Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
Wow - Just another big news day for Magic: the Gathering fans. Sit tight as we stroll through a selection of items.
First item - Some interesting news from Mike Linnemann over at Gathering Magic, who indicates in this article, that there may be a discussion and agreements in the works with Magic: the Gathering artists, Wizards of the Coast and Ultra PRO to produce playmats, and perhaps other items - read all about it over at G.M.
Some very bold things were being said by an anonymous poster over on the 4Chan traditional gaming boards (linked here). Essentially, after we are finished with the second set in the Shadows Over Innistrad block (Eldritch Moon), we are to have a block with an Egyptian mythology theme with the sets named 'Secrets of Sivagat' and 'Fury of the Sand'. After this, another (third) return to Ravnica with a set called 'War of the Guilds'. All very unofficial and we won't put any stock into these murmurings until something a little more substantial is provided.
Righto - as today's post title says - a Conspiracy Plot Twist.
We feel that since the initial announcement on Monday, there have been more Conspiracy plot twists than a M. Night Shyamalan movie. We direct your attention to the mothersite link here.
The King Is Dead, Long Live the King
Oops. Apparently no one is safe when even a seemingly immortal ghost-king cannot hold the throne.
The Conspiracy: The Empty Throne set builds on the revolutionary abilities introduced in the original Magic: The Gathering—Conspiracy set, with new cards that affect the draft itself and new conspiracies that twist the rules against your foes. Trade votes and spread your attacks to manipulate the game in your favor. The throne is empty and chaos reigns. How will you survive?
This set is designed for eight-player drafts followed by free-for-all games of three to five players each.
Set Name - Conspiracy: The Empty Throne
Number of Cards:
Release Date: August 26, 2016

Looking very much forward !
