The latest Magic: The Gathering expansion set dubbed the Lost Caverns of Ixalan will be available for sale this coming 17th November 2023 in Malaysia and it’s arguably their most most memorable set to date with unique game mechanics and art that combines dinosaurs, vampire conquistadors, Aztec and Mayan themes and even cameo cards from Jurassic Park.
What are The Lost Caverns of Ixalan
The Lost Caverns of Ixalan has multiple factions vying for the treasures of an underground series of caverns called Ixalan, hence the name of the expansion with Merfolk, the Dinosaurs of the Sun Empire that combine Mayans and Aztec myths with dinosaur units, the Brazen Coalition of Pirates and the vampire conquistadors Legion of Dusk all featuring unique game mechanics per faction and for the set in general. In random set boosters, every Collector Booster and some Secret Lair drops will be a park featuring characters from Jurassic Park with 26 collaboration cards to collect including Ellie and Alan, everyone’s favourite chaotician Ian Malcolm and more..
One of the key aspects of the Lost Caverns of Ixalan expansion is exploration into the depths of the unknown and many cards feature a new Descend mechanic that kicks off when specific numbers of permanents are put into your graveyard while the Craft mechanic has you paying mana and exiling components to create better artefacts. The new Discover mechanic has a risk mechanic where players can exile cards until they find a non-land card of equal or lesser mana value to cast for free or put in their hand.
On top of Jurassic Park collaboration cards and new mechanics, the Lost Caverns of Ixalan will also feature Masters release-level reprints of powerful artefacts given new art in non-foul Box Toppers in draft, in Collector Booster boxes and Set Booster boxes.
The entire set comes in your usual Magic: The Gathering form factors including draft boosters, set boosters, collector boosters, commander decks, prerelease packs, bundles and gift bundles. Starting from today, you can check out Magic Open House events in Malaysia at WPN Premium stores for novices and newcomers to learn the game and get the exclusive Ravenous Chupacabra card while those who introduce a friend to the game get Cultivate.
