My Little Pony Now Has Its Own Magic: The Gathering Decks

Here’s a new entry to add into your list of “crossovers I did not expect”. In celebration of the series finale of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Magic: The Gathering’s Extra Life charity event, Hasbro has brought together the two brands to produce special edition cards and Ultra Pro playmats.

Of course, the cards are not tournament legal as some of them have hilariously overpowered conditions. For example, the Princess Twilight Sparkle card will automatically win you the game if you also control the rest of the show’s main characters – Fluttershy, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Applejack, and Pinkie Pie.

The cards are sold in a three-pack for US$50. Out of that amount, US$30 will go to the Extra Life children’s hospital charity organisation. Ultra Pro’s Ponies: The Galloping playmat set is priced at US$100, with US$80 going to the same charity organisation. The set contains three 24-inch wide, 13.5-inch tall playmats featuring artwork of characters from the show.

In case you didn’t know, Hasbro owns both My Little Pony and Wizards of the Coast, publisher of Magic: The Gathering. The above products can be bought through Hasbro’s online store.
