October 14, 1997: Tempest Hits
Twelve years ago, Gerrard Capashen and the crew of the Weatherlight kicked off the Rath Cycle, picking up where Weatherlight left off. This set introduced Magic players to Slivers, Cursed Scroll, Living Death, and Tradewind Rider. And also Phyrexian Grimoire, Phyrexian Hulk, and Phyrexian Splicer, which is all the excuse we need to point out that two days ago, we announced Duel Decks: Phyrexia vs. The Coalition on the anniversary of Tempest's release!
