Spoiler season is practically sacred for Magic: The Gathering fans. Every few months, in the leadup to a new set release, players get a chance to preview the cards coming to the game and formulate new strategies and decks. Officially, the spoiler season was supposed to start on August 15 but leakers revealed several cards a few days early. Here are the details on the Wilds of Eldraine leaks.
Wilds of Eldraine is set in the titular fairy tale plane, currently afflicted with a curse of magical slumber. Over the last few weeks, Wizards of the Coast has been drip feeding new information about the set, including story details and hints at card text.
MTG Wilds of Eldraine Leaks Ahead of Set Debut
First spoiled on Reddit, a batch of leaks arrived on Aug. 12 with eight images containing the names and card texts of many cards from Wilds of Eldraine. Additional leaks followed, with photographs of eight more cards appearing on Reddit on Aug. 13. These leaks are currently unconfirmed by official sources but given the accuracy of previous leaks look to be legitimate.
Notable details from the leaks include new mechanics like Bargain, which allows players to sacrifice specific permanents as they cast spells for additional effects, and Roles, which are attached to creatures to make them weaker or stronger.
Returning mechanics include Sagas and Adventures, which are popular among players thanks to being both flavorful and powerful.
