Revolving Planeswalk is a Standard PvP event, released the 10th of October 2022 along with the Dominaria United set.

Revolving Planeswalk has five varieties, which are run as daily events during the week, each with an entry fee of 20 Mana Crystals. Each version of the event and each node corresponds to a different colour. All five nodes and their special supports appear in every version, run in a different order for each color of event; the first node is always the color of the event. The rest are run in the order: Blue, Black, Red, Green, with White taking the place of whichever other color might be first. Subsequent nodes are unlocked by defeating the previous node.

A Planeswalker may be chosen for any combination of the nodes of its colors, but once a Planeswalker has been chosen for a node, another may not be chosen for that node, for the whole event. This differs from the usual type of Locked Nodes, where a PW can only be chosen for a single node.

The Special Rules are: Locked Nodes, Color Restricted, and Permanent Supports affecting play.

Tuesday Faculty of the Wise Blue Blue Blue Node White Node Black Node Green Node Red Node
Wednesday Well of the Autocratic Black Black Black Node Blue Node White Node Green Node Red Node
Thursday Battle Cry of the Furious Red Red Red Node Blue Node Black Node Green Node White Node
Friday Nursery of the Consonant Green Green Green Node Blue Node Black Node White Node Red Node

RP features no unique elements of the DMU set. Instead, all of the ten objectives require the Summoning of two creatures with a Basic EvergreenBerserkerDeathtouchDefenderDouble StrikeFirst StrikeFlyingHexproofLifelinkMenaceReachTrampleVigilance ability, with two exceptions: HasteHaste is not an Evergreen ability, and the fliers of the Blue Node must be Cast). Two abilities are each node, totalling nine of the twelve Basic Evergreens; all except BerserkerBerserker, LifelinkLifelink and HexproofHexproof.

Revolving Planeswalk nodes have a very fast, two hour recharge time.

Notes

RP replaced Zendikar Expeditions as the daily event. ZE offered five nodes, any of which could be played while they had charges.

The initial announcement of the event's release proclaimed a points structure of five Ribbons (25Ribbons) for the win, and three and two for the secondary objectives. Popular criticism of this plan on the forums led to the current points structure, with double the points available.

All of the objectives are named after the Abilities they require except for Winged, which requires creatures with FlyingFlying, and Threaten, which requires MenaceMenace.

The Evergreens of the secondary objectives, as one might expect, are those common to creatures of that color, except for the Double StrikeDouble Strike required for the Red node. As of the release of this event, there are only two Red Double Strike creatures in the whole of Standard, one of which is a Masterpiece. There are no PWs that summon creatures with Double Strike, and Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas is the only PW that grants it to creatures in hand. Until this might be fixed, it will force players of the Red Node to play White and Red Planeswalkers on it, or forego the points for that objective, or draw the match out for a very long time.

Perhaps oddly, because even Wizards of the Coast calls these abilities Basic, only two of the ten objectives have been seen previously; the Defender name had been used before, but it required Casting, not Summoning.

A bug on Black Node was fixed : When a creature with Deathtouch or Menace was summoned, Compleation Station's effect would activate even if it was declined in the popup, giving a random creature Imminent Death.
