The world and story of Dominaria United has now been setup ahead of the expansion’s official debut during the Wizards Presents broadcast on August 18. The Building Worlds – Dominaria United video posted on the Magic: The Gathering YouTube channel hosted by Jimmy Wong, Sam from Rhystic Studies, and members of the Magic creative team, went behind the scenes on the creation of Dominaria United. With this, a whole bunch of artwork and their card names were revealed – so as we wait, let’s compile all the information together and speculate!
The artwork is displayed in chronological order in the video. Many thanks to reddit users u/MakesOnAPlane for the images and u/releasethedogs for the names and descriptions!
Depiction of Yavimaya.
An ancient relic. Card number 264.
The Elder Dragon War
Now probably the Saga card. Remember The Eldest Reborn?
Urza and Sylex
Depiction of the Golgothian Sylex, with Urza doing something to what it could be Karn’s eye? Could this be a reprint of Urza’s Ruinous Blast?
Slimefoot, the Stowaway is up to something, now probably a ramp spell similar to Farseek.
Sunbathing with Rootwalla
Another Rootwalla card to add to the mix.
Cave in the Desert
Players are speculating it could be Caves of Koilos, but judging from other obvious land names revealed below it could just be something else entirely.
A classic depiction and name of a Red/Blue dual land?
The Red/White dual land?
The White/Blue dual land?
Black/Green dual lands?
Balmor, Battlemage Captian
These may not depict any specific card.
Shanid, Sleepers Scourage
A possible White part of the rare cycle of +1/+1 granting lords in Mark Rosewater’s Dominaria United teaser.
A reprint of Balduvian Horde, with the original artwork from Masters 25.
King Darien XLVII
Could be an artifact wall similar to Crashing Drawbridge.
The Weatherseed Treaty
The Cruelty of Gix
Urza Assembles the Titans
Braid’s Frightful Return
Sheoldred, the Apocalypse
So, it appears that the Sheoldred, Insidious Conquerer leak was fake. Is she riding or grafted onto a Phyrexian Dreadnought?
It appears Benalia has fallen to the Phyrexians.
Defiler of Dreams
A powerful Phyrexian sphinx with the Mask of Yawgmoth?
A spell that possibly has Domain as teased by Mark Rosewater.
Karn, Living Legacy
We won’t be getting a Karn Liberated reprint as the name of the card is now revealed.
Danitha, Benalia’s Hope
Originally in Dominaria as Danitha Capashen, Paragon.
Braids, Arisen Nightmare
The popular legendary character makes her return. This artwork was already revealed previously.
Aron, Benalia’s Ruin
Another card depicting the fate of Benalia.
Same type of wurms shown on Crush of Wurms.
Our favorite Gruul legendary, Grand Warlord Radha is depicted here.
Already previously spoiled card:
Rith with Liberated Prime
The five Primeval Dragons could make their return, or like Darigaaz Reincarnated, just Rith alone.
Another familiar looking spell that could help ramp.
Strength of the Coalition
Depicting Lyra Dawnbringer and Multani, Yavimaya’s Avatar, this card most likely is a spell with Domain, teased by Mark Rosewater.
Stall for Time
Most likely one of those Blue effects that taps down a creature such as Charmed Sleep or Frozen Solid.
The Raven Man
A Phyrexianized, completed Balduvian.
Could be an artifact or enchantment destroying effect depicting Spiritmonger…
A Sleeper Agent being arrested.
The possible Green/White allied dual land.
Fires of Victory
Could it have an effect similar to Fires of Yavimaya?
It appears that Weatherlight is getting a reprint from the original Dominaria set.
Board the Weatherlight
Another reprint from the original Dominaria set.
Will infect and poison counters be in Dominaria United, or a brand new evergreen counter as mentioned in Mark Rosewater’s Dominaria United teaser?
Swamp art showing the Phyrexianized (completed) Weatherlight ship.
Ertai the Resurrected
Ertai, the Corrupted is back again.
An aged Liliana depicted here.
A younger Liliana, who is wearing The Chain Veil in the reflection. This could be Liliana of the Veil, the popular planeswalker reprint in Mark Rosewater’s Dominaria United teaser.
Take up the Shield
Card was already revealed:
An overgrown Cabal Stronghold. Could this be the Blue/Black dual land?
