Well, that’s pretty much all of Return to Ravnica spoiled

So while I was at work, MTGSalvation had a field day with spoilers. More specifically, it looks like someone got a box or two early and photographed the whole thing. The end result is only 10 cards remain unknown.

A new week means new Return to Ravnica spoilers!

I hope everyone had a good weekend, I didn’t (food poisoning is exactly awesome). But this weekend has had a whole mess of spoilers that I missed out on. So now I will play catch up.

From the Mothership:

First up is nerimon, who ate a Magic card with tea. Also, he has a Troy & Abed in the Morning mug so I’m surprisingly okay with it. From MTV comes the newest Rakdos Charm.

Magic: the Gathering Duel Decks Review: Izzet vs. Golgari

I love the Duel Decks in Magic. It only took Wizards five years to really get into the swing of things. With the new schedule of the fall decks previewing the upcoming big set and the spring ones revisiting planeswalkers from the world before, it’s a great system. But this set is special because it returns us to Ravnica before we, uh, return to Ravnica.

Two Guilds Clash beneath the Streets of Ravnica

The Izzet League, under the ingenious mind of its guildmaster, the dragon Niv-Mizzet, has dabbled, delved, and decoded many mysteries in its insatiable thirst for knowledge. Now the dracomagus seeks to plumb the depths of Ravnica’s undercity. But the Golgari don’t welcome interlopers in their dank, moldy realm.

Under the command of the elvish lich lord Jarad, the Golgari have dwelled in darkness long enough. The Swarm grows restless and its rot farms need fresh corpses. Jarad believes the time is right to teach Niv-Mizzet’s magewrights a lesson: that there is no place for Izzet research in the vicious cycle of life and death.

Suggested ages: 13 and up
Number of players: 2
Playing time: 30 minutes
Contents: 2 decks of 60 cards, two deck boxes, two inserts, two tokens
Retail price: $19.99 at retailers everywhere
