Surging Tide
by CanterburyEgg

Showcase Thread

The sequel to 2017 Most Flavorful Set nominee Goliaths of Nangjiao, Surging Tide builds on the previous set's themes with new takes on old mechanics a versatile new spin on morph. Powerful battlecruiser creatures and table-snapping spells abound, and the world of Nangjiao grows deeper even through the narrow lens of flavor text.


Imperial Legacies
by Timespiraled

Set File

Designed from the ground up for Constructed play, Imperial Legacies is a tight, polished package of powerful cards, from workhorse staples to kooky build-arounds and everything in between. Two new mechanics, inscribe and art of war, are given just the right amount of room to breathe in a set that feels at once fresh and reliable.


Xoltan Pre-Modern
by ThisisSakon

Showcase Thread

ThisisSakon returns to an old setting with a brand new take - a Conspiracy-esque draft-matters set with some Constructed-oriented cards! Picking on rivals with the new hunt mechanic makes Xoltan Pre-Modern a uniquely political experience, and a strong focus on sacrifice and the graveyard gives it a strong identity even outside its draft-focused element.


Plagues of Fretport
by HerziQuerzi

Set File

When so many Magic stories concern the fate of whole worlds itself, it can be refreshing to take a look at a smaller-scale crisis, and Plagues of Fretport offers just that, a close look at a city wracked by plague and those who would work to keep it there. Smart use of -1/-1 counters conveys well the feeling of a society collapsing at the seams.
