MTG Path of Vengeance

Happy Monday MTG peeps,

On the weekend, we dropped over to Big B Comics here in Barrie, Ontario to pick up some missing issues in both of our Magic: the Gathering comic book series.  A very helpful staff member dug around in the back room and was able to complete our collection of the initial MTG Comic series, as well as the next one, Spell Thief.  Here is a quick run down of the special promo cards of each comic in the series so far . . .

Magic: the Gathering Comics IDW Promo Cards :
• Treasure Hunt
• Faithless Looting
• Feast of Blood
• Electrolyze

Magic: the Gathering Comics IDW Spell Thief Promo Cards :
• Arrest
• Consume Spirit
• Standstill
• Breath of Malfegor

We are now consider picking up a few of the non-promo / regular cards from MTG Mint Card to work out a few casual fun builds we are contemplating right now.  Anywhoos - onto today's post!  The next Magic: the Gathering comic series to be issued by Wizards of the Coast and IDW Publishing is called 'Path of Vengeance'.  This story line again features the badboy Planeswalker Thief, Dack Fayden in all sorts of mischief in the City of Ravnica.  We expect a few promo cards here is see print in either Gatecrash or Dragon's Maze in the current Return to Ravnica block.  We've provided the anticipated release date of each comic but please don't hold your breath - their record of street release dates are pretty bad (perhaps this has something to do with possible spoilers and official previews?).

I've definitely been digging the Dack Fayden story arc, but I'm kind of wondering when, if ever, Wizards will decide to cannonize him into the regular storyline. Also, I love the promo art on the cards, it just gives your game that little extra touch of uniqueness when playing someone
