MTG Ravnica Remastered release date is rapidly approaching. While 2024 does have an awful lot in store, there’s obviously only one place to start. The first MTG set to be released in 2024 is Ravnica Remastered.
Following on from Dominaria Remastered in 2023, this reprint set has a unique planar focus. Only reprinting cards from the Ravnica block, this set has a lot of compelling potential. To spice things up beyond the remastered flavor, however, there are also oodles of cart treatments and value to enjoy!
Thanks to being the next set on the horizon, currently, there’s a boatload of information about Ravnica Remastered to digest. In fact, the set was recently spoiled in its entirety ahead of the holiday break. So, if you want to know about all things Ravnica Remastered, we’ve got you covered! Here’s everything you need to know.
MTG Ravnica Remastered Details
To start, we should go over precisely what Ravnica Remastered is. Thankfully, this is fairly easy to do, as the name describes almost everything about the set. So, as you might expect, Ravnica Remastered is a Remastered version of the sets that have taken place on Ravnica. Currently, nine MTG sets have taken place on this plane. Despite this important detail, Ravnica Remastered draws from a list of 14 total sets.
Similar to past Remastered releases, Ravnica Remastered will take all the best bits from these myriad sets to make something new. By extension, this means that the set will be entirely comprised of reprints. As usual, this means the set should boast some impressive value to delight value-hungry and or thrifty players.
For better or worse, while Ravnica Remastered will be comprised of reprints, it isn’t all about them. Instead, the set is first and foremost for the Draft experience. Thanks to this, there may be plenty of odd inclusions that stand out as weird choices. Hopefully, however, this should make the set incredibly enjoyable to play.
Unfortunately, while MTG Arena has had Remastered sets in the past, it will not be getting Ravnica Remastered. Considering the digital client is still on the path to Pioneer, this may be disappointing to hear. Thankfully, however, Wizards has committed to getting a tournament playable version of the format on Arena by late 2024.
While it seems that MTG Arena players are stuck waiting for their next remastered release, Magic Online players aren’t so unlucky. Following past precedent, Ravnica Remastered should be released on Magic Online to accompany the paper set.
MTG Ravnica Remastered Release Date

With the First Look and spoiler season completely behind us, the only thing left to look forward to is the release date. So, to make everything nice and simple, here are all the dates you need to know for Ravnica Remastered!

MTG Ravnica Remastered Spoilers
As we mentioned earlier, Ravnica Remastered has already been spoiled in its entirety. Miraculously, this happened over the course of just two days. Thanks to Tolarian Community College and Wizards, this has given MTG players an awful lot to digest about the set. With 291 regular cards and 176 showcase treatments, just saying a lot might be putting it lightly.
Unfortunately, since there are so many cards, reprints, and art treatments to go over, we can’t really cover them all here. What we can do, however, is provide handy dandy links to our other articles. The below articles cover all the best that Ravnica Remastered has to offer, so if you’re interested, read on below!

- New Remastered Set Features Full MTG Shock Land Cycle and Anime Art!
If you’re after a heavily simplified version of spoiler season, the main draw is the Shock Land reprints. Alongside this iconic land cycle, there are also plenty of Commander staples, anime art, and even serialized cards! While all this is terribly exciting, unfortunately, there is a little problem is value. With a suite of lackluster mythics, not every MTG player is totally blown away by the set’s contents and expected value.
MTG Ravnica Remastered Booster Fun
As is to be expected of every MTG product nowadays, Ravnica Remastered has a number of Booster Fun treatments available. The most ubiquitous of these will be the Retro Frame cards, which celebrate the remastered Set’s heritage. Found within both Draft and Collector Boosters, you can expect this card style to be absolutely everywhere, so I hope you enjoy it!
Alongside the classic Retro Frame cards, Ravnica Remastered also has Borderless Cards to collect. Appearing in most MTG sets, this Booster Fun treatment is hardly out of the ordinary. This time around, however, it’s worth paying attention to since there are “borderless versions of all ten shock lands.”
As if that wasn’t enough already, Ravnica Remastered will also have Borderless Anime Cards to collect. Currently, it’s unclear how many cards in the set will get the Borderless Anime Card treatment. One thing is for certain, however. Due to the popularity of this art style, these are likely to be the chase cards in the set.
Last, but certainly no means least, Serialized cards are making a return for Ravnica Remastered. Found, as usual, within Collector Boosters at a 1% chance, there are 64 retro frame serialized cards to collect. Within these 64 cards, there are serialized versions of all the Shock Lands, as well as Ravnica Icons like Niv-Mizzet, Parun. While the luster of serialized cards has been slowly fading, this treatment will undoubtedly still be the most expensive.
MTG Ravnica Remastered Products
In an unusual twist for a modern MTG set, Ravnica Remastered doesn’t have a billion different products to purchase. Instead, this set is having a remarkably lean release, with only two products available! This follows the trend set by Dominaria Remastered last year which also only featured two products.
While there might not be a lot to go over, here’s what you can expect to find within both the Ravnica Remastered products when they launch next year.
