MTG Arena Gets A Little More Hearthstone-y With Next Expansion
When Hearthstone first came out, one of my initial thoughts about it was how clever Blizzard was at incorporating effects that you couldn't do -- at least not easily -- in a physical card game. Most of these revolved around the game's randomness, which, for better or worse, defined that game. Now, Wizards of the Coast is taking a page from Blizzard's book.
Jumpstart: Historic Horizons will release on August 12 and add 782 cards to Magic: The Gathering Arena. 372 of those are new to Arena, and 31 feature three new effect keywords described as being "designed specifically for the [digital] platform": Seek lets you grab a random card from your deck that meets a certain criteria; Perpetually permanently changes the characteristics of a card; and Conjure "creates cards out of thin air."
Historic Horizons will arrive alongside a release event that runs until September 9. It costs 2,000 Gold or 400 Gems to enter, and your first two wins award a rare or mythic ICR from the set.
