The upcoming Magic: The Gathering set Modern Horizons is bringing back a lot of familiar mechanics like Ninjutsu, Suspend, Buyback, and more. Wizards of the Coast already revealed that each pack of Modern Horizons will contain a full-art snow-covered basic land (as you can see below) and now, more new "snow" cards from the upcoming straight-to-Modern set have been revealed. 

Check out the new snow cards below: 

This reminds me of the card "Chained to the Rocks". For only one mana to cast, you can exile a creature but you need to have a snow land to enchant so you can play this card. 

Here's a decent Sorcery card that can be more devastating if you have more snow permanents. 

English translation: 

Arcum's Astrolabe - {S}

Snow Artifact

When ~ enters the battlefield, draw a card.

{1}, T; Add one mana of any color.

The Ice Age has ended, but his relics still lie asleep in New Argive


Here's a 2/2 Golem artifact creature that you can cast with one snow mana. 

It would be interesting to see if Modern Horizons will give birth to new archetypes in the Modern format. Maybe Skred decks will get an update or maybe we'll see a new viable snow deck that could dominate Modern. We'll have to wait and see the rest of the snow cards to determine if that's the case. 

What do you think about these new snow cards from Modern Horizons? Share your thoughts in the comments section below. 

Modern Horizons will be released on June 14. Prerelease events will take place on June 8 and 9. The prerelease events will be Draft, not Sealed. Modern Horizons events on Magic Online start on June 6.
