We’ve bought the unique reveal of the primary playing cards from Magic: The Gathering’s subsequent Universes Beyond crossover set: The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-Earth.
Tom reveals off The One Ring and Gandalf the Grey, in addition to the brand new showcase ring remedy and artwork for Gandalf the White, all of which will likely be a part of this draftable set that’s authorized in MTG’s Modern format.
More reveals will likely be taking place on Wizards of the Coast’s WeeklyMTG livestream at 10am PT on March 14th.

It's ruxen34 all over again.
They seriously made Gandalf black
Gandalf is a servant of the secret fire of creation through iluvatar, and wielder of the Flame of Anor, his magic ring. Gandalf also has an affinity for nature and the power of healing. The balrog is a wielder of dark fire. Gandalf could be blue/red, white/red and/or green/white. The balrog should be black/red.
Mirkwood is corrupted as of the Lord of the rings, so it being a forest is confusing.
How isn't the whole fellowship just Harlem Globetrotters in cosplay??? Getting weak on the wokeness you airhead card designers 😮😮😮
look forward to this
World’s most expensive toilet wipes.
I'm not fully impressed, and I'm kind of pissed the preview wasn't given to a MTG content creator instead of IGN. It's pretty shitty
really exited to get these card, im already researching which landfills WOTC dumps them
why is Gandalf so off-flavor here
Love the lands but everything being so green may create issues like the Innistrad black and white lands
Whatever design, powerlevel and chase cards they put in this set, i'm not touching it when pre-orders are 210$US for a set booster box or 440$ for a Collector Box… double what it costs for a Standard Magic set like Phyrexia:All Will Be One. And this is coming from someone who was a huge LOTR fan when teenager. These prices are absurd and not inclusive.
ERROR ERROR, script wrote wrong. these are not modern playable cards.
“The more you tap, the more you draw, but also the more life you loose”
Sheoldred: You misspelled gain.
Aragorn went reverse Michael Jackson
Black Aragorn though 😂
Immediate thoughts on the One Ring is that it and Sheoldred would play well together i.e. the life loss is completely neutralized unless your life is too low to survive before Sheoldred's life gain kicks in.
is Frodo going to be a black trans woman of color?
Will WotC print a Gandalf, Compleated card?
My one wish for this set was for Gandalf to be a 2 sided card who could make a decent commander. So disappointed.
You know wotc trying to push the product when they give a video game centric channel the previews over an actual mtg content creator.
Go away WoTC.
Noo Gandalf should be a trans disabled Asian woman WotC are such bigots
Really thought IGN would’ve got the memo to hang up on Wizards after Magic 30.
Excited for this
Aragorn is black.
disappointed with these lands
Tom bombardilo better be in this set
Love MTG and Tolkien, but this was very underwhelming.
Gandal should have been white mana. At leat white/blue
really great work on this vid, Tom. loved the presentation.
What‘s up with all the Basketball people in a tale based on European folklore?
This "one ring" is lame if there was ever a time to go overboard on a card this is it. Make three cards, The one ring, Mt Doom, and Frodo. If you have all 3 you win the game.. it should give shroud/indestructible when equipped to a non-commander, legendary or plains walker and life drain the equipped make the ring inexpensive to equip, expensive to unequip). If a commander is equipped (cannot unequip) take control of all other commanders but you lose the game in X turns. There are so many ways they could have gone with this (Sauron has the ability to control any creature that equips the one ring)
Why are we seeing commander exclusive cards (Triangle at the bottom) being previewed in a set that is aimed directly at modern?
Card draw for life, it's a Modern legal Sylvan Library and not restrictive to Green. Not to mention Master Transmuter goes hand in hand with its downside for Artifact decks.
If Wizards really wanted to immerse players and play tribute to Tolkien's work they wouldn't have race swapped characters.
Black Aragorn , trans Boromir , pansexual Gimli and Witch-queen of Angmar cant wait .
one ring should've had flash, been 2 or 3 mana
Oof not impressed and at its high price. Hopefully the set has more/better to come.
Lands looked awful, maybe foil version looks better
