Dark Ascension is the second set in the Innistrad block, being released February 3, 2012.
Dark Ascension continues the storyline of Innistrad on the plane of the same name. Thematically, the plane is still plagued by Werewolves, Zombies, Vampires, Ghosts and other creatures of the night. The set puts a stronger emphasis on these creature types, such as providing a lord for each of them. All the major mechanics of the previous set, including Double-faced cards, return.
The second, 158-card expansion for the Innistrad block for Magic: The Gathering featuring two never-before-seen game mechanics.
