In case you missed it, the latest Magic: The Gathering set, Dark Ascension is in stores now.

Innistrad is a plane of menace and dread where every creature hides a darker aspect. Here, hedonistic vampires stalk the shadows to quench their thirst, and the full moon can transform a simple villager into a savage werewolf. Now the Dark Ascension set returns you to that world, but this time, the monsters are winning, and the humans have been forced to bar the gates of their settlements in defense. Your task is to search Innistrad’s new landscape for the best tools to use in your never-ending quest to outsmart your fellow Planeswalkers. What will you find?

Dark Ascension, the second set in the Magic: The Gathering Innistrad block, features 158 black-bordered cards, including randomly inserted premium versions of all cards in the set. It is available in booster packs, intro packs, event decks, and fat packs. And as with Innistrad, Dark Ascension brings double-faced cards to Magic

And if you want a quick glimpse, take a look at the Major Spoilers Unboxing that we did a couple of weeks ago.

    hey Rodrigo, i need that vault of the archangel for my token deck, wanna trade :). but seriously folks, i am really exited about Dark Ascension, i think there are a couple of REALLY good cards in it. the first is sorin. he is just ridiculous in a control deck, and since most of the Solar Flare decks these days are already running black and white, i think we can count on him showing up in many, many decks. the second is lingering souls. i am not the first to say this, but that card IS squadron hawk. it makes 4 creatures for less mana. i think we will see a deck rather similar to a certain deck that involved Caws, Blades, and/or GOs. so get yer lingering souls now folks. also, what were your other rares?
