Like other cards of the same style, modals have two images, but they do not transform. When being placed in a match, it is up to the player to choose which face to use.

Inspired by RPGs, this novelty works with specific types of creature: cleric, rogue, warrior and wizard. The group may have zero to four creatures present, and the abilities will take this number into account, with some cards offering bonuses if the maximum value is reached.

Rotation

Prior to the update, rotation occurred in Standard mode on September 17th at Magic: The Gathering Arena, with the following collections that can be used only in the History: Basic Collection 2020, Guilds of Ravnica, Loyalty in Ravnica and War of the Spark.

In addition, as a form of renewal gift, players received 10 rare or mythical cards from the new Standard, as well as Mastery rewards at various levels.

Card banned

Since the launch of Rebirth of Zendikar, thousands of matches have already been played in MTG Arena, and in analyzing the data obtained, Wizards of the Coast decided to ban the card Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath. The decision was made to keep the game competitive, attractive and balanced so that everyone can make the most of it.

Tips

With the rotation and the ban of Uro, it is likely that many of your decks can no longer be used in Standard mode. But do not worry! We have some tips that can help you achieve many victories with the new collection.

Dimir Rogues

One of the most used decks in the Arena at the moment, makes good use of the Triturar / Mill mechanics (mainly due to the skill of the Thieves ‘Guild Enforcer / Enforcer of the Thieves’ Guild, that every time a rogue enters the battlefield under his control, the opponent grinds two cards), however, the focus of the deck is not only that, having good answers for various situations.

Temur Adventures

Temur Adventures abuses the ability of the Lucky Clover / Lucky Clover (every time you cast an instant spell or adventure spell, copy that spell. You can choose new targets to copy), for example, when the enemy has strong creatures in play, you can use the Brazen Borrower to return them to the opponent’s hand, or even the Bonecrusher Giant to do damage.

4 Colors Ramp

Rampar’s mechanics are one of the most used in MTG Arena, even before the rotation, and now with the additions of Lotus Cobra / Lotus Cobra (whenever a terrain enters the battlefield under your control, add a mana of any color) and Omnath, Locus of Creation / Omnath, Locus of Creation, the deck got even stronger.

Here, the secret is to benefit from lowering as much mana as possible and abusing the effects of the creatures, and if everything goes wrong, you will have enough to lower the Ugin, the Spirit Dragon / Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, and exile all permanents at the cost you set.

For those who want to check out more suggestions, take a look at the websites MTGGoldfish, AetherHub and MTGArena.Pro, and if you are in doubt because the lists are English, just stop by the LigaMagic website and get the card you are looking for, as it has Portuguese versions.
