The Greatest Heist

“The vault’s ultimate prize wasn’t exactly what Kellan had imagined”

An ancient vault hiding untold raw magic has been discovered on Thunder Junction. A mysterious, anonymous benefactor has hired the fae Planeswalker, Oko, for a job: seize whatever is inside. But no matter how clever and charismatic he is, Oko knows he can’t do this alone. The vault is guarded by the Hellspurs, Thunder Junction’s deadliest criminal gang–not to mention every other outlaw who wants a piece of the power pie. So Oko uses the Omenpaths to recruit a gang of ragtag, rip-roaring, villains from Magic’s history to pull off the Greatest Heist in the Multiverse!

New Vanguards

This release features seven new Vanguards:

They can be obtained through the OTJ Vanguard packs, which will be available in the Vault for the first time just after the release. After this, they’ll be added to the Standard Vanguard rotation.
