Wizards of the Coast is about to try something very different with "Magic: The Gathering," and Director of R&D Aaron Forsythe spilled all of the details to fans this week. "Modern Masters" will be a 229-card set reprinting popular cards from "Eighth Edition" through "Alara Reborn." This is not the first time that WotC has reprinted "Magic" cards, but "Modern Masters" is without a doubt a unique product; this admittedly experimental release breaks the mold for what players can expect from a "Magic" set.

Earlier this week, took a look at what players should expect from Magic: The Gathering's new Return to Ravnica set. With five of the ten guilds of Ravnica returning, and the other five set to appear in an upcoming set, it's an exciting time for Magic players. The Ravnica setting hasn't been seen since 2006, and its signature hybrid card strategies are going to get a shot in the arm with what looks to be three large sets in the upcoming block.

Today, we'll be revealed a new card from the Return to Ravnica set: Rakdos Charm.

It's that time of year again. Magic: The Gathering is about to receive its annual core set upgrade, with Magic 2013 comprising a 294-card mix of new and reprinted content.

Core sets are released each year to tweak the basic strategy of Magic. Some cards return, others do not, and this new mix serves as a base for the year's three-set expansion block. In October, that new block will roll out with the first set Return to Ravnica, bringing back themes from the Ravnica setting last seen in 2005-2006.

Since Standard-format Magic tournaments mandate use of the most recent sets only, it's tempting to read into the tea leaves of early spoiler cards and try to guess what strategies will rule the Pro Tour scene. I would resist that urge with today's card, "Worldfire," which is the best example of a "nuclear option" for any Magic player with their back against the wall.

Opportunities to have an established game designer critique your prototype don't come along very often. They also don't typically come in such a unique form. Richard Garfield, the man behind Magic: The Gathering, Robo Rally, Netrunner, King of Tokyo, and more, has put himself up on eBay.

As you can see by the bidding in the recent screenshot above, you may be able to score Garfield's services at a bargain-basement price.

Congratulations to Japan's Jun'ya Iyanaga on his improbable arrival as this year's Magic: The Gathering world champion! Although Iyanaga is a several-year veteran of professional Magic play, he was not on the tournament's radar until a last chance qualifier victory in the Magic Online Championship Series secured his seat at the big show. After 18 rounds of Swiss-style tournament play, Iyanaga faced off against Richard Bland of England in a best-of-5 series and made it look easy.

Iyanaga swept the series 3-0, but established his commanding lead by taking the second match with the aid of four devastating Galvanic Blast cards and their metalcraft ability. In the final match, he broke out his own take on the Wolf Ramp Run deck archetype and rode it to victory. For a closer look at exactly how Iyanaga won the championship, check out the full card listing of his deck.
