Themes and mechanics[ | ]

Cryptic Spires

Double Masters 2022 features the following multicolored limited archetypes:

Cryptic Spires[ | ]

Cryptic Spires is the first new-to-Magic card to appear in a Masters set.[9] It is designed to help smooth out the mana in the Draft format. Each Double Masters 2022 Draft Booster contains exactly one Cryptic Spires. The card is similar to a checklist card; it doesn't appear in foil, nor does it appear in Collector Boosters. Cryptic Spires is legal in any Commander deck. As you create your deck, you circle two of the mana symbols depicted on the bottom of the card. That card can tap for one mana of either of the circled colors.

In limited, your deck can have more than 4 copies of Cryptic Spires, assuming you drafted them. In constructed, you are limited to the cap of the format (In Standard a maximum of 4).[10]

Cycles[ | ]

Double Masters 2022 has 3 cycles.
