Magic: The Gathering’s latest set, due later this month, is called Innistrad: Midnight Hunt and it brings a taste of the spooky. Which is fitting because we’re heading into that spooky time of the year -- Halloween. Thematically, Innistrad: Midnight Hunt features those things Michael J. Fox turned into while car surfing to the Beach Boys back in the 1980s - Werewolves. Plus, more undead-ly things -- as depicted in our exclusive card reveal.

But, back to werewolves for a mome. The cool thing about their Magic depiction is that they adhere to the whole “full moon transformation” dealy -- where a normal teen could turn into a menacing creature of the night when put on keg duties during such a lunar time. Ahem.

Okay, so the look and feel is definitely a lot more G for Gothic than an ‘80s movie, with art and card design that plays into the more macabre side of this time of the year. And with the new werewolf cards we see the introduction of new mechanics Nightbound and Daybound which adhere to the two states of the werewolf. With 19 double-faced cards being introduced in Innistrad: Midnight Hunt, players will get to choose between playing into the strengths of a strong creature of the night or simply trusting in their Planeswalker’s human abilities to get things done.

Also coming in the new set is the return of Flashback, which plays off the werewolf theme and that of the undead via making good use of the graveyard. Thanks to the generous and ghastly folks over at Wizards of the Coast, before the tabletop Midnight Hunt begins on September 24, we’ve been given the scoop on a new bit of cardboard -- powered by Flashback.

Corpse Cobble - Instant

As an additional cost to cast this spell, sacrifice any number of creatures.
Create an X/Y blue and black Zombie creature token with menace, where X is the total power of sacrificed creatures.

Flashback (You may cast this card from your graveyard for its flashback cost and any additional costs. Then exile it).

As per its namesake and wonderful art by Jenn Ravenna Tran, Corpse Cobble allows you to whip up a fresh zombie out of that age-old pastime we call a ‘creature sacrifice’. With the ability to cast directly from your graveyard, it suits the darker and spookier set perfectly. Not to mention giving you the ability to add a zombie into play and mitigate the loss of a creature card thanks to the instant nature -- which means bringing your favourite pet back in zombie form. In addition to the ‘80s movie references in this piece.

The Midnight Hunt set will be available for tabletop on September 24 in Draft Boosters, Set Boosters and Collector Boosters, including the Midnight Hunt Bundle and two Commander decks. It also makes its way to MTG Arena on September 17.
