The lights are on
Magic 2015, the annual core set for the long-running collectible card game, will be out next month. As is customary, Wizards of the Coast has been slowly revealing the set. What is unusual, is that a number of video game luminaries are playing a role designing some of the cards.
We were fortunate enough to bring you the reveal of Blizzard chief creative officer Rob Pardo’s contribution, Xathrid Slyblade. In addition to Pardo, Magic 2015 will feature a who’s who of the gaming world.
A number of these cards have been revealed, and we’ve put them into the gallery below. We’re getting our first look at Notch’s “Aggressive Mining,” Brian Fargo’s “Yisan, The Wanderer Bard,” and Mikey Neumann’s “Chasm Skulker” today.
In addition to Magic 2015, Duels of the Planeswalkers 2015 is due out this summer. For more on that, check out our preview from PAX East. For more cards from the upcoming set, head over to Magic Spoiler.

Our TakeMagic 2015 is going to pull me right in, and I definitely want a full set of the designer cards. Some of them might never get decked, but the concept is so cool that I’d love to have them.
