New Event: Trick or Treat?


Trick or Treat? is a brand new PvE, Non-Coalition event with 3 different nodes. It will also give players a closer sneak preview of 3 cards from Throne of Eldraine: Gingerbrute, Fierce Witchstalker, and Tempting Witch. Not only will players get to check them out in-game, you'll also get to earn them as rewards from the event too! 

There will be 3 nodes: an Arlinn Kord specific node, a Kaya, Orzhov Usurper specific node, and a generic Planeswalker node. Both Arlinn Kord and Kaya will be available in the Vault during this time. Each node has its own special enemy and they will all feature the special event support: Trick or Treat
  • "Whenever a player matches this support's gem or destroys this support, that player goes trick or treating."
This support transforms into either a Trick effect or a Treat effect, which will be chosen from a pool of tokens (For example, "Draw a card" or "Lose 5 life.")

Check out the October Sneak Peek to see when this event will be available to play in!

Planechasing Fblthp

Even Fblthp has joined in on the festivities! During the Halloween celebration, Fblthp will have a thematic node that follows the same rules as the Trick or Treat? event.

Check out the October Sneak Peek to see when you can chase after Fblthp again!
