Phyrexia: All Will Be One on Magic Online

Posted on Jan 26, 2023

We hope that 2023 is off to a great start for you! Magic Online’s first main course for the year is Phyrexia: All Will Be One (known by its set code ONE) with events kicking off on Tuesday, February 7!

Due to the late change in ONE’s release date, the downtime to add this set to MTGO will take place today, January 26 at 9 a.m. Pacific time (17:00 UTC). Vintage Cube events also end at today’s downtime – we hope you have enjoyed those.

But First, An Appetizer ...

Between downtime and the start of ONE, we will be featuring the all-reprint set Dominaria Remastered (DMR). Magic Online will be treating that set as a cross between Cube and Standard – that is:

ONE Thing After Another

Features of the next few months include our first foray into Art Bundles – a new way to collect awesome art, the return of the Magic 30 Cube, additional Challenge events on weekends, and more …

New MTGO Art Bundles

Wizards of the Coast’s art teams have pulled out all the stops with Phyrexia: All Will Be One – a true proliferation of what’s possible with the look of a Magic card. From black-and-white Ichor Showcase to guest artists, lands to planeswalkers, this set has it all!

The Magic Online team continues to experiment with ways of getting cards what players want into their Collections. For this set, we are varying our methods.

We’ve reserved some of our favorite cycles of art from this set and are making them collectible for a limited time via the Store. The following items will go on sale February 7 at 10 a.m. PT – they will not be in Treasure Chests and will leave the Store with the release of March of the Machine in April:

These new items will be found in both the Featured tab and the new Bundles tab of the MTGO Store.

Other Showcase Art

Some groups of art will appear in Treasure Chests once ONE goes on-sale. These include:

This set is one of the first to feature all lands in boosters that use full-art or Showcase treatments. Therefore, basic lands in the normal frame will go into our new player products. Also, the regular versions of the set’s Jumpstart cards will be a new included feature of Deck Builder’s Essentials going forward.

UPDATE 2/6/23: Finally, the super-cycle of borderless, alternate-art praetors will be held back for a release later this year appear in boosters at the same rates as tabletop. Their appearance in Treasure Chests will be delayed to the next update in March.

Event Updates

We have heard plenty of feedback from players (particularly from the Asia-Pacific region) who want as much top competition as possible around the clock. To help with this, we are re-arranging the weekly schedule by upgrading two Preliminaries on Friday nights (Pacific time) to small Challenge events, plus another on Saturdays, starting this weekend:

In-Client Improvements

We have a couple quality-of-life to share with this release!


Treasure Chest Update

As a reminder, Treasure Chests will update as follows:

For full details on the changes to come, check out the Treasure Chest information page.

Commander Corner

All of the cards listed in the table below are joining MTGO with this release in the returning TC-Only slot. Due to the holidays and our team’s bandwidth, many of the cards added this time were basically free to us while coding cards for upcoming sets.

Battle for Baldur’s Gate (CLB) Other Sets
Aboleth Spawn Fiery Encore (C21)
Artificer Class Zaffai, Thunder Conductor (C21)
Captain N’ghathrod Damning Verdict (NCC)
Dig Deep  
Durnan of the Yawning Portal  
From the Catacombs  
Journey to the Lost City  
Lurking Green Dragon  

Also, the two newest Commander Decks – Corrupting Influence and Rebellion Rising – will each go on sale for $29.99 in the Store on February 7.

Magic Online Players Rewards (MOPR) Update

We are refreshing the monthly rewards players can earn via MOPR starting with the next grant on February 1st. The borderless and retro commons and uncommons from Dominaria Remastered will be the sole group of cards distributed – replacing the basic lands. Cards such as High Tide, Swords to Plowshares, and Street Wraith are available this way.

Then for the March and April grants, we will add in the Ichor Showcase commons and uncommons from Phyrexia: All Will Be One.

Phyrexia: All Will Be One Avatars

We will grant Prestige avatars from The Brothers’ War in the days following the end of that season on February 7.

Now let’s look ahead to the new set. First up is the avatar included in the New Account Starter Kit and as part of Deck Builder’s Essentials: Phyrexia: All Will Be One – it’s Kemba, Kha Enduring:

Next up are the five Treasure Chest avatars available only during this set’s run:

Lastly, we will dole out some Prestige! As usual, you get five points for each Competitive trophy you earn in Leagues and one for each Friendly trophy. At the end of the season, you'll earn every avatar for which you qualify:

Earning at least five points gets you the uncommon Vraska, Betrayal’s Sting Prestige avatar.

Earning at least 20 points nabs you the rare Koth, Fire of Resistance Prestige avatar.

Earning 40 points or more awards you with the mythic rare Nissa, Ascended Animist Prestige avatar.

Alternate Play Schedule

Here’s a look at the schedule of events coming up between now and March of the Machine. Each description mentions whether or not the Draft is Phantom – cards won’t be added to players’ collections in Phantom events. All event transitions are at 10 a.m. PT.

Odds and Ends

We’ll see you on the battlefield!
