MTG Arena artwork for Elesh Norn from the Phyrexia: All Will be One expansion

[Update #2]: The Shadows Over Innistrad Remastered expansion has been unleashed alongside hundreds of classic cards and a really fun draft environment!

[Update]: MTG Arena's Phyrexia: All Will be One expansion has now arrived with plenty of poison and proliferation.

I hope you're in the mood for a bit of body horror, because MTG Arena's Phyrexia: All Will be One expansion is set to launch this February 7th. Once it arrives it'll bring with it 261 new cards to play around with, ten new planeswalker cards of which five will be compleated, as well as reprints of some fan-favorite cards like Phyrexian Obliterator and Phyrexian Arena.

When it comes to the actual mechanics behind the cards, there's nothing too crazy this time around. As you would expect from a Phyrexian set, a good chunk of cards are focused around poison counters and proliferation, while the Mirran rebellion is all about fancy weapons that come pre-equipped onto token creatures, quite similar to living weapons in former sets.

How all of these mechanics translate to actual cards, that you can check out by visiting the official card gallery. Everything there is neatly sorted by color, so you should be able to get a pretty good idea of what each of the color combos and draft archetypes are going to be all about.

There is one card in specific I would like to highlight, however, and that is Atraxa, Grand Unifier. The reason I'm bringing her up is because her text references a card type that currently doesn't exist - Battle! What exactly it does and how it works, nobody currently knows, but I can only imagine Battle is going to be a part of the massive changes coming to Magic: The Gathering with the March of the Machine expansion.

Whatever the case may be, I'll make sure to let you know once more information becomes available or the Phyrexia: All Will be One expansion actually launches. Until then, have fun thinking up new deck ideas!
