A Special Release to Draft in Style with Your Favorite Planeswalkers

Some of the most exciting Draft stories start off with a pack one, pick one planeswalker – so what if there was a way to create that experience for the entire table? Guilds of Ravnica: Mythic Edition does just that by providing a draft-sized package of 24 boosters of which eight will include a randomized, masterpiece-edition planeswalker chosen specifically for this set. That’s right – Masterpiece Edition, meaning the artwork for these cards will be all-new and full-art.

The eight planeswalkers that can be found in these special boosters are:

  • Elspeth, Knight-Errant
  • Teferi, Hero of Dominaria
  • Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas
  • Liliana, the Last Hope
  • Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast
  • Ral, Izzet Viceroy
  • Vraska, Golgari Queen
  • Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker

Guilds of Ravnica: Mythic Edition goes on sale with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $ 249.99 (approx. 214,18 €) on 3 October 2018.

Breaking Down the Masterpieces of Guilds of Ravnica: Mythic Edition

Elspeth, Knight-Errant is one of the most powerful planeswalkers in white that has ever been printed. Her new art depicts her return from Theros’ Underworld, but she’s not plane-specific when it comes to her strength. Her ability to pump out tokens and power them up makes her a deadly threat in any white deck.

Teferi, Hero of Dominaria lives up to his name as being the best card to come out of Dominaria. Making waves in both Standard and Modern, Teferi is a card that you’d want in your control decks regardless of the format. His plus ability makes Teferi a five-mana planeswalker that costs three mana, and his penchant for dealing with problematic permanents via his minus ability is exactly what control decks need.

Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas is a decisive finisher in artifact-heavy decks, seeing play in decks from Commander all the way to Legacy. Although known to be a schemer in the Multiverse stories, this iteration of Tezzeret doesn't waste any time and immediately starts to impact the board by turning artifacts into 5/5 creatures.

It’s impossible to talk about game-changing, three-mana planeswalkers without mentioning the almighty Liliana, the Last Hope. Her ability to protect herself with her plus ability and generate card advantage with her minus ability means that once she hits the battlefield, she’s a force to be reckoned with.

Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast is another planeswalker with artifact synergy. His Construct tokens provide fodder for his minus ability, and his ultimate lets him make three copies of the best artifact that’s been played – whether it’s on the battlefield or in the graveyard!

Being the new kid on the block, Ral, Izzet Viceroy has the most to prove. Will he reach the heights that other planeswalkers on this list have reached? Keep an eye out for Ral, not only in the tournament scene, but also in the upcoming Magic stories as one of Nicol Bolas’ henchmen.

The villain of the Multiverse, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, rounds off the set as one of the most iconic Grixis cards to see print. His cost is steep, but his power is immense. And there is nothing like spending eight mana to slam Nicol Bolas into play, taking over the game.
