Set Mechanics

The set introduces some brand new mechanics that fits well with the set’s fairy tale them. Read more about the new mechanics in more detail here!


Food is an artifact subtype, represented by Food Tokens or other artifacts that have the type “Food”. There are cards in the set that generates Food tokens as well as cards that make use of Food cards.



These are cards that allow you to either cast the creature or the Adventure portion of the card from your hand, which can be either instant or sorcery. If you cast it as an Adventure, it doesn’t go to the graveyard – the creature goes on an “adventure” into the exile zone.


Cards with Adamant have additional or replacement effects if at least three of the same colored mana is used to cast the spell.
