June 24 2022 will see the release of the next standalone booster set, Uprising that plunges fans into a brutal civil war sweeping across the harsh and unforgiving land of Volcor.
This week, the world was first introcuded to Dromai, an Imperial Illusionist able to conjure the legendary dragons of Volcor out of aether and ash, as well as Fai, a hot-headed Ninja who spearheads the Uprising against the draconian oppression of the Imperials, while Iyslander journeys from her Icy homestead in search of answers to painful questions seared deep within her mind.
Uprising is designed for exceptional booster draft, sealed deck, and constructed play, and introduces the incredible new “Marvel” rarity; each one having a carefully crafted design feature that sets it apart from its regular printing, that will leave players and collectors in awe!
