gatecrashMagic: the Gathering’s Gatecrash sets will be coming out February 1st, and features 249 cards. The set introduces the last 5 guilds of Ravnica: Orzhov, Dimir, Gruul, Boros, and Simic.

The core set is available in booters, intro packs, and fat packs. Prerelease events are taking place from January 26th – January 27th.

Wizards of the Coast sent me over the Simic Synthesis intro pack, a green/blue deck that features evolving creatures that get more powerful as more powerful creatures enter the battlefield. So far I’m impressed with the cards I’ve seen, and this feels like a great follow up to Return to Ravnica.
