Zendikar Spoiler 2

As we have just covered another Magic the Gathering Zendikar Spoiler just yesterday with some product packaging, we thought we might just roll into another one for today.

The regular release of the popular 'Key Selling Points' document is not only important for Magic the Gathering product distributors to pass along important information to their retail clients but also important to the fan community (read: spoiler nutters like you and me) as it provides some additional colour on the spoiler pallete.

You can either skim through this Zenkidar document summary here on MTG Realm or click HERE which will take you to the full document hosted on scribd.

This 192-page action-packed collection combines the entire planeswalker web comic series, as well as a never-before-seen bonus comic for MSRP $19.95.

In this popular anthology, readers get adventures from all their favorite planeswalkers including battles between mind-mage Jace Beleren and the impulsive pyromancer Chandra Naalar. The mercurial necromancer Liliana Vess tangles with the savage Garruk Wildspeaker and readers learn more of the artificer Tezzeret's past with the Seekers of Carmot.

It features lavish illustrations by some of the industry's best known artists such as Mark Texeira, Christopher Moeller, Jason Shawn Alexander, and Aleksi Briclot.
