WOTC announces new Modern format Event Deck for 'Magic: The Gathering'

See also

Today, January 9th, Wizards of The Coast made an announcement on their website regarding a brand new Event Deck for "Magic: The Gathering." While they have announced Event Decks in the past, this one has already stirred up the social media buzz because it has been made for the Modern format instead of the usual Standard format.

This news is more substantial due to the fact that, financially, the Modern format is known to be a more higher costing format with cards such as the Fetch lands, Tarmogoyf, and "Bob" being in the format. Wizards was not specific in what can be expected in the deck, but had this to say on its site,

"Get started with the deep-strategy Modern format in style! Draw on rare, high-powered Magic cards from past sets with this tightly constructed 60-card deck. Also includes a 15-card sideboard, strategy guide, Spindown life counter, 80 exclusive card sleeves, 5 double-sided tokens, and a deck box."

They also said that they meant for the deck to be "in-line with the Event Decks [they] have released for specific sets except this is not specific..."

So what could this mean for the Event Deck? As of right now, anything. Previous Standard Event Decks have proven to have one or two, at the time, format staples such as shock lands and Thragtusk.

The Event Deck has a current MSRP of $74.99 and the planned release is scheduled for May 2014.

Previous Event Decks have been priced between $19.99 and $24.99. At this price point, something tells us that there may be something good in there, but we'll never know until the list in finally spoiled or when the Event Deck is released.
