Dominaria United Spoilers: Everything We Know So Far

Here you’ll find all Dominaria United spoilers (once they become available). Additionally, you’ll get to know all the information, predictions and tidbits, currently available about the set

What’s Dominaria United About?

Dominaria United marks the start of MTG’s 30th anniversary. A big number of MTG sets were on Dominaria, especially in the early years of this amazing game. As such, it’s the perfect place to start a big celebration of it.

There’s a lot of vanilla Magic experience on this plane, which always makes it a popular plane to return to. Not much is known about the Dominaria United story-line, except that we’ll be meeting some familiar heroes and villains.

We speculate that Dominaria might be united against a specific enemy, but more about that in the Predictions section.

Dominaria United Spoilers

Once that Dominaria United spoilers start, you’ll be able to find them here. So far, no Dominaria United cards have been previewed, but there are some wild predictions and speculations about the new Dominaria set.

Dominaria United Product List

As we’ve come to expect there are multiple different boosters to choose from. Let’s take a look:

Draft Boosters

Dominaria United Draft Booster Box

Draft boosters are best for, well, drafting. If you’ll want to draft Dominaria United in paper, you’ll certainly want to get this booster box. It comes with 36 packs, which is enough for an 8-player draft, with 12 boosters remaining for prizes. You could also do three 4-player drafts, as you need three packs per player.

Set Boosters

Set boosters are meant for players who want to simply crack the packs, and possibly get some exciting versions of a card, but don’t want to spend too much, on let’s say Collector boosters.

Speaking of Collector boosters, these are the priciest of the bunch. However, that’s for a good reason. These are the boosters that have multiple rares and all the cards in these boosters are either foil, or the have an alternate art.

Each set has some distinct art styles, and it should be fun to see what Dominaria United has in store for us.

Dominaria United Predictions

Here are some predictions that might or might not come true with Dominaria United.

Return of Sagas

Let’s start with some milder ones first. Sagas premiered with the Dominaria set back in 2018. It was a popular mechanic, which came back many times, most recently with Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty.

History of Benalia Best Cards for Knight Tribal MTG

It would be a great mechanic to come back with Dominaria United, as the set could also offer some support for Sagas from Kamigawa.

Iconic Dominaria Characters

Whenever we return to a plane, we’re usually met with some of the characters that we previously met on that plane. If that doesn’t happen, players get upset when their favorite is left out. So it highly likely that WIzards will try to include at least some of the following characters:

Of course, they’ll most likely have brand-new cards, although reprints aren’t out of the question, as we saw with Thalia, Guardian of Thraben in Crimson Vow.

Dominaria United Against Phyrexians

So, Dominaria is apparently united. But united against who or what? Well, the biggest threat in the multiverse lately have been the Phyrexians. Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider was seen on Kaldheim, and other Praetors might be on other planes.

Karn has been fighting against them for quite a while, and with Dominaria being the only plane that successfully defended against Phyrexian invasion, it’s the perfect place for reinforcements.

While we don’t expect a full-on Phyrexian attack in Dominaria United, there might be a gathering of allies and weapons that could help defeat the Phyrexians in one of the 2023 MTG sets.

Where’s Yargle?

However, that’s not the most important part of Dominaria. The big question is: “Will Yargle, Glutton of Urborg return in Dominaria United?”

Yargle Returns Dominaria United Spoilers

Players who closely follow the MTG lore surely know that Yargle was defeated by Muldrotha, the Gravetide. However, nowhere in the Dominaria story, Yargle’s death is specifically stated. Instead, there’s the following paragraph:

Raff dragged himself up on the rail. “I’d feel sorry for Yargle, if it hadn’t tried to eat our ship,” he gasped.

“I don’t feel sorry at all,” Jhoira said. She was certain she was watching Yargle get exactly what was coming to it.

Return to Dominaria: Episode 12 (Martha Wells)

As we know from various books, series and movies, if someone isn’t specifically shown dead (or even then), it probably means that they aren’t truly dead. So, fingers crossed for Yargle coming back in some shape or form.

Anyway, that’s it for our predictions, if you have some of yours, let us know in the comments below.
