Earlier this week, Wizards of the Coast announced the new Magic: The Gathering products coming in 2022 as well as visual previews for the upcoming MTG Netflix animated series. One of the non Standard-legal Magic sets revealed is Unfinity, which is described as “retro-futuristic meets a space carnival you must see to believe”.
Unfinity Space-Themed Shock Lands Confirmed!
Recently, Magic head designer Mark Rosewater has confirmed on his Blogatog that Unfinity will feature reprints of the Ravnica shocklands but with brand new space-themed art, and they will be full-art.
Will there be a Magic set that will replace the Core Set in 2022?
Fans have been wondering if Wizards of the Coast plan to have another set that will replace the Core Set just like they did this year with Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms replacing the usual Core Set. In a separate Blogatog post, Rosewater revealed that nothing is directly swapping the Core Set next year, and noted that they decided ot try having four premier sets that feature specific worlds.
That will probably be the case for 2023, when The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth™ comes out
Rosewater also said that Core Sets “are gone for now” so don’t expect Wizards of the Coast to release any Core Sets in the next few years.
Will The Brothers’ War take place in the past?
In another Blogatog post, Rosewater confirmed that The Brothers’ War set will feature lore that takes place in the past, and that it will be based on the history that started as a feud between Urza and Mishra that erupted into an all-out war that set into motion the future of Dominaria.
It looks like fans will have a lot of exciting Magic: The Gathering products to be excited about in the near future.
