The long-awaited Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons and Dragons crossover is here and you can play the new set for free on MtG Arena.

Adventures in the Forgotten Realms, the latest Magic: The Gathering set is officially available on MTG Arena on PC, Mac, iOS and Android. The set introduces 327 cards and is the first crossover set that allows players to experience the world of Dungeons & Dragons with Magic: the Gathering. It introduces flavourful new mechanics, unique types of treatments for the card visual designs and lets players explore one of their favourite worlds in a totally different context for the first time ever.

The set is heralded by iconic Dungeons & Dragons creatures and characters like the legendary god of dragons Tiamat, Gelatinous Cubes or the iconic hero Drizzt Do’Urden. It brings three brand new mechanics that capture the Dungeons & Dragons experience in full:

  • Venture into the Dungeon
    Allows players to explore three iconic dungeons; The Tomb Of Annihilation, Lost Mines of Phandelver, and Dungeon of the Mad Mage, triggering a new ability each time they do.
  • Class Enchantments
    A new type of enchantment that lets players take on class abilities, providing a resource that can activate on the trigger or stay through the game.
  • Roll A D20
    What Dungeons & Dragons adaptation doesn’t include Dice Rolling? Many cards in Adventures in the Forgotten Realms will ask players to roll a twenty-sided dice, with better results the better the roll.

Adventures in the Forgotten Realms also introduces two new ways to collect cards. Rulebook cards, inspired by early Monster Manual art, captures the feeling of discovery and mystery that those original books conveyed to players. Players will also be able to see land cards in the style of classic D&D adventure modules, bringing back a classic art style that many players both love and rever.
