Today Jan. 6, 2014 Wizards of the Coast announced on DailyMtg.com this year's upcoming annual core "Magic: The Gathering" set, along with several important facts and credits. The "Magic 2015 Core Set" will feature 269 cards, which is 20 more than last year's.
Noticeably absent from the announcement are event decks and booster battle packs, with a newly listed product: The Clash Pack. Detailed information about the Clash Pack wasn't listed at this time, however Wizards of the Coast "will be announcing more about the new Clash Pack soon!"
In addition, there was also some stunning new artwork showing Garruk with the tagline "Hunt bigger game." With Garruk, Caller of Beasts new to last year's "Magic 2014 Core Set" is seems odd to have yet another new version of him right away. While it may not be a brand new card, there's no doubt the indication is he'll have a heavy impact on the story.
The "M15" prerelease events will occur on July 12-13, 2014 and the set will be released on July 18, 2014. "M15" will hit "Magic Online" July 28, 2014 (with the prerelease July 25-27, 2014). The official Twitter hashtag is #MTGM15.
The initial concept and game design was led by Aaron Forsythe, with Max McCall, Shawn Main, Mike Gills, and Jenna Helland on the team. Final Game Design and Development was led by Billy Moreno, with Shawn Main, Adam Lee, Tom LaPille, and Sam Stoddard on the team.
"Magic 2015" will be printed in 11 languages: English, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
It'll be sold in Booster Packs, Intro Packs*, Clash Packs*, and Fat Packs* (*not in all languages).
