Ixalan is the 76th Magic expansion, and the first in the Ixalan block. It will be released on September 29, 2017 and is a large expansion. Unfurl your sails, saddle up a dinosaur, and battle your rivals as you embark on a journey to claim the plane’s greatest fortune for yourself! For centuries, the untamed jungles of Ixalan have hidden a coveted secret: Orazca, the city of gold.

There are at least two new named mechanics in this set: Explore (Reveal the top card of your library. Put that card into your hand if it's a land. Otherwise, put a +1/+1 counter on this creature, then put the card back on top or into your graveyard) and Enrage (Whenever a creature with this ability word is dealt damage, it has some consequences). Meanwhile, Raid returns from Khans of Tarkir and Crew from the Kaladesh block. Vehicles have the form of pirate ships. Ixalan introduces the Treasure artifact subtype and the reinstatement of the Dinosaur creature type.
