Magic the Gathering (MtG) is a collectable card game for 2 or more players. Each game represents a battle between powerful wizards, known as Planeswalkers, who have the ability to travel the multiverse. Players will cast spells, summon creatures, and deploy artifacts to overcome their opponents. Typically, a player will win by reducing their opponent’s starting life points to zero, but there are other paths to victory.
To play the game, each player will need a deck of at least 60 cards. Players may use pre-constructed decks or customised decks created from their personal card collection.
Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths is the 84th expansion for Magic the Gathering (MtG), released on 24 April 2020. 274 cards make up this set: 111 commons, 80 uncommons, 53 rares, 15 mythic rares, and 15 basic lands.
The new mechanics: Mutate and Keyword Counters represent the key theme of the set, "create your own monster". This expansion introduced the Companion card type: A creature with the Companion keyword has a deck-building rule. If the player constructs a deck to the specified requirement, the Companion is not shuffled into the player’s deck. Instead it starts outside the game. Once during the game, the Companion can be cast from outside the game.
Theme Booster Packs will help players expand their collection in a specific area, by providing cards of a specific colour or theme. Five Theme Booster Packs were released with the Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths, one for each of the five basic colours of MtG.
