Announcing the Rivals of Ixalan Pre-Release at The Games Capital!

The golden city of Orazca has been found, and now the rival factions of Ixalan battle for control of the legendary artifact; The Immortal Sun. Will you plunder the city alongside the Brazen Coalition, or reclaim it for the Sun Empire? Should the Immortal Sun be returned to the Legion of Dusk, or is it best kept guarded by the River Heralds? Pre-release weekend is your chance to decide.

Entry to each of our Pre-Release events will be $40 and each player who enters will receive one Rivals of Ixalan Pre-Release pack which includes four Rivals of Ixalan, two Ixalan boosters, and one promotional card with which to build a 40-card deck, as well as a spin down life counter.
