New Format Comes To Magic--Planechase

Today on the Magic Arcana, Wizards of the Coast announced a new product for Magic: The Gathering.  Planechase is a whole new way to experience your favorite game.  This multiplayer, casual format simulates planeswalking by adding a new card to the game.  Through this brand new card type, players can battle each other across a variety of diverse worlds, each with its own unique effect on the game.


  • There will be four Planechase Game Packs released on September 4th, 2009: Elemental Thunder, Metallic Dreams, Strike Force, and Zombie Empire.
  • Each game pack will contain 10 all-new plane cards, a ready-to-play 60-card deck, a six-sided planar die and a Planechase strategy insert with multiplayer rules.
  • Each of the 60-card decks will include 8 rares, and will be composed of cards from throughout Magic's history - including a preview card from Zendikar.
  • The 10 oversized plane cards comprise a planar deck. They feature all-new artwork depicting some of the more exotic realms of the Magic multiverse.
  • Each of the cards in the 60-card decks will be black-bordered and tournament legal. This means that these cards are legal for use in any tournaments where the original printings are still legal.
  • Planechase release events will be held September 4-6, 2009. Watch magicthegathering.com this summer for details.
  • Initial Concept and Game Design: Brian Tinsman (lead), Aaron Forsythe, Peter Knudson, and Kenneth Nagle
  • Final Game and Deck Development: Mike Turian (lead), Dave Guskin, Peter Knudson, Scott Larabee, and Mark Purvis, with contributions from Mark L. Gottlieb
  • MSRP: $19.99
