- Dominaria is the 78th Magic expansion. It will be released on April 27, 2018.
Dominaria is the first set to follow the Three-and-One Model, which abolished blocks. Richard Garfield is on the design team, for the first time since the original Innistrad set. The set takes us back to on the plane of the same name, for the first time since the Time Spiral block. Returning legendary characters are, among others, Teferi, Jhoira and Karn. Dominaria’s story starts right after the events of Hour of Devastation. Gideon and Liliana have arrived on Dominaria following the Gatewatch’s defeat at the hands of Nicol Bolas. Together, they begin a mission to kill Belzenlok, the final demon holding Liliana’s contract.
The set features the return of the Kicker keyword ability, and debuts legendary sorcery cards that capture extraordinary moments from main characters' pasts. These powerful spells can be unleashed only with the assistance of a legendary creature or planeswalker in play on your side of the battlefield. Dominaria also set introduces a new enchantment subtype: Saga. Each Saga tells the story of a key event from the past as it unfolds during each of the player's turns. As the Saga enters the battlefield and after the player's draw step, they add a lore counter. Sagas are sacrificed after the third chapter ability has triggered.
