The art of Innistrad is among the best in Magic’s deep history of fantasy art, and it looks like Dark Ascension will carry that theme too. Have you ever seen a picture that perfectly defined “terror” as well as this one? (Well, maybe this one).
A brilliant idea for a Magic set doesn’t always become a great set once all the cards are on the table. Innistrad is built around a gothic horror theme that a lot of players (myself included) are huge fans of. Did Wizards match idea with execution, or do we have another Kamigawa on our hands? [...]
The classic horror of Magic’s Innistrad set is creeping up on us like a full moon crawling up the sky, leering through the clouds and filling us with lunacy and rage. Robot Viking’s Innistrad card does not use Insanity Wolf as the card art, but Insanity Wolf would still be a fan of Full Moon’s [...]
Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) was held recently in Seattle. Fortunately Robot Viking’s roving reporter was there to bring you all the hot scoops. I explored the gigantic expo halls for the greatest loot, fighting off rabid fans and the occasional scary cosplayer all to get the greatest intel on the coming games.

This fall’s Magic set, Innistrad, is far too many months away. Magic’s R&D team is sharing choice bits of information on the set at SDCC this weekend to get us hyped up. It’s working! Here are some updates, including the name of the second set in the block and what tribes will be featured.
Wizards of the Coast recently announced the fall 2011 set, which will be called Innistrad. Why have they announced it already when they haven’t even told us the name of the third Scars of Mirrodin set, which will be coming out in May? And why am I so excited about Innistrad?
