The second set of Magic the Gathering’s Theros block is Born of the Gods. On February 1st and 2nd, players got to participate in a prerelease event where they were able to play with the newest cards before they are released on February 7th. Born of the Gods is a smaller with only 165 cards. The set introduces a new planeswalker: the blue/green Kiora, the Crashing Wave. As a continuation of the Theros’ gods, the set also introduces the ten demigods of Theros. The demigods are dual-colored and uses their controller’s devotion to both of the demiogods’ colors. Born of the Gods will feature five of them with allied-color combinations while Journey Into Nyx (the final set of the block) will feature the remaining five.
We want to thank everyone that came out to the store for the prerelease event. A special thanks to the players who came to our Sunday event (Go Seahawks). Hopefully, next year Wizards of the Coast won’t schedule the prerelease during Super Bowl weekend.
