The Helvault by Room 8 Studios
Hello again everyone, I am excited to share with you today our first large expansion, Helvault Unsealed! This set is our horrifically terrifying take on the plane of Innistrad … and includes new cards themed around the Helvault Spectacle. Because Magic Spellslingers is set on the plane of Kylem, the residents there put on elaborate celebrations of notable events that have taken place throughout the multiverse; in this case, the unsealing of the Helvault. Join them to uncover the spooky, scary, and sometimes silly creatures, spells, and artifacts that make their home on Innistrad. You will not only find the Helvault itself, but also important characters such as Avacyn, Griselbrand, and Thalia. The set will release in early November, so read on for more details!
A Big Expansion
This set includes 160 new cards, making it over 3 times the size of D&D: Icons! We have an official term for expansions this size: big. There will be a cavalcade of new cards, combos, and other content for you to explore. It also includes the first ever flip cards, the first ever 20-cost card, and the first alternate win condition.
Similar to the previous expansion, these cards will be released into the same booster pack pool as all previously released cards.
Werewolves and Vampires, oh my
This set includes many werewolves, vampires, angels, and demons. But werewolves will have their own unique mechanic, called moonlight, and vampires will get tribal support for the first time to coincide with the release of a new Spellslinger, the vampire lord Sorin.
The set also introduces a new miracle mechanic that will cut across all 5 colors. Miracles will introduce some fun variance to the game. Put enough miracle cards in your deck, and your prayers are sure to be answered!
Hey what's this? A spoiler already? It IS a miracle!
I wonder what a sealed creature is? Hmm? Well, in the meantime, keep on slinging!
