Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC), take a look at five more Classes coming in Adventures in the Forgotten Realms!

The Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Mechanics article fleshes out the new enchantment type and previews three new Classes, including a rare that shows the new type isn’t limited to one rarity.

Warlock Class looks to power up decks focused on sacrificing creatures and draining opponents incrementally. The second level even provides some cart selection while filling your graveyard, leading up to a third level that effectively doubles the amount of life loss opponents take on your turn.

Ranger Class is the first rare in the new type we get to see and also the first to cost more than one mana. It immediately gives you a 2/2 green Wolf token making the next two levels pure value. Once you sink two more mana into it you get to put a +1/+1 counter on a creature whenever you attack. For four more mana you get the classic green ability of looking at the top card of your library and being able to cast creature spells from the top of your library.

Wizard Class is another uncommon, one-mana Class that starts off with the “no maximum hand size” ability seen on cards like Reliquary Tower and Spellbook. For three more mana you draw two cards and for five mana you get to add +1/+1 counters to a creature you control whenever you draw a card.

Melissa DeTora also previewed two more Classes in her article about the new enchantment type.

Bard Class is another rare and the first multicolor Class revealed. The first level makes your legendary creatures bigger when you cast them and the second level makes your legendary spells cheaper. Once you max out Bard Class, your legendary spells give you some card advantage by being able to play the top two cards of your library for the rest of the turn. Notably, the second two levels mention legendary spells and not just creatures.

Cleric Class is another uncommon, one-mana Class that has a wide range of abilities. Level 1 gives you additional life gain. Level 2 borrows the Ajani’s Pridemate ability of growing a creature after you gain life. And Level 3 is a reanimation effect with an additional lifegain boost.
