Hey all! Hope you enjoyed your Mirrodin Besieged Preleases. Participation was spectacular and we thank everyone who chose a side as the war on Mirrodin kicks into high gear! As the battle continues to rage, you will have several ways to participate and support your side.
First, after the release events finish, there will be new ways to earn (and use) Phyrexian and Mirran War Marks. We will announce the first opportunity next week, so stay tuned! Show support for your side by using War Marks whenever you can.
Second, if you haven't gotten your Ariok or Moriok avatar yet, what are you waiting for? Just enter this week's Thursday Night Magic Online event. If you can't make it, don't worry, they will be available periodically over the coming weeks. Show your allegiance by setting Auriok or Moriok to be your avatar today.
Without further ado, here are the announcements for this week.
