“  Glory to Phyrexia  ”

Phyrexia: All Will Be One contains 271 cards (101 commons, 80 uncommons, 60 rares, 20 mythic rares, 10 basic lands), and includes randomly inserted premium versions of all cards. The regular cards include 5 Phyrexian Panorama Full Art basic lands (#262-266) and 5 Phyrexianized Full Art basic lands (#267-271).[4] Alternate card frames have a different card number than the original version.[6] The Bundle basic lands are #272-276, the dark frame treatment cards from the Universal promo pack are numbered #277-281, the Bundle promos are #282-283 and the Buy-a-Box card is #284. Black-and-white "ichor" showcase cards are numbered #285-297, while the borderless versions are #298-324. #325-329 Phyrexian language planeswalkers. Cards with a borderless manga treatment for select characters and planeswalkers reimagined as Phyrexians ("What if") are #330-344.[7] The Oil Slick Raised Foil cards of the Compleat Bundle are #345-369. Borderless dual lands are #370-374. Extended artwork cards are numbered #375-403. The Standard legal Jumpstart rares are #404-413. The different treatments for Elesh Norn are #414-21 and Step-and-compleat foil cards are numbered #422-489.

The mega-mega cycle of Praetors are available in all three booster types, with Richard Whitter's borderless concept art. Each have the collector number and set code of their original printing.[6]

On October 14, 2022, three months before the release of Phyrexia: All Will Be One and even before the start of the spoiler season of the previous set, several Showcase cards from ONE were shown off on Reddit.[8] These revealed the step-and-compleat foil treatment and several mechanics. A week before previews started, almost all rares from the set were found packaged in Dominaria Remastered packs and subsequently spoiled on Reddit.[9]

Storyline[ | ]

This is the third part of the four-set Phyrexian story arc where the fate of Dominaria — and the Multiverse — is set to unravel. The Phyrexians grow ever stronger, as Elesh Norn inches closer to her plan to conquer the Multiverse.[10] We view Phyrexia from their point of view. They are antagonistic with each other.[11] The Planeswalkers who gathered to stop the Phyrexians on Dominaria lost — badly. Now, every plane of the Multiverse is in Phyrexian sights with their plan to invade them all. The only hope that remains is to take them out on their home turf, destroying the Phyrexian's means to Multiverse invasion. The risk that some of the heroes fall to Phyrexians is high, but the stakes for everyone else are even higher. Planeswalkers team up and head down into New Phyrexia to end the threat of invasion once and for all.

Five of the ten planeswalkers printed in the set are compleated, a disastrous casualty rate in preparation for the finale. The cards that represent the Story Spotlights in Phyrexia: All Will Be One are:

Poison counter[ | ]

ONE Poison counter

Poison counter spin-down

Stores in Germany, Austria, France, and Italy can participate in a special Magic: The Gathering play and purchase promotion. Players who participate in a Magic: The Gathering event, and purchase €75 of Phyrexia: All Will Be One sealed product receive a poison counter. The poison counters are green 10-sided dice with a Phyrexian symbol in place of the number ten.[17]

The List[ | ]

The List introduces the Universes Within versions of the 8 cards from the Secret Lair Drop Series: Street Fighter.[4] The rebranded characters are natives of Dominaria.

Beadle & Grimm's[ | ]

Behold New Phyrexia, a Beadle & Grimm's product connected to Phyrexia: All Will Be One, was released on February 18, 2023.[18] It consisted of a Phyrexian-themed artifact / deck box designed to look like it originated out of The Fair Basilica, an in-world Phyrexian language translation journal, four matching alloy d10 life counters, 130 Elesh Norn-themed card sleeves and a Limited-print foil Phyrexian language Mental Misstep with art by Erica Yang.

Themes and mechanics[ | ]

Phyrexia: All Will Be One sees the return of Poison counters and the Phyrexian-flavored Proliferate mechanic.[8] To give a different proliferation gameplay experience to the -1/-1 counters from Scars of Mirrodin block and the +1/+1 counters in War of the Spark, neither of these counters are present, and instead oil counters are used. This would be the first set since the simplified Portal sets to not use stat-changing counters and is the only premier set or equivalent to not have any.

The new Toxic mechanic is a reworking of Poisonous. Instead of giving poison counter as a triggered ability, this is more like Lifelink adding the counters instantaneously (Players dealt combat damage by this creature also get N poison counters).[15]

The Corrupted ability word is also new.[8] Corrupted is a Threshold variant for abilities that can only be activated or triggered if an opponent has three or more poison counters.[8]

A keyword ability on equipment is For Mirrodin! (When this Equipment enters the battlefield, create a 2/2 red Rebel creature token, then attach this to it). This is similar to Living weapon.

Battle cry and Phyrexian mana are featured as callbacks to the last visit to New Phyrexia. However, other than for compleated, Phyrexian mana is present only as a cost to activate abilities.[19] Five of the ten planeswalkers printed in the set are compleated.

The set sees the promotion of two mechanics, flashback and affinity, to deciduous status.[20][21][22]

Card types[ | ]

The set introduces the Mite creature type.[15]

Planeswalkers are featured in both Mythic Rare and Rare, with ten total in the set.

Rebel is seen for the first time as a creature type since the Time Spiral block. Four cards with the type represent the small number of Mirran survivors (although Equipment cards with the For Mirrodin! keyword create them as well.) On the other hand, more than 120 cards have the Phyrexian creature type.

Sphere is a new land type, associated with the Spheres of New Phyrexia.

Atraxa, Grand Unifier lists the new card type Battle, as a teaser for an upcoming set.

Counter types[ | ]

Phyrexia: All Will Be One introduces Oil counters.[19]
