Mike Eaton presents 9 cards from Khans of Tarkir, Magic: The Gatherings latest set, and the deck-building ideas they inspired.
Hello and welcome, Magic: the Gathering players, fans and spectators! There’s a new set on the block - Khans of Tarkir, which officially went on sale for the first time yesterday - and you may be wondering, “What’s in it for me?”
