Konami Digital Entertainment announced Dimension Force, a new booster set for Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG, which set to hit stores on May 20, 2022.

ARC-V-themed deck strategies like “Performapal” cards and a new “Odd-Eyes” monster.

The booster set’s rarity breakdown is as follows: 50 Commons, 26 Super Rares, 14 Ultra Rares, 10 Secret Rares. Packs will retail for $4.19 each.

WIZARDS OF THE COAST ANNOUNCES ‘MAGIC: THE GATHERING’ BRAND COLLABORATION WITH POST MALONE

Source: https://icv2.com/articles/news/view/50033/wizards-coast-announces-magic-the-gathering-brand-collaboration-post-malone

Wizards of the Coast announced a Magic: The Gathering brand collaboration with singer Post Malone to promote the Friday Night Magic program.
The return of OP to gaming stores in 2021(see “U.S. In-Store Play Suspension for ‘Magic: The Gathering’ Will End Soon”) will be followed up by a year-long celebration of Magic’s return to stores involving a partnership with Magic celebrity super fan Post Malone. Although the full nature of the partnership has not been disclosed, it will involve promoting the FNM program as more stores return to OP as the pandemic winds down.

“You’d be hard-pressed to find a bigger fan of Magic: The Gathering than Post Malone,” said Nathan Stewart, Head of Franchise Marketing for WotC. “As a fan for years, he knows just how much Friday Night Magic means to players. We’re thrilled to collaborate with Posty in ways that will allow his signature style, talent and love of the game to combine in ways fans will never forget.”

Malone’s relationship with Magic, to this point, has been as a player, a collector, and a social influencer. Earlier this year, Malone was reported to have spent thousands of dollars at a Frank & Son Collectible Show (see “Post Malone Spends Thousands on ‘Magic: The Gathering’ Singles”). With this announcement, WotC now appears to be looking to leverage Malone’s star influence in a more official capacity to promote the Magic: The Gathering brand.

‘MAGIC’S’ COMMANDER RC BANS ONE CARD AND UNBANS ANOTHER

The Commander Rules Committee (RC) updated their banned list for Magic: The Gathering’s Commander/EDH format on September 13.

In the update, the Commander RC banned Golos, Tireless Pilgrim from the Commander/EDH format. Golos was released in Core Set 2020 in 2019, and had actually previously been a problem card for the Standard format alongside Field of the Dead (see “Announcement’ Date Moved Up“). The RC gave the following reason for finally banning Golos in EDH:

Its presence crushes the kind of diversity in commander choice which we want to promote.  You can drop in Golos and a few 5-color lands into a random deck and get all the ramp and card advantage you would ever want from a commander, with no worries about your mana base.  Golos’ ability effectively reduces the commander tax to one and once you hit seven mana…

The Commander RC also made a decision to unban Worldfire, a mythic rare from Magic Core Set 2013. This card was previously banned because of problems it created an unfair advantage for the caster who could float mana and cast their commander after Worldfire resolved. It was unbanned because the 2021 Commander environment features cheaper ways, mana-wise, of producing a similar effects.
