                                                            Calling all Planeswalkers! The Magic the Gathering: Battle For Zendikar pre-release weekend is less than 2 weeks away! If you haven’t booked your place, call up your friendly local games store and book now. Places are sure to run out quickly as the Battle For Zendikar set is full of treasures for long term and new players alike, such as…

                                                            • Full art lands are back! Every booster will contain a single full art land card with the chance for it to be foiled. If you want a set of full art lands then buy a fat pack: these will contain 16 of each land types, in their full art versions.
                                                            • Zendikar Expeditions – Certain Battle For Zendikar packs will include an extremely rare version of one of the most iconic lands in Magic’s history. With 25 to collect and them being near the same rarity level as a foil mythic rare, be sure to have your card sleeves ready!
                                                            • The return of Landfall, the mechanic that rewards you just for playing land, now with new twists!
                                                            • Awaken – the mechanic that allows you to call the land to fight on your side!
                                                            • Rally – last time we visited Zendikar, Gideon Jura had just retreated from the plane to seek out reinforcements to help defeat the Eldrazi. Now, he’s back and he’s brought some friends! The Rally mechanic boosts your team whenever you play an ally creature as the allies of Zendikar unite to face down the growing Eldrazi threat.

                                                            The above is just a small taste of what is new and exciting about the Battle For Zendikar release.

                                                            If you’re new to Magic, or a returning player looking to get back into the game, there are a couple of ways that Wizards recommend:

                                                            Magic: Duels – the free app for Android and iOS, as well as free download for PC, is a fantastic resource to learn the game and the basics of deck building.

                                                            Secondly – and in the eyes of many – the best way to “ignite your spark”, is to get yourself down to your local gaming store and ask someone to teach you. Wizards of the Coast supply all bricks and mortar stores on their Wizards Play Network program  with small 30 card starter decks for this exact purpose!

                                                            If you’d like to find your nearest Wizards Play Network store to attend their pre-release, or just pop in and learn how to play, follow the link below to be taken to the Wizards Play Network store locator.
