War of the Spark Mechanics

War of the Spark releases on May 3, 2019.  The main theme of the set is planeswalkers and cards that interact with them.  The set features 36 planeswalkers and ach booster pack contains a planeswalker card.  All planeswalkers are new cards never printed before cards.

Proliferate, originally from the Scars of Mirrodin block returns to Standard format. When a player proliferates, he or she chooses any number of players and / or permanents with a counter on them, then puts another of those counters on these players or permanents. However, it now has now been modified from choosing a type of counter already present and adding one counter of that type, to adding one counter of each type already present.

Affinity, last seen in the Mirrodin block, appears only on Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge. It reduces the mana cost of a spell by the number of permanents of a certain type that player controls (typically artifacts).

New mechanic - Amass. "Amass N" means put N +1/+1 counters on an Army creature you control. If you don't control one, create a 0/0 black Zombie Army creature token first.  Army becomes a new addition to creature types.
