Aaron Forsythe reveals the rarity of reprints in Modern Horizons 2
The first week of official Modern Horizons 2 previews kicked off today with more new Magic: The Gathering cards revealed, but just like the first Modern Horizons set released in 2019, the upcoming straight-to-Modern set will also feature some reprints that are new to Modern Constructed format, and it looks like players will have a good chance of getting them in Modern Horizons 2 boosters.
Wizards of the Coast’s Aaron Forsythe recently confirmed on Twitter that there is one new-to-Modern reprint per Modern Horizons 2 booster pack, and that they will never take up the normal rare slot. According to Forsythe, Limited balance influence these decisions.
A good portion of Modern Horizons 2 will feature reprints (about 30% or less), so this probability makes sense. The set will also feature reprints of cards from the first Modern Horizons set, but in retro frame and foil-etched versions. However, fans can only find these kinds of reprints from Modern Horizons 2 Collector Booster boxes, which are now available to pre-order on TCGPlayer and Amazon.
If you’re excited for Modern Horizons 2, you can now preorder Draft Boosters, Collector Boosters, Set Boosters, and Bundles online .
Modern Horizons 2 is scheduled to release on June 18, 2021. The official preview season for Modern Horizons 2 is set to begin, and you can check out the list of outlets where you can find them here. You can check out spoiler section here.
