Magic Online Innistrad Prerelease Events

Horror Lurks Within

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.

Innistrad will be available in the Magic Online store on October 17. The Innistrad prerelease will feature three separate parts: Swiss Sealed Flights, 8-Player Swiss Draft Queues, and Casual Draft Queues. See below for more information.
