As most of you are already aware; the latest Magic: The Gathering set “Return to Ravnica” is about to be released in September– and its going to be an awesome set! Now I know that theres a lot of you out there who really enjoy designing your own Magic card so we thought, “Hey lets do something fun for the community!”. So ladies and gentlemen, without any further ado, please allow me to tell you more about the mtgUK 2012 Design a Magic Card Competition!

The Challenge

OK so the challenge is to: Design a Mythic Rare to represent a guild from the Return to Ravnica Block. These guilds are: Selesnya, Rakdos, Golgari, Azorius, Izzet, Simic, Dimir, Boros, Orzhov, Gruul.

The Prizes ** News Flash! We’ve doubled the Prizes! **

Due to the extremely high level of quality of the cards that have been submitted, we thought it wouldn’t be fair to just have one winner. So we thought, lets DOUBLE THE PRIZES!

OK so how its going to work now is like this, we’re going to split the competition up into 2 rounds and the winner of each round will get a copy of the From The Vaults: Realms boxed set each, completely free! We’ve seen it being sold in the UK for as much as £120, so its definitely valuable.

Anyone can take part!
