- Magic expansion, and the first in the Khans of Tarkir block. It was released on September 26, 2014. Khans of Tarkir is a large expansion.
The set was previewed at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, July 26, 2014. Mark Rosewater (Magic head designer) moderated a panel featuring Mark Purvis (Magic director of global brand marketing), Doug Beyer (Magic senior creative designer), and Gavin Verhey (Magic designer).
The Khans block will be Large-Small-Large with a unique draft structure (small set is drafted with both large sets). Tarkir is a plane of five warring clans, each worshipping one aspect of extinct dragons. The clans will be represented through enemy wedge colors and aspects as follows:
Name Colors Dragon Aspect Mechanic Symbol Khan The Abzan Houses Endurance Outlast Scale of the dragon Anafenza, the Foremost The Jeskai Way Cunning Prowess Eye of the dragon Narset, Enlightened Master The Sultai Brood Ruthlessness Delve Fang of the dragon Sidisi, Brood Tyrant The Mardu Horde Speed Raid Wing of the dragon Zurgo Helmsmasher The Temur Frontier Savagery Ferocious Claw of the dragon Surrak Dragonclaw
Each clan features their own mechanic, and morph is the sixth mechanic.
