The highest-profile murder needs the highest-profile detective. Uncover clues and follow leads to solve the mystery as Ravnica's greatest detective dives into the dizzying depths of intrigue with Murders at Karlov Manor.
Alquist Proft and the Ravnican Agency of Magicological Investigations need to uncover a murderer. With a string of murders (and attempted murders) across Ravnica, the race is on to uncover who's next—and who's behind it all.
The team working the case expands as Kaya (and her skills with spirits) and Kellan (continuing from his adventures across Eldraine and Ixalan) join Proft to solve the plane-wide mystery.
With all eyes looking at evidence, there's no shortage of high-profile citizens to debrief for any clues they can offer.
Proft, Kaya, Kellan, and more have their work cut out for them—can they solve the highest-profile case on Ravnica? We'll find out together as Murders at Karlov Manor releases globally on February 9, 2024!
A Puzzling Twist
As we follow Proft and company across Ravnica, players can solve a mystery all their own. Across Murders at Karlov Manor cards and products, you, too, can uncover clues to something bigger—with a final reward for the most assiduous of sleuths out there.
If solving a puzzle is for you, rest assured we won't give you any clues, but we do have one hint to offer first: you will begin your Murders at Karlov Manor puzzle journey with Prerelease events kicking off on February 2, 2024! (Find your local game store to be ready.)
The Story of a Most Challenging Case
There's been a murder—and it's a far grander conspiracy than it first looks. The first episode of the Murders at Karlov Manor story is available now, and it sets the stage for Proft's biggest case yet.
Where the case leads—and who's responsible for it all—is a journey that you can follow along as we continue publishing the story starting January 8, 2024.
