That wasn’t all that was announced, D&D Adventures in the Forgotten Realms‘ release is also delayed by a week. With release date expecting to drop on July 23 instead of the original July 16 date.
Replacing the usual Core Set this year, D&D Adventures in the Forgotten Realms will be the first crossover set in Magic‘s history. Although it won’t follow the Magic multiverse canonically, there’s a lot of potentials to see unique D&D items and characters feature within the set. Such as back in Core Set 2020, we saw Bag of Holding feature as a nod to the popular tabletop RPG.
Either way, it’s pretty exciting to see how these to sets will shape up Magic: The Gathering’s future going forward.
