These new mechanics will cause players to reconsider Magic’s meta, as the game’s dynamics will change slightly. Simply put, thanks to this set, we will be able to release a D20! There are many changes that deserve to be explained, so continue reading to find out what these new mechanics bring.
What to expect
The new Adventures in the Forgotten Realms set allows players to explore three iconic dungeons: The Tomb of Annihilation, the Lost Mines of Phandelver, and the Dungeon of the Mad Mage, each time unlocking a new ability. Plus, a new type of enchantment allows players to take on class abilities, providing a resource that can be activated on the trigger or remain active throughout the game.
Roll the dice
What Dungeons & Dragons game doesn’t include dice rolling? Many cards in Adventures in the Forgotten Realms will require players to roll a twenty-sided die, with the better the roll, the better the result.

Two new ways to collect cards are also introduced in Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. The rulebook cards, which were inspired by early Monster Manual art, capture the sense of discovery and mystery that those original books conveyed to players.
Land cards in the style of classic D&D adventure modules will also be available, bringing back a classic art style that many players both love and revere. If you want to play this new set go here and download Magic: The Gathering Arena here. It’s available for PC, Android, and iOS devices.
