Posted March 1st 2019 by Rahvin

'Magic: The Gathering - Modern Horizons'


For the first time, a new Magic:  The Gathering set will skip over Standard tournament legality and head straight into Modern when Wizards of the Coast releases Modern Horizons on June 14.Modern Horizons will include a total of 254 cards, including both new cards and reprints of cards that are currently not legal in the Modern format.  The cards will be sold in 15-card booster packs, with each pack containing 1 rare or mythic rare, 3 uncommon, 10 common, and 1 basic land card.

A Draft Prerelease Weekend event will be held to promote the new set during the weekend of June 8 and 9.

Last month, Wizards of the Coast announced that it would no longer set MSRP for new Magic releases (see “‘Magic:  The Gathering’ Drops MSRPS”).  The company will be selling Modern Horizons boosters for Magic Online at $6.99.

In August, Wizards will release a new Core Set and Commander Decks (see “‘Magic:  The Gathering – Core Set 2020’ and ‘Commander 2019’”).
