
Born on a plane ruined by strife and darkness, this white mage left home when her Planeswalker spark ignited—and she never returned. Elspeth specializes in community and fortification, wielding spells that build and bolster mighty armies, while protecting them from harm.
Unlike most Planeswalkers, Gideon doesn’t hesitate to enter combat. This powerful white mage is driven by loyalty and practices hieromancy, the magic of holy justice.
Sarkhan Vol wields red-green shamanic magic, specifically spells that summon dragons and evoke their rage. He follows the commands of the elder dragon Nicol Bolas … but will he live to regret his choice of masters?
Tezzeret seeks perfection of body and mind. He specializes in blue artifice magic: spells that forge and manipulate artifacts, sometimes even bringing them to life. A talented artificer from the Alara shard of Esper, his body is enhanced with the magical alloy etherium, a practice common among Esperites.
