Rebalanced Alchemy card with "A" in-line with the card name and "A" foil stamp

Alchemy cards are digital-only cards featured in the Alchemy play-mode of Magic: The Gathering Arena.[1][2]


There are two kinds of Alchemy cards:

Rebalanced Alchemy versions of Standard contain the MTG Arena "A" in-line with the card name. They also have an "A" as a "foil stamp" at the bottom of the card. The foil stam p first was the MTG Arena "A", but was redesigned starting with Alchemy: New Capenna.

Revised Alchemy card stamp

Internally, the card name is slightly different as well, with an "A-" prefix to indicate that they are the rebalanced version. For example, A-Esika's Chariot is the rebalanced version of Esika's Chariot. This only really matters for things like deck import and export, though; name-a-card effects and other in-game mechanics still refer to the normal name.

Designed-for-digital Alchemy cards also have the "A" stamp. In addition they have a separate expansion symbol for each released set.
