Sales are now live!
Just in off the wire we now have official confirmation of a few new products and services Wizards of the Coast are about to unleash on the Magic: The Gathering crowd and beyond. Thanks to public information located on the TESS System we can now provide you with the following list.
The one I find most interesting to speculate on right out of the gate is Spellslinger! Is this new potential MTG tournament software for WPN and DCI? It also looks like this is the new marketing tag line for new products Magic: The Gathering related.
Manastrike and Planesiege is anybody’s guess. WOTC has stated that future “Master Styled Sets” will be themed and these set names could match that criteria. With a big anouncement list set for Friday we may get more information on what this all means for the game of Magic: The Gathering
Magic: The Gathering Arena from a casual MTG super fans point of view.
I just want to start off by saying just how fun it has been to be a part of Magic: The Gathering Arena as a Beta Tester from very early on… I think? I feel like I am a part of MTG gaming history since I know the weight and impact Arena is about to have on the Magic: The Gathering community. For those of us who have had the opportunity to watch the game grow and get better with each version it has been a fun ride.
After having played 60 card constructed, single elimination, no side board decks, consisting of cards made up from the Ixalan Block only, you realize how intricately designed this set is and how it feels like it was built specifically to launch Arena. Dinosaurs, Vampires, Merfolk, a really strong Control Deck, awesome new Mana. The Power Level really shines on it’s own and looking at Dominaria (also an amazing set) things are really going to open up with the addition of Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation. I foresee a Sea of Red tonight.
So in short – Arena is a huge home run for fans of Magic: The Gathering. Basically if you have the time you will be able to play for free, and from what I can see – that is the #1 complaint among all active players. Lets face it Paper Magic can be damaging to the wallet. The average Standard Format player wants something that’s going to win so they build their best ride or die deck. Arena will put an end to all of that. You will be able to test cards at unmatched speed, with no guess work at all on how a new card interacts. You will be able to quickly change up decks and brewing becomes fun again with far less financial risk, opening up the META. Problem cards will be identified very early on lessening the effects of any card being banned.
Read on to check out more of our thoughts on the new Magic Arena!
Today is going to be one massive Magic: The Gathering information dump. After an abysmal Masters 25 set with an awful Mythic slot, it would seem WOTC has put all of it’s MTG 25th anniversary attention into Dominaria. All the news surrounding Dominaria – Saga, Mox Amber and New Legendary Frames all of this awesome lore on top of it. This set is the Magic: The Gathering 25th Anniversary set.
Look at this awesome new Buy-a-Box preorder promo card Firesong and Sunspeaker for the new format idea, Brawl – Commander using only Standard Legal cards. This is one of the best ideas I see having a lasting effect. I’m already brewing… Could this have digital implications for Arena? More on that later on tonight (as the embargo lifts) so we can review Arena and give our Beta Test Review of this awesome new system.
Until then enjoy this pocket of images from all over the web of Dominaria card drops with new frames.
Just announced for players of Magic: The Gathering – Signature Spellbook: Jace! A collection of eight cards plus one random premium foil version of one of those eight cards. Each card has Jace-flavored art and special frames just for this set.
This is the first in a series of Magic: The Gathering Spell Book Sets that will feature members of the Gatewatch at first and hopefully will expand. The product will launch at $20 and looks amazing. They could have given us a better version of Jace but the set overall is a solid secondary premium product. Nice updated feel and the foils will be amazing. Also it is important to note this product replaces From The Vault sets that will be discontinued.

Toyark recently received our brand spanking new Sakura Elven Assassin, Cerisier from Boss Fight Studio. This figure is off the charts awesome for any fantasy games fan of any kind or fantasy art lover. Lets not even get started with the connection to MTG and D&D. If your into Boss Fight Studio action figures this is one I would not pass on.
Order you here Sakura Elven Assassin, Cerisier from Boss Fight Studio.
“Guardians of the elven queen, members of this elite corps of archers bathe daily in dark ink, to maintain the gray color of their skin. Taking their orders directly from Queen Solan, they are her protectors and personal assassins. As a part of their duties to the queen, they take on an oath of silence. Their voices are removed permanently and irreversibly, using a magical spell. Their eyes have been altered so that they can see in pitch blackness. Moving undetectably and noiselessly, their natural home is in the dark. The last thing many an enemy of the Elves has felt is the cold blade of a Sakura Elf, silently draining their life away.”
