Khans of Tarkir is the 65th 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 {W}{B}{G} Endurance Outlast Scale of the dragon Anafenza, the Foremost
The Jeskai Way {U}{R}{W} Cunning Prowess Eye of the dragon Narset, Enlightened Master
The Sultai Brood {B}{G}{U} Ruthlessness Delve Fang of the dragon Sidisi, Brood Tyrant
The Mardu Horde {R}{W}{B} Speed Raid Wing of the dragon Zurgo Helmsmasher
The Temur Frontier {G}{U}{R} Savagery Ferocious Claw of the dragon Surrak Dragonclaw

Each clan features their own mechanic, and morph is the sixth mechanic.
