Exciting news for fans of Magic: The Gathering and Lord of the Rings! In 2023, something amazing is happening. Both these famous things are coming together for a special project. It’s called “Tales of Middle Earth,” and it’s a new set for Magic: The Gathering that features characters and stories from Lord of the Rings. You can see familiar things from fantasy books, but they’ll look different with cool Magic pictures and fun gameplay.
Wizards of the Coast has an exciting project called MTG Lord of the Rings, which is part of their Universes Beyond series. Following the immense popularity of the MTG Warhammer 40k EDH decks, they are taking it up a notch. This time, they have developed a complete Magic set inspired by another intellectual property, along with four Commander decks and some special MTG Secret Lairs. It’s clear that Wizards sees great potential in Lord of the Rings, as they envision it as a lucrative opportunity.
MTG Lord of the Rings release date
Wizards of the Coast has announced the official release date for the MTG Lord of the Rings set. It will be available on June 23, 2023, which is earlier than expected as we were initially informed it would arrive in the third quarter.
But hey, we’re not complaining! The excitement doesn’t end there. MTG Arena players will get a head start, as the set will be released on the digital platform on June 20, just a few days before it hits the tabletop.
