Lots of big reveals and news about Eldritch Moon this week Planeswalkers! Wizards has kept us in suspense for months during Shadows Over Innistrad, teasing us with clues over the cause of the madness infecting Innistrad. This week we finally got our answer along with some news about pre-release events. Let’s get started!
All Hail Emrakul:
It has finally happened, the last remaining Eldrazi Titan has finally shown itself and is bent on the destruction of Innistrad. It is the reason for all the corruption during Shadows Over Innistrad. Welcome the biggest card reveal of last week, EMRAKUL COMMANDS YOU TO WITNESS HER GLORY:
EMRAKUL HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE CAST FOR ONLY 7 OR 8 MANA AND CONTROL YOUR OPPONENT’S ENTIRE TURN WHILE PROTECTION FROM INSTANTS GIVES HER STAYING POWER AND SURVIVABILITY. EMRAKUL IS AWESOME. ALL HAIL EMRAKUL.
EMRAKUL DEMANDS YOU WATCH THE NEW TRAILER FOR ELDRITCH MOON:

For everything else
EMRAKUL Eldritch Moon, including news, card reveals, social media responses and of course, Access Magic videos, check out the main EM hub here. Speaking of which, the next Access Magic (and by association, the next big card reveal) video will be taking place on June 27th. This time, Jimmy Wong talks with the artists of the new set and their distinct purple-tinged style. That date will also mark the start of Magic’s preview week on Facebook. Each day they’ll reveal new cards from the set leading up to the pre-release. View the announcement for Access Magic below:
Seeing as Liliana is
GOING TO WORSHIP EMRAKUL going to be a major part of this set’s story, I wouldn’t be surprised if her new Planeswalker card was part of the next reveal. From the trailer, it seems like she will be Innistrad’s last line of defense against THE GLORIOUS EMRAKUL. It also seems that she might just have to work with her ex, Jace, and the rest of the Gatewatch members to survive. Will we finally see a black mana user join the Oath of the Gatewatch? Only time will tell, but for now I feel this poster pretty accurately sums up the story of the set thus far:
Time For Pre-release:
We’re now less than a month away from
EMRAKUL Eldritch Moon, and this week Wizards showed us what special goodies you’ll be getting for attending pre-release events on July 16th and 17th:
As always, the Oogie Games Niagara Falls location will be hosting the event, and encouraging players of all skill levels to come out and play. They’re always great events for meeting fellow magic players, play competitively and be one of the first to play with EMRAKUL or several other Eldritch Moon cards, not to mention the fact that you get to keep whatever you opened. If you’ve never been to a pre-release and want to know more about IT, Wizards has offered a handy little FAQ video below about what to expect:
For even more information, you can give the official site a look. Hope to play with you Planeswalkers for what already looks like an exciting set.
Go Big or Go Home:
Seeing as this weeks reveal has joined the club of highest mana cost creatures, I figured I’d shine some light on more of Magic’s big creatures club. For a list, and description, of Magic’s biggest and best creatures, give this article a look.
Now, building a deck based around such high costs is no joke either. Even more than usual, you need cards that give you exactly what you need when you need it. Luckily, Wizards has a guide for building big for those of you who just can’t help themselves. If you love watching your creatures trample and pulverize your opponent’s, these are the cards and decks for you.
That’s all for this week folks. Thanks for reading, and OPEN UP YOUR MIND, BODY AND SOUL TO EMRAKUL….
