Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms is a Dungeons & Dragons crossover Magic: The Gathering set which replaces the core set of the 2021-2022 standard rotation.[3] It is the 88th Magic expansion and releases on July 23, 2021.[4][5] The name of the set is often abbreviated to Adventures in the Forgotten Realms or Forgotten Realms.

Set details

Mark Rosewater had worked on a Dungeons & Dragons TCG as early as 2016[6], Before that, the D&D Spellfire CCG had been created by TSR, Inc.. Adventures in the Forgotten Realms is a true collaboration between the two Hasbro teams.[7] The D&D team worked with the Magic team on every aspect of the set, similar to how the Magic team worked with the D&D team on D&D Mythic Odysseys of Theros and D&D Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica. The D&D team provided extensive feedback on both the visuals and lore of The Forgotten Realms. The visuals of the cards will tell a story and it features many favorite D&D characters in the flavor text.

This set contains 281 regular cards (20 basic lands) and includes randomly inserted premium versions of all cards. Alternate card frames have another card number than the original version. Borderless cards are numbered #TBA-TBA, and showcase cards with the "classic rulebook frame treatment", pulled from the look and feel of the Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual, are numbered #TBA-TBA . Extended artwork cards are numbered #TBA-TBA. The Buy-a-Box card is #399.

As a first, the basic lands of this set feature flavor texts. These are structured as descriptions presented by a Dungeon Master.[5]


The Forgotten Realms is a campaign setting for the D&D fantasy role-playing game. Commonly referred to by players and game designers alike as "The Realms", the planet Toril is shared by humans, dwarves, elves, goblins, orcs, and other peoples and creatures. Technologically, the world of the Forgotten Realms resembles the pre-industrial Earth of the 13th or 14th century. However, the presence of magic provides an additional element of power to societies. There are several nation-states and many independent cities, with loose alliances being formed for defense or conquest. Forgotten Realms centers on Faerûn, a sub-continent in the northern hemisphere of Toril.[8]

The Forgotten Realms are not considered to be canonically part of Magic 's Multiverse.[9][10]


Adventures in the Forgotten Realms is sold in regular 16-card Draft Boosters (one card being a marketing card), Theme Boosters (five monocolored and 1 TBA), Collector Boosters, Set Boosters, the Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Bundle, and four Commander decks.
