All artifacts are magical items, but not all magical items are artifacts. In Dungeons and Dragons, there exist magical items that carry immense magical power. These items could have been created by the gods, or by tremendously powerful mortals for a specific purpose. \n \nMaybe these items were created to destroy entire kingdoms or save entire civilizations. Perhaps they were created to influence the entire multiverse. Whatever the case, these magical items carry the weight of whatever pivotal moment in history they were created for, and shouldn’t be used lightly. \n \nMythic Odysseys of Theros adds 5 new magical artifacts to the D&D universe, each tied to the specific god that made them, or for whom they were made. As it so happens, since Theros is first and foremost a Magic: the Gathering world, these artifacts also exist as MTG cards. \n \nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=uBo8hPRGyEo \n \nIn any case, these artifacts shouldn’t be given out lightly. They all carry substantial magical power that has the ability to unravel campaigns.
