The final day of preview season for Adventures in the Forgotten Realms is finally upon us! This will be the last installment of the Daily Roundup for this set, and as usual we’ve compiled all of the spoilers from today 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.
