Game Preorders for April 2021

Hi Everyone!

April is upon us and so are another round of game preorders available in-store and online at The Comic Shop!

Strixhaven: School of Mages is the latest regular expansion for Magic: the Gathering containing 275 new cards to add to your collection! Strixhaven is billed as the most prestigious magic school in the multiverse and includes five different colleges you can explore to see what best fits your play style.

Each school is themed around an enemy color pair and was founded by a different Elder Dragon!

Continuing a theme from the previous set of reprinting awesome cards, Strixhaven includes a subset of 63 instants and sorceries found in the eponymous school’s Mystical Archive! These cards are presented in a unique frame and include a number of favorites from the past.

How about a couple of examples!

Lightning Bolt

The regular versions of these cards look fantastic, but only in Collector Boosters will you find these Japanese versions that I think look even better!

Most Mystical Archive cards will unfortunately not be standard legal, but they will make your eternal and commander decks look fantastic! (Of course now I have to get eight more copies of Lightning Bolt for my collection…)

Additionally! Any purchase of a box or six pre-release packs of Strixhaven: School of Mages will include a foil extended-art Dragonsguard Elite while supplies last!

With the continued prohibition on in-store play, pre-release will be once again available over the web at the store’s Discord channel! Come hang out with us and talk about the new and exciting cards that we get to play with!

Registration for the event is available here!

Strixhaven: School of Mages releases April 23rd, 2021.

It’s time for the 2021 Challenger Decks for Magic: the Gathering!

Challenger decks are a great entry point into standard Magic play featuring pre-built decks that are proven in the format.

Featuring four popular archetypes, these decks are suitable to be played out of the box and feature multiple copies of popular cards that allow the deck to function smoothly!

2021 Challenger Decks release April 2nd, 2021!
