Happy Friday MTG peeps,
As it is Friday, consider getting out to a Friday Night Magic event today and get some gaming in to kick start your weekend. Standard constructed is on tap this evening at OMG! Games here in Barrie, Ontario. To find where your local gaming shop is, try this handy Event / Store Locator.
For today's article on MTG Realm, we want to show a handful of Journey into Nyx spoilers, or rather some art previews part of the digital marketing assets for retailers which was posted to the mothersite yesterday. We've already seen the Journey into Nyx key art Illustration by Tyler Jacobson which had provided much fodder for speculation as to the possibility of seeing an Ajani variant Planeswalker in this last set of the block. Some of these illustrations are likely to make it on to cards while others may simply be graphics for product marketing. Let's have a looky-loo now -
~Very very incredible and beautiful art here. We suspect the first image for Hero's path may be part of the 'Defeat a God' challenge product - perhaps the vinyl playmat graphic. The League graphic is awesome and suggests a battle with a Cyclops god. The Game Day graphic is definitely not a card but simply a marketing graphic. The Launch Day graphic is very cool and we think this could be a spell (instant / sorcery) associated with one of the minor gods. Lastly, its that key art Illustration by Tyler Jacobson.

Theros has become a battlefield. The gods have sent their forces against the mortals to punish the hubris of a few. But the mortals have risen up in defiance and the time has come when Magic™ players will be tested against a god.
