Next up for Magic: The Gathering is War of the Spark and Core 2020
February 22, 20191 min read
Magic: The Gathering is still trucking along with its "every several months" set releases, and next up on the agenda is War of the Spark (the kinda Ravnica kinda not set) and Core 2020 (which brings back the Core line after Wizards originally brought it back for 2019 in 2018: confused yet?).
For those of you who are unaware, War of the Spark is expected to settle up a lot of the story beats from the past two Ravnica sets and will likely be Planeswalker (read: the big names of Magic lore, usually represented with powerful hero-like Planeswalker cards) heavy. In Magic, "core" sets are an opportunity to bring back old cards without having to be beholden to a theme.
As usual all of this will hit Magic Arena, likely a week or so before the launch of the actual cards. Pre-release for War of the Spark will be held on April 27-28 and Core 2020 is set to arrive in July.
