Hi Magic Gamers,

It’s time of the year for Magic: The Gathering Prerelease event.

Amonkhet, Set 1 of 2 in the plane of Amonkhet, prerelease is on April 22nd and 23rd , 2017.    Enjoy your prerelease!

Here is a simple guide for you all who plan to attend AKH Prerelease:


This is Amonkhet prerelease pack:


which contains 6 Amonkhet boosters, a randomized date-stamped premium promo card, a spin down life counter, and others.

Format: minimum 40-card sealed deck, constructed from the 6 boosters in the prerelease pack.


Amonkhet New Mechanics:

EMBALM:  When a creature card with embalm is in your graveyard, you can activate its embalm ability, by paying the embalm cost and exile the card. You do this any time you could cast a sorcery, meaning during your main phase when nothing else is happening. When the ability resolves, you create a token copy of the card.

EXERT:  There are Creatures with exert ability in which you can decide whether to exert a creature when you declare it as an attacker.  If you choose to have it exert, an ability will trigger and grant you some bonus. As a trade-off, the creature won’t untap during your next turn.

AFTERMATH: The return of split cards!  Basically, they are two cards in one.  One half can be casted normally, and the other half can only be casted when the card is in the graveyard.   Once that half resolves, the card is exiled.

Cycling: Card with cycling abilities let you discard a card with a mana cost to draw a card.

-1/-1 COUNTERS:  There are cards that put -1/-1 counter on creatures.


Enjoy Your Amonkhet Prerelease and Good luck!
