Besides these spoilers, don’t forget to also check out the Dominaria United full art basic lands.
The cards you saw above belong to the main set. However, if you decide to purchase any booster box of Dominaria United, you’ll receive a special Box Topper card. These will be characters from the Magic’s past, with brand-new, upgraded cards. In total, there will be 20 different Box Toppers.
Here’s one example of a Box Topper:
You can learn more about them, and find a full list of Dominaria United Box Toppers here.
That’s it for Maro’s Dominaria United teaser. We’re moving to some more unofficial news about this year’s autumn set.
Cards from Legends in Dominaria United
Dominaria United Collector Boosters will contain something special – cards from the Legends, one of the first MTG sets ever released. To be exact, it was the seventh Magic set ever released, back in 1994. Wizards actually opened a bunch of old Legends booster boxes, and put the cards into Dominaria United Collector Boosters.
Since they didn’t actually print these cards, this goes around the Reserved List problem. So you could potentially open a The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, which is worth at least a couple of thousand dollars on the secondary market, as of writing of this article.
Each Collector booster has a 3% chance of containing a Legends card.
Dominaria United Product List
As we’ve come to expect, there are multiple different boosters to choose from. You can take a look below, or find more in-depth information in our Dominaria United Booster Guide.
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.
Jumpstart was a product separate from the regular set releases. However, that’s about to change with Dominaria United. Each big set will now also feature Jumpstart boosters.
These boosters contain 20 cards, including multiple basic lands. The idea with them is simple. You mix two boosters together, and that’s your deck. Your opponent does the same, and you’re quickly ready to play against one another.
This product is great for casual players, who just want to play some Magic with new cards.
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.
As we’ve come to expect from the main MTG sets, we’re also getting Commander decks. This time around, there will be two precons. One will be in three colors (White, Black, and Red), while the second one will feature all five colors, which is bound to be interesting.
You can find more information about the Dominaria United Commander decks here.

Dominaria United – FAQ
Here are answers to some questions that you might have about Dominaria United. If we didn’t answer your question, let us know in the comments, and we’ll get back to you.
Yes, it does. Crimson Vow was an additional set in 2021. To keep the same amount of sets in Standard, rotation is happening earlier than usual.
It is not. However, it might be somewhat similar to a Core Set with less complex mechanics, and more vanilla MTG experience. It was confirmed on Weekly MTG, that one of the sets in 2022 will be similar to Core Set, and Dominaria United seems like a perfect fit.
Yes, it is.
Yes, there will be two Dominaria United Commander decks.
On September 1st, 2022. If you’re interested in more details, then you can find the exact time of Dominaria United release on Arena here.
Dominaria United Predictions
Here are some predictions that might or might not come true with Dominaria United. Note that most of these were made before the first spoilers started. Since then, some might already be confirmed or refuted.
Return of Priceless Treasures
An interesting thing happens if you turn the Dominaria United booster box sideways. Do you find something interesting on the side of it?
More enfranchised players might note the MTG logo from the backside of the card. Players are now wildly speculating what that could mean. Perhaps it’s time for the Priceless Treasures to make a return. The first and the only time they appeared was in the first Zendikar set back in 2009.
Priceless Treasures were rare and expensive older cards which were inserted randomly into the original print-run of Zendikar. Even cards from the Reserved List were included, since Wizards’ didn’t actually print new cards, but just put actual old cards into boosters. So it was possible, although very unlikely, to open a Black Lotus. If this were to happen again, it would be totally bonkers!
The other less exciting options is that, all the cards would be in old border. Of curse, there’s always a possible third option – we’ll just have to wait and see.
Return of Sagas
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.
However, that’s not the most important part of Dominaria. The big question is: “Will Yargle, Glutton of Urborg return in Dominaria United?”
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. If you’re a fan of lore, you should also check Dominaria United Story recap.
As per, tradition Mark Rosewater (aka Maro), the head designer for Magic: The Gathering posted some Dominaria United teasers on his Blogatog. These are just some hints about the new cards, but they often contain some very exciting news, and they do get players to speculate wildly.
So, let’s take a look at what Mark had to say, and let’s make some guesses about Dominaria United.
Returns & Reprints
One of the more exciting things was certainly the information that a popular planeswalker card gets a reprint. Based on the characters from Dominaria United story, here are our three favorite choices for a reprint:
The most likely one is probably Liliana, which wasn’t reprinted in quite a while, with some sets, like Double Masters 2022 looking like a great fit for it.
Lore enthusiast will be probably happy to learn that three of the original Weatherlight crew members are in the set.
An ability word, which didn’t start as one also make a return. This might be domain, a mechanic which rewards you for having different basic lands in play. Cards with ability like domain were first introduced in Invasion, but they only got the associated ability word in Conflux. This would also explain why one of the two Dominaria United Commander decks contains all 5 colors.
Another exciting piece of news is that we’re getting a new Lotus card! It’ll be fun to see in what way this one adds three mana to your mana pool.
Furthermore, Mark posted a few text snippets. These will appear on cards in Dominaria United, although we don’t know the full context, so they might be misleading.
- “As long as enchanted creature is legendary”
- “Enchantment creatures you control have”
- “Exile each nonland permanent with mana value 2 or less”
- “For each opponent who doesn’t, that player loses 2 life and you draw a card.”
- “If X is 3 or less”
- “Instant or sorcery card with mana value 1 or 2”
- “Pay any amount of mana.”
- “Vehicles you control have crew 1.”
- “Where X is the number of legendary creatures you control.”
- “You may exile an instant or sorcery with mana value X or less from among them.”
Besides the text snippets, we now also know that these interesting creature types will appear in Dominaria United:
- Dryad Warrior
- Elf Archer (in Red)
- Human Kor Soldier
- Phyrexian Horse
Maro also teased some creature types for legendary creatures. This means your next commander could be:
- Elemental Demon
- Elf Artificer
- Frog Beast
- Phyrexian Merfolk Wizard
- Viashino Warlock
Finally we’re wrapping up with some other exciting things that we’ll see in Dominaria United:
- a blue card with “destroy all creatures”
- a card that grants poison
- a character players have been requesting finally gets a card
- a five mana value creature that can be a 10/10
- a new evergreen counter
- a rare cycle of +1/+1 granting lords
Until next time, have fun, and may your favorite Magic character get an awesome card in Dominaria United.
