What is Planechase?

A fast explanation of this fantastic format.

Planechase is a card game and a variant of Magic: The Gathering with an emphasis on multi-player games. The set utilizes new oversized Plane cards, cards that are based on various locations (Planes) within the Magic multiverse, to modify the rules of gameplay.
To play Planechase you need a "planar die" (simulated by the App) that has four blank faces, one "Planeswalk" face with the "Planeswalker" symbol, and one "Chaos" face with its own symbol unique to Planechase.
During a player's main phase, that player can roll the planar die, with three possible outcomes.

The Planar Die

During a player's main phase, that player can roll the planar die, with three possible outcomes.

This die has four blank sides which have no effect. One side has the planeswalker symbol on it and the final side of the planar die shows the chaos symbol.
Each side has a specific effect, listed below.

  • A blank roll of the planar die does nothing.
  • If "Chaos" is rolled, the "Chaos" ability of the current plane card triggers.
  • If the "planeswalk" symbol is rolled, the player "planeswalks away" from the current plane (put it on the bottom of its owner's planar deck) and he or she reveals the top card of his or her planar deck, which becomes the new plane that has been "planeswalked to."
A player can roll the planar die as many times as he or she likes, but successive rolls cost an additional one mana for each time the planar die has been rolled this turn.
