There’s a whole new set of cards coming to Magic: The Gathering Arena and I’ve been allowed a sneak peek at them by Wizards of the Coast. I haven’t seen all of the cards, only those from the white plain.
They’re from the Ancient Egypt-themed Amonkhet Remastered set coming exclusively to Arena this Thursday, 13th August. It’s exclusive because the Amonkhet set already came out in the real-world three years ago, before Arena – which completely changed my mind about Magic – existed. But the Remastered release includes some cards from the Hour of Devastation set too, plus two extra special cards from long, long ago.
One of those is Wrath of God, a four-cost sorcery which destroys all creatures in play, yours and theirs. (Indestructible creatures are apparently the only ones safe.) The other is Rest in Peace, a two-cost card which exiles all cards from all graveyards.
There’s no word how much the Amonkhet Remastered set will cost to buy from the in-game Store yet, but you will be able to earn the cards through play, either in Draft, as rewards or by crafting them.
Here are the rest of the Amonkhet Remastered white cards.
