The iconic Assassin’s Creed experience involves sneaking into a historically significant building, taking out a key figure, and making a daring escape. In the crossover with Magic: The Gathering, this dynamic is captured through the new Freerunning mechanic, allowing players to cast certain cards for less mana after causing damage with an assassin or commander card.

Returning mechanics like Disguise and Cloak add to the strategic depth of the game, giving players the ability to play cards face-down and reveal them at crucial moments. The concept of historic cards, including legendaries, artifacts, and sagas, is also emphasized in this crossover set, reflecting the essence of Assassin’s Creed’s historical settings.

One of the previewed cards, Desynchronization, interacts specifically with historic cards by returning nonland permanents to their owner’s hand, unless they are designated as historic. This mechanic adds a layer of strategy to gameplay, rewarding players for incorporating historic elements into their decks.

The Assassin’s Creed Universes Beyond set is set to release on July 5th, offering fans of both franchises a unique and engaging gaming experience. As the crossover between these two popular worlds unfolds, players can expect an exciting blend of historical storytelling and strategic card gameplay.

In addition to the gameplay mechanics, the creative team behind the set has put a lot of thought into the art and design of the cards. With illustrations by talented artists like Lie Setiawan, each card brings the world of Assassin’s Creed and Magic: The Gathering to life in a visually stunning way.

For fans of both franchises, the crossover set promises to be a memorable and immersive experience. Whether you’re a seasoned Magic player or a die-hard Assassin’s Creed fan, this collaboration offers something truly special for everyone to enjoy.
