The newest set for Magic: The Gathering, Dark Ascension, officially releases this Friday, February 3, and Brookhurst Hobbies will be hosting a booster draft starting at 6:00 p.m. to celebrate!
First of all, I'd like to extend a big thank-you to everyone who came out to our Pre-Release tournaments on Saturday and Sunday. With over 90 players split between two days, this was the biggest pre-release event I've had the privilege to host! Congratulations to our winners, and especially to Saturday's Humans and Sundays Zombies - if you were here, you know what I'm talking about, and if you weren't, then you'll have to make sure to come to our next event so that you don't miss out on the fun!
Dark Ascension continues and builds upon the story and mechanics presented in Innistrad, one of the most popular sets for Magic ever created! Dark Ascension introduces the Undying and Fateful Hour abilities to returning favorites Flashback, Morbid, and Dual-Faced Cards. The set includes instant-hit cards like Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, and Huntsmaster of the Fells. If you've never played Magic but you're interested to see what it's all about, or if you used to play and you're looking for the right time to get back in, now's the time!
