Announcing the Ixalan Pre-Release!

Prepare to drop anchor, saddle up your dinosaur, and charge off into the wild jungles of Ixalan in search Orazca, the lost city of gold! Along the way you’ll battle fearsome vampires, face-off with the gorgon planeswalker turned pirate Vraska, and collect a whole new set of awesome Magic cards in time for the Battle for Zendikar and Shadows Over Innistrad blocks to rotate out of Standard.

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

Our pre-release play mat series continues with Ixalan! You can pre-order a custom art play mat along with your event registration online at a discounted price, but get in quick because limited stock is available.
