Set in the war-torn land of Zendikar, the new expansion features two new Planeswalkers.  The merfolk Planeswalker Kiora is the first two-color Planeswalker for the board game, combining blue and green armies and spells in her quest to protect her world from destruction.  Opposed to her is the demon Ob Nixilis, trapped long ago in Zendikar and desperate to escape.  The demon has only recently regained his powers, and seeks to destroy his former prison.

The Battle for Zendikar expansion is MSRP $19.99.

The Magic: The Gathering - Arena of the Planeswalkers base game released earlier this summer (see “First ‘MTG:  Arena of the Planeswalkers’ Copies Street July 1”).
