Major Theros: Beyond Death Leaks Spoils 33 Cards

Today an unexpected post from reddit user BlakedaWerewolf on the main Magic: The Gathering subreddit revealed 33 different cards from the upcoming Theros: Beyond Death, the next Magic: The Gathering expansion announced to be released to MTG Arena on January 16, 2020. Click here for the Theros: Beyond Death Spoiler section for the full card gallery. He claims that his friend found booster packs at Walgreens in Morrisville, North Carolina.

Update: Additional leaks have surfaced of the rest of the cards! There are 44 more different cards spoiled by the same source. Click here to find out more!

The story is being debated by the community at large due to its convenience of the timing of the leak, and the specific selection of cards being revealed. There are enough variety on the spoiled cards to get a good preview of the set, and what we can expect from the set. Having said that, this is one of the bigger leaks we have seen (compared to the Rowan Planeswalker Deck leaks we had).

Wizards of the Coast puts in a lot of effort to create the preview season for everyone so it is unfortunate that it had to be revealed this way and you should read the perspective from a reddit post regarding the topic of leaks. However, the silver lining is that the set previews are still about two months away so these cards will likely not be assigned to anyone anyway.

We will be reviewing the new cards tonight! In the meantime, you can discuss the set on our Discord server, forums, or simply comment below!

    I have my doubts about this leak, but if it’s real the basic lands and planeswalker art look dope as hell!

    Looks fake to me

      Pretty deep cut reference, getting Chuck Lukacs who did the art of the Hero’s Path cards to come back for the full art Elspeth.

      Only reason I call BS on this, I dont believe a full art, box topper type card is in normal packs. The full set of lands/full art versions. Doesnt add up. This was intentionally leaked by wizards.

      • Adam Parrish says:

        In regards to the “full art, box topper type card is in normal packs” Throne of Eldraine draft booster packs could yield full art planeswalker, all the other fancy things were in the Collector Packs. Not saying anything about the leak just saying full art planeswalker cards can be in regular packs going forward

    on hero of the nyxborn why is the second ability not heroic?

    • 10man says:

      The keyword “heroic” typically only buffs the creature it’s printed on. The lack of keywording could also indicate that heroic isn’t going to play a big role in the set.

      • Natepaulr says:

        Less than half of heroic self buff. They probably decided heroic is a dumb keyword.

        • David Larsen says:

          No they had a heroic commander deck that was scraped from C19 set of 4. I think they will release it later. The commander will most likely work with the key word heroic. Tenth district legionnaire has the heroic ability but no key word!

    • James says:

      Same reason why Emry isn’t “Affinity” and neither Tireless Tracker nor Evolution Sage aren’t “Landfall”

      … they’re not evergreen keywords and they didn’t want that keyword mechanic in the set…but still wanted to use the ability.

      In my opinion, they should just evergreen more…but whatever, this is fine too.
