"Pirates vs. Dinosaurs" is the theme of the newest Magic: The Gathering expansion, Ixalan. This is the first of the two sets in the Ixalan block, which includes 269 brand new cards. This will also be the final two-set block, and in the future all sets will be standalone.
Ixalan is also the first set to be presented in the next digital product from Wizards of the Coast -- MtG Arena. So it's a really special set for all involved, as it will launch the whole new era for Magic: The Gathering designers and fans alike.
The overall power level of Ixalan relies enitrely on giant Dinosaurs, but it looks like other types of creatures also have something to offer. So let's dive into this unusual blend of cards and figure out which of them will dominate the Sealed format in the coming months.
Ixalan will be released digitally on Spetember 23 and in print form on September 28.
