It was the aftermath of the Phyrexian Invasion on the plane of Eldraine. Though its denizens live on, their world is left devastated and shattered. Both Queen Linden and King Algenus lost their lives protecting the plane valiantly. Will Kenrith inherits his father's sword, and sets out to fix whatever is left of his homeworld, while her twin sister Rowan Kenrith chooses a more adverse path to the plane's complete restoration. Meanwhile, other forces are at work, seeking to take advantage of the plane's current weakened and slumbering state...




These 2-for-1 investment cards, as expected, make their return to the second Eldraine-focused set. The implementation itself is mostly the same, though expect wackier effects and more colors on both the left and right sides of the card for all types and all rarities.


These delicious tokens will once again be a major theme for this set. Their implementation and use would see even more effect synergies, and rare as they may be, other Food-type permanents should also become available.


Even if removing the fact that sagas are now 'deciduous' mechanics, they still fit the theme well enough that they are bound to become an important part of this set. Expect more re-imagined fairy tale scenes with these enchantment types.

Role Tokens

Wilds of Eldraine introduces seven brand new predefined tokens, which are enchantment auras that come from various card effects. Each role provides the following stats to the echanted creature, and only one can be attached at a time (the latest aura replaces the last):

  • Cursed - base power and toughness becomes 1/1
  • Monster - gives +1/+1 and trample
  • Royal - gives +1/+1 and Ward {1}
  • Sorcerer - gives +1/+1 and "Whenever this creature attacks, scry 1." 
  • Wicked - gives +1/+1 and "When this Aura is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, each opponent loses 1 life."
  • Young Hero - enchanted creature has "Hwnever this creature attacks, if its toughness is 3 or less, put a +1/+1 counter on it."
  • Virtuous - gives +1/+1 for each enchantment you control (Commander only)

The mechanic is easy enough to understand if you imagine it swapping between a single creature. The tricky part of role tokens is that only one type can be on the field per controller. This is because the official rules implies that even if the aura was attached to a different creature, all previous roles (from other creatures) are removed. This also means that two role auras can co-exist in a single creature so long as each role is controlled by a different player.


Another rather colorful take on kicker-like mechanics, cards with Bargain provide you the option to sacrifice an artifact, enchantment, or token, in order to access additional effects (rather than making it mandatory). Quite simple on its own, but creates this somewhat flavorful combination when Role tokens are also taken into account, especially for cards like Spiteful Hexmageimage.


This ability simply checks if at least two or more nonland permanents entered your battlefied in a single turn. After that, so long as the creature with Celebration attacks, an extra effect is triggered. Remember that this mechanic only needs to confirm appearance of the two permanents. They don't need to enter at the same time, and it doesn't matter what happens to them immediately afterward.

Planeswalker Limitation Update

Starting with Wilds of Eldraine, MTG sets will only have one planeswalker card per set moving forward. This can change with the central theme of the set, of course. But for typical Standard sets, this will be the norm starting next month. For the current upcoming set, the featured planeswalker will be Ashiok, Wicked Manipulatorimage.


Enchanting Tales

Much like other Bonus Sheets for other sets, Enchanting Tales will feature a curated set of 63 enchantment reprints that features a special card frame for the exclusive set. They can be used in Limited format events, but for Constructed, they will only be legal in wherever format the original card is currently legal in (none of them are legal in Standard). Artwork features visual themes that is similar to what you might see on classic picture story books. There will also be an alternate set of anime cards for this same exclusive subset.
