The 25 cards found in Historic Anthology 5 have been revealed, which means cards like Phyrexian Preators, Stifle, Commands from Dragons of Tarkir, and more will now be usable in Magic: The Gathering Arena. There's a lot of info to go through, so let's get started, shall we?

The bundle itself will cost either 4,000 Gems or 25,000 gold if you've somehow managed to save up that much, and the bundle itself will be available from May 27, 2021 to August 12, 2021. If you want to have these cards after this date you'll be able to craft the cards using Wildcards of "the appropriate rarity" after August 12, 2021.

As for the legality of the cards, they will be able to be played in Historic formats upon release, and if you want to see them in action you can watch Magic pros use the latest and greatest Historic decks at the Strixhaven Championship. It'll be live from June 4-6 on Magic's Twitch channel, so don't miss out if you want to see some... historic games.
