WHAT’S NEW

  • Heavy battles are going to take place in Kaldheim.
  • Get your hands on over 240 new cards, 5 new Planeswalkers, 2 new events, and more! Now in Magic: Puzzle Quest!

NEW MECHANICS:

Boast

  • Boast is the Magic:PQ version of the Boast ability, which allows players to pay an additional mana cost when a creature with Boast attacks, to trigger a second effect.
  • In Magic:PQ, when a creature with Boast attacks, that creature’s owner may drain mana from their hand at the next turn to activate the Boast ability.

Foretell

  • Foretell is an evergreen that allows players to exile a card from their hand, to later cast it from the exile for an alternate cost.
  • In Magic:PQ, when a card with Foretell is exiled, a Foretold token support related to the exiled card is created on the board.
  • When this support is destroyed, the exiled card will return to its owner’s hand with full mana, with a new icon ability named Foretold, which grants to some cards to trigger additional effects.

 

Foretell               Foretold

Changeling

  • In Magic:PQChangeling is an icon ability that gives a creature every creature subtype.

Snow

  • Snow is a gem-based mechanic that works by creating synergy between cards with the Snow ability and the special Snow Gems.
  • Snow Gem is a special gem that can give some extra mana to cards with the Snow evergreen. Also, some cards gain additional effects if cast with “snow mana”.

Herald

  • Herald is an adaptation for double-sided cards with God creatures at one of these sides.
  • When a card with Herald enters play, their first cast will always display the non-god side. That card can’t be reinforced, and when cast a second time, if the player still controls the non-God side, the new version will enter the battlefield as the God.

NEW PLANESWALKER:

Tibalt, Cosmic Impostor

“Tibalt should have been executed or jailed for life. Instead, he invoked a potent and hateful spell, from the devil’s utterances and his own grim discoveries. The spell fused his own essence with theirs, at the cost of experiencing all the pain he had inflicted on others.”

Tyvar Kell

“Tyvar is King Harald’s younger brother, and he’s lived most of his life in his brother’s shadow.
