Modern PPTQ 11/09/16 – decklists

66 players showed up with the cool summer breeze blowing through their hair, and they were all ready for Modern PPTQ. After the the first couple of rounds the temperature started rising, but players kept their heads cool. Then round 7 finally ended and the TOP-8 was announced. Kasper Zijl and Daem Vorster managed to sneak into TOP-8 on tiebreakers, and they ended up playing in the finals against each other. In the end Kasper with his Death Shadow emerged victorious. Congratulations and see you next time 🙂

Masterpiece Series: Kaladesh Inventions

Before you start reading about awesome special cards in Kaladesh, make sure to check out the prerelease schedule for September 24-25. We will have 6 prerelease events in total, which include single swiss and 2HG (team competition). Prereleases are a great way to get to know the new set and open a few cards for your deck! And now…

Starting with Kaladesh and for the foreseeable future, we’re going to be adding a new feature called the Masterpiece Series. Each individual block will have its own name for the Series (the MasterpieceSeries for Kaladesh block, for example, will be called Kaladesh Inventions), but it will be referred to overall as the Masterpiece Series. Basically, we’re taking what we did with the Zendikar Expeditions and applying it to every set. Here’s what this means:

  • The Masterpiece Series will exist at a rarity higher than mythic rare. For example, in Kaladesh, you will open aKaladesh Inventions card roughly 1 out of every 144 boosters. (Technically, the Kaladesh booster pack says the ratio is 1:2,160 cards.) This is slightly more often than opening a premium mythic rare. These ratios may change for future sets.
  • The Masterpiece Series will be reprints of existing cards with one exception. There will often be cards from that set included in the Masterpiece Series (like how the Battle for Zendikar rare dual lands were included in Zendikar Expeditions), but they will typically exist in the set in a traditional frame in their normal rarity in addition to appearing in the Masterpiece Series. Kaladesh Inventions has a cycle of five mythic rare cards that appear in theKaladesh set. There will never be cards appearing in a Masterpiece Series that can’t be found outside of it. (I’m talking, of course, about the card itself and not the particular creative/frame treatment.)
  • The Masterpiece Series, both in presentation and card selection, will be tied thematically to the world appearing in the block. For instance, all of the Kaladesh Inventions will be artifact cards presented as Kaladeshi artifacts. The frame will likewise have a special treatment that ties into the theme of the block. I will be showing off some of the Kaladesh Inventions cards later in this article, so you’ll get a chance to see what I’m talking about for our first Masterpiece Series. The frame treatment will be exclusive to the Masterpiece Series it appears in.
  • The number of Masterpiece Series cards may fluctuate, but roughly speaking we expect each Masterpiece Seriesto be around 50 cards for the whole block. Kaladesh Inventions, for example, will have 30 cards in Kaladesh and 24 cards in Aether Revolt. The large set and small set in a block will have different Masterpiece cards.
  • All Masterpiece Series cards are printed in English, but they do appear in non-English product.
  • The expansion symbol for each Masterpiece Series will be block-specific, but distinct from the sets in that block. For example, the Masterpiece Series cards in Kaladesh and Aether Revolt will share one unique expansion symbol—they won’t use the Kaladesh or Aether Revolt symbols.
  • All Masterpiece cards will exist only in premium foil versions.
  • Masterpiece cards are planned for Magic Online, but will not be redeemable and are not counted as part of the set. They’re going to be distributed in an exciting new way, but we’re not quite ready to announce what that is. Look for that announcement later this month.
  • Masterpiece cards will not exist in Magic Duels.
  • Masterpiece cards can be played in any Limited format they’re opened in and in any Constructed format in which the card is already legal.

That said, it’s time to finally see some Kaladesh Inventions cards.
