During the past few weeks, the MTG community has been dominated by Phyrexia: All Will Be One leaks. Spoiler season is scheduled to start next week, yet we already have, if not all, almost all the Rare cards in the set spoiled to us. Unfortunately, as Wizards of the Coast writes in a recent update announced today, “Phyrexia’s agenda to invade the Multiverse began a bit early last weekend, starting with Draft Boosters of Dominaria Remastered.”
Phyrexia: All Will Be One Leaks Confirmed Real
We’ve reported on these leaks for quite a while because the source of the leaks was pretty reliable. This isn’t the first time that an MTG product has accidentally appeared in a previous product. We saw something pretty similar with Baldur’s Gate Collector Booster packs when Double Masters 2022 cards started appearing in them. While every single leak we’ve seen may not be 100% true, a good amount of these will be now that Wizards of the Coast has confirmed that these Phyrexia: All Will Be One cards are very real.
In a statement released today, Wizards of the Coast addresses the “very on-brand” Phyrexian Invasion of Dominaria Remastered Booster Boxes:
“Phyrexia’s agenda to invade the Multiverse began a bit early last weekend, starting with Draft Boosters of Dominaria Remastered. As many fans noted during preview events held at Wizards Play Network stores around the world, some small number of Dominaria Remastered Draft Boosters contained a bit of Phyrexia—namely, rare cards from the upcoming Phyrexia: All Will Be One set.”
Generally, if you were lucky or unlucky enough to receive one of the Phyrexia: All Will be One leaks in your Dominaria Remastered pack, it replaced the old-bordered slot. Unless your foil slot is also a Rare, Dominaria Remastered packs only contain one Rare. Sometimes, this Rare can appear in the old-bordered slot. So, while getting two, or even three, Rare cards in these error packs is possible, you could have a to-be-Standard Rare replace your retro framed Force of Will. This can make acquiring valuable old-bordered cards much more difficult than anticipated.
Customer Service Contacts
As you may imagine, the potential for an MTG player to receive a Phyrexian Rare in place of their old-bordered tutor or free counterspell can leave for some less-than-thrilled fans. Fortunately, Wizards of the Coast has offered any affected parties the opportunity to talk with customer service regarding the faulty product:
“While terribly on-brand for Phyrexia, we also know it was unexpected for fans. If anyone who purchased Dominaria Remastered Draft Boosters is unsatisfied with their purchase due to the presence of future Phyrexian nonsense, you can contact Customer Support here.“
Even though a majority of Phyrexia: All Will be One’s spoiler season has been unceremoniously derailed by 60 of the set’s most important cards being leaked, Wizards of the Coast plans to continue Phyrexia: All Will be One’s spoiler season as planned:
“In the meantime, like the brave Mirrans who stand in their way, we also won’t be bowing down to this Phyrexian invasion.”
For those interested in checking out the reveal, keep an eye out on MTG’s official YouTube and Twitch channels around 12 P.M US EST. While we do know all of the Rare cards in the set, the Mythics have yet to be spoiled. Judging from the fact that the first Compleated Planeswalker of the set was a Mythic, it’s safe to say that, at minimum, we still have three more of them to see. Uncommon cards like Expressive Iteration also come around once in a while. After all, the biggest financial spike this week was originally printed as an Uncommon. Either way, all of the spicy decks we’ve been brewing around these Phyrexia: All Will Be One leaks may yet come true!
