Magic: The Gathering’s The Lord of the Rings: Tales Of Middle-Earth To Arrive On 23 June

MTG Lord Of The Rings

Wizards of the Coast will be releasing The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth, the latest set and biggest collaboration to date for Magic: The Gathering (MTG).

Many of the characters, places and story moments, known and well-loved, have been reimagined for the Magic universe through both art and gameplay mechanics. The set will release on tabletop on 23 June 2023 with more opportunities than ever to play for both new and experienced players.

Acting as an entry point for new MTG players, the set includes a themed Starter Kit, allowing new players to relive their favourite moments from the popular franchise, all while learning the game mechanics. The kit includes two decks legal in Modern, basic learning materials, and tokens.

The One Ring Tempts You

Fans of The Lord of the Rings and MTG alike will be amazed by The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth’s reimagining of familiar characters with immersive gameplay. As part of this massive collaboration, new Legendary Creature cards featuring Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, Saruman, Éowyn, Frodo, and many more will make their impact as powerful cards and potential Commanders for fans of the multiplayer format.

The 1 of 1 Ring Promotion is an extraordinarily rare promotion only for The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth. One copy of this premium foil card with a raised gold foil treatment will be inserted into an English language Collector Booster, printed with 1 of 1 numbering and Elvish script. The precious One Ring could fall into the hands of any player, presenting a unique opportunity for collectors.
