Public domain name registries connected to this name were filed by a subsidiary registrar in January, 2021. A further registration with the gg domain was filed by Wizards of the Coast itself in May 2021. The design of the set is inspired by an old expansion set on Dominaria.
Dominaria United contains 281 cards (20 basic lands), and includes randomly inserted premium versions of all cards. Set, Draft and Collector Boosters contain a legendary card in each booster, showing off a cast of beloved legends and characters that longtime fans will recognize. There are more than 40 legendary creatures across the set. The regular cards include 5 full-art "stained-glass" basic lands by Magali Villeneuve (#277-281). The other cycles of basics depict automaton relics of the Brothers' War, Phyrexian ruins, and legendary artifacts respectively.
Alternate card frames have another card number than the original version.
We return once again to Dominaria, meeting some familiar heroes and villains. The story begins following Karn as he looks back on Dominaria's past to prepare for its future. The enemy is already on Dominaria, and it's only a matter of time before conflict breaks out. This kicks off an epic story arc spanning four sets where the fate of Dominaria — and the Multiverse — is set to unravel.
The cards that represent the Story Spotlights in Dominaria United are:
Dominaria United is sold in regular 16-card Draft Boosters (one card being a marketing card), Collector Boosters, Set Boosters, the Dominaria United Bundle, and four Commander decks. The Draft Boosters feature artwork depicting Karn. The Set Boosters feature art depicting Ajani Goldmane, and the Collector Boosters feature artwork depicting Braids.
With this set, Wizards introduces set-related Jumpstart Boosters, replacing the Theme Boosters. Jumpstart packs for Dominaria United feature cards from the set, including a rare or mythic rare, two foil basic lands, and a mechanically unique rare designed for the Jumpstart pack. There are 10 different themes.
In selected collector boosters, a card from Legends, found in an old warehouse, was included. These appear in 3% of boosters, and not every card from Legends was included. Some cards were missing because of the well-known Legends collation problems, some because Wizards of the Coast doesn't want to be associated with a certain artist anymore, and some because the depictions or flavor texts are nowadays considered to be culturally offensive.
