Wait… didn’t we have a giant news bomb last night? Well, things won’t be stopping anytime soon, as Hasbro just revealed a vast new crossover from within their franchise: Transformers. This franchise recently had a card game that went a bit south, but MTG and TCG fans should be happy to see some of their favorite Autobots and Decepticons appear at their tables. These cards will be available in Brothers’ War Bundles, Set Boosters, and Collector Boosters! Some new mechanics were premiered with these guys, so there’s a bit to unpack here. Here’s our first look at the MTG Transformers crossover!

Optimus Prime, Hero and Starscream, Power Hungry

Ok, there are a lot of things going on with these cards. Let’s take a moment to break it all down:

  • More than meets the eye allows these Transformers to be cast in their vehicle form.
  • Both sides of these cards can conditionally ‘convert’ into the other. Honestly, the conversion requirements are incredibly flavorful.
  • Most of the vehicle-side of these cards (also flavorfully vehicles) count themselves as creatures during their owner’s turns. None of them seem to have Crew costs.

Otherwise, these cards offer some really unique effects for eternal-legal formats. Optimus Prime works a bit like Edgar, Charmed Groom, while Starscream interacts with Monarch mechanics as a representation of his desire to rule.

Soundwave, Sonic Spy and Slicer, Hired Muscle

Soundwave features an incredibly complex set of abilities in exchange for his vehicle side not being a creature. This looks fantastic in any deck that wants to create tokens or cast spells. Honestly, Slicer doesn’t seem too powerful, but it could be fun in a Zedruu, the Gifted deck.

Goldbug is a vital tool in any deck that cares about Human creatures, while Flamewar may do well in an Aristocrat-style deck that cares about sacrificing permanents. That said, Flamewar could do well in any Commander deck that goes through cards fast, as they threaten to refill your hand with ease.

Are You Excited?

Reactions to this sudden spoiling have been extreme. Some players are incredibly excited about MTG’s newest crossover, but most of MTG’s vocal player base is pretty annoyed. Above all, however, is a highly vocal few who now want to see My Little Pony, another Hasbro-owned franchise, get its own crossover. Where do you stand?
