Players participating in tournaments at Magci: The Gathering: Innstrad Pre-Release Events, which will be all over the world this weekend on September 24th and 25th, will receive (while supplies last) an exclusive double-faced promo card, “Mayor of Avabruck/Howlpack Alpha, as well as an “Achievement Card.”
Those who attend the pre-release events will have a choice of playing with the newest cards in three different tournament formats. In the “Sealed Deck” format each player receives six Innistrad booster packs to use for building a deck. In the “Booster Draft” event players will receive three Innistrad booster packs to draft with. In the “Two-Headed Giant Sealed” events, each two-player team gets eight Innistrad booster packs to use in building a deck.
The highly anticipated Innistrad set of 264 cards introduces “double faced” cards to Magic: The Gathering, as well as a number of new characters and monsters such as vampires and werewolves (which is where the “Mayor of Avabruck” promo card comes in handy).
