The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth brings to life the iconic world of J.R.R. Tolkien and lets you follow the paths of beloved characters in the way only Magic: The Gathering Universes Beyond can. Play your favorite moments of the Third Age or turn Middle-earth on its head and surrender to the temptation of the One Ring. It's all in your hands, so prepare to step onto the road—there's no knowing where you'll be swept off to or who you'll meet!And there's more to Middle-earth than the One Ring. You'll play as beloved characters and visit locations at the heart of the story, from the Shire to Mount Doom. You may be tempted by the Ring along the way (we'll talk more about that mechanic at the debut)—but the gameplay is all about the journey there and back again.Characters we fell in love with, moments that brought tears to our eyes, and the struggle over the One Ring—we've captured The Lord of the Rings through Magic for you to play and replay.The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth features multiple representations of iconic characters—which will be revealed later—to capture the depths of the story and changes. Legal in Modern and Commander (and other Eternal formats) and playable in both Draft and Sealed Deck formats, this set is a love letter to the tale that touched generations and immerses you in Middle-earth itself. The Commander release alongside The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth—which is Eternal legal—carries over that same sentiment and care for the world and words of Tolkien.
The most iconic element of The Lord of the Rings is the One Ring itself: the treasure—and temptation—of Sauron's power. While other Rings of Power were forged for Elven-kings, Dwarf-lords, and the mortal men of Middle-earth, there is only one that matters most: the One Ring to rule them all. And so, as part of an extraordinarily rare and exciting promotion only for The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth, we made one such card.
Serialized as the only one of one, this "Precious" is a traditional foil card printed in the Black Speech of Sauron using Tengwar letterforms and can only be found in a single English-language The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth Collector Booster.
