The next set of Magic cards is (almost) here. Battle for Zendikar is a return to one of our all time favorite settings, Zendikar, a lush world where even the lands come alive to defend against one of the all-time scary set of uber-monsters in all of Magic, the Eldrazi (the race that featured creatures that would make Godzilla look like a pet hamster such as Emarkul, the 15/15 protection from every color beast that is still the biggest and baddest critter in all of Magic.)
This epic struggle features the lands coming alive to help out, and with it comes the favored full art lands in every pack. As if that wasn’t enough, there are super rare lands that aren’t actually from the set, the Expedition lands. These lands are special full art versions of the Fetch and Shock lands. If you happen to be lucky enough to pull one of these super rare beauties, make sure to sleeve it and keep it safe. It looks like they will be selling for between $100-300 each, depending on which one.
ONE VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: One of the big rules of the store at D20 is treating each other honestly and fairly. I’m super proud of how people treat each other here, so I just want to remind people of something that will have almost everybody shaking their head in agreement: We treat trading unfairly with someone as the same as stealing. If you know that someone has a card that is worth a lot, trade with them the way that you would want to be traded with. Honesty is doing the right thing when you probably won’t get caught and it is just you who make sure you are a stand-up guy. So (and this is to our jr. members especially), remember that if you aren’t sure, you never have to make a trade. And if we find out that there have been serious “take advantage of” type trades, it is not ok.
Open at midnight Thursday Oct 1st to pick up booster boxes and fat packs.
Battle For Zendikar Prerelease @ D20 Games
One of the all time great sets, Zendikar is back with a (for) vengeance. The invading Eldrazi…the crew of supersized god-like bad guys that gave us such cards as the all-time king of “Oh…you didn’t just cast….”, Emerkul! And this is a land known for, well, Lands. Yep, the Zendikar lands are back! (“Why yes, I did first pick a foil basic land from this pack”) Not only are these full-art beauties are a must for any well dressed deck, but the return of the Landfall mechanic means that just playing a land can do anything from buffing up one of your guys to having another pop out an extra 5/5 creature!
