Everything Old is New Again
by Brian Rogers

Every couple of years, Wizards of the Coast likes to shake up the Magic: The Gathering® world and bring some of our favorite cards back for a second look. When the new core set comes out, each of us finds something that brings back memories of when we first started playing the Magic card game. When Eighth Edition came out, I found some of the cards that I used to play when I was new to the game, like Rukh Egg, Fungusaur, and one of my all time favorites, Royal Assassin. Seeing this card made me think of sitting around my friend’s kitchen table in high school and using an Icy Manipulator to tap the big monsters my friends would play and then stabbing them in the back with the Assassin’s dagger. On July 29, you have a chance to find some of your favorite cards from the past in a booster pack again. MORE

The first 5 players that bring in a new player to a 9th Edition Release Tournament will receive one deck box. The new players will be awarded a deck box too. (While supplies last…)

Conventional Magic - The Best 4 Days of Magic
by John H Klauk

As I mentioned in my last Magic article, I am a HUGE fan of Magic: The Gathering® Online. With the announcement of Mirage coming out for Magic Online, I am more excited than the most excited thing you can imagine that is currently filled with excitement! Phasing….flanking……it’s all coming back to me now……

But, until the day I get to poison my way to victory again (COBRA!!!) I will be psyched to play my older cards in the upcoming Legacy and Vintage events at Gen Con (or the Convention league or the Grand Melee or so much more).

So how do you get to play in these fine, fine events? MORE
