• Tomb of Annihilation Spoiler Draft Video and Scans

    Wizkids was super awesome and sent Trubie an entire display of draft packs of the new Tomb of Annihilation set from the Dungeons and Dragons universe! Trubie and Melissa recorded a mock draft; watch below.







    Trubie has so far opened two super rares (which is promising out of 8 packs/96 cards - versus 1.75 SRs per 90 packs/180 cards for the current gravity feeds). Scans/spoilers to follow.

    Get hyped! This set looks very exciting.


    Edit: On the rules insert there was also a link to the new rules for the "Double Rainbow Draft" format. They can be found here: http://www.dicemasters.com/DoubleRainbowDraft.pdf

    Edit: spoilers are attached!

    Bonus, new cards from two other draft packs:

      The video was great. Several cool cards there. This set looks promising. More Dragons! More Breath Weapon!

      Thanks, this is really awesome info! Between this info and the draft packs we saw previously, I'm noticing a pattern:
      -Packs with a SR have 7C, 3UC, 1R, 1SR
      -Packs with 2R have 6C, 4UC, 2R

      Mind you, this is a small sample size (we've only seen 4 draft packs opened), so we can't be sure. But it certainly looks like this is how they want to balance it out. Interesting.

      Wow, this is totally rad. Great video and scans. I'm angling locally to do a lot of D&D-only as there is a strong core of AD&D players. These draft packs may do the trick. No directions outside of the insert card right? I need to think about how to best disseminate that information.

      On the rules insert, there's actually a link to the new rules for "Double Rainbow Draft". I'd added a link to it in the article, but seems to of gotten lost in all the edits we've done on it.

      ^ Thanks - that's definitely helpful, and I'm thinking print-outs of the online manual for Faerun Under Siege is my best bet to introduce people to the rules.

      What was the total distribution in the whole case? i.e. how many rares, uncommons, and commons did you get total? I only count 6 rares in the screenshots.

      Finally some Magic Missile art that's relevant, instead of javelin of lightning.

      Holy Avenger is neutral? And no alignment restrictions on characters that can equip it? Fail.

      We've still got 3 weeks till release. Gotta pace ourselves to keep a steady flow of content up until release.

      (and yes, these things sitting unopened in my living room is torture)

      Awesome! So glad to hear that yuns still have packs left to open!

      Is there anyway that we can get clearer scans? I'm trying to read the collector's numbers, but the scans provided are kind of blurry when zoomed in to accurately read the numbers. The rest of the card text is fine, but the numbers are what I'm interested in.

      That's on my end. Wrote a script to produce all those images and neglected to turn up the compression quality.

      We'll have better scans as things go on, and I'll go back and fix these when I have time.

      No worries! Thank you for providing the scans to begin with! I've been keeping track of spoilers and cards shown on my own checklist. It helps me keep up with what cards I have and also helps me narrow down what characters may be available, SRs, etc. This is set I have no clue what's going to show up and I just want to make sure that I have everything written down correctly.

      Pinkfrankenstein's spoiler spreadsheet has all the BACs with confirmed numbers along with all the Commons. Will have the known Rares probably later tonight.
