Wizards of the Coast showed off details for the Magic: The Gathering Universes Beyond Doctor Who releasing later this month. Everything is packed with Doctor Who lore for any fan of the intrepid Doctor.
Blast From the Past
The first deck they showed off was Blast from the Past. This deck is filled with the early history of the show.
In 1963, the Doctor first appeared to audiences around the world. This deck honors those early years of Doctor Who™, spanning the show’s run from 1963 to 1989. Blast from the Past, a green-white-blue deck, is led by the Fourth Doctor. But he’s not alone. The Doctor travels with their companions, brought to Magic with the Doctor’s companion mechanic.
The second deck is Timey-Wimey featuring the ninth, tenth, and eleventh Doctors. This deck focuses on manipulating various time counters for maximum effect. With Timey-Wimey you will be trying to keep your Vanishing creatures around longer and your Suspend cards counting down faster than your opponents anticipate.
Timey-Wimey is a deck all about the big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff that is time. This deck is run by the Tenth Doctor and his companion Rose Tyler. The two give this blue-red-white deck a theme of time manipulation, namely through the mechanic of time travel.
The third deck is Paradox Power, with this deck you are rewarded for casting a spell anywhere but your hand by casting spells from exile, adventure spells, cascade, retrace and more.
In Paradox Power, the wild nature of time is on full display as spells fly from all directions! In this green-blue-red deck, you can expect the unexpected when the Thirteenth Doctor and Yasmin Khan arrive. With the Twelfth Doctor and the Thirteenth Doctor being at the deck’s core, the paradox mechanic is working overdrive to create the exciting plays Commander is known for!
Masters of Evil
Wizards has not forgotten the many memorable villains across Doctor Who’s history. With Masters of Evil you will be able to be the villain at the table. With this deck you will be rewarded for attacking every player at the table. On top of that you will be able to force your opponents to make “a villainous choice,” where either is always bad for them.
Wherever the Doctor does good, there is sure to be a villain doing evil. This blue-black-red deck is all about the terrifying foes the Doctor has combated over their many journeys through time. While several characters from across Doctor Who™ make an appearance, the deck focuses on the Daleks, the Cybermen, and the many incarnations of the Master. This is embodied with the villainous choice mechanic, seen here on Davros, Dalek Creator.
Doctor Who Secret Lair
Wizards has also created a special Secret Lair celebrating Doctor Who featuring five angel cards and five Dalek dual lands.
Doctor Who Collector Boosters
Doctor Who collector boosters will also be available featuring foil and extended art versions. A new TARDIS showcase frame can also be found inside the collector boosters.
