The world of Dominaria is in trouble! All the Magic: The Gathering card game duels, and the meddling of powerful wizards like Mishra and Urza, has torn the place apart and even messed up time! The new Magic set, Time Warp, brings weird new time magic, as well as ancient creatures and spells, to your duels. Gary reviews the new powers, cards and Theme Decks in Time Warp. Check it out!

Warped Old and New Powers in the Time Spiral Set

Wow, this set is mind-boggling! It doesn't just have 301 new cards, it also has 121 cards from older sets and it's packed with old powers on top of the new powers! It also brings two kinds of old creatures back to duels. Here's the 411 on them.
Old Creatures:
  • Slivers - These multicolored creatures share abilities and power up like crazy!
  • Thallids - These fungus monsters constantly grow and unleash weird fungus powers.
  • Old Powers

  • Flanking - Agile warriors that know how to weaken opponents.
  • Shadow - Ghost creatures that can only be stopped by other ghosts!
  • Rampage - The more opponents, the stronger the creature gets.
  • Madness - If someone makes you discard it, you can play it for cheap!
  • Flashback - Play this card a second time from your Graveyard.
  • Echo - This card is cheap, but you have to pay the cost twice.
  • Kicker - Pay extra to activate extra powers when you play the card.
  • Storm - Get an extra copy of this card for each spell that has been played this turn!
  • Morph - Play this card face-down for cheap, then pay more to turn it face-up later.
  • New Powers

  • Flash - Surprise! These cards can be played anytime.
  • Suspend - You can cast these cards for a cheaper cost, but then they won't arrive for several turns.
  • Split Second - These spells are so fast your opponent can't react to them!
  • Time Spiral Theme Deck Reviews

    With all the warped stuff going on, different groups are rising up to battle to save, or destroy, the world of Dominaria! The new Theme Decks let you command the Slivers or Thallids, rally the humans to save the day or unleash powerful time magic! Gary's testing them out and will have reviews soon!
  • Fun With Fungus - Breed an army of gross fungus monsters and swarm your opponent.
  • Hope's Crusaders - Lead an army of heroes to victory.
  • Reality Fracture - Warp time and space to win!
  • Sliver Evolution - Combine abilities to win with the vicious slivers!
  • Magic: The Gathering: Time Spiral
