The epic conclusion of Magic's greatest battle is upon us! Elesh Norn and her Phyrexian army have finally invaded the Multiverse, breaching countless planes. Can the remains of the Gatewatch turn the tide as the Phyrexian hordes threaten to assimilate or destroy everything in their path? The fate of all planes is at stake.

It's time to join the rest of the Multiverse in this climactic battle touching every plane you've ever known and loved. Your first look at March of the Machine is here.

March of the Machine is the culmination of more than a decade of Phyrexian machinations, all leading to a shift that will fundamentally change the Multiverse.

Breach the Multiverse

The fates of countless planes hang in the balance, but there is hope—those planes aren't planning to go down without a fight.

Stand with the greatest heroes of Magic from virtually every plane we've visited in the Multiverse. The Phyrexians are thorough—though unexpected allies have now joined our heroes' fight against the Phyrexian onslaught.

Ghalta and Mavren Thalia and the Gitrog Monster

It will take every last one of them, because the Invasion Tree has opened portals in every corner of the Multiverse, no matter how seemingly innocuous . . .

Jungle Hollow Rugged Highlands

Scoured Barrens Swiftwater Cliffs Thornwood Falls

Tranquil Cove Wind-Scarred Crag

Or devastatingly familiar . . .

Heliod the Radiant
Heliod, the Warped Eclipse

Omnath, Locus of All

The Phyrexians have everything they need to complete their great work. They have the Multiverse at their oily fingertips, they have an army the likes of which no plane has ever seen, and they have devastated and compleated the Planeswalkers who sought to stop them.

Yet hope, as always, remains.

Moment of Truth

This is March of the Machine.

Planechase Returns!

With the Phyrexian invasion of the entire Multiverse underway, this is the perfect time for Planechase! This multiplayer supplement lets you travel from one location to another, with the rules changing based on where your battle is currently taking place. Chase the Phyrexians around the Multiverse or add some flavor to your next Commander battle.

Each March of the Machine Commander deck comes with ten different Planechase cards—five new, and five reprints. Here's a preview from the 50 Planechase cards coming your way.

First Look at Booster Fun

March of the Machine truly is a battle for the Multiverse, and opening a pack should feel like you're catching visions of planes from all over. To that end, we've included both characters from around the Multiverse and revisited borders and special treatments from past sets.

First up is Multiverse Legends, a non-Standard-legal bonus sheet like the Mystical Archive from Strixhaven: School of Mages or the retro artifacts of The Brothers' War. It will contain reprints of iconic characters in their homeworlds' Booster Fun treatment.

Halo Foil Atraxa, Praetor's Voice Halo Foil Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer

Plus, Multiverse Legends can also appear in a new halo foil treatment you'll just have to wait to see!

New cards are getting in on the multiversal travel as well. Characters from around the Multiverse are sporting their homeworld's jersey Booster Fun treatment from previous sets—or in some cases, getting one from a set that didn't have one at the time.

Multiverse Legends Omnath, Locus of All Multiverse Legends Thalia and The Gitrog Monster

Multiverse Legends Heliod, the Radiant Dawn
Multiverse Legends Heliod, the Warped Eclipse
Multiverse Legends Jin Gitaxias
Multiverse Legends The Great Synthesis

Planar Booster Fun

And, of course, the best one of all.

Multiverse Legends Yargle and Multani

Additionally, extended-art and borderless planeswalker cards return.

These cards are part of the March of the Machine Commander set and cannot be used to play in Prerelease events—but are a Prerelease Pack–exclusive bonus to celebrate and show more of the battle against Phyrexia in March of the Machine (and to add to or inspire your next Commander deck).



Even the Secret Lair hasn't been spared from the Phyrexian invasion and is getting in on the action. There will be three drops tied to March of the Machine, but we're just going to show you one today. Here is a look at some of the exciting cards you can expect in an upcoming Secret Lair drop:

Wheel and Deal Questing Beast Olivia Voldaren

Walking Ballista The World Tree

March of the Machine: The Aftermath

Eager to know how it all ends and what March of the Machine: The Aftermath has in store? This small set—50 cards—focuses heavily on the story, showing what happens after the events of March of the Machine. Which characters live, which ones get a happily ever after, and which ones don't live to see the aftermath themselves.

This is a set for those invested in the story, the characters, and what comes next. March of the Machine: The Aftermath is a set of 50 new Standard-legal cards sold in five-card boosters. When we say Magic is going to change forever, you'll see those changes on these cards and in the story.

Story for March of the Machine: The Aftermath will kick off May 1, and previews will run May 2–3.

In the meantime, hang on to the edge of your seat, because the Phyrexian machine is on the march—and no corner of the Multiverse is safe.

March of the Machine will hit stores worldwide April 21, 2023. Preorder today from your local game store, online retailers like Amazon, and elsewhere Magic is sold.
