Winter's Veil CCG cards previewed

A little while back, we heard from Upper Deck that there would be a new set of holiday cards coming out for the Feast of Winter Veil ingame holiday, and now reader Dave C has spotted a preview for the cards in the aptly named Previews magazine. If I recall correctly from my comic collecting days, Previews is a magazine for retailers published by a distributor so they can know what's coming in the next few months and how many of each product to order.

At any rate, what's important is that they have a short preview of the upcoming holiday set, and while specifics are still unclear, we're told that each set will have ten exclusive game cards, two Pet mini-cards, three booster packs, and a special "Feast of Winter's Veil" box in it. Unfortunately for the MMO players, none of these cards will be ingame loot cards, but as we said when we first heard about this set, it might be a nice gift for someone who plays the card game itself.

Dave also says the Previews issue has a three page preview of the WoW comic book, and obviously WoW shows up on the cover as well. So expect a lot of WoW-related goodies hitting your local comic book store this holiday season.

Two new TCG sets (and new loot card series) coming in November

Saturday at BlizzCon, WoW Insider got a chance to sit down with a couple of folks from Upper Deck (including David Baumgartner, who worked on designing the original TCG, and also showed up at the BlizzCon WoW Insider meetup), and in between the turns of a short game, they hooked us up with info about a few upcoming releases for the WoW TCG.

You probably already know about the Fires of Outland set, coming on August 22nd (that's the one that has the Spectral Tiger Mount in it), but we were also told about the next set release, which will be called March of the Legion, and will drop in November. There will be new loot cards for that set (we've haven't been told what they are yet, but when we hear, so will you), as well as the introduction of "sub-factions" (I'm assuming this is factions like Scryers or the Mag'har), demonic allies, and new powers for Heroes. Also, each booster pack in this set will have 19 cards instead of the current 15, and 19 cards will be the standard from now on. More cards for the buck!

The other new set we heard about is a special holiday set, also in November-- Upper Deck is going to release a Feast of Winter's Veil collector's set, and it'll have stuff from the ingame holiday to use in the TCG, as well as 10 exclusive game cards (not sure what that means), and Pet mini-cards. As far as we were told, the collector's set won't have any loot cards in it, but if you're into the TCG (or know someone who is, as they're marketing it as a gift set), maybe it'll pique your interest.

At any rate, the thing we're most excited about, of course, is the new loot cards coming with March of the Legion, which hopefully we'll hear deets on soon. I still haven't quite been sold on actually buying these things-- the card game is fun, but all of my WoW spending money is going to playing the MMO at the moment. Still, if you're into it, a new set is always exciting to hear about.
