‘MAGIC: THE GATHERING – BATTLEBOND’ UNVEILED
Posted May 19th 2018 by CardGameGeek

Preview Box, Pack, and Card Art


Wizards of the Coast has shared artwork for its upcoming Magic: The Gathering – Battlebond booster releasing June 8.

Battlebond is a standalone booster designed for “Two-Headed Giant Limited Play” – both sealed and booster draft formats. A new setting is introduced, as well as new mechanics designed for multiplayer, and new cards will be legal for play in Eternal formats. Sealed play uses SIX Battlebond Booster Packs (rather than the normal eight). Teams will build two decks from the six booster packs. The remaining unused cards will be used as part of a shared sideboard. Draft play uses FOUR Battlebond Booster Packs, with teams picking two cards from a pack before passing the booster to the next team to the left. Pack rotation alternates each round: clockwise for the first pack, counterclockwise for the second, clockwise for the third, and counterclockwise for the fourth.

Each pack has 15 random cards (1 rare/ mythic rare, 3 uncommons, 10 commons, 1 basic land). Each Booster box has 36 packs. Preview Events will be held June 2 – 3, and Launch Party Events will be held June 8 – 10.
