Prepare for a Momentous Warhammer Crossover With Five Exclusive Magic: The Gathering Card Reveals
The world’s greatest miniatures and the world’s best card game join forces this October, as Warhammer 40,000 comes to Magic: The Gathering in this groundbreaking Universes Beyond collaboration. Your favourite characters do battle as Magic cards with lavish new artwork, and five cards make their exclusive debut here today.
The set features four 100-card ‘Commander’ decks each led by a powerful hero of their faction, from Inquisitor Greyfax and Abaddon the Despoiler to the Swarmlord and Szarekh the Silent King. We’re only a month away from release day on the 7th of October, so it’s high time we had a look at some of the other legends joining the roster.
No muster of Imperial heroes would be complete without the Chapter Master of the Ultramarines. His titanic strength and keen tactical acumen stride proudly from the pages of Codex: Space Marines, with some heroic new artwork flush with the grit and fortitude that safeguarded Vigilus… for a time.
Be’lakor, the Dark Master
The infamous Daemon* Prince Be’lakor loathes being overshadowed by other servants of Chaos, and takes the spotlight from Abaddon with some powerful art to match his awe-inspiring model.
Imotekh the Stormlord
Imotekh is the most influential Necron Overlord after the Silent King himself, feared as much by his own ambitious subordinates as his enemies. Every last scarab of the Sautekh Dynasty is his to control, and he wields his power with ruthless efficiency.
Magus Lucea Kane
The Genestealer Cults rise for their Day of Ascension and join their Star Children idols – as they call the ravenous Tyranids – led by a fearsome psychic Magus. The revolution may not be televised, but it has some fantastic art nonetheless.
A rogues’ gallery of your favourite Warhammer 40,000 characters are featured in these decks, and they’re joined by many of the classic tabletop units you know and love. Here’s a particularly nasty one to whet your appetite and hurt your ears…
This Universes Beyond crossover involved substantial input from the Warhammer 40,000 design studio, ensuring every last detail matched the Warhammer hobby you know and love. After such a huge undertaking, the designers recently got together to talk about how they made the crossover happen – with a guest appearance from our very own Wade.
Magic: The Gathering Universes Beyond – Warhammer 40,000 is released on the 7th of October with four 100-card Commander decks, followed by three Secret Lair releases** later that month. Sign up to our newsletter today and get all of the latest news delivered straight to your inbox.
