I am sure that, by now, you have heard whispers of the conspiracy that has been afoot at Wizards. With the release of the cipher, the Reddit World of Magic exploded into a frenzy trying to decode the future of Magic as we know it! As the words became clear, people were ecstatic they would be getting a Cube-type product this summer.

Answering the question of the conspiracy, however, has only led to more questions. For example, will these cards be Standard-legal? Will fetch lands be included? This was among the cleverer marketing campaigns Wizards has deployed in recent years, and I am very glad they aren’t scared to try new things. For some, it will take much more than decoding ciphers to find the bright places where boom bands are playing, but there are also people in the world who don’t like cookies. That is all I’m saying . . .
As cute as #MTGConspiracy is, putting the announcement in gibberish with no clear translate seems dumb. Too gimmicky to try caring about it.— Joe Spanier (@FoundOmega) February 13, 2014
A guy on reddit broke the #mtgconspiracy cipher in about a half hour. I spent that time watching SPACEBALLS.— Friday (@FridayPfender) February 13, 2014
So Conspiracy is intended to be drafted with 6-8 people, then the pod splits into two 3-4 people FFA games. Nice— Adam Ford (@adamjford) February 13, 2014
So with MtG: Conspiracy, the only question I have is, what formats can the cards be used in? I don't it listed on the announcement @TrickMTG— Original Magic Art (@OriginalMtGArt) February 13, 2014
So mtg Conspiracy feels like plane chase and Clue mashed together in a draft format.— Matthew Beverly (@MattyStudios) February 13, 2014
Interesting that Conspiracy is getting a Chinese Simplified release and not any of the other languages (aside from English and Japanese).— Baz (@ThatDamnAussie) February 13, 2014
All right so what reprints are we expecting to show up in Conspiracy? Fetches? #mtgfinance— Greg (@uselessend) February 13, 2014
At least the summer of multiplayer product for Magic this year includes drafting. Beyond that it's currently not exciting #MTGConspiracy— Tristan Gregson (@TristanGregson) February 13, 2014
