Iconic Masters Explorers of Ixalan From the Vault: Transform‎‎

Explorers of Ixalan is an out-of-the-box multiplayer Magic set, that challenges you to defeat your opponents along the way as you search for the lost city of Orazca.[2][3] It combines board game elements with regular play. Though thematically themed to Ixalan, the set is not considered to be part of the Ixalan block.

Set details[edit | edit source]

This set contains 4 sixty card preconstructed theme decks (all reprints), 4 deck boxes, 10 double-sided tokens, 50 game tiles (water and land, forming an island) and 40 counter pieces (depicting the factions). Games take about 40 to 45 minutes and can support 2 to 4 players.

Players battle over a board of hexagonal tiles they may claim by paying the amount of mana shown on the back face. Each tile then reveals either an event for an immediate effect, a quest for a reward on completion, or a site that grants a continuous effect but can be stolen by other players. The more tiles revealed, the closer the players get to revealing the Golden City of Orazca. The pool of tiles (50) is larger than the number that are actually used each game (29), so some variation occurs.

The set contains 47 reprints (numbered #1/47 to #47/47) with the Explorers of Ixalan expansion symbol. The other cards are Ixalan cards with the Ixalan expansion symbol.
