The Battle Rages On!

The Magic: The Gathering game expands every year, introducing new worlds filled with deadly perils, ancient adversaries, and fantastic new adventures. At its center is the Magic core set, the game in its purest form: evocative spells, menacing creatures, and infinite possibilities. But even at its core, the experience is ever-changing. The Magic 2012 core set boldly continues this tradition.

Magic 2012 will be available in the Magic Online store on August 1. The Magic 2012 prerelease will feature three separate parts: Swiss Sealed Flights, 8-Player Swiss Draft Queues, and Casual Drafts. See below for more information.
