The new Universes Beyond expansion becomes available starting July 5

Assassin’s Creed is the latest Universes Beyond expansion for Magic: The Gathering, and will be popping out of an unsuspecting haystack near you starting on July 5. The new set features a total of 100 mechanically unique cards inspired by the stealthy, stabby franchise.

While these new cards won’t include characters or settings from the recently announced Assassin’s Creed Shadows, you can expect appearances from virtually every other corner of the Assassin’s Creed universe, including Altair, Ezio, Eivor, and more. If you’d like to add any of these new cards to your existing collection, the new expansion is available to pre-order in a variety of formats from Amazon and GameStop, which we’ve linked out to below, along with a list of their contents.

//if you don’t want subheads, set to false in the function call (no quotes)

//collapsible is a true/false toggle

//see graham if you have any questions/issues

window.addEventListener(‘DOMContentLoaded’, (event) => {

});
