THE newest card set for Magic: The Gathering, Strixhaven: School Of Mages, has officially made its way to tabletops globally. Fans of the trading card game have already had a taste of the new cards since they launched digitally last Friday in MTG: Arena. Now budding mages can put their newly learnted skills to the test and add to their physical decks.
Strixhaven: School of Mages introduces new mechanics to the game as well as new spells and mages. The Strixhaven set features five different colleges of magic: Lorehold, Prismari, Quandrix, Silverquill and Witherbloom. These were introduced to fans via a Wizards of the Coast Stream last month. Each of the five colleges will come with different magical affects and play styles to choose from.
Two core mechanics are also introduced in Strixhaven: School of Mages. “Magecraft” can offer different effects when casting instant or sorcery spells while “Learn” will allow players to draw Lesson cards from outside of the game. Players can even use school mascots to come to their aid.
There will also be special edition cards to collection within Draft, Set and Collector Booster Packs. 63 cards in total have a showcase frame design. There are also Special Japanese Artwork variations inside Collector/Japanese language Booster Packs to collect.
