Magic: The Gathering Arena Mobile – Strixhaven: School of Mages

Strixhaven: School of Mages is available on Magic: The Gathering Arena. Introducing 275 cards, and the first card set to launch since Magic: The Gathering Arena released on mobile, Strixhaven: School of Mages is a card set focused around a multiversal wizard’s college. Players are set to join one of five colleges each named after the Elder Dragon that school represents.

For daring adventurers, Lorehold will be a likely home. Players who use magic as artistic expression will gravitate toward Prismari. Math geniuses will find like-minded students within Quandrix, while wordsmiths are destined for Silverquill. For students who are inclined to enhance or exploit nature with their magic, the final college of Witherbloom is where they’re bound to lay their roots.

Students will discover three new mechanics in Strixhaven: School of Mages:

  • Lesson

    • Allows you to either discard a card and then draw a card to improve your hand, or reveal a Lesson card from outside the game and put it in your hand.

  • Magecraft

    • An ability word that highlights triggered abilities that give you some sort of benefit whenever you cast—or copy—an instant or sorcery spell.

  • Ward

    • Triggered ability. Whenever a permanent with ward becomes the target of a spell or ability an opponent controls, counter that spell or ability unless that opponent pays whatever cost is after the word “ward.” That cost can be mana, life, or pretty much anything else that can be a cost.

Read everything on these new mechanics here. 

Strixhaven: School of Mages also introduces Mystical Archive, a collection of some of the most powerful spells ever cast in Magic: The Gathering – 63 cards from throughout Magic’s history that players will be able to introduce into their Historic and Standard decks. Mystical Archive also introduces special Japanese card styles as cosmetics for each of these cards.
