Conspiracy: Take The Crown is Coming To The Fantastic Store

Friday, August 26th is a huge day for the Magic: The Gathering scene – Conspiracy: Take The Crown is releasing! Come pick up your box next Friday, then integrate the new cards into your deck and join us for FNM.

Product Details

“Clearly the crown is up for grabs. Will you claim it?

No more jokes. No more intrigue. For real this time.

The throne no longer sits empty, but deception, danger, and even death await around every corner.

Add deeper layers of intrigue to your next Magic draft and begin plotting as soon as you open your first booster pack! The Conspiracy: Take the Crown set builds on the revolutionary abilities introduced in the original Magic: The Gathering—Conspiracy set, with new cards that affect the draft itself and new conspiracies that twist the rules against your foes. Trade votes and spread your attacks to manipulate the game in your favor. Seize the crown to give yourself a greater edge—if you can keep it.

How will you plot your way to the throne?

This set is designed for eight-player drafts followed by free-for-all games of three to five players each.” – Wizards of The Coast

Turn Your Pokemon Cards Into Cash!

 

Here at The Fantastic Store, we’re currently paying top dollar for your old, unwanted Pokemon Cards!

Does your desk look like this?

 

We’ll be happy to take that clutter off of your hands and put some cash in your wallet!

  • For any Common, Uncommon, Rare, Reverse Holo, or Trainer cards in Near-Mint to Mint condition, we’re currently paying $.05/Card in cash ($.06/Card in store credit), a rate you won’t find any where else.
  • We’re also looking for Ultra Rare, Secret Rare, EXs, and Full Arts – bring them in and we’ll make you a cash offer.
  • While they’re definitely necessary to the game, we’re currently not taking in basic Energy Cards.

In order to save time when you get here, please prepare your trade-in by doing the following:

  • Remove all cards from any binders, protective sleeves, etc.
  • Have all of your cards facing the same direction.
  • Please make sure cards are transported securely in order to prevent any incidental damage; rubber bands are a card’s worst nightmare.
