Description[edit | edit source]
The two decks represent the forces of the Zendikari and the Eldrazi fighting over control of the plane of Zendikar. They contain six preview cards for Battle for Zendikar: Sheer Drop, Retreat to Kazandu, Veteran Warleader, Oblivion Sower (alternate art), Dominator Drone, and Forerunner of Slaughter.
Three older cards receive new artwork: Avenger of Zendikar, Consume the Meek, and Primal Command. Rocky Tar Pit is printed in a modern frame for the first time. Forked Bolt is printed as a common; a downshift in rarity from its original printing as an uncommon.
Background[edit | edit source]
Drawing on the powerful mana that surges through the roiling land, Zendikar's forces have joined together to defend their plane. The Eldrazi titans, trapped for thousands of years, have broken their bonds. Now their numberless spawn begin to overrun Zendikar. Can Zendikar resist this onslaught? Or will the Eldrazi triumph?
