Happy Monday MTG peeps,
We hope to get to our post of the Mirrodin Besieged Pre-Release we took in at OMG Games yesterday (Sunday) perhaps tomorrow. We did show up on Saturday around 10 minutes after registration opened and they had already filled their capacity of 64 players - one of the best turn-outs we can remember. Sunday was a solid showing as well with around 24 players but we failed rather miserably with building our sealed pooled which resulted in a draw, loss and loss before dropping to go home and admire our new card goodness.
Anywhoos - today's post -
Late last week, Wizards posted their sales solicitation flyer for the third set in the Scars of Mirrodin block, code-named 'Action' scheduled to be released May 13, 2011. Action will be properly named 'Mirrodin Pure' or 'New Phyrexia' and will only be revealed at the last moment and will reveal whether the Mirrans or Phyrexians are victorious in the battle for the plane of Mirrodin. This set will contain 175 cards and the tagline for the set is either "The Sharpest Steel is Tempered in Fire" (Mirrodin Pure) or "The Grand Compleation is Achieved" (New Phyrexia), and the expansion symbol will match the respective Mirran or Phyrexian watermarks found on nearly all non-land cards from Scars of Mirrodin and Mirrodin Besieged.
Returning with “Action” are Event Decks. These 60-card decks come with a 15-card sideboard and are intended for use in Standard play tournaments like Friday Night Magic or Game Day. They also come with a Spindown life counter and a reusable card box. Also, with the release of “Action” Wizards will return to five versions of the Intro Packs as opposed to the four versions in Mirrodin Besieged.
