Magic: The Gathering’s next major crossover series – The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth – got a splash, preview of an hour on Tuesday highlighted by the unveiling of the truly unique One Ring card. Check it out below:
That’s right, like the One Ring itself, there’s only one of these cards, a serialized, foil-printed, 1-to-1 collectible printed in the Black Speech of Sauron. This precious card is found by an (un?)lucky fan who buys a Collector Booster pack for The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth when the series launches later this summer.
Should the One Ring slip from your hands, you might find Collector Booster versions of the Sol Ring, themed around the Rings of Power created for the Elves, Dwarves, and Humans of Middle-earth. Wizards of the Coast has announced that 300 serialized double rainbow foil Elven Sol Ring cards will be printed, along with 700 Dwarven Sol Rings and 900 Human Sol Rings. The non-foil versions of the Sol Ring cards are printed in an edition of 19,000.
The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth will feature dozens more images of fan favorite characters, places and scenes from the fantasy trilogy. These cards are legal in Modern and Commander (and other Eternal formats) and playable in Draft and Sealed Deck formats.
Here are the rest of them The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth cards revealed this week.
