This set had so much going on that it’s impossible to cover it all in one spot. Here are some in-depth articles about anything you may have missed:

The Brothers War

The Brothers War keeps us on Dominaria but takes us to the distant past. Here we will get to experience firsthand the events of the legendary Brothers’ War between Urza and Mishra. Not only will the story play through key moments of the cataclysmic battle but also gives us a look at the massive robots and machines that the war was fought with.

It will feature both Urza and Mishra-themed prerelease kits. It will also include Jumpstart packs, allowing players to jump right into the action of the set. Lastly, the set gives you the chance to get more of the Magic 30th Anniversary promos that started with Dominaria United.

Phyrexia: All Will Be One

On February 3rd of 2023, we return to one of MTGs darkest planes – Phyrexia. This set will pick up right where The Brothers’ War leaves us. We’re still not sure what the Phyrexians have in store but one thing is for sure though, the battle between Dominaria and the forces of Phyrexia will continue in this set.

March Of The Machines

In the second quarter of 2023, we will have the conclusion of the events of the three previous sets. The outcome is unclear as of now, but when the last war drum sounds and the dust settles, Dominaria, the Multiverse, and Magic itself will be forever changed.

March Of The Machines: The Aftermath

March of the Machine: The Aftermath, will be a small set released shortly after March of the Machines providing an epilogue to the events and tying up the loose ends of a truly epic tale.

Wilds Of Eldraine

In the third quarter of 2023, we venture back to the fairytale world of Eldraine. This go-around we venture out from the kingdoms and keeps we saw with the first set and venture into Eldraine’s wilds. A place filled with adventure – But also great danger.

The Lost Caverns Of Ixalan

In the fourth quarter of 2023, we make a long-awaited return to Ixalan. A plane full of exploration, vampires, pirates, merfolk, and dinosaurs. In the Lost Caverns of Ixalan, we will explore not the sea or the land – But underground.

I started playing Magic in 2015. I love all formats but I particularly love to play and build decks in modern. Pretty much every part of my life has been influenced by Magic in some way or another. It is something I am very passionate about. RIP Simian Spirit Guide.
