Phyrexia: All Will Be launches in February, but Wizards of the Coast has just promised our first look at Magic: the Gathering's upcoming expansion will come as early as next week.
As noted by the official Magic Twitter account, Phyrexia: All Will Be One will have its first look starting on Tuesday, December 13 at 10 AM PT. As a result of this announcement, Dominaria Remastered will begin its previews starting at 10 AM tomorrow morning. That'll be nearly 100 cards from all throughout Dominaria's history, all of which will be placed on DailyMTG on December 7.
The first full set of 2023, Phyrexia: All Will Be One brings us back to New Phyrexia after the events of Dominated United and the flashbacks of The Brothers' War. Elesh Norn, the Mother of Machines herself, is confirmed to be returning in a set that's described as "pretty dark." Expect some heavy body horror themes in this Phyrexia-focused set.
The last we heard from New Phyrexia was in the expansion of the same name. The five Praetors (minus one) have joined forces under Norn and now plan to invade the rest of the Multiverse thanks to the meddling of Tezzeret, who brought the Planar Bridge to the Phyrexian's grasp. Now with Karn's head and the Machine Legion, Phyrexia's plans for a multiverse-wide invasion are nearly complete.
Phyrexia: All Will Be One is launching February 23 and will contain new Universes Within cards–those being the unique Universe Beyond cards that have been reprinted without the crossover theme to be more in line with Magic's ongoing story. There's a 25 percent chance for a card to be from The List in each booster, and of those cards, a chance for one of them to be a Universes Within card. Fans suspect that the reprinted cards will be from The Walking Dead's secret lair, as those are getting pretty old and Magic chief designer Mark Rosewater has hinted at those cards returning in some form.
