Hey there, gang! Remember way back on Monday when I offhandedly mentioned there were some conspiracies you didn't reveal right away? Well, now is the day that we'll actually be talking about those! As we covered earlier in the week, some of the Conspiracies start the game in your Command Zone, face-up, already doing something neat. 8 of them, however, start the game face-DOWN in your Command Zone, waiting for you to spring them at the moment of your choosing! These all have 'Hidden Agenda' abilities.
It’s a conspiracy (week)! How to use Lore Seeker
Let's keep the ball rolling on our Conspiracy week! One of the many cards in Conspiracy that messes with the drafting process itself is .

What better 'first' to kick off this topic than the ultimate "FIRST" card,? Power Play is one of the thirteen cards with the new type of "Conspiracy".

Tournament Tuesday: You Can’t Sanction Conspiracy Drafts
It is now five days after the launch of Conspiracy. We here at the rules tips blog hope you had a lot of fun drafting it so far.

That means you'll get at most 1 Planeswalker Point for any event you play in, if it's entered in Wizards Event Reporter as casual non-sanctioned. No FNM No GPT No PTQ No Grand Prix No Pro Tour If your local shop has been
