In 2019, Magic released Modern Horizons: a set that redefined the Modern format. With brand-new card designs and carefully-curated reprints from pre-2003, Modern Horizons expanded Modern’s card pool and created new format archetypes and staples.
Now, a new direct-to-Modern set is on the horizon. Modern Horizons 2 is coming June 11, 2021. Here’s all the info you need to know about the set.
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM MH2?
Like the original Modern Horizons, Modern Horizons 2 will contain a mix of reprints and new cards designed specifically for Modern. However, while the 2019 set pulled all its reprints from sets that were not legal in Modern, Modern Horizons 2 will contain reprints of cards that are already Modern-legal. When they announced Modern Horizons 2 on their Zendikar Rising stream last fall, Wizards of the Coast confirmed that the five Zendikar fetchlands — Arid Mesa, Marsh Flats, Misty Rainforest, Scalding Tarn, and Verdant Catacombs — would be reprinted in the set.
We also expect Modern Horizons 2 to be designed for draft, just like its predecessor. The set’s release is set for June, which may be too soon to get eight people together for a draft, but squirreling away a booster box for the future is always a good idea.
MODERN HORIZONS 2 PRODUCTS
Speaking of booster boxes, the WPN has provided us some info on what products we can expect from MH2.
In addition to Draft Booster Boxes, Modern Horizons 2 will also feature Set Boosters and Collector Boosters. We’re excited to see what special treatment we’ll see on some of those Collector Booster cards!
MODERN HORIZONS 2 PRERELEASE EVENTS
Modern Horizons 2 will also have its own Prerelease Weekend events. Prerelease packs will include six booster packs of Modern Horizons 2, as well as a promo card.
