Friendship is Magic: The Gathering

The show may be coming to a close but the pony ride never ends. Via IGN, we have news that My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and the card game Magic: The Gathering are teaming up for a new promotional card set, Ponies: The Galloping, coming soon to Hasbro Pulse.


The three cards in this set are Rarity, Nightmare Moon, and Princess Twilight Sparkle. What’s more, Nightmare Moon is a double-sided transformation card. Flip it to the other side to reveal:

Princess Luna, in her ever popular season 1 appearance!
The cards have silver borders, which means they aren’t legal in Magic: the Gathering tournaments, because they have mechanics that aren’t formally defined outside their own descriptions. For example, Twilight Sparkle’s card description mentions Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, and Pinkie Pie, who don’t have cards of their own yet, so the mechanics described are functionally meaningless, at least for now. Could Ponies: The Galloping grow into a full fledged spinoff?

The set will be available on Hasbro Pulse starting on October 22, and all proceeds will go to Extra Life, a gaming charity that supports Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
