MTG Arena artwork for Primeval Titan from the Historic Anthology 7

[Update #2]: All of MTG Arena's upcoming Wilds of Eldraine set and accompanying Enchanting Tale bonus sheet have now been revealed.

[Update]: MTG Arena is getting Khans of Tarkir in 2023, while Modern Horizons 3 and Pioneer Masters will be coming in 2024.

After a brief yet surprisingly eventful round of teasers, MTG Arena's Historic Anthology 7 and Explorer Anthology 3 have now finally been unleashed. Each anthology brings with it 25 'new' cards to mess around with spanning everything from competitive staples to fan-favorite jank.

Just like the previous ones, each of the two anthologies will set you back 25,000 gold or 4,000 gems and will come with a full playset (four copies) of each card. While the Explorer anthology is somewhat mediocre, its Historic counterpart is definitely worth the asking price as it's filled to the brim with fun cards from eons past like Primeval Titan, Bloodbraid Elf or Sword of Fire and Ice.

Still, I would recommend browsing through the cards yourself before making any sort of decision. You can find the full list of Explorer Anthology 3 additions over at the official website, and the same goes for Historic Anthology 7.

The good news doesn't end there, however, as this update has been accompanied with a nerf to one of Historic and Alchemy's most overplayed cards - Crucias, Titan of the Waves. The new version has the exact same effect as before, though its stats have gone down from 3/3 to 3/1 which means that cards like Orcish Bowmasters and Cut Down can now easily deal with Crucias before it starts generating any extra value.

Additionally, Fable of the Mirror-Breaker has been banned in the Alchemy format for pretty much the same reasons as when it was banned in Standard. It's just too efficient of a card and too annoying to cleanly remove, so even though it'll be rotating in the near future, Wizards of the Coast figured it would be better to just get rid of it right now.

The final (and rather minor) thing worth mentioning is that winning a match by milling your opponent now has a fancy new animation! I can only hope we'll get more of these in the future as having the opponent simply explode after assembling a stupidly elaborate win condition is quite the letdown.

Whatever the future might bring, I'll make sure to let you know once the next big update arrives. Until then, have fun with all of the new cards!
