Return to Ravnica Set Launches
Magic: The Gathering Players Return to Most Popular Plane in the Multiverse
October 5, 2012 - RENTON, WA - Wizards of the Coast today announced the launch of the Return to Ravnica set, which kicks off the highly anticipated Return to Ravnica block. This launch brings Magic: The Gathering fans back to the most revered plane in the Multiverse – Ravnica, a plane covered entirely by city and inhabited by 10 guilds all vying for control. Five of the ten guilds – Azorius, Golgari, Izzet, Rakdos and Selesnya – are featured in the Return to Ravnica set.
The ten guilds are the foundation of power in Ravnica, each with its own identity and civic function. By visiting GuildsOfRavnica.com, players can learn more about the 10 guilds and can take a quiz that will help them select a guild to affiliate with. In choosing an affiliation, players can take part in the battle of control for Ravnica at Wizards Play Network locations.
Fans of Magic: The Gathering on Facebook can also join in the action with the Artfight game app, an interactive experience that allows players to earn points for their guild in the quest to control Ravnica. Through the Planeswalker Points system, players are also able to earn Ravnica-themed badges and achievements to further express their guild affiliation.
Featuring 274 black-bordered cards, including randomly inserted premium versions of all cards in the set, The Return to Ravnica Core Set is available in booster packs, intro packs, and fat packs.
