Friendship is Magic. Magic is Gathering. Why not both? Going on sale today at noon Eastern from Hasbro, Ponies: The Gathering is a collection of special limited edition cards and Ultra Pro playmats celebrating the series finale of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Magic: The Gathering’s November 2 Extra Life charity event.

Sold in a three-pack for $50, $30 of which goes to the Extra Life children’s hospital charity organization, there is no way in heck the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic cards are tournament legal. The Nightmare Moon card, showcasing the animated series’ very first antagonist, is a two-sided card with the villain’s alter ego, Princess Luna, on the other side. The Rarity card asks players to produce a My Little Pony toy they own, gaining protection from colors appearing on that toy, making multi-colored pony Rainbow Dash even more overpowered than before. Finally, there’s Princess Twilight Sparkle, a card that automatically wins the game if the player controls the rest of the show’s “mane six”—Twilight, Fluttershy, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Applejack, and Pinkie Pie.

It’s nice to see Hasbro’s two most magical properties coming together to do some good.

Princess Luna doesn’t look good here. Like she didn’t sleep for several nights.
