Adventures in the Forgotten Realm Spoilers: Daily Roundup for July 2, 2021

Jaded Sell-Sword art by Randy Vargas

It’s day four of preview season for Adventures in the Forgotten Realm, and today Wizards of the Coast has introduced an all-new enchantment type- Class! Classes have a small effect when first cast, but can be “leveled up” by paying additional costs similar to creatures with the level up mechanic from Rise of the Eldrazi. Several examples of Class cards were previewed today, so let’s get into it!

The purpose of the Daily Roundup is to compile all of the spoilers from each day onto one easy-to-browse page. A couple of quick reminders and then we’ll jump right in:

  • This page is a WIP and will be regularly updated throughout the day as more cards are previewed.
  • This time around, there are far too many cards to provide analysis for each here.
  • Some cards have been previewed in languages other than English with no official translation currently available. Be aware that the exact wording of cards with non-English text may or may not be perfectly accurate.
  • The regular versions of cards have been listed here when available. Special card versions (Borderless, Showcase, etc) can be viewed on our main spoilers page.

Cards have been listed alphabetically and categorized by rarity. Here are some links if you’d like to jump around the page.
