Third Eye Guide to Magic the Gathering: Throne of Eldraine
Published September 3rd, 2019
One of the coolest sounding sets of Magic to come down the pipeline in a minute, THRONE OF ELDRAINE is set to follow in the footsteps of recent blockbuster releases like WAR OF THE SPARK and DOMINARIA as it introduces an entirely new world and take to the MtG Multiverse!
Eldraine is an all new entry-point, which is half-inspired by the world of Arthurian legends (Knights of the Round Table, Merlin, Morgana Le Fay, etc.) and half-inspired by the dark and fantastic Grimms’ Fairy Tales we all know and love so well (from Hansel and Gretel to Rapunzel to Snow White and beyond), as well as taking influence from many other classic fairy tales!
What’s new in ELDRAINE?
Aside from the incredible new setting & super cool take on dark fairy-tales and fantasy legends, Eldraine also brings some other neat new additions to the world of MtG!
The most exciting two new arrivals being COLLECTOR’S BOOSTERS & BRAWL DECKS, which delivers a ready-to-play deck for the BRAWL format! There’s four different decks to choose from, and each deck has seven Standard-legal cards otherwise unavailable in the Throne of Eldraine booster packs!
Brawl decks include 60-card deck, seven exclusive Throne of Eldraine cards, one foil legendary creature card, 1 Life Wheel, and 1 strategy insert.
In addition to the Brawl Decks, the Collector’s Boosters may be the coolest thing to hit MtG in some times!
Collector Boosters are premium booster packs geared towards players looking to trick out their decks in a big way.
Each pack features 15 cards from Throne of Eldraine, including one rare or mythic rare with extended art, one foil rare or mythic rare, nine foil commons or uncommon, three special frame cards, one ancillary card (these would be cards not found in a normal booster, think Buy-a-Box), and one foil token.
