Throne of Eldraine
Throne of Eldraine
Prince Charming vs. the Gingerbread man? Yep! In this new set, you get to adventure in Fairytale land, till the quest is complete or your golden goose gets cooked. (Yeah, I went there…I have in will continue to assert my store owner given rights to tell really bad dad puns at will.)
The set looks super fun, with enough different fairytale mythologies to give Shrek a run for it’s (gingerbread cookies.) The new mechanics include
- Adventure, which is a creature that has an option of casting the adventure(an instant or sorcery, and then later casting the creature part from exile.
- Adamant: where casting something with lots of a particular color land isn’t required, but sure gives some nice bonuses.
- Food: This created artifact always has the ability to pay 2 and gain 3 life, but can also be used to feed the effects of other cards in the set.
Note: This will be the second time we are adding prerelease events to the Firday as well. The first one is an event for kids 14 and younger starting at 3 pm (It’s ok to be a little later…they have between 3-4 to build their decks). And we are doing an adult (14 and older, at 7:30). Even though we are running more events, we have the same limit on the number of prerelease kits. This way, there is more space for the players over the whole weekend. (So sign up in advance as much as you can. As usual, online sales end an hour before the events start.)
The new events.
A Friday 3pm Jr. sealed that is aimed at kids 16 and younger. (We are doing the standard Date Night Magic rules that adults can play, but any prize they would win playing against kids goes to the kids)
And a 7:30 pm Grown Up (17+) only event that will be a little more expensive, but have double prizes.
Both of these events will be 3 rounds, win a round, win a pack (two in the case of the adult event).
