- 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.
Battlebond is inspired by sports and e-sports. The set contains 254 unique cards; 85 of those cards are new and will all immediately be legal in Commander, 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 new mechanics in Battlebond elevate the promise of Two-Headed Giant to its full potential. The set features card pairs that will interact with one another, and they go in players' decks. There are twenty-two promos, some with alternate art and all with foil treatment, and they come in two-card packs.
Recruit a trusted partner and fight shoulder-to-shoulder, hand-in-hand, or back-to-back for glory and the roar of the crowd! Forge an unbreakable bond with your combat companion and claim your place in the pantheon of champions! 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. And like any good spectator sport, the goal isn't just to win, but to look good doing it. Style points count.
