"I'm writing this intro while marathoning episodes of Top Chef. Think anyone will notice?"

—Me, to my editor, about a week ago

Welcome to the Fate Reforged update. My name is Matt, and I'll be taking care of you today. For our first course, we have some delicious card updates for you. The chef has prepared a delectable blend of functional and nonfunctional updates to tickle the senses and please the palate. From savory roast pangolin to the sweet tang of Crypt Rat tartare, there's sure to be something for everyone.

The main course features changes and additions to the Comprehensive Rules. Now that Fate Reforged is in season, the fruits of that set will be on full display: rules for manifest and the other new abilities, support for some of the more eccentric new cards, and a plethora of tweaks and tightening.

Today's feast wouldn't be possible without you, the diner. You inspire us with your insatiable passion for Magic, and you even suggest recipes and techniques to try. I hope you continue to enjoy our creations as much as we enjoy… um, creating them. Let's eat!
