March of the Machine Out Tomorrow!
The end is nigh!
Realmbreaker, Elesh Norn's twisted version of Kaldheim's World Tree, has breached the planes, and Phyrexian forces are swarming. Tomorrow, its loathsome limbs deposit March of the Machine in MTG Arena, bringing new cards, new mechanics, new Store offerings, and new March of the Machine Sealed and Draft events—including the Standard Metagame Challenge happening this weekend!
New Store Offerings
We have new goodies coming to the Store tomorrow alongside the release of March of the Machine:
- Full-art lands
