Magic Duels: Origins Trailer Reveals New Mechanic


A new trailer for Magic Duels: Origins has been released. In it we get a look at the gameplay of the latest edition of Duels.

Two red cards were revealed in the trailer. The first, Chandra's Ignition, costs 3RR for a rare sorcery. It reads "Target creature you control deals damage equal to it's power to each other creature and each opponent."

The second card is Ravaging Blaze costed at XRR. The instant has "Ravaging Blaze deals X damage to target creature. However, it also has a new ability word in Spell Mastery. The ability reads: "Spell Mastery - if there are two or more instant and/or sorcery cards in your graveyard, Ravaging Blaze deals X damage to that creature's controller."

Spell Mastery seems to be an ability that echoes the flavor of our main Planeswalkers gaining strength over time. Spells in the graveyard indicate a "learning as you go" method of growth. It will be interesting to see how this ability manifests on other cards.

Magic Duels: Origins is scheduled to be released in July.
