Wizards seems to have finally realized that Planechase was a hit – so they are bringing it back for an encore! But with two much needed twists.
First, there aren’t just planes anymore – there are also phenomena! These are one shot effects that seem to mess with everyone. For example, check out Time Distortion!
Taking a page out of the hugely successful Commander line, these decks will also include ALL NEW CARDS! Looking for an obscene red-blue-green Commander? Check out Maelstorm Wanderer (currently in the running for the best reminder text of all time):
There are a total of 21 new Magic cards in the set, spread across the four decks. Each deck has six of the cards (counting by name), although some appear in multiples.
Planechase (2012 Edition) comes out on June 1, 2012. Each of the four decks contains a sixty-cardMagic deck, a ten-card planar deck, and a planar die. The MSRP for each deck is $19.99. This release will be available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish.
