Wizards of the Coast announced four brand-new Standard sets scheduled for release in 2022.
The first Standard set coming out in 2022 is Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty, which will arrive in Q1. It is set 2000 years after the first Kamigawa set in fantasy cyberpunk world. This set features a new Emperor of Kamigawa as well as a new cyber-ninja planeswalker.
Then, WotC dives into a new setting called Streets of New Capenna
for Q2. It features a city built by angels that is now ruled by demon crime families. This fantasy noir setting was also noted as having "special meaning" to the planeswalker Elspeth.
For Magic: The Gathering's
30th anniversary, WotC returns to Dominaria in Q3. Dominaria United
showcases the iconic heroes and villains that are rooted in Magic
's original plane in new Standard rotation cards.
The Q4 set will take Magic
back to the lore of one of its first expansions, Antiquities
. The Brothers War
tells the story of the battles between Urza and Mishra that devastated the plane of Dominaria. The story for this set was hinted via the archaeological evidence found in Antiquities
set, and will feature epic war machines and clockwork contraptions.
