Release Date: Available now

Magic: The Gathering (Magic) was first introduced to the market by Wizards of the Coast back in 1993. The game is designed for two or more players each using a deck of printed cards - although in more modern times the game has added the option of virtual cards which can be played over the Internet. The 62nd Magic expansion set is the Theros series, a large expansion which will be followed by Born of the Gods and Journey into Nyx...

The Theros - Event Deck allows you to jump into tournament play with a powerful deck that will give you a fighting chance. This standard-legal Event Deck contains 60 cards from a variety of sets, 10 rares and a 15-card sideboard. It also comes complete with a Spindown life counter as well as a strategy guide with tips for how to play the modified deck.

Event decks are designed for players that are eager to get into Standard tournament play but don't quite have the confidence to build their own deck. Event Decks allow gamers to me competitive, and the sideboard and strategy guide also provide advanced advice on how to keep the deck up to speed with their opponents.

This is another well presented set and one that any self respecting Magic fan will snap up immediately.

4 Azorius Guildgate

5 Island
