Magic: The Gathering fans will have more reasons to celebrate the trading card game's 25th Anniversary this year as Wizards of the Coast just announced HASCON, Hasbro's first ever convention and Iconic Masters.

HASCON will take place on September 8-10 in Providence, Rhode Island. Iconic Masters won't be released until November 17, so the first players to play the set will be the first to see the cards in public. According to Wizards, Iconic Masters "brings an array of Angels, Sphinxes, Demons, Dragons, and Hydras alongside some of our favorite and most memorable spells over the game's entire history." Each booster box will contain 24 packs, and each booster packs will be have an MSRP of $9.99. No other details about the set has been released, but we'll probably find out in HASCON.

The convention will also feature Ixalan, the next big set and world of Magic: The Gathering, and more details will be shared about that set in the product announcement in June.
