Ever After?

You can explore the Magic: The Gathering Wilds of Eldraine story-line beginning with part one:

Wilds of Eldraine set mechanics

Three brand new mechanics are being introduced with Wilds of Eldraine with the first one being Roles. Roles are token enchantment auras that will attach to creatures just like regular auras, but a creature can only have one role from one player at a time.

Another new mechanic called Bargain makes its debut. Bargain is similar to kicker, but the optional cost is to always sacrifice an artifact, enchantment, or token.

The final new mechanic for Wilds of Eldraine is Celebration. Celebration cards will cause an additional effect if two or more nonland permanents entered the battlefield this turn.

Adventure’s return from the original Throne of Eldraine set. This well received mechanic allows cards to have multiple purposes granting flexibility on a single card. This time there are even off color adventure cards allowing for interesting deck building.

Rounding out returning mechanics are classic sagas and food tokens. Sagas being a great way to represent storytelling within Magic: The Gathering and food tokens being extra useful for Bargain cards.
