There’s a group of Modern Horizons returning in Modern Horizons 2 but you can only find them in one place.
Modern Horizons 2 will offer players and collectors various treatments of Magic: The Gathering cards that will be featured in the upcoming straight-to-Modern expansion, and Wizards of the Coast already confirmed that it will have traditional foils, foil-etched, borderless alternate-art, showcase sketch, retro frames, and foil retro frames. Some of these treatments will only be available in certain Modern Horizons 2 products like Collector Boosters and Set Boosters, so to an average consumer, it may be hard to figure out which product offers which versions.
Even Cardboard Crack made a new comic strip about this:
On Thursday, Wizards of the Coast gave us our first look at a couple of returning cards from the first Modern Horizons with the retro frame treatment: Force of Negation and Giver of Runes.

Wizards of the Coast revealed that there will be a group of returning Modern Horizons cards in Modern Horizons 2 with retro frames and foil-etched treatment, but you can only find them in Modern Horizons 2 Collector Boosters.
Here are the contents of a Modern Horizons 2 Collector Booster:
Non-foil retro frame cards can still be found in Draft and Set Boosters, but you won’t find the returning Modern Horizons cards there. Traditional foil versions have a chance to show up in any of the booster types, while the foil-etched versions will be exclusive to Collector Boosters.
