Happy Thursday MTG peeps,
We are very much excited to take some new standard format decklists to our local gaming store, OMG! Games, here in Barrie, Ontario this weekend to see how the standard environment is shaping up. We hope to report back on the success (or challenges) of our Blue-Red Ensoul Artifact, Black-Green Constellation, and Blue-White Control lists we have.
We are also excited about the recent announcements of Commander 2015, Legendary Cube, the awesome announcement of full-art lands in Battle for Zendikar and today's word on the 2015 Holiday Gift Box. To this end, here is a summary from our sister site, MTG Realm on Tumblr !
Magic: the Gathering - The 2015 Holiday Gift BoxWhatever the fate of Zendikar may be, you can get your hands on this product come November. The box itself can hold more than 2,000 Magic cards and is available worldwide in English on November 19, 2015. You get more than just a beautiful box in which to store your cards for the MSRP of $24.99.

Magic: the Gathering - Commander 2015 UpdateAn update from yesterday’s posted here on MTG Realm. The official announcement for Commander 2015 was put up today with the following product description -
Choose your commander for this unique multiplayer Magic format. New cards offer new play options, and experience counters will make your commander grow in power during the course of each game. Two-color decks allow for surprising synergies and opportunities to devastate your foes.
The set will feature five two-color—enemy pair—100-card Commander decks, along with 55 new Magic cards legal in Eternal formats (Vintage and Legacy), but not legal in Standard, Block Constructed, or Modern. Each deck will contain fifteen new cards.

What does it all mean ?~
