The 2021 release schedule features a few surprises, and the return of popular product lines to the Magic brand. In Q1, WotC starts the year with Kaldheim, a brand new plane to the Magic Multiverse. It is followed by the return of the Time Spiral block (see "Wizards Springs Surprise With 'Time Spiral'") in Time Spiral: Remastered. In Q2, another new plane arrives called Strixhaven: School of Mages, which sounds eerily like something out of a Harry Potter book.
The big new from the 2021 releases is a D&D branded Magic: The Gathering set called Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. D&D have crossed paths before on the roleplaying side of the brand (see "'Dungeons & Dragons' Travels to the 'Magic: The Gathering' Plane of Theros in New Sourcebook"), but this is the first time D&D has entered the realm of TCGs since Spellfire in 1994. If this brand crossover succeeds, it could open up several D&D worlds to join the Magic Multiverse. The year rounds out with Modern Horizons 2, and two Innistrad sets: Innistrad: Werewolves and Innistrad: Vampires.
On an additional note, one of the products absent from their release schedule is a Core Set 2022. WotC has released a Core Set every year since bringing this product line back with Core Set 2019 (see "'Dominaria,' 'Core Set 2019' and 'Challenger Decks' "). Now, it seems the Core Sets have been abandoned once again, even if temporarily.
