Overview

This page describes the types of Gems you can encounter on the gem board during a game of Magic: the Gathering Puzzle Quest

Colored gems

Colored gems are white, blue, black, red, or green.

  • Colored gems may become Support gems when a support is played.
  • Colored gems may become Activated gems when a card with an activated ability is played.

Matching colored gems gives you 1 Mana per gem, extra mana equal to your mana bonus in that color, and 1 Loyalty.

Loyalty gems

Matching loyalty gems gives you 1 Loyalty per gem, but no mana.

Loyalty gems generally can't be converted into other gem colors or types unless explicitly specified.

Support gems

When a support card or token enters play, a colored gem becomes a Support gem.

  • If possible, the support is placed on a gem matching a color of the support.
  • If that's not possible, the support may be placed on any colored gem.

Support gems enter play with a shield value. The shield value represents the durability of the support.

Support gems can't be converted into other gem colors or types.

Creating support gems

Support gems can be created by:

  • Playing a support card from hand.
    • Playing the same support card again reinforces the existing support gem, unless otherwise specified.
  • Using a card or an ability to create a support tokens. Types of support tokens are described below.

Matching support gems

Matching or hitting a support gem by a match-4 reduces its shield by 1. If the shield goes to 0, the support is destroyed. Some supports are indestructible and have infinite shields.

Created by a player's card or loyalty ability No effect (unless otherwise specified)
Part of an event node's special rules Changes the support gem's color to a random color

Types of support gems

Activated gems

Matching or hitting an activated gem with a match 4 destroys the gem and produces an effect which depends on the type of the activated gem.

Activated gems can't be converted into other gem colors or types.

Void gems

Void gems are empty bubbles created by cards with the Ingest ability.

Cards with the Process ability require void gems on the board to work.

Matching 3 or more void gems gives:

  • +1 mana per gem to a card in hand with the Devoid ability
  • No extra mana from any coloured mana bonus
  • +1 loyalty

If you have no Devoid cards in hand, matching devoid gems gives no mana.
