HASCON is a fan convention created by Hasbro to promote its various licensed properties, including Transformers, G.I. Joe, My Little Pony and Magic: The Gathering.


The first HASCON took place September 8–10, 2017, at the Rhode Island Convention Center at Providence, Rhode Island, USA.[1][2] It featured the reveal and prerelease of Iconic Masters.

Magic also kicked off its year-long 25th Anniversary celebration with a panel of Magic all-stars, exciting reveals, previews for Ixalan, and inside information with the 25th Anniversary Show. In addition, Mark Rosewater featured in Blogatog Live.[3]

Upcoming event[]

HASCON was initially planned to be a bi-annual event. The next HASCON was announced to take place on September 6–8, 2019, again at the Rhode Island Convention Center at Providence, Rhode Island, USA.[4] However, it has since been delayed with no new date set. According to Mark Rosewater, it would take place in 2020.[5] However, that was before the Covid-19 epidemic started and later that year he later said that there were no plans in the works for the next event.[6]

Hascon promos[]


The 2017 Hascon promos are three Magic silver-bordered cards made especially for HASCON 2017. They feature a mashup of Magic and three of the other Hasbro brands.[7][8][9][10] The promos were designed by Mark Heggen.[11]


Ponies: The Galloping is a three-card charity promotional card set for Magic: The Gathering released, that is a crossover Hasbro's My Little Pony franchise. It is possible that these were originally to be released at the cancelled 2019 event.
