Friday_Night_Magic_3We’re only one week out from the Kaladesh  prerelease Planeswalkers, and the card previews and announcements just keep rolling in. This week, we’ll get you prepared for prerelease day and get you more hyped for the new set (if that’s even possible) with some cool news.

Magic Weekly Update

Friday_Night_Magic_3Ultimate power is within your grasp. The crown and title of King or Queen of Paliano. You and your followers (or minions or pawns depending on what type of ruler you choose to be) have an entire city to win the support of. Will you pull the strings from the shadows, manipulating, bribing, and forcing others to do your dirty work before you sneak in for the victory? Will you win the people’s hearts through honor and justice, punishing the wicked and corrupt and taking their place to build a better city? Will you charm the High Council, using your influence and allies to rise above the weak-willed? Or will you rely on good old fashioned brute force and cleave a bloody path to the throne? These are the questions you’ll have to ask yourself for Conspiracy: Take the Crown, the new multiplayer, free-for-all Magic set dropping August 26. This week I’ll take you through all things Conspiracy  to prepare you for the draft including story, card previews and some of the unique mechanics introduced for this specific style of play.

Your fate is in the hands of others, Planeswalkers. What type of ruler will you be? Continue reading
