On the Agenda for 2012 Releases -


So we have four releases this summer and then one more remaining this year (that has been revealed thus far)


Planechase 2012
 So with this set, we have four packs, each with a 60 card deck and a 10 card planar deck. Each will sell for about $20, so if you buy all four, you will be spending about $80. It will pretty much follow along the lines of the original Planechase, but instead of 10 over-sized plane cards, there will be 8 over-sized cards and 2 over-sized phenomenon cards (which can randomly cause a permanent game change like rotating turn order)

Planechase 2012 will be released on June 1st. Go ahead and pre-order it from your local store. In my current location, if I pre-order, I get all 4 for $64 instead of $80. So check those stores!


Core 2013 (M13)
There will be multicolored cards for the first time in a core set, but this set is supposed to preview the next block, which is Return to Ravnica. Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker is confirmed to be a card in this set and "Cathedral of War" will be the "buy a box" promo card. There is a chance this set will have shocklands (lands that cause you to lose two life to play them untapped), but if not, they will most like be found in the Return to Ravnica set.

Prerelease events are July 7 and 8, Release date is July 13, Game Days are August 4 and August 5.


From the Vault: Realms
A 15 card set to be released on August 31, and will cost $35. All cards are foil and have not been released since 8th edition. As "Realms" indicates, they will be lands and seven of them should be redesigned with new artwork.


Duel Decks: Izzet vs. Golgari
This release follows with Return to Ravnica featuring two of the guilds: Izzet (Blue/Red) and the Golgari (Black/Green). So you can pretty much guess what colors you will have. My prediction is that we will have "Izzet Boilerworks", "Golgari Rot Farm", "Izzet Signet", and "Golgari Signet" as card within these two decks. "Savra, Queen of the Golgari" and "Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind" will probably also be included.

As with more Duel Decks, price will most likely be $20.

Release will be on September 7th.


Return to Ravnica
The last set of the year, there will be 274 cards focusing on a multicolor theme to match the guilds. Prerelease events will be on September 29 - 30, release date is October 5, and Game Day events will be October 27 - 28.
