March of the Machine is the 41st expansion set of Magic: The Gathering - Puzzle Quest, released on the 12th of June, 2023 in version 6.2 of the game. The set abbreviation is MOM, and the set icon () is a long dagger, in keeping with the story of the planes uniting in war against Phyrexia.
No new mechanics are added by the expansion and therefore no Training scenario. However, sixteen cards see the return of Convoke ; more than in its debut in Guilds of Ravnica. Thirteen cards have Flash ; not a rare ability, but neither is it common.
Many cards from the MOM paper set, and its "Battles" card ability, were left out of the Puzzle Quest version.
6.2 also saw the beginning of a hopeful end of the infinite combo Danitha, Benalia's Hope and Blade of Shared Souls. Danitha fetched the Blade and gave it full Mana, and the Blade made a Copy of Danitha.
The new loading screens added, as is usual for each new set, included the art of the Open the Way and Bloodfell Caves cards; both are March of the Machine cards left out of the PQ release, although the Caves have been reprinted in many sets including Clans of Tarkir and Core Set 2021.
As of release, no new events had been announced.
The March of the Machine card set release consisted of 130 cards across all five rarities: 5 Masterpiece, 10 Mythic, 30 Rare, 40 Uncommon and 45 Common. Full art variants of 18 of those cards were also released.
No cards from the MOM set were added to the Battles From the Ages Rewards.
