"Rebuild the Multiverse while building up your collection"
The Multiverse will never be the same after the Phyrexian invasion, but Wizards wasn't completely able to tell the whole story with the release of March of the Machine.
In a rare move, Wizards of the Coast is releasing a small 50 card non-draftable follow up set detailing the rebuilding of the Multiverse and the effects of our favourite Planeswalkers losing their iconic spark.
So what is March of the Machine: The Aftermath?
It is a micro set of 50 cards following up on March of the Machine, and will be released both in tabletop and digital on May 12, 2023.
Aftermath contains 50 regular cards (15 uncommons, 25 rares, 10 mythic rares), and 180 alternate versions of those same cards.
Different showcase-style cards are #51-100, #101-150 are etched foil, #151-185 are extended art (No Uncommons) and #186-228 are halo foil (skipping the retro frame cards), #229 is the Bundle promo, while #230 is the Buy-a-Box card.
Aftermath serves as an epilogue, hence the Epilogue boosters, tying up some loose ends and starting new beginnings.
The focus is mainly on the conclusion of the Phyrexian invasion 2.0 story arc and how the fabric of the Multiverse has changed.
