The new set of Magic: The Gathering Journey Into Nyx will soon be released. It is the final set in this year’s “Theros” block. The prerelease tournament will be from April 25-26 at participating stores.
Players attending the event will have the first chance to play with and own the new cards, which focuses mainly on powerful “Enchantment” type cards and features a strong Greek and Roman theme.
Rare “God” type monsters will be available, as they have been throughout the Theros block, as well as new “Planeswalker”cards such as “Ajani, Mentor of Heros”.
In addition to being able to collect and play with the new cards early, promotional cards will be available for those who enter into the tournament as well. Some of these cards will feature alternate artwork, and there is a special “Hero” card that can only be obtained at the event through the “Hero’s Quest” reward program.
Players and collectors entering should expect heated competition from seasoned players who have already viewed most of the cards on the official website, which has spoiled the set for those interested. On the other hand, the also have the opportunity to trade some cards at premium prices while they are still hot and in demand.
