Wizards of the Coast announced a Premium Deck Series: Slivers yesterday. I think the Slivers idea is pretty cool. Here are the deck specs:
- 60-card premium foil deck, including 5 rare cards and 1 mythic rare
- Exclusive Spindown(tm) life counter
- Foil deck box
- Strategy insert
- Magic “learn to play” guide
Premium Deck Series: Slivers will be available world-wide in English only, and will have a limited print run.
Each card will be a black bordered foil and tournament legal. This means that these cards are legal for use in any tournaments where the original printings are still legal.
Deck Design and Development Team: Ken Nagle and Mike Turian
Release date: November 20, 2009
Some of the inital musting’s I’ve heard about this release is excitment over the foils, yet distain at the limited print run. It does kind of suck that these are so hard to find. I wanted to get the Angles vs Demons duel decks but it was sold out and I’m out of luck.
Slivers are near and dear to many hearts. One of the guys who taught me how to cast my first spell loves the sliver deck (old school slivers mind you, not the timespiral stuff). I don’t know what his thoughts are on this release. I’ll find out when we see the decklist.
Personally I’m hoping the deck will contain one copy of every card. The new slivers will be interesting and I’m really curious as to what the are making mythic in rarity or including.
