The Brothers' War is the 39th expansion set of Magic: The Gathering - Puzzle Quest, released on December 14th, 2022 in version 6.0 of the game. The set abbreviation is BRO, and the set icon () resembles a gear cog split into two parts, to represent the two titular artificers Urza and Mishra, split apart by their conflict.
Meld reappears in the BRO set; only seen before in the Eldritch Moon set. It has been reworked with a new icon, which has been added to the EMN cards as well. There are no other abilities added by BRO.
However, there is a support that recurs on almost 10 percent of the set's cards: Powerstone.
There is no Training section in Story mode for The Brothers' War since it introduced no new game mechanics.
Like Dominaria United before it, BRO has no Vanguards.
