Battlebond is the first-ever Two-Headed Giant-focused Magic booster set. It will be released on June 8, 2018. Battlebond is the Innovation Product for 2018, and is designed to be drafted.[2][3]

Set details[edit | edit source]

Battlebond is inspired by sports and e-sports.[2] The set contains 254 unique cards ; 85 of those cards are new and will all immediately be legal in Comamnder, Legacy, and Vintage. Returning favorites from throughout Magic 's history (many with new art) round out the set and cultivate an environment of two-on-two combat and sport. The Battlebond set is designed to be drafted with players who will make groups of two players for Two-Headed Giant multiplayer games.[2]

Battlebond can also be played Sealed. Most of the unique mechanics — the main selling point of the play experience — indifferent to the format, so long as it's Two-Headed Giant.[3]

Promos[edit | edit source]

There are twenty-two promos, some with alternate art and all with foil treatment, and they come in two-card packs.[3]

Flavor[edit | edit source]

All new cards in Battlebond depict the environment of Valor's Reach, an area on the plane of Kylem, where combat is fought two-on-two.[2] And like any good spectator sport, the goal isn't just to win, but to look good doing it. Style points count.[3]

The new mechanics in Battlebond elevate the promise of Two-Headed Giant to its full potential.
