Lots of cool things coming out of Announcement Week over at Wizards of the Coast. Aside from seeing the banning of Aetherworks Marvel and the return to Core sets, we are now getting some news about the 25th Anniversary of the game we all love so well. Check out the video announcement.
Here are some of the highlights, taken directly from the announcement:
Brave the Unknown as you venture to the new world of Ixalan, where all we know so far is that Pirate Vraska battles Dinosaurs. But do you need anything more? Find out when Ixalan releases September 29.
Stake you claim on January 19, 2018, as the second set in Ixalan block releases with Rivals of Ixalan.
Explorers of Ixalan is an out-of-the-box multiplayer Magic experience that challenges you to defeat your opponents along the way as you search for the lost city. Begin your exploration November 24, 2017.
From the Vault: Transformation takes the From the Vault series and, well, flips it. From the Vault: Transform, which releases Nov. 24, 2017, collects 15 of our favorite transforming cards, each with its own story to tell.
On April 28, 2018, we look to the past to move forward as we return to Dominaria with our next large set!
As part of our celebration of our 25th anniversary, we will be releasing a 25th anniversary-edition Masters set on March 16, 2018. The product will contain 249 cards from across Magic’s entire history and will provide a drafting experience like previous Masters products. Available in English, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese.
We’re (finally) traveling back to the wacky world of silver-bordered cards when Unstable releases Dec. 8, 2017.
