In the world of Magic the Gathering, Zendikar is a dangerous plane of lethal risks where brave adventurers delve into ancient ruins in search of priceless rewards. Zendikar Rising is the next MtG set to debut, and releases on September 25th. Although its storyline features no Eldrazi, we will see the ruin they have caused. From the perspective of its inhabitants, it is a hostile place that seems to be actively trying to kill the creatures that have the audacity to live there. The danger is unrelenting: precarious terrain, cunning predators, natural disasters on a massive scale, and the Roil — the unpredictable ripples of change that wash through the land — all present a constant challenge to survival.
Here are some of the products that Wizards of the Coast has announced for this set, and that are available to pre-order now:
Zendikar Rising Draft Booster Packs: The booster packs we all know and love! Draft Boosters are designed for use in Limited formats like Booster Draft and Sealed Deck. These booster packs have 15 cards from Zendikar Rising, are optimized for the draft format, and come in displays of 36 packs.
Zendikar Rising Set Booster Packs: WotC has created a brand new booster pack type for Zendikar Rising called the Set booster. Set boosters are designed for fans who just like the thrill of opening booster packs to see what they can get. The Set booster display boxes will come with 30 packs each. Each of these unique booster packs contain the following:
- 1x Zendikar Rising art card
- 1x Zendikar Rising full-art basic land
- 6x Zendikar Rising thematically connected commons and uncommons
