Modern Horizons is a Magic booster set which will be released on June 14, 2019.[4] Modern Horizons is the Innovation Product for 2019, and is designed to be drafted.

Set details[edit | edit source]

This set introduces new cards into Modern without them ever being legal in Standard. It contains new cards and only reprints which are currently not legal in Modern.[5] For this, it was rigorously playtested by Play Design.[6] In addition there are five basic lands, and a Buy-a-Box card which is also a new-to-Modern reprint. The powerful new card options, some with old mechanics, are mixed with flavorful updates for favorite characters.[7]

Marketing[edit | edit source]

Modern Horizons will be printed for as long as demand holds.[8] It will release on Magic Online on June 13, with a booster price of $6.99 (regular booster packs cost $3.99). It will not be featured on MTG Arena.

Prerelease[edit | edit source]

Prerelease takes place on June 8–9, 2019.
