WotC Announcement Day

Happy Friday MTG peeps,

It is the 'May 2-4' Holiday, also known at the Victoria Day long weekend here in Canada-Land.  Most Canadians will be celebrating Queen Victoria's birthday by spending most of the long weekend in traffic heading north from Toronto through my beautiful and fair hamlet of Barrie, on their way to cottage country in the North.  Upon arriving finally, they will then realise they did not bring enough beverages and insect repellent.

The MTG Realm group, as well as most Magic: the Gathering players have been waiting with bated breath in the much anticipated and speculated contents of today's 'Announcement Day' over at Wizards of the Coast.  This went live earlier today over at this link and featured a great video with following crew ::

Here is the 'quick 'n' dirty' summary of the rather exciting news for Magic: the Gathering gamers -

Guilds of Ravnica releases October 5, 2018

On Ravnica, whoever you are a soldier or scientist, merchant or spy, your guild is the core of your identity. It provides structure and greater purpose. Now, the time has come to defend it.  This set will prominently feature the harmonious Selesnya (green-white), the militant Boros (red-white), the life-and-death-focused Golgari (black-green), the frazzled geniuses of the Izzet (blue-red), and the mystery of the Dimir (blue-black).

Ravnica Allegiance  - releases January 2019

Darkness is coming to Ravnica. A conflict that could tear apart the world itself looms large, and the fragile peace between the guilds is strained to its breaking point. Now, with everything on the line, it's time to step up, prove your loyalty, and fight for your guild.  This set will feature the orderly Azorius (white-blue), the chaotic Rakdos (black-red), the wild Gruul (red-green), the experimental Simic (green-blue), and the devious Orzhov (white-black)

Guild Kits - releases November 2018 / February 2019

Guild Kits will feature a 60-card deck flavored after your favorite guild, plus guild schwag like pins, stickers, and Spindown life counters. Play as any one of the Guilds of Ravnica guilds with the Guilds of Ravnica Guild Kits releasing on November 2, 2018. Ravnica Allegiance Guild Kits release February 2019.

There was also a rather nice preview of a pair of cards from the upcoming Battlebond set !

Say 'wassup' to Pir, Imaginative Rascal and that card's partner, 'Toothy, Imaginary Friend'.
