Our exclusive MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One card preview features Oxidda Finisher and Sawblade Scamp, two exciting red cards!


Magic: The Gathering is in the midst of its most impactful narrative ever told, a story that spans its multiverse and has seen the destruction of some of its most iconic characters. Fyreksi: All will be one is a special story, one that leads directly into something that Wizards of the Coast has promised will change the game forever – and it only makes sense that the cards in the set are just as exciting, from accomplished planeswalkers to terrifying horrors.


The importance of Fyreksi: All will be one extends to its art, which features collaborations with massively popular horror manga artists like Junji Ito, and its card finish. The latter, which includes the horror treatment of manga art, also features raised foil that mimics New Phyrexia’s oil-pushed planes, along with What If? treatments of all ten planeswalkers in the set, imagining what would happen to all of them after their completion.

For players, the most exciting part of any set release is of course the cards themselves. Screen Rant is exclusive Magic: The Gathering preview to Fyreksi: All will be one isn’t just one map – it’s two, and it shows two sides of the conflict over New Phyrexia, both in the color red. Here’s a look at the Oxidda Finisher and Sawblade Scamp:

While none of these cards stand out as potential constructed all-stars, they are intriguing looks at what Red will look like in Phyrexia: All Will Be One limited. Sawblade Scamp is a built common that can potentially run away with multi-copy play. Oxidda Finisher needs some work to really reduce the cost – Affinity for Equipment is pretty specific – but in the right deck, even a few mana cost reductions can make this an extremely menacing low-cost threat with Trample.

Screen Rants Phyrexia: All Will Be One preview is also an interesting look into the side stories of MTG lore for the set. The Oxidda Finisher is part of the Mirran Resistance, an Ogre Rebel who seeks to overwhelm the despair-inducing forces of New Phyrexia. Sawblade Scamp is an interesting look at the Red Praetor, Urabrask, and just what his great work implies: it seems like a naturally annoying part of an army, one that might even undermine its own side given the uncontrollable nature implied in its flavor text.

As it says, Phyrexia: All Will Be One could be one of the most impactful Magic: The Gathering set ever created based on its ongoing history alone. The fact that it contains some mind-blowing cards—complete planeswalkers chief among them—is added incentive to pick up and play the set when it releases on February 10, 2023.
