Interesting news is coming from social media today, April 25, regarding the "Journey Into Nyx" prereleases already going on around the world. At one local game store, a person has supposedly opened a "pack from the gods," as someone described.

The scenario in question has several photos. One of them depicts the person holding the wrapper of an opened pack of "Journey Into Nyx" in one hand and all 15 Gods in the other hand. Another photo shows the face of the actual player just holding all 15 Gods fanned out in both hands.

Once again, the shop where the pack was opened was located in the Philippines, Ongkeco's Hobby Shop. If you remember during the "Born of the Gods" prerelease, the "Magister of Worth" was also opened in a shop located in the Philippines. That situation was questioned as well, but turned out to be true.

From previous events, this isn't the first time Wizards of the Coast has done something out of the ordinary as a way of marketing the game. Other than the 15 cards, nothing else has been reported; no phone number, no code, nothing.

What do you think is going on here? Have these photos been altered in some way? Or is this real?

Signs, so far, point to this being real as unrealistic as things may look and sound. Let us know what you think in the comments below.

UPDATE #1: These packs have been confirmed as they have been spotted by Mike Cannon. He is a judge and writer for gatheringmagic.com.

UPDATE #2: More information is coming in through Twitter that you can also get God packs through the Intro Decks as well. It seems this is not just a prerelease thing. Now the question is what the frequency of these packs are in cases? Could we see them once per case? Maybe once per every six cases?
