I see many new eyes amid the darkness — as we would expect our numbers to grow during this time of endless moonrise, this… Midnight Hunt.” “But wait!

Ranking the Planes: Where Will Magic Return Next?

Just a few weeks ago, the Magic community was excited by the spoilers from Modern Horizons 2, one of the deepest and most powerful sets of all time.

The world has changed so much in the past 18 months, and a whole new subset of social experiences have helped to shape the pandemic zeitgeist.
