FRF PreRelease Prep

Happy Monday MTG peeps,

As the last of the Fate Reforged previews wrapped up on Friday, Magic: the Gathering players have now shifted their collective focus on the Fate Reforged PreRelease events taking place this weekend (17th / 18th January).  If you are looking for an event near you, click on over to the handy WotC Store / Event locator page.  MTG Realm will be heading off to OMG! Games here in Barrie, Ontario where starting at midnight Friday (after Friday Night Magic), they will be running a total of six events over Saturday and Sunday.

If you have not been to a prerelease event, just know that it is a ton of fun.  To learn about what to expect, we strongly suggest reading Gavin Verhey's excellent and extensive article on the mothersite today.  The only thing we will highlight is take the 'Choose your Clan' Quiz to see which of the five clans are most aligned with you.

Something else you may wish to consider is which mechanics (keyword abilities) associated with each Clan wins your affection - 

Abzan - Bolster N - Choose a creature with the least toughness among creatures you control. Put N +1/+1 counters on it.

Jeskai - Prowess - whenever you cast a noncreature spell, this creature gets +1/+1 until end of turn.

Sultai - Delve - cost reduction, Each card you exile from your graveyard while casting this spell pays for a colorless mana.

Mardu - Dash - You may cast this spell for its dash cost. If you do, it gains haste, and it's returned from the battlefield to its owner's hand at the beginning of the next end step.

Temur - Ferocious provides an advantageous effect if the player controls a creature with power 4 or greater while attacking with a creature with Ferocious or casting a spell with it.

Lastly, you may also wonder what exactly may in the Fate Reforged PreRelease Pack - 
• 4 Fate Reforged booster packs
• 1 Khans of Tarkir booster pack
• 1 seeded booster pack (includes one of six different PreRelease promo which you may play in your sealed deck)
• 1 Activity insert
• 1 Clan information card
• 1 Spindown Life Counter

• 1 clan identity button

You can also score an Ugin's Fate booster pack which contains 3 playable Magic cards from either Khans of Tarkir or Fate Reforged: 
• 1 Fate Reforged basic land, 
• 1 common, and 
• 1 uncommon or rare card
