Owners of new NFT land plots will play a pivotal role in Blockchain Brawlers’ Player-versus-Player ecosystem designed in collaboration with Magic: The Gathering creator Richard Garfield.
Blockchain Brawlers, a non-fungible token (NFT) gaming project built on the World Asset Exchange (WAX) blockchain, today unveils a new feature for its highly anticipated Player-versus-Player (PvP) mode. The feature will allow users to become an integral part of the ecosystem by acting as producers of crucial in-game assets.
Developed in collaboration with Richard Garfield, creator of wildly popular and trendsetting fantasy card game Magic: The Gathering (MTG), Blockchain Brawlers’ new mode is a whole “game within a game” layer that would allow players to battle each other in exciting, interactive PvP matches.
“It is one of the most forward-thinking and independent features we have ever built for Blockchain Brawlers. We designed it very much like a standalone game all in itself, as opposed to a supporting act, so this goes beyond a lot of what we have previously designed for the game,” said Michael Rubinelli, chief games officer at WAX Studios.
“To help facilitate it, land owners will be able to produce assets and trade or exchange them with other players, acting as fully-fledged content producers in Blockchain Brawlers.”

A total of 1,100 NFT land plots will be put up for sale — ranging in price between $2,500 (“Platinum Version”) and $5,000 (“Diamond Version''). The Diamond plots exceeded expectations, and have already sold out. The Platinum plot sale kicks off this Wednesday the 20th at 7am PDT and will run for 24 hours or until sold out.
In return for their investment, landowners can use BRWL (Blockchain Brawlers’ native tokens) to craft content packs with essential items such as new cards for players’ decks, additional attacks, taunts, emotes, finishing moves, and more — akin to the so-called “booster packs'' in MTG itself.
Land plots in Blockchain Brawlers will be much more than just empty virtual spaces — they will also act as “factories” via which owners can produce virtual assets they can trade, exchange, gift, or use themselves.
The items crafted will also come in different rarity — from “Common” to “Legendary” — with a chance of producing ultra-rare foil versions of in-game cards. Naturally, the more expensive land plots will also offer better output to their owners — 25 NFT packs per day from a “Diamond” plot versus ten packs from a “Platinum” one — thus incentivizing the ownership of these plots and spurring demand within the in-game economy.
As an additional bonus, land plots in Blockchain Brawlers will also grant their owners an elevated status when the game expands into multi-chain metaverse experiences in the future.
Michael Rubinelli added, “We have a saying that drives us: ‘Utility on WAX, liquidity everywhere.’ Since WAX is the unquestioned technological leader in Web3 gaming, we like to showcase this core gamer-centric experience to anyone interested in objectively great gaming offerings tied to the benefit of asset ownership. We are singularly driven by the notion that players should own outright what they craft, trade for, buy or anything that drops for them in game to do with as they please. The future of all gaming is heading into a Player to Player economy and we are leading the way”
