News Round Up: Week of March 28

Spoiler season for Strixhaven: School of Mages was in full swing this week. After a whirlwind we now have the complete list of all cards in the main set, the Mystical Archive, and the Japanese Mystical Archive. The week was not without some surprises, however. The Mystical Archive was the subject of two pieces of interest this week. First, the art from the Mystical Archive Crux of Fate appears to be lifted from fan art and previous Magic art. As a result, Wizards of the Coast has suspended their working relationship with Jason Felix for the time being. Second, the Japanese versions of Ephemerate and Memory Lapse had their art switched. As a result, the digital versions of these cards will reflect their physical art.

That isn’t all. Due to production delays, Australia, Thailand, and New Zealand will see their Prerelease events combined with release events on April 23.  Additionally, Draft Boosters and Japanese language Set Boosters will be delayed in some parts of Canada and the United States.

Finally, the week saw Arne Huschenbeth win the Kaldheim Championship. Piloting Dimir Rogues in Standard and Orzhov Auras in Historic, Huschenbeth qualified as a Challenger. His win finish has put Huschenbeth in position to battle for a League seat next season.
