Mechanics[ edit ] Lorwyn saw the release of an entirely new card type,  the Planeswalker. A single tribal card, Bound in Silence , was printed as a future-shifted card in Future Sight. Another significant creature type is the shapeshifter type, all of which have the ability "changeling.
This plays into the tribal mechanics which grant bonuses to creatures of certain types. Though these changelings counts as humans for the purposes of the rules, no humans are found in the world of Lorwyn, or are printed on the cards. Although humans had been in all sets since the beginning of the game, they did not have their own subtype until Mirrodin, instead only having subtypes based on their classes.
However, several of the planeswalkers, although they have no creature type, are physically humans. The Lorwyn block features the new keywords champion, clash, evoke, and hideway. Clash involves two players revealing the top cards of the libraries. The person who reveals the card with the highest mana cost wins the clash and gets a bonus on the card played. If a creature is played by paying its Evoke cost, it is sacrificed when it comes into play.
Hideaway, which appears on a cycle of rare lands, lets the player "hide" exiling facedown a card "away" for later. The new mechanics introduced in Morningtide are prowl, kinship, and reinforce. Cards may be cast for their prowl cost if the player has dealt combat damage with a Rogue, often providing some additional effect. Kinship rewards players for revealing creatures that share creature types from the top of their libraries. Morningtide also has a cycle of tribal equipment.
Storyline[ edit ] As stated previously, the Lorwyn plane is relatively based on Welsh mythology. The plane itself resembles an idyllic land, where the season appears to be locked in a midsummer state. There is no night whatsoever, only perpetual daytime. Sun-dappled forests, babbling brooks, and flower-covered mountains abound frequently throughout Lorwyn. The inhabitants of the plane appear to be inspired by mythological creature from western Europe.
Notably, the human race, while popular in other Magic sets, is completely absent. Hobbit-like beings called Kithkin relatively take their place. Other races include the mermaid-like Merfolk, Ent-like beings called Treefolk, and the Faerie race.
While each race lives in perfect harmony, the Elf race is cold and aloof, considering themselves superior. Every three hundred years a planar event occurs, known as the Great Aurora. This transforms Lorwyn into Shadowmoor, a sinister version of the former, where night is ever present.
Each race dons a negative personality and become unaware of their past selves. The Elves, however, become modest and earnest-hearted. Strangely enough, the Faerie race and their queen, Oona, are unaffected during one Great Aurora manifestation. This is where the conflict of story begins.
