Magic The Gathering Goes Chasing Planes
Magic the Gathering has been around a long time in the history of collectable card games but apparently the folks in the design and devlopment areas of Wizard of the Coast are not content to just keep cranking out new expansions for the mammoth card game. Come September it looks like players will get their hands on a new form of Magic called Planechase.
This new special deck is designed to mix up and make the game a bit more multiplayer chaotic. Apparently along with the four custom Planechase pre-constructed 60-card decks, built around the concept of elemental chaos, the set introduces some new mechanics like the oversized 10-card plane deck and the six-sided planar die. This new card type will display some of the famous planar settings of the game’s long running fiction as well as introduce new play factors that will influence all the players in a game. Details are vague at this point but expect to see and read more about the changes wrought by the Planechase set as the pre-release furvor spins up nearing the September 4, 2009 release for the set.
