WHAT’S NEW

New Collection: Dungeons & Dragons – Adventures in the Forgotten Realms has arrived! Get your hands on over 200 new cards, 6 new Planeswalkers, 1 new event and more! Now in Magic: Puzzle Quest!

NEW MECHANICS

Pack Tactics

  • Pack Tactics is the Magic: Puzzle Quest version of the flavoured Pack Tactics that takes into consideration the total amount of power of all attacking creatures in order to trigger an effect
  • In Magic: Puzzle Quest, Pack Tactics is a named trigger that activates special effects if the player controls 2 or more buffed creatures at the beginning of combat. Pack Tactics reads:
    “At the beginning of combat on your turn, if you control 2 or more buffed creatures, perform the following effect(s).”

Venture

  • Venture is the Magic: Puzzle Quest version of Venture into the Dungeon that enables players to play dungeon cards from outside the game and advance through their rooms.
  • In Magic: Puzzle Quest, when players Venture into the Dungeon, if they don’t already control a Dungeon at play, a prompt (similar to STX’s Learn) will be presented for players to choose one to be put into play. When they do, the dungeon will enter the board as a support of its first room, triggering its effects. If they already control a dungeon at play, they’ll advance to its next room and trigger its effects.
  • When a dungeon is completed, the player will earn Dungeon Spoils, a player evergreen that lists all completed dungeons, used for payoffs for having completed a dungeon.
  • Venture is both a keyword and an evergreen that reads:
    “If you don’t control a Dungeon, pick and create a Dungeon support under your control. Otherwise, destroy your Dungeon support. Then, advance to one of the available rooms.”
  • Dungeon is both a subtype and an evergreen that reads:
    “When you Venture into the last dungeon room, perform its effects, gain Dungeon Spoils, and destroy your dungeon support.”
                                         
Venture                                           Dungeon                                   Dungeon Spoils

Roll a D20

  • Roll a D20 is the Magic: Puzzle Quest version of AFR’s cards that ask the players to roll a die.
  • In Magic: Puzzle Quest, when players Roll a D20, their board will shuffle. This is designed not only to provide the randomness flavor of a die, but also so that board mechanics (like KHM’s Foretell/Foretold) can be more adaptable and easy to trigger.
  • After shuffling, the player’s D20 evergreen will be updated with a random number from 1 to 20. Cards that roll a die perform different effects according to the value displayed on the D20 player evergreen.
  • Roll a D20 is both a keyword and evergreen icon that reads

    “Shuffle the board and roll a D20. If you don’t have a D20 evergreen, gain one. Then, perform one of the following effects according to the value displayed on your D20 evergreen.”

  • D20 is player evergreen icon that reads:
    “Whenever a card rolls a D20, randomize a value from 1 to 20.”

Hired

  • Hired is the Magic: Puzzle Quest version of cards that trigger special effects when mana from a treasure was used to cast them
  • In Magic: Puzzle Quest, treasure tokens will be adapted to give the evergreen icon named Hired to whichever cards they give mana to. Some cards will activate special effects if they have the Hired evergreen when cast. Hired reads:
    “This card received mana from a Treasure.”
