Magic The Gathering: Dominaria Unita officially presented

Magic The Gathering

On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Magic The Gathering, Wizards of the Coast has officially presented to the public the new expansion of the trading card game released on September 9th and called Dominaria Unita, returning in fact to the legendary setting in which the first was set legendary set.

Thirty years ago, Dominaria's plane of existence was the origin of it all and set the stage for the battles of planeswalkers and giants of magic that would take place in the following years. It was full of elves, goblins, dragons, angels and many other creatures scattered in beautiful landscapes where you could hear the crackle of spells. An evocative and inviting dimension, in which the rich depth of stories to tell was only in its infancy.

Today, Magic has shared with players dozens of planes of existence, remote places in the Multiverse, each with their own rules and unique features, but its home has always been Dominaria. That's why Wizards of the Coast has decided to bring fans back to where it all began.

But what are the answers who is looking for Karn, given that Dominaria was looking forward to a bright and prosperous future? Perhaps in his heart he knows that the enemy is already present, and it is only a matter of time before the conflict breaks out.

Stay tuned on August 18th as well, as Wizards of the Coast will present, during the Wizards event Presents the entire history of the set, plus other preview contents of the cards that will be part of it.

Lost Legends

United Dominaria is a turning point between celebrating Dominaria's past and looking forward to the future with a story that spans the Multiverse. And since Magic will celebrate its 30th birthday in 2023, Wizards of the Coast has decided to make it literally legendary with some really interesting initiatives.

The first of these is the addition, within the Collector Booster physical, some cards from the Legends expansion, originally printed in 1994. A way for collectors to be able to obtain cards that are decidedly dated and that have made the history of Magic The Gathering.

Ready for Wizards Presents?

As little said above, on August 18th there will be Wizards Presents, the event in which the company will present the news regarding both Dungeons & Dragons and Magic The Gathering, with a particular focus on what remains to be seen during the second half of the year. 2022 and big announcements regarding 2023, including new Secret Lair and expansions as part of Universes Beyond (hopefully more news on the Lord of the Rings set).

Meanwhile, you can already pre-order the products related to Dominaria Unita, starting with the Draft Pack, containing three packs of the new expansion that you can find at this link. And if you want to start playing immediately, we recommend the Jumpstart pack of envelopes, where you just need to mix two of them to play immediately and which you can buy at this link.

Magic: The Gathering’s Next Set Will Hide Extremely Valuable Vintage Cards in Some Packs

Today Wizards of the Coast revealed new details about Magic: The Gathering’s next set, Dominaria United. While the first hints of story were shared, the really surprising news is that some booster packs will contain original cards printed for the 1994 set Legends.

In a video announcing the news, WOTC explained that it found sealed boxes of actual Legends booster packs in a warehouse and wanted to find a way to distribute those cards to players. As such, they decided to open the packs and insert these original printings into Collector boosters for Dominaria United as both a tie-in to Magic’s very first plane and a celebration of its history as the game approaches its 30th birthday.

Many of the cards in Legends are extremely rare and valuable, making the idea of finding one in a brand new booster an exciting proposition. Some of these cards are even part of Magic’s infamous Reserved List, meaning they have never been reprinted in any form (and theoretically never will). That includes The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, a legendary land card on the Reserved List with a current market price of nearly $4000 USD according to TCGplayer, which would be quite a shocking treat to crack open.

This isn’t actually the first time WOTC has put original Reserved List cards into the booster packs of a new set either. In 2009, booster packs from the first Zendikar set had a chance of including a “Priceless Treasure” card, which were repackaged copies of some of Magic’s most powerful and famous cards – including the legendary Black Lotus. What’s not clear at the moment is if any card from Legends could pop up in Dominaria United or just the most desirable ones like Zendikar (or even how frequently they might appear).

But apart from the prospect of finding a piece of cardboard worth thousands of dollars in your booster, WOTC also confirmed that Dominaria United would include a legendary creature from the actual set in every booster pack just like the Dominaria set from 2018. There will be more than 40 legendary creatures in the set, which ties in nicely with the Legends cards thematically.

Additionally, we got some interesting details on what the story could look like for Dominaria United and beyond, with WOTC saying this is the first act in a story that will span across the next four sets. That story has been building slowly for the last year and a half, and the reveal that this one will follow the planeswalker Karn “as he looks back on Dominaria’s past to prepare for</a> its future” could feed speculation that the following set, The Brothers’ War, may have some time travel shenanigans at play.

The Dominaria United story will begin its full reveal on August 10 and conclude before preview season starts in earnest on August 18. That’s all leading toward Dominaria United’s eventual release on September 9. And if you're looking for Magic's tie-ins to universes beyond its own, we recently revealed the cards in the brand new Fortnite Secret Lair.
