New Mechanics

Improved Gems

  • Improved Gems are special gems created by effects present only in PMA cards and Planeswalkers. Each Improved gem will have an unique effect, according to its color.
  • An Improved Gem lasts until it is destroyed, either by a match or by another effect (such as board destruction).
  • In the first release of PMA, only the red version of the Improved gems, the Ignited Gem, will be available in the game.


  • Ignite is the red version of Improved Gems, it can only affect red gems. If there are no available gems during an ignition, a gem of other color will be converted and then Ignited;
  • Ignite hint reads: “When an Ignited Gem is destroyed, destroy a block of 3×3 gems around it. Ignited gems count as Improved gems.”

Mana Field

  • Mana Field is a new mechanic for supports, that features a special effect whenever the player makes a match within a specific zone around the support’s gem.
  • Mana Field hint reads: “This support irradiates an area of effect around it. Whenever you make your first match in your turn inside the irradiated area, this support triggers its Mana Field ability.”

New Planeswalker:

Card Changes

  • The card Mystic Crusader is now displaying the correct Subtype: Human Nomad Mystic.

Other Changes

  • From The Vault (FtV) changes.
    • As previously informed, from this release there will be new behaviors and rules regarding the From The Vault series. Now that we had already released Odyssey, Torment, and Judgment, we decided to put them together in a block, the Odyssey Block.

Regular Booster:

Instead of a booster for each set (ODY, TOR, and JUD), we combined the three sets in one booster that will enter the rotation of regular boosters in the Vault.

  • Now, the cards from the sets of this block are considered regular and will lose the Exclusive tag.
  • There will be 02 (two) options:
  1. Booster Pack: 5 cards booster;
  2. Super Pack: 3x Boosters Pack (5 cards each).
  • The individual boosters will still be available in events and rewards.

Booster Crafting:

The cards from the  Odyssey Block will now be available in the Booster Crafting.

  • The three sets will be together under the From The Vault category.

Crafting Cost

Uncommon: 400 Mana Orbs

Rare: 800 Mana Orbs

Mythic: 4,000 Mana Orbs

Masterpiece: 8,000 Mana Orbs

  • This is the amount of mana orbs you will receive for duplicates in the ODY Block boosters.
    • Uncommon: 20 Mana Orbs
    • Rare: 100 Mana Orbs
    • Mythic: 500 Mana Orbs
    • Masterpiece: 2500 Mana Orbs

Future Sets:

Here are some guidelines  in advance about  how potential From The Vault series will be treated in the future.

  • New From the Vault sets will not become part of the ODY Block.
  • New sets will have their own boosters at first, just like  ODY, TOR, and JUD did. 
  • New From the Vault sets will not be added to the Booster Crafting yet
  • When we release other FtV sets, we will at some point combine them into a block, just like the Odyssey Block
  • This new block will be added to the Booster Crafting under the From The Vault category together with the other older sets.
  • Quest Journal Improvements:
      • Change the Health Potion Cooldown to 3 minutes instead 30 minutes for The Guiding Journal for New Players.
      • We have added a tutorial for the Daily Quest and The Guiding Journal for New Players.
    • The Adamant and Identity objectives had their texts changed as follows:
  • Adamant

“Match {0} or more {Color} gems during a single fight.”


“Match {0} or more {Color} gems with swaps during a single fight.”

  • Identity

“Match {0} or more gems of your Planeswalker colors during a single fight.”


“Match {0} or more gems of your Planeswalker colors with swaps during a single fight.”
