Strixhaven is nearly here! With less than a month left until it’s release, let’s take a look at the cards we know are going to change the tide of the game.

SPOILER WARNING! If you don’t want spoilers for the cards in the Strixhaven set, then stop here! 


With that out of the way – let’s dive into it!

Some Familiar Faces

To start off, we have some faces you have seen before from the cover work. These legendary casters are at the top of their classes – and rascals to boot. These casters will be clinch pieces to keep the college of your choice together. Mix these in with the college deans, and the headmasters, and you will be dominating the field one spell at a time.

The Mystical Archive

Ah, these beauties. The Mystical Archive will not disappoint with reprints like these.

The Mystical Archive is a special series of reprints, including 63 cards from Magic’s past release sets. Expect to see classics reprints like Shock, and some rare gems in there as well. Make sure to keep an eye out for these when your cracking packs – you never know what you might find.


Teacher Knows Best

Let’s not forget about the educators at the school! Deans are double-sided, double coloured legendary creatures. There is a dean for every college, for every field of study.

Ever worried you are going to get mana-blocked out of your legendary creatures? Never again. With the versatility of multiple colours, it hammers home one great lesson – get yourself a card that can do both.


A New Kind of Learning

A brand new system in the Magic universe are the Lesson cards. Lessons are special sorcery cards that can be pulled from outside the game into your hand. There are numerous cards that will allow you to Learn, which allows you to draw a Lesson card. This can be immensely helpful when you are in the process of building your board at any point of the game. Keep an eye out for these cards while your cracking packs – they could be immensely useful.


The Planeswalkers

We got some familiar faces coming into the land of Strixhaven! Not only have the Kenrith kids and Liliana returning in this set, Lukka has made his way from Ikoria to make an appearance. While Rowan, Will, and Liliana have a bit a place in the world of Strixhaven, it will be very interesting what part Lukka has to play in all this…

The Masters

We got dragons, baby! Not just dragons though – they are also the headmasters of the five colleges.

That’s right. The head honchos.

Not only do these big baddies have some great personal abilities, they are pivotal to a proper college deck. They will offer huge benefits to help you make your college deck blow past your enemies. If you’re thinking of making a college deck, do yourself a favour and pick up your corresponding dragon. You’re going to need it.
