Speculation: Brawl

Posted: March 21, 2018

Wizards have revealed the Buy-a-box Promo for Dominaria today. Firesong and Sunspeaker are the new Boros Legendary we’ll be getting if we purchase Dominaria booster box. And while the fearsome minotaur warriors aren’t too exciting on their own, the news they brought sure is.

At the very end of the article you can find here, Blake Rasmussen says: R&D specifically designed this card to be Dominaria’s Buy-a-Box promo. The goal was to give something cool to casual and Commander players, yes, but we’re especially excited about its implications for Brawl.

What is Brawl? Well, Gavin Verhey is going to tell you all about it tomorrow here on DailyMTG, but the short version is that it’s a Commander variant that uses only Standard-legal cards. It’s a ton of fun, it’s been one of the most popular “for fun” formats at Wizards of the Coast this past year, and we’re introducing it with Dominaria.

Now, one can not go without speculating the format is designed specifically for MTG Arena, as it’s a perfect compromise between letting the MTGA players enjoy this incredible casual format, while keeping the big boy version MTGO client exclusive. It also makes me optimistic we’ll see Amonkhet+ eternal format in MTGA at some point.
