The popular card game, Magic: The Gathering, has been a major part of tabletop gaming for over 25 years, since it debuted in 1993. Throughout the years, the Wizards of the Coast game has released over 100 sets between expansions and core sets, totaling in thousands upon thousands of cards.
With MTG’s next set, Double Masters, Wizards of the Coast is reprinting fan favorite cards with brand-new art. There will be 332 cards in the upcoming set, which arrives in stores on August 7, 2020. Wizards of the Coast gave GameSpot an early look at some of the upcoming cards, which you can check out below.
All of the showcase cards–the ones without borders–were drawn by artist Mark Tedin. The Urza trio is really important to the game if you’re trying to build up a mana pool. Sure, it’s all colorless mana, but if you have all three of the cards in play, you can add seven colorless to your pool per turn by tapping these cards. And that mana can come in handy if you’re casting something like Fireball or any other spell that takes X colorless mana to strengthen it.
For Double Masters, booster packs will consist of 15 cards–with two rares and two foils in each pack, Two non-foil showcase cards will be included in each booster box, which consists of 24 booster packs. Double Masters will arrive one day earlier than the physical release date for Magic Online, and boosters will be $7 each.
