Magic: The Gathering - Assassin's Creed Card Preorders

If you're new to Magic and want to play the TCG rather than just collect the cards, your best option is the Magic: The Gathering: Assassin's Creed Starter Kit. This bundle includes everything you need to start playing, including two Assassin's Creed-themed decks. Along with more common cards, you'll get two Mythic Rare cards and eight Rare cards in each deck. You'll also get a comprehensive beginner guide and boxes to store the two decks. Best of all, it's budget-priced at just $19.

If you want to collect as many Assassin's Creed-themed cards as possible, you should check out the Beyond Booster Box, which contains 24 packs with seven cards each. For the serious MTG collectors and massive Assassin's Creed fans, 10-card Collector Boosters are available to preorder for $27 each. Or you can grab a Assassin's Creed Collector Booster Box with 12 packs for $260--you're saving $64 overall versus buying 12 packs individually.

There's also an Assassin's Creed Bundle with nine Beyond Boosters, a Spindown Life Counter, and a few other goodies for $62.
