Murders at Karlov Manor - Set Info, Spoilers, And More
We recently got our first look into the next MTG set, Murders at Karlov Manor. It takes place on Ravnica where a murder mystery is unfolding. In the spoiler video, we got to see several cards (including some Ravnica: Clue Edition cards), many new and returning characters, unique card treatments, and more - In general, lots of stuff you won't want to miss. So, without further ado, let's jump into the Murders at Karlov Manor set info and spoilers.
Murders at Karlov Manor
Murders at Karlov Manor is a "murder mystery" story which releases on February 9th, 2024. Players take the role of detective Alquist Proft, working for the Ravnican Agency of Magicological Investigations. To solve the mystery at hand, you must investigate, collect evidence, and identify suspects.
Speaking of suspects, no one is above suspicion, and many of the planes recognizable characters (Massacre Girl, Etrata, Izoni, Krenko, Judith, Kylox, Tolsimir Wolfblood, Rakdos, and Aurelia) are under the magnifying glass.
Further adding to the intrigue, there are real puzzles for players to solve!
Across the MKM cards and products, there are puzzles to be solved and a "final reward" for players who can solve the entire thing. Each product in the line contains a puzzle, and the mystery continues online as puzzles will be added there throughout the season as well.
There are a total of 15 puzzles and one "meta puzzle," and when solved, they unlock a secret about the future of Magic: The Gathering! WOTC really went the extra mile to immerse players in the world. I look forward to seeing what they have for the puzzles.

Magnified cards are a treatment found on non-creature cards that offer a close up look at important scenes from the storyline.
The dossier treatment shows the characters being investigated in a way that looks like gathered documents and the flavor texts offer further insight beyond the standard printing. This treatment will only show up on creatures.
Ravnica City Cards
Only seven cards in the set will be getting the Ravnica City treatment, and they're all Ravnica guild leaders. Each card in this treatment will also be available in a serialized version with 250 copies.
Impossible Basic Lands
Starting with Murders at Karlov Manor, some big changes are coming to MTG product lines. Draft boosters and set boosters merge into a single product called MTG Play Boosters. Here is a look at all available products for Murders at Karlov Manor:
- Play Boosters
- Collector Boosters
- Four Commander Precons
Ravnica Clue Edition
You can't have a murder mystery without clues. That said, MTG is collaborating with the board game Clue (also owned by Hasbro) for the set. So far, we know this contains packs similar to Jumpstart that you shuffle together and play with. However, upon completing specific game options, you get to ask questions, get clues, and try to solve an MTG "who-done-it." If you do manage to point the finger at the guilty player, you can actually win the game of MTG that way.
This is set to release sometime after Muders at Karlov Manor. We'll have more information about the exact date in the next batch of information coming January 16th. Until then, let's look at the Ravnica: Clue Edition spoilers.
