Breaking News! New Dice Masters DC Sets Announced!

Big news, everyone! New Dice Masters entries were added to Wizkids’ Solicits page (which can be found here). Three items were added.

All of the following is currently scheduled for release in September 2018.

  • Justice Campaign Box.From the name, we can definitely expect some new Justice League characters, something which I was hoping to see since DC released their recent movie. As it’s a Campaign Box, we can reasonably expect 48 character cards (16 characters, 3 versions each), matching dice, and 10 basic action cards. The box should hold over 300 dice, which will be convenient storage for the new Team Packs they’re announcing too.
  • Doom Patrol Team Pack

I’ll admit I know little about the Doom Patrol. But I’ve been seeing them mentioned repeatedly as characters we’ve been missing from Dice Masters. I’ll certainly be looking forward to discovering Negative Man, Elasti-Girl, Mento and the rest of the team.

  • Mystics Team Pack

Here’s an interesting twist. We have certainly seen some mystics in previous sets, but outside of Zatanna, the only characters with the Mystics affiliation have all come from Marvel. Will we finally see Dr. Fate in Dice Masters? How about a (non-lantern) Spectre? Phantom Stranger? The possibilities are mind-boggling.

Team Packs typically have 8 characters, with 2 dice and 3 cards per character, so this is likely what we can expect from both Team Packs.

We currently have limited information about these sets. We’ll update this article as more information becomes available. Stay tuned!

UPDATE: ICV2 has now posted an article on the subject, which you can find here. From this article, we know the following:

On the Campaign Box: it will include 15 characters (and presumably one non-basic action, based on the size of a campaign box), featuring the Justice League and the Legion of Doom, including:

  • Superman
  • Wonder Woman
  • Lex Luthor
  • Metallo

The Doom Patrol Team Pack will include, among others:

  • Elastic-Girl
  • Robotman
  • Plastic Man (yay!)

The Mystics Team Pack will include:

  • Shazam!
  • Captain Marvel Jr.
  • Mary Marvel
  • Black Adam

As previously speculated, the Team Packs will each come with 24 cards and 16 dice.

I, for one, am now very excited for this. What are your thoughts? Feel free to discuss in the comments below!

  1. I’m guessing the “15” in the ICV2 article was an error? It’s gotta be 16, doesn’t it?

    Sad to see more evidence of the death of draft, but also happy to see some new DC!

    1. I’m glad to see some new DC as well! It’s refreshing to see them go off the beaten pack with some new characters.

      As for the “15” in icv2’s article, I see what you’re saying, but I have a different theory. I think they’ll have 15 characters, with the 16th set of three cards being a non-basic action. That’s what they seem to be doing in Avengers Infinity, as one of the dice on that box is an action die with the Avengers logo.

      With that said, if it is a typo and we get 16 characters, that would be fun too!

  2. Constantine has gotta be in the mystics team pack, right? I was thinking of the justice league dark but none of the announced characters fit that. Anyways exciting to get more DC announcements!

    1. Well, judging by how good every version of Constantine was back in Justice League, it’s clear they love the character. However, it looks like they’re making this set around Alex Ross’ Justice series, based on the art that’s been shown. Was Constantine in that series at all?

  3. I think that the characters featured in the Justice Campaign Box, the Doom Patrol Team Pack, and the Mystics Team Pack will all be taken from DC’s Justice series featuring artwork by Alex Ross. If this is so, I think there would be a higher likelihood for characters like Zatanna and the Phantom Stranger to be included in the Mystics Team Pack, than characters like Dr. Fate, Constantine, or the Spectre.
