Happy Monday MTG peeps,
Big day today for Magic: the Gathering players as Wizards of the Coast kick off with the first day of official Eldritch Moon previews. For your 'to do' list today -
• Watch the second episode of Access Magic
'Twisted Innistrad' with host Jimmy Wong has guest Jeremy Jarvis and Jenna Helland on to speak on to the story and art side to Eldritch Moon. The big preview card delivered by Community Manager Dan Barrett (who looks absolutely dead tired?) delivers a whopping EMN preview, which we've covered below.
MTG Rules Guru Matt Tabak goes over the new mechanics / themes in this post linked here for the new set which also include demonstrative previews of the set's cards (again summarised below). MTG Realm will have a separate post tomorrow hopefully with comments on the new mechanics. The new tech to expect are as follows -
New mechanics - Meld, Emerge, Escalate
Returning mechanics - Double-faced Cards, Madness, Delirium
• Over the Moon, part 1
Mark Rosewater in his regular column of 'Making Magic' goes over the concept and design team details as well as delivering a preview.
On to today's Eldritch Moon previews !
