Modern Horizons is a Modern legal set that skips Standard, and includes "a bunch of new cards, new designs, never before seen", and will include reprints that are new to Modern. This is a full-sized set made for booster draft and there will be a buy-a-box promo for the new set. The buy-a-box promo will be a reprint that's new to Modern. The buy-a-box promo will be available at the prerelease.



It's a paper product coming to Magic Online but not Magic Arena. There will be 254 cards.
