A new Enchantment type Class within Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures into the Forgotten Realms was revealed today, showcasing more die roll flavor. 

Releasing digitally in a week on July 8, the Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures into the Forgotten Realms (AFR) MTG set already has multiple cards supporting the d20 mechanic. Barbarian Class, a one-drop Mono-Red Enchantment that operates like Saga and Level Up with a d20 die, was revealed today by Rocket Beans TV during the fourth day of AFR spoilers.

  • CMC: R
  • Type: Enchantment—Class
  • Rarity: Uncommon
  • Class: Gain the next level as a Sorcery to add its ability
  • Level 1: If would roll one or more dice, instead roll that many dice plus one and ignore the lowest roll
  • Paid ability 1R Level 2: Whenever you roll one or more dice, the target creature you control gets +2/+0 and gains Menace until the end of the turn
  • Paid ability 2R Level 3: Creatures you control have Haste

Level Up is a keyword in Magic that lets players put level counters on a creature like Brimstone Mage. A Saga is a vertical Enchantment that advances a lore counter every turn. Class has the vertical appearance of a Saga and is also an Enchantment, mashed together with the paid Level Up mechanic. 

There will likely be a cycle of Class Enchantments in AFR, highlighting the 12 D&D classes. “Seven of the [Class Enchantments] are Rare, and none will appear in extended art,” according to WotC.

Class will release with the AFR Standard-legal set digitally via Magic Online and MTG Arena on July 8. A global tabletop launch will take place on July 23.
