MTG's Adventures in the Forgotten Realm D&D set has been revealed

You may remember that we covered this newest MTG/D&D crossover expansion not too long ago, and in that blog, we talked about it potentially coming out this summer. Well, it appears that things are still on schedule (thank goodness), and not only do we have an official release date, but we’ve also been given a brief glimpse into the set itself. 

So, I figured since there was some good info revealed in this latest drop, It was time for a brief follow-up blog. We’ll talk a little bit about the cards/creatures that have been revealed for this set, along with some upcoming dates that you’re going to want to circle on your calendar. 

With that said, let’s see what’s new!

As we all know, Adventures in the Forgotten Realm is MTG’s newest D&D crossover set that will feature some familiar names, faces, and themes that come straight from the original RPG. A lot of us, myself included, have been waiting for Wizards of the Coast to do a proper crossover between their two biggest game titles, and based on the info that we have so far, it looks like we may have finally gotten it.

I’ll give you an example: We can now officially confirm that Tiamat, the Queen of Dragons will be a part of the Adventures of the Forgotten Realm. This really comes as no surprise since we are talking about a Dragon-themed (as in Dungeons & Dragons) set.

We’ll also see five familiar Basic Lands featured in the Adventures in the Forgotten Realm as well. Those five lands include:

  • Plains
  • Forest
  • Swamp
  • Island
  • Mountain

  • Coupled with these lands and dragons, Wizards has also turned some rather well-known D&D-themed spells, items, and characters into cards as well. Those cards are:

  • Portable Hole - Artifact
  • Prosperous Innkeeper - Creature
  • Power Word Killer - Instant

  • Here’s a closer look at those cards and what they look like together.

    Vorpal Sword and Beholder make an appearance in the set as well, and they look like this:

    I don’t know about you, but I thought all of these cards looked amazing, which is good because, at this stage of the game, I expect nothing less. This will no doubt be the most highly anticipated MTG sets in recent memory and after months of waiting and refreshing pages, we’ve finally been given a little taste of the magical flavor that D&D is adding to MTG (and vice versa). Speaking of months, we can now officially confirm a few key dates that will give us something to look forward to.

    The release date for the Adventures in the Forgotten Realm set is July 18th, at which time, it will be available for Online and Arena players. Prior to that, Wizards has announced a preview for the set that will take place on June 29th. There’s also a little pre-release event happening in July from the 16th to the 22nd, that will lead right into the official paper release happening on the 23rd. So, again, there’s a lot to look forward to between now and July!

    Until we meet again,
