Earlier today, IO9 revealed the three new Chandra cards from Magic: The Gathering's Core Set 2020 and each card has a different rarity, making fans wonder if there will be other Planeswalkers with three different rarity cards in the upcoming set. Now, Wizards of the Coast has clarified that Chandra is the only Planeswalker getting three different rarity cards. 

Over on Twitter, the official Magic: The Gathering account explained: "After following some of the conversation today, we wanted to clarify: Chandra is the only Planeswalker in getting an uncommon and rare card - she's the face of the set and her journey is all over . All the other Planeswalkers are going to be mythic rare cards."

Some Magic: The Gathering sets have a mix of Rare and Mythic Rare Planeswalker cards but it looks like the designers of Wizards of the Coast are limiting the amount of Planeswalker cards in the upcoming set since War of the Spark just released 36 different Planeswalkers of different rarities plus the Buy-a-Box promo. The tweet also confirms that Chandra is not the only Planeswalker featured in Core Set 2020 but I don't expect them to release more than five Planeswalkers because there's already a lot of them in Magic's current Standard format.

It looks like Wizards of the Coast is putting Chandra Nalaar in the spotlight more these days. Not only is she featured in the packaging of Core Set 2020 but she's also featured in the poster of the upcoming Magic: The Gathering animated Netflix series.


Core Set 2020 is set to be released on July 12, 2019. Core Set 2020 is also coming to Magic Arena, with preorders for the set opening in the game later this week on June 13. The Core Set 2020 bundle in Arena includes a mythic rare Planeswalker card for Chandra as a bonus.
