The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-Earth Leaks – Foil Sheet Found in Garbage

Magic: The Gathering recently made headlines as pallets of Modern Horizons 2 cards were found at a local city landfill, estimated to be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars:

Well, the excitement doesn’t stop there as someone has purportedly reported that they found some foil sheets of the upcoming Universes Beyond set The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-Earth in the “garbage” on reddit.

The expansion is slated for release to MTG Arena on June 20, 2023 as a direct import from the tabletop version with no Alchemy rebalances and going straight into the Alchemy and Historic formats.

Interestingly enough, they have been found in different languages so the translations by the commenters on reddit are also provided below. While we cannot confirm that these are real, it’s always interesting to speculate!

Before you view the cards, remember: These are unofficial, unconfirmed leaks from a third party source so view at your own risk!

Gollum the Conspirator

Gollum the Conspirator
  • Legendary Creature ~ Halfling Horror
  • Whenever Gollum the Conspirator attacks, look at the top two cards of your library, put them back in any order, then choose land or nonland. Either opponent guesses whether the top card of your library is of the chosen type. Reveal the card. If it guesses right, Gollum is removed from combat. If not, you draw a card and Gollum can’t be blocked this turn.

  1. The typeline for Aragorn + Arwen is probably incorrect, while that is a possible translation I think they’re more likely to be “Human Elf Noble”
