Magic: the Gathering - COMMANDER 2014

At least two things to expect from the Commander product due out in November -
• A cycle of Planeswalker Commanders: five monocolored planeswalkers that can be used as a commander.
• A cycle of Historical Legendaries: five legendary creatures from Magic’s past that had no a card before.

From the mothersite :

Each Commander Box includes a 100-card preconstructed deck and three oversized, foil legendary Commander cards. The decks are filled with cards from throughout the history of Magic and also include 15 new Magic cards in every deck!

The five new Commander decks each contain two brand new mono-color legendary creatures and 13 other never-before-printed cards. There are 51 unique new cards spread across the five decks (some cards appear in multiple decks). These new cards will not only bring excitement to the Commander format but are also legal for use in Vintage and Legacy tournaments!

Magic: the Gathering - Duel Decks’ Anthology

Announced during the MTG Panel at SDCC 2014 - This new product which is to be expected to be released on or about December 12, 2014.  Duel Decks’ Anthology is to be a compilation set that combines the first four Duel Decks all provided with the new card frames. Now the big question is on many gamer’s minds is exactly what is meant by ‘combined’.  To many, this means all eight 60-card theme decks (or 480 cards) from each of the Duel Decks in one product :
• Elves vs. Goblins (2007)
• Jace vs. Chandra (2008)
• Divine vs. Demonic (2009)
• Garruk vs. Liliana (2009)

Amazing how creative we are when waiting for our next MTG game.

behindblueeyes15 said: I just got into Magic The Gathering and I love it. But I don't have any stores near me that held Friday Night Magic. Do you know any other way to find other MTG players to play with?

Hey there !  If there’s no joy finding one near you (at http://locator.wizards.com ) you can always see if the local college has a group going, or check http://www.meetup.com .  Alternatively, playing MTG on Skype is also a thingy.
