Review and Decks



Alchemy: The Brothers War continues on with the themes from its parent expansion:

  • Unearth: This returning mechanic lets you pay a creature’s Unearth cost from the graveyard and have it return to the battlefield with haste until end of turn.
  • Prototype: Artifact creatures with the Prototype ability let you play them with smaller power and toughness for a discount. They keep their abilities.
  • Powerstones: Powerstones are artifact tokens that tap for one colorless mana but can’t be used to cast non-artifact spells.

Alchemy’s digital-only mechanics:

  • Conjure: Creates cards out of thin air as a digital object that acts just like a normal card would (as compared to tokens).
  • Seek: Cards with this mechanic will have the game randomly choose a card from the library that meets the criteria specified on the card and put it in to your hand.
  • Perpetual: Permanently changes a card’s properties, whether they are in exile, graveyard, hand, or battlefield.
  • Spellbook: Conjure one from among three randomly selected (draft) from a card’s Spellbook.
  • Intensity: Cards with intensity will start with their intensity at a certain value, and the card’s text will include mechanics for perpetually increasing or decreasing its intensity as the game goes on.
  • Boon: Boon is a way to represent delayed triggers, similar to an emblem, but once they trigger, they disappear.
