Magic: The Gathering's November 2023 Standard set, The Brothers' War, officially releases today. The Brothers' War retells a monument war between two brothers, Urza and Mishra. The outcome of The Brothers' War has a dramatic impact on the fate of Dominaria and its inhabitants.
The Brothers' War includes exciting new-to-MTG cards and 63 retro artifact reprints. Urza's Iron Alliance and Mishra's Burnished Banner Commander Preconstructed Decks also release alongside The Brothers' War. New cards in The Brothers' War and its accompanying Commander Precon Decks synergize with many cards from previous sets. While not often, some synergistic cards will spike in price due to heightened demand.
