You are invited to the most prestigious Vampire Wedding!

Crimson Vow continues the new Innistrad storyline begun in Innistrad: Midnight Hunt. As humanity turned to the hope of rituals and a Harvesttide festival to save them from the Eternal Night in Midnight Hunt, those that stalk from shadows aren’t just the mindless zombies and frenetic werewolves, but also the eternally undead with calculating, grand designs of their own. This set features the biggest vampire wedding in Innistrad history, a bonding between the Markov and Voldaren bloodlines. Olivia Voldaren is the bride, and aims to form a pact with the Markovs to take control over Innistrad. “The bride pledges her heart to the groom and he, his undying affection to her. Blood and famine, violence and peace—In eternal life and through moment’s struggle, the two shall rule this land until its people are no more. The Heron’s blood make it so.”

Live the role of a Disney villain and unmask the traitors among you!

Imagine a dark and desolate realm, filled only with chaos and misfortune, where only the truly evil and most powerful villains can survive and thrive. In a world where everyone is wicked, is there anyone you can really trust?

In Gathering of the Wicked, based on Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow, you play as a Disney villain such as Maleficent, Hades, or Captain Hook who is gathering in a dark realm with various henchmen. There, two teams fight for control, alternating between day and night phases. Each night, the villains wake up one by one and use their unique abilities to chase their objectives. Each day, the gathering debates and tries to unmask the traitors amongst them, but since no one knows which team other players are on, trusting each other will be tricky, and bluffing will be their best route to dominance within their new surroundings.

While each role is known by the other players, every character also has a “secret alignment” that determines their objective – making it even trickier to know who to trust!

Will you be a member of Team Mayhem, or cause chaos as a member of Team Mischief?

Legendary Duelists: Synchro Storm powers up three strategies used by Duelists that specialize in WIND monsters!

First, appearing in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, Yugo’s “Speedroid” monsters excel at quick, consecutive Synchro Summons! Start off with Summoning his signature monster, Clear Wing Synchro Dragon, then use the rest of your Speedroids to upgrade it into more advanced forms like Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon or even a brand-new WIND Synchro Dragon!

Originally released as videogame promotional cards, Sherry LeBlanc’s strategy is resurrected and revolutionized in Legendary Duelists: Synchro Storm! Hailing from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s, Sherry’s cards specialize in fielding a single powerful WIND Synchro Monster. Her ace monster from the anime, Chevalier de Fleur, is a Level 8 WIND Synchro Monster that prevents your opponent from blocking your wind of victory by negating the opponent’s Spell or Trap cards during your turn.

Finally, Lulu’s Lyrilusc strategy from Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V flies back in with the new support cards! This strategy stacks up Level 1 Winged Beasts to Xyz Summon Rank 1 Xyz Monsters with as many Xyz Materials as possible. You can even combine them with “Tri-Brigade” cards from Phantom Rage, Blazing Vortex, and Lightning Overdrive to create a cool hybrid strategy!

Topping it all off, Legendary Duelists: Synchro Storm will include a hard-to-find Ghost Rare version of one of its coolest cards!
