MTGCast Episode 63: Summer of Magic and Lorwyn Tidbits!
"You read it somewhere else, but you heard it here first!"

This Week in Magic
Magic Game Day has come and past and the hosts talk about the tourney and how much loot they won. Wizards announces the "Summer of Magic", a series of limited format tournaments that allow players to win cool foil promo versions of Faerie Conclave and Treetop Village! More Lorwyn info with card scans of the Lorwyn basic lands included into the 2-player starter 10th Edition packs and scans of the Lorwyn and Morningtide novels (check out the logo!) penned by Cory Herndon (YES!) and Scott McGough. We also explore a piece of Magic history with the link to the archive of The Magic Dojo.

Fact or Fiction
Rumors that Lorwyn will heavily feature tribal (e.g. tribal spells like a "Goblin Sorcery"), an evolution theme and feature tribal lords!
