Just a quick article here. A question we have all had on our minds since the announcement of Lorcana is when will it be released? When announced, the developers gave the completely ambiguous answer of Fall 2023. Now we potentially have an answer! At the Lucca Comics and Games convention happening this weekend, Ravensbuger employee… Continue reading Lorcana Release Schedule Potentially Revealed
The bright light of Magic the Gathering was shone on Lorcana this past week thanks to the Professor of Tolarian College (the biggest magic YouTuber) weighing in with his thoughts about the future of our game.

These are all the baseline cards early fans of the game will look back on and say “Hey, I remember when all the info we had on the game was those cards.” Yet, there are going to be a ton more cards released in the first set next fall, and here are my top five cards that I want to see in the next set. They aren’t gonna be long explanations, but ones that suit the character well.
When Lorcana was first announced I think I was the first on board the hype train. This game checks so many boxes for me:
