Until Baldur’s Gate 3 leaves Early Access, you have to wait at least until 2022. Whether the popular companion Minsk until then it will find its way into the game is not yet certain. But if you still feel like seeing the crazy ranger again, you can now do so in Magic: The Gathering Arena.
Minsc in Magic the Gathering – you need to know that
Who is Minsc anyway? The ranger appears in the bioware role-playing games Baldur’s Gate and Baldur’s Gate 2 as a companion that you can include in your party. The fan favorite is characterized by its great sense of justice. His pet is the hamster Boo. Minsc firmly believes that Boo is a miniature giant space hamster from the many head injuries he has susta ined over the years. Minsc also appears in various D&D comics such as “Legends of Baldur’s Gate”.
Was macht Minsc in Magic: The Gathering? The new set of the card game is called Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms and revolves around the Forgotten Realms, the fictional campaign world of Dungeons & Dragons. As part of this set, Minsc, his hamster Boo and other D&D characters will be released as playing cards, including the dragon goddess Tiamat and the dark elf Drizzt Do’Urden.

Minsc can do that in MTG: As soon as you have played Minsc, Boo will appear automatically. If you invest extra mana, you can use Minsc Boo (or another creature) to give you extra stats until the end of your turn. However, there is a catch to the ability: Since it is treated like a spell, it can be counter-spells and instant spells relatively easily.
When does the new set appear? Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms will first be available in the online game Magic the Gathering: Arena, where it is on July 8, 2021 appears. Those who prefer to collect real cards will find the new booster packs and card sets from July 23, 2021 at the (online) retailer of your choice.
