Command the Night

Innistrad is a plane of menace and dread where every creature hides a darker aspect. Here, hedonistic vampires stalk the shadows to quench their thirst, and the full moon can transform a simple villager into a savage werewolf. Best to huddle inside, Planeswalker, lest the horrors of this world rend you limb from limb.

Dark Ascension will be available in the Magic Online store on February 20. The Dark Ascension prerelease will feature two separate parts: Swiss Sealed Flights and 8-Player Swiss Draft Queues. See below for more information.
