Jumpstart is a new way to play Magic that mashes together themes from throughout the history of the game and lets you skip the deckbuilding part. Grab two boosters, shuffle them into a 40-card deck, and start playing. The set contains almost 500 reprints but also introduces 37 new cards that were designed to help fill out some of the themes. These will not be Standard-, Pioneer-, or Modern-legal cards, but will be legal in Eternal formats (Legacy, Vintage, and Commander). 120 or so cards are from Core Set 2021, and more than 400 reprints are from sets before Core Set 2021. Jumpstart cards on MTG Arena will be legal in Historic and is expected to be a little different from the paper release.

All spoilers, previews and cards from Jumpstart will be here! Previews start June 17, 2020.
