regex: operator is now available to filter Oracle text using a regular expression.
Regular expressions are very powerful. Here are some examples of searches you can make with this keyword:
- Instants that grant +X/+X boosts
- Creatures that have a tap ability with no other payment
- Cards that mention orcs, but not other words like sORCery or ORChard
The advanced search card type field now supports negation and is enhanced with an auto-complete helper. A new field has been added to support “is” search criteria.
You can now search for cards with hybrid mana in their mana costs or Oracle text using is:hybrid.
We’ve added a new “format”: future. Using the
f:future keyword or picking “Future Standard” on the advanced search will let you search over what Standard will be once the next set is released or a rotation occurs. Whenever we start spoiling a new Standard set, we will update
f:future to let you brew for the coming season.
Try it out with f:future to brew with Amonkhet.
Images for Planechase Anthology (PCA) are now high-resolution.
Whenever you sort results by price, and you aren’t filtering cards on print-specific values (like artist or rarity), the results will now automatically show you the cheapest reprints. This update makes it super easy to do things like:
Searches now allow up to 5,000 cards in results (up from 1,500). Now you can all kinds of silly things, like reading every single blue card.

Scryfall now offers Slack and Discord bots that pull card information into gaming channels. Surround
[[card names]] with braces and the bot will post Oracle text to your channel. Also supports
A new API method is now available: /catalog/card-names.
Returns a collection of all English Magic card names. The names are drawn from Scryfall’s database. This method will return a name as soon as we have the card entered for “spoiler season.” 😎
The Saved Cards page now shows price totals when all cards have pricing data available.
Many older sets have been renumbered to more closely match the standardized color/name order that newer sets usually have.
Note that none of the following sets have official collector numbers, so our re-assigned numbers continue to be chosen “arbitrarily” and/or not from WOTC:
- Limited Edition Alpha (lea)
- Limited Edition Beta (leb)
- Unlimited Edition (2ed)
- Revised Edition (3ed)
- Legends (leg)
- Fallen Empires (fem)
- Fourth Edition (4ed)
- Chronicles (chr)
- Homelands (hml)
- Fifth Edition (5ed)
- Portal (por)
- Portal: Second Age (po2)
In addition, the following sets were renumbered to match either the partial or full list of collector numbers we have for that set from Magic Online. The rest of the set numbers were assigned “arbitrarily” as with the above list.
Images for the Kaladesh Inventions (MPS) are now full resolution.

You can now find cards that are or are not reprints. Try e:c16 not:reprint.
Plane, Scheme, and Phenomenon cards have been hidden from default results. You must now specifically search for their sets or types. See the docs for more info.
Color identity searches are now “coverage”-type searches instead of a match filter. Searching for
id:wug will find all cards that you can put in a white/blue/green commander deck. The old version of this search would find cards that had at least white/blue/green in their color identity, which was not very useful. Try id:wug t:instant
You now can find cards that share two or more given sets with
+ signs. Try e:kld+mps
Complete Commander 2016 information is available. Try ++e:c16.
You can now filter cards by TIX and USD prices. Try ++tix>15.00 for all cards that cost more than 15.00 TIX.
