Release/Launch Party cards

From MTG Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Release/Launch Party promo cards are cards given away for paying to play at release events. From Avacyn Restored onwards they are given away at the first Friday Night Magic after release day. Launch Party cards are stamped or otherwise marked to identify them as the release card, are foil, and bear the card's expansion symbol or logo as a watermark.
