See also

With all the excitement over upcoming expansions and summer supplemental products, it's easy to forget about certain all-reprint products, such as From the Vault. Luckily, today, we now have an announcement on the mothership for the most badass, pull-no-punches one yet, the Steven Seagal film of Magic products subtitled Annihilation. Taglined with "Beyond Destruction Looms Annihilation," it only gets nuttier from there:

Harness the savage power of fifteen of the most brutal Magic cards ever unleashed. These limited-edition, black-bordered superweapons are legal in many tournament formats. Sweep the battlefield clean with this powerful arsenal and blast the opposition into oblivion.

Contents and Details

15 Premium foil cards, including 6 with new art.
An exclusive Spindown™ life counter.
A collector's guide.
Each card has been printed using a foil process unique to the From the Vault series.
From the Vault: Annihilation will be available world-wide in English only, and will have an extremely limited print run.
All cards are black bordered and tournament legal. This means that these cards are legal for use in any tournaments where the original printings are still legal.

Product Concept and Development: Gavin Verhey and Jeremy Jarvis
Release Date: August 22, 2014
Magic Online Release Date: August 22, 2014

The expansion symbol, by the way, is a freaking Chicxulub-size meteor impact (Dinosaurs confirmed for Huey? Eh, not really), and the preview art a Raymond Swanland piece of ravens scattering from a flaming tornado. This may be our chance for a Damnation reprint, of course, but don't count out Bonfire of the Damned
