Storyline

In a world where animals walk and talk, with an entire civilization of their own, three unlikely heroes find their fates intertwined. There's Helga, a daydreaming frog who'd rather sketch than do chores, suddenly fleeing a nightmarish attack. Then we've got Mabel, a mouse mom whose birthday bash gets crashed by a mud-caked stranger with a wild tale. And Ral is a powerful mage from Ravnica some other mysterious realm who found himself transformed and stranded in a land of giant dandelions.

As their paths tangle in the shadow of an ancient evil, they'll need to pool their mismatched skills before everything is too late...

 

Mechanics

Offspring

When casting a creature spell with the ability, you can pay the indicated Offspring cost. If you do, create another copy of it with 1 power and toughness as it is put in the battlefield.

Gift

As the spell is being cast, a "gift" is received by your opponent, either in the form of a drawn card or any other permanent. For tokens, it is put into the battlefield before any other effects resolve (if the spell was not countered).

Forage

A squirrel-based mechanic. Needs to either sacrifice a Food token or exile three cards from your graveyard to activate. The effect will vary greatly depending on the card using the ability.

Valiant

Triggers added effects if the permanent with the ability is targeted by spells and abilities that the permanent's owner controls. A different flavor of the previous Heroic mechanic.

Class

This enchantment subtype from the D&D crossover set(s) makes a return in Bloomburrow. To recap, the first-level ability is always the default class effect. You can then keep activating the next-level abilities as a sorcery so long as you can pay the costs.

Storm

There are no cards in this set that actually have Storm. But the very busted promising card Ral, Crackling Wit, gives all sorceries and instants with the Storm mechanic as its ultimate loyalty ability.

Paw Modal Spells (Season Cycle)

Not exactly a keyword effect, but some modal cards in Bloomburrow will allow you to choose a number of abilities based on the pre-set paws that are available when you resolve the effect. Season of Weaving for example, lets you choose up to five (5) paws worth of effects, with one, two, and three-paw cost effects to choose from.
