Happy Monday MTG peeps,
Friday evening was most interesting at OMG! Games & Collectibles here in Barrie, Ontario. Very hot / humid weather all day long with a swiftly moving cold front produced some pretty crazy violent weather and a number of tornado warnings. You can check out some of the images posted of this weather event across southern Ontario on the Twitter machine here. Inside the relative safety of the store, MTG Realm provided the OMG! Games with a few very cool random swag give-aways - a few awesome deckboxes and portfolios from BCW Supplies. All the players were yattering about the upcoming Magic: the Gathering set, Khans of Tarkir and we have to report that the players we've talked with are most definitely excited to game with the cards. To sort yourself out with one of five Clans which you would most identify with, take the quiz here on the mothersite.
Anywhoos - a ton of spoilers today, and although we only have space to cover off the rares / mythic rares in this post, rest assured that we will update our Khans of Tarkir Spoiler List with all the newly previewed cards. Let's get on to today's new coolness !
