Fans of the game Magic: The Gathering received some exciting news this past weekend during the broadcast of Grand Prix Indy. That’s when Wizards of The Coast announced the spring set – Shadows Over Innistrad.

This makes sense since the company has made it clear they would like to keep revisiting previous planes. The most recent set, Battle For Zendikar, did the same thing.


For those of you who don’t remember, Innistrad was the home of werewolves, vampires, and other dark creatures. It was also home to some of the most powerful cards in the game today. Some of those included Snapcaster Mage, Liliana of the Veil, Delver of Secrets, and much more.



The rest of the block included Dark Ascension and Avacyn Restored. However, under the new formatting, there will only be one other set in the Shadows Over Innistrad block. Here is some additional information and dates regarding the set:

Number of Cards: 297
Prerelease Events: April 2, 2016
Release Date: April 8, 2016
