Amonkhet Remastered Expansion Overview

Amonkhet Remastered

Amonkhet Remastered combines the set-defining cards and iconic mechanics you remember from both the Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation expansions, but with updated gameplay to make this a fun and fresh experience on MTG Arena. The combined card count from across these two sets has landed at 338 cards, with a focus on the Limited play experience (Draft and Sealed), the upcoming Pioneer format, and continued support for Historic.

  • There are 14 special cards included in the set that are not part of the main Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation expansions aimed at supporting and further differentiating Historic from other formats. 5 of these are from Amonkhet Invocations and the rest comes with brand new artwork depicting what they would have looked like had they originally been introduced on to Amonkhet:
