Gatecrash Intro Packs (and Fat Pack)

Posted in Arcana on January 3, 2013

Yesterday, we saw the Gatecrash Prerelease cards. And some other cards, but the Prerelease cards are the ones that have something to do with what we're looking at today: the Gatecrash Intro Packs! The rare cards are the same ones as the Prerelease cards, although they have different art.

Each of the five Gatecrash Intro Packs comes with a ready-to-play sixty-card deck featuring a foil premium rare card (it's the one you can see in the pictures!), two sealed fifteen-card booster packs, a strategy insert, and a Magic "learn to play" guide.

Orzhov Oppression

The Orzhov Syndicate hides its racketeering enterprises under a veneer of piety. Lead the corrupt hierarchy to victory with the "Orzhov Oppression" deck. Clamp down on your opponents and bleed them dry, drop by inevitable drop.

Dimir Dementia

The secretive mind-mages of House Dimir spill the secrets of their enemies—and exploit them for their own advantage. Use the "Dimir Dementia" deck to gain access to the guarded depths of your opponent’s library and reap the rewards.

Gruul Goliaths

The brutish outsiders of the Gruul Clans are sick of being kicked around. It’s time to taste sweet revenge. You’ll build up a base of speedy mana, then knock the smirk off your opponent’s face with the "Gruul Goliaths" deck’s stream of hulking monsters.

Boros Battalion

The Boros Legion fights as one fierce army, joined together under a banner of righteousness. Take command of the "Boros Battalion" deck to construct an ever-growing army and march it right over your enemy’s defenses.

Simic Synthesis

The Simic Combine uses bio-magic to hybridize strange creatures. Advance the state of the art with the "Simic Synthesis" deck, evolving larger and weirder life forms and using their adaptations to evolve yourself a victory.

And as long as we're here, how about the Gatecrash Fat Pack? It looks like this!

The Gatecrash Fat Pack contains all the goodies you want in a Fat Pack:

  • Player’s Guide with complete visual encyclopedia
  • Gatecrash card box
  • Nine (NINE!) Gatecrash booster packs
  • Eighty-card basic land pack
  • Special edition Spindown life counter
  • Two deck boxes
