Modern Horizons Prerelease Info!

The dust has barely settled from the War of the Spark and yet already there's something shiny and new on the horizon. Join us June 8-9 as we draft and sealed our way through a first look at Magic's first standard skipping set!

What is Modern Horizons?

As the name implies, Modern Horizons is the first set in Magic's history to skip the standard format. As a result cards found inside these packs will be Modern legal after the set releases on Friday June 15th.

Previously, cards could only enter Modern if they were introduced in standard legal sets. Other supplementary sets such as Battlebond and Conspiracy introduced new cards that could easily have made it into that format, but because of the prevailing set policies of the time they were only legal in Legacy or Vintage.

What to expect in Modern Horizons?

Previews are coming out daily, but in general expect cards that are a step above the power level you might see in a set like Ravnica Allegiance. Reprints of popular legacy cards such as Flusterstorm are also possible. Here's a few recently spoiled cards, but for a full list of spoilers and where to find them, Wizards has you covered!

Modern Horizons Prerelease Information

Drafting Beyond the Prerelease!

Can't make it to our prerelease? Well, how do your Tuesdays look?

We'll offer Modern Horizons drafts as an option on Friday June 15th to celebrate the set's release. After that we'll be spicing up our Tuesday night magic drafts with Modern Horizons, but our Friday Night Magic drafts will stay War of the Spark. After all variety is the spice of life and we think this will make for a fun month of drafting!
