AFR Spoiler Season Schedule and MaRo’s Set Teaser

Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms

Things are starting to heat up around the upcoming set Adventures of the Forgotten Realms, and Wizards of the Coast has just revealed the full spoiler season schedule! Official spoilers will kick off with a few special previews tomorrow, June 24, and regular daily previews begin on June 29. The full schedule is long, so please check down at the bottom of the page for details.

Additionally, Magic’s head designer Mark Rosewater typically gives us a special teaser for each new set before previews begin with some tidbits about unique or interesting things that the set includes. MaRo published his teaser for Adventures in the Forgotten Realm this morning, and as always there’s some very interesting stuff:

Maro’s Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Teaser

Before previews for Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms officially begin, I thought it would be fun to do another of my Duelist-style teasers where I give tiny hints of things to come. Note that I’m only giving you partial information.

First up, here are some things you can expect:

• a new enchantment subtype

• a card granting -11/-11

• a creature with a death trigger that make an equipment token

• a legendary creature that makes a legendary Hamster creature token

• something only seen previously in Un-sets comes to black border

• an artifact that’s a musical instrument that creates harmony counters

• a card that can keep your opponent from winning the game

• an ability that cares about attacking with a certain amount of power of creatures

• cards that let you decide where the story goes

• a card that creates a legendary creature token named Vecna

Next, here are some rules text that will be showing up on cards:

• “Enchanted permanent is a Treasure artifact”

• “Ward – discard a card.”

• “Exchange your hand and library”

• “Skeletons, Vampires and Zombies”

• “Spend this mana only to cast Dragon spells or activate abilities of Dragons.”

• “for each different mana value among nonland cards in your graveyard.”

• “Then if you have fewer than three cards in hand, draw cards equal to the difference.”

• “Whenever you cast a creature spell that doesn’t share a creature type with a creature you control or a creature card in your graveyard,”

• “You may cast [THIS CREATURE’S NAME] from your graveyard if a creature not named [THIS CREATURE’S NAME] died this turn.”

• “When its power become 20 this way,”

Finally, here are some card type lines in the set:

• Creature – Dwarf Citizen

• Creature – Tiefling Wizard

• Creature – Human Elf Monk

• Creature – Elf Spider

• Creature – Gnome Warlock

• Creature – Halfling Rogue

• Creature – Bird Bear

• Legendary Creature – Dragon Knight

• Legendary Creature – Devil God

• Legendary Creature – Beholder

There are certainly some exciting things coming in Adventures in the Forgotten Realm, and we can’t wait to see what the full set looks like. We will be keeping a close eye on spoilers as they are previewed to bring them to you as quickly as possible, so make sure to keep an eye on our AFR spoilers page and watch out for our daily roundups.

In the meantime, full details from Wizards about the preview season and schedule are posted below:

Where to Find Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Previews

It’s time for Adventures in the Forgotten Realms previews! To help our readers and preview seekers, we’ve created this handy guide to preview season—and have a few highlights to share upfront!

This page will help you follow along with everything coming by giving you the outlets we have planned on each day. The goal is to help you find what you’re looking for every day and avoid engaging in previews if you so choose.

We have a few previews appearing more frequently in Magic video spaces this time around that you’ll want to know about, too:

  • Gavin Verhey’s Good Morning Magic videos will feature a new preview card each day, June 29 through July 2.
  • On our official Magic: The Gathering YouTube channel, we’re debuting a series of videos for Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. These videos preview new cards and star some familiar faces that Dungeons & Dragons and Magic fans will recognize. You will discover a new video released each day from June 29 through July 2 and a final video on July 5.

Below, you’ll find a list of dates and outlets previewing cards. Once the previews are live, we’ll update this article so that you can easily find them. If the link simply goes to the front of a website or social media site, that means they probably haven’t previewed the card yet.

And if you just want to see all the cards that have been officially previewed in one place, you can always check out our Card Image Gallery and our Variant Card Image Gallery. Note that the CIGs are updated every morning, so they contain all cards previewed the previous day (and earlier), but not the day of.

For the most up-to-date listings, bookmark this page and check back regularly for all the latest previews from Adventures in the Forgotten Realms!

    So we have Minsc basically confirmed, what else can we parse from MaRo’s teaser? Maybe something with a d20 from the UN sets?

    • Tripp says:

      I think the d20 guess is astute. It might combine with the other text that says “when its power becomes 20 this way…”. Maybe it’s some kind of pump spell that gives a creature plus d20 power, and if its power is 20, it also gets trample.

      The d20 would also combine well with fight spells, simulating combat it D&D. The creature’s mana cost could be the armor class, with some additional effects for critical hits and misses.
