Battles of Legend: Hero’s Revengearrives on the scene in July, ready to turn the summer on its head! This 93-card, all-foil booster set is packed with never-before-released cards from previous Yu-Gi-Oh! anime and manga series coming to the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME for the first time, new Link Monsters, high-powered tournament mainstays, and more!
Here’s a taste of what’s in store for Duelists:
Number 93: Utopia Kaiser, originally available only to those who reached the pinnacle of competition, makes its public debut! Fans of “Number” monsters will have even more to look forward to in Battles of Legend: Hero’s Revenge.More “Vision HERO” monsters from the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX manga series appear, along with related “HERO” cards like Vision HERO Vyon.Brand-new Link Monsters for a variety of Deck themes like PSY-Frames, Traptrix, Black Luster Soldier, and more.In-demand tournament-level cards like Borrelsword Dragon and Sky Striker Mobilize – Engage!Popular tournament-level cards available as foils for the first time, like Dinowrestler Pankratops, Artifact Lancea, and Summon Limit.
Each 5-card pack contains 4 Ultra Rares and 1 Secret Rare.
What’s more, each of these 36 Planeswalkers will have a planeswalker card in War of the Spark. (The card art will be different, though—in fact, these stained-glass versions aren’t appearing on cards at all!) You’ll have to wait for War of the Spark previews in April to see the new cards, but each booster pack will contain a planeswalker so you should have no trouble getting your hands on them when the set is released.
Each day brings us closer to Nicol Bolas’s endgame, but until all those candles are snuffed out, we can at least admire the craftsmanship that went into these pretty windows.
WizKids will release a social deduction game set in the Magic: The Gathering plane of Ravnica, Ravnica: Inquisition, in June.
Players can join the Gatewatch or pledge their loyalty to Nicol Bolas, then attempt to uncover the Agents of Bolas who are hiding amongst them. Players elect leaders for each of the 5 colors, but only players whose guild’s color pair contain the color may be voted for. Each color leader has a special power they can use to further their goals, so players must be careful who they vote for. After all five colors have leaders, they vote to eliminate 1 player. This continues until the dust settled, and players reveal their roles. If all the Agents of Bolas are eliminated, the Gatewatch wins.
The box contains 10 role cards, 10 guild cards, 5 color leader cards, 5 targeting cards, ablaze marker, ultimate price marker, notepad, pencil, and a rulebook. The game is for 5 – 10 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 15 -30 minutes. MSRP is $14.99.
Fantasy Flight Games announced a new phase of organized play for its anomalous deck game KeyForge, which premiered last year. Designed by Richard Garfield (Magic: The Gathering), KeyForge is a competitive card game where each deck is unique. The first phase of organized play, the Dawn of Discovery, launched in November (see “Organized Play Program for ‘KeyForge’ Revealed”) and focused on familiarizing players with the game and getting them familiar with the variety of playing styles the game offers.
On January 22, the Time of Triumph begins, offering players chances to establish themselves as a powerful force among Archons. The Master Vault will open, and new purposes will be revealed. The local ChainBound tournaments (hosted by retailers) will become more valuable, as they will award players AEmbershards for participating. The AEmbershards will eventually be redeemed at events with a Prize Wall for prizes.
Retailers can order Seasonal Kits to support Open Play Nights, and Seasonal Premium Kits will add custom prizes (themed around specific houses) that game stores can use to run special, standalone events.
Regional Prime Championships and Grand Championships (one per nation/territory) will be added, all leading to the World Championship.
Just like the previous version of Mythic Edition, Ravnica Allegiance Mythic Editionwill go on sale for $249.99 and contain 24 packs, eight of which will come with one planeswalker card inside the pack (plus the normal rare or mythic rare card; the packs will be clearly marked).
The eight special packs will each come with one of these planeswalkers, and the packs will be clearly marked with which planeswalker is in which pack.
Real talk—the sale of Guilds of Ravnica Mythic Edition did not go well. It wasn’t ideal. Given what we learned from that experience and the (mountains of) feedback we received, we’re changing things up for this round.
Ravnica Allegiance Mythic Edition will be sold through Hasbro’s ebay store. This accomplishes a few things. First, it means the product can be shipped globally rather than just to North America. Second, and just as important, we expect a smoother buying experience for anyone who attempts to purchase the product.
It will go on sale at noon PT (3 p.m. ET/8 p.m. GMT) on Thursday, January 24.
Because the product is available internationally, this also means we will not be selling any product directly through MagicFests as we did with the Guilds of Ravnica edition. There will be a limit of 2 per customer.
Mythic Edition is a fun premium product that players clearly were interested in, so we want to make the buying experience as positive and as smooth as possible. These changes address many of the issues we had with distribution last time around, and I know I personally look forward to dropping that sweet, sweet Tamiyo, the Moon Sage on the table.
