Exploring the Possibilities: MTG Doctor Who Card List and Fan Desires

Table of Contents

The announcement of the MTG Doctor Who Commander set has ignited excitement among fans of both Magic: The Gathering (MTG) and the beloved British sci-fi series, Doctor Who. As players eagerly await the release of this crossover collection, anticipation is growing over the card list and the possibility of seeing beloved characters and iconic moments from the Doctor Who universe immortalized in MTG form. Here, we delve into the MTG Doctor Who card list and explore some of the cards we hope to see in this unique collaboration.

MTG Doctor Who Cards

The Doctors and Their Companions

At the heart of Doctor Who are the regenerating Time Lords and their loyal companions. The MTG Doctor Who set provides an opportunity to showcase the various incarnations of the Doctor, from the wise and charismatic Tenth Doctor to the quirky and energetic Thirteenth Doctor – reflecting their personalities in their two-color identities. Each Doctor has their own unique cards, highlighting their distinct abilities and reflecting the essence of their era. Additionally, beloved companions such as Rose Tyler, Amy Pond, Clara Oswald, and many more will feature the brand new ‘Doctor’s Companion‘ mechanic, an ability that reads: ‘You can have two commanders if the other is the Doctor.’ Meaning you can mix and match companions with different Doctors!

By all means, you could create an entire fanfic based on the contents of your deck.

All of the confirmed Doctor and Companion cards are as follows:

CharacterColor Identity
1st DoctorUnknown
2nd DoctorUnknown
3rd DoctorUnknown
4th DoctorBlue, Green
5th DoctorUnknown
6th DoctorUnknown
7th Doctor Unknown
8th DoctorUnknown
9th DoctorUnknown
10th DoctorBlue, Red
11th DoctorUnknown
12th DoctorUnknown
13th DoctorBlue, Green
Sarah Jane SmithWhite
Amy PondUnknown
Rose TylerWhite
Clara OswaldUnknown
Yasmin KhanRed

As you can see, there’s not much that’s been confirmed. But that being said, there are a few cards we can strongly believe will be included, such as:

  • The War Doctor
  • The Fugitive Doctor
  • Meta-Crisis Doctor
  • Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart
  • Jo Grant
  • K-9
  • Adric
  • Ace
  • Jack Harkness
  • Donna Noble
  • Martha Jones
  • River Song
  • Rory Williams
  • Nardole
  • Bill Potts
  • Bad Wolf

Will the 15th Doctor be in MTG?

It wouldn’t be crazy to think RTD might allow both the 14th Doctor and his new companion Ruby Sunday might be in the set. But if so, we might have to wait for a grand reveal.

Monsters and Villains

No Doctor Who adventures is complete without the Doctor’s formidable foes. From the sinister Daleks to the enigmatic Weeping Angels, the Doctor’s adversaries are an integral part of the series. Additionally, cards featuring memorable monsters like the Cybermen, the Silence, and the Sontarans would each have their own special abilities that could add a new layer of strategy and depth to the game.

Not as many villains have been confirmed but it’s not as though Doctor Who is lacking any. Here are the villains and monsters that have been confirmed:

CharacterColor Identity
Davros Red, Blue and Black
DaleksUnknown
Cybermen Unknown
The MasterUnknown
Missy Unknown

Of those confirmed, there’s even more we can anticipate. To name a few cards we expect to see in the Doctor Who MTG:

  • The Zygons
  • The Silence
  • Slitheen
  • Sontarans
  • Weeping Angels
  • The Toclafane
  • Vashta Nerada
  • The Dalek Emperor

TARDIS and Time Travel Mechanics

The TARDIS, the Doctor’s iconic time and space-traveling vessel, holds a special place in the hearts of Whovians. A card representing the TARDIS would likely be an Artifact Vehicle, potentially allowing players to manipulate time or alter game mechanics in unique ways. Time travel mechanics could offer exciting gameplay possibilities, introducing elements such as time loops, temporal paradoxes, or the ability to revisit past turns. And it’s not like time-travel or interference is new to Magic. Although nothing akin to the TARDIS or other iconic vehicles, tools or weapons have been confirmed, we can make some assumptions as to what we’ll likely see:

  • The TARDIS
  • The Paradox Engine
  • The Sonic Screwdriver
  • Laser Screwdriver
  • Rassilon’s Gauntlet
  • Vortex Manipulator 
  • 3D glasses
  • Timey Wimey Detector / The Machine That Goes Ding

Episodes and Sagas

Doctor Who is renowned for its episodes and memorable moments. From the heartbreaking farewell of the Doctor’s companions to the tense confrontations with the Master, these moments have left a mark on fans. The MTG Doctor Who set will feature special sagas that reflect the emotions and narrative of these beloved episodes, with special abilities. Cards representing pivotal moments like the regeneration of the Doctor, the Siege of Trenzalore, or the Battle of Canary Wharf are likely to make an appearance, but so far all we know is that the Parting of Ways is the only confirmed saga.

We have a few theories as to what other episodes will warrant their own saga:

  • Blink
  • Heaven Sent
  • The Pandorica Opens
  • Fugitive of the Judoon
  • The Doctor’s Wife
  • School Reunion
  • The Day of the Doctor
  • The Impossible Planet
  • Midnight
  • Doomsday
  • Genesis of the Daleks
  • Inferno
  • Terror of the Autons

Final Word

Prepare to traverse time and space, summon the Doctor and their companions, and face off against menacing villains. The MTG Doctor Who card list holds the promise of an extraordinary collection, where the magic of MTG intertwines with the wonder of Doctor Who, creating a truly Whovian’s dream come true.
