Magic: The Gathering 2021 Release Schedule
Magic: The Gathering has announced the exciting product release schedule for 2021 during the Zendikar Rising debut stream! While not all of them applies to MTG Arena directly, here is everything we know so far.
- Release date: Q1 2021
The first main expansion to be released in 2021, Kaldheim is Magic’s take on what a world inspired by Vikings might look like. We have seen glimpses of the world before, most notably via the Planechase card Skybreen.
- Release date: Q2 2021
Strixhaven is the most elite University in the Multiverse and is “unlike anything we’ve done before”. It features five colleges, which battle it out with their own take on magic.
- Release date: Q3 2021
We first saw the Godzilla promotional crossover in Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths, but this time the two IPs meet for an epic collaboration for the entirety of a Standard set. It is set in the world of Dungeons & Dragons and it will be released in place of what would normally be a Core Set.
- Release date: Q4 2021
In the latter part of 2021, we are going back to Innistrad for the third time, and we will have two full sets dedicated to it. While the set names are not final, the first set will feature Werewolves, and the second will focus on Vampires – where we will even see a Vampire wedding! There are still four Standard sets per rotation-year, but the timing has been shifted around slightly with more details to follow.
Time Spiral Remastered
- Release date: Q1/Q2 2021
Time Spiral Remastered will be a new way to experience the original Time Spiral block – Time Spiral, Planar Chaos and Future Sight. Similar to Amonkhet Remastered, the set will be curated for draft experience. Unfortunately, it will be a paper and MTG Online only release and will not be available on MTG Arena. One card per pack will be in the old card frame, and three of them were revealed to show what they look like:
Modern Horizons 2
- Release date: Q3/Q4 2021
Modern Horizons is a paper-only set that introduces new cards into the Modern format without them ever being legal for Standard. It was confirmed that this second set will feature all five enemy fetch lands at rare rarity!
