Magic: The Gathering Debuts New Card For Arena And Tabletop

These spells are twice as nice.

5 Comments

Wizards of the Coast is debuting a set of new cards coming to Magic the Gathering, both in its Arena digital version and the classic tabletop game. We have the exclusive reveal of one of the upcoming cards, Finale of Promise.

Finale of Promise is a versatile red card, allowing you to cast target cards from your graveyard. The strongest effect comes if the attribute is 10 or more, which then lets you copy the spells twice with new targets. You can check the full card text, and the artwork from illustrator Jaime Jones, below.

These cards are meant to signify major story moments in Magic lore, such as Niv-Mizzet being reborn.

Magic: The Gathering Arena is the latest digital incarnation of the classic collectible card game, built to be a faster-moving version of the game than previous video game adaptations. Wizards of the Coast also made it more easily expandable to keep up with its steady stream of new card additions, so that it could receive expansions and other additions right alongside the physical game.

This article reads like the author got the spoiler card file in an email with a sentence on what the art is depicting and a reminder from the editor to plug Arena, then slapped together the bare minimum article with the information that was sent to him. It's a shame that there are so many content producers making MTG stuff out of love for the game who will never get the opportunity to spoil a card while passionless articles like this get written to spoil major plot moments in the story.

@liima: To be fair, Wizards is also giving preview cards to a ton of streamers, podcasters, and other content creators. Even the commons and uncommons are being previewed instead of unceremoniously dumped all at once at the end of spoiler season, and the people revealing the preview cards are often writing up interesting articles about the cards and the implications for Limited, Standard, and other formats.

Your main point stands though, this definitely read like a slightly reworded press release.

@liima: Also don't forget that Niv-Mizzet wasn't reborn because of Elder Spell and this post is completly wrong.
The elder spell is still in progress on card Niv-Mizzet the Reborn. And on another card it just says its his own work and in wizards post they also say he planned a way to revive himself in case of emergency, he could not have planned for the elder spell.
