Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,

ReMix, a vintage clothing store in Yachiyo City (Chiba Prefecture, Tokyo, Japan) posted this image also it appears runs sactioned Wizards of the Coast events such as Friday Night Magic, and product release events.
See Update Below

Anywhoos - thanks to this MTG fan in Tokyo, we now have images of the Magic 2012 promotional poster which shows the Pre-Release, Launch and Game Day promo cards. These, of course, are in Japanese but thanks to the collective efforts of forum users, we have rough translations. Again, we caution our readers to look to the mothership for official previews.

A quick word about Standard Format Rotation

Standard now rotates only once each year, with the release of the October large set. So Magic 2012 will enter Standard on its release without knocking anything out, then Magic 2011 and Zendikar block will leave Standard with the release of Innistrad. The Standard format between Magic 2012 and Innistrad will consist of Zendikar block, Scars of Mirrodin block, Magic 2011, and Magic 2012. After the release of Innistrad, it will consist of Scars of Mirrodin Block, Magic 2012, and Innistrad.
