With the full Modern Horizons 2 card image gallery going up today, Gavin Verhey used the latest episode of Good Morning Magic to show off the original cards many of the new cards are referencing.
First up, check out many of the cards that are based off older cards or are referencing particular pieces of cards in Modern Horizons 2.
Next up are some deeper dives with some of the cards and cycles.
This cycle takes the Elemental Incarnations and the use of evoke from Lorwyn and combines them. They also have the effect of iconic spells and abilities in Magic history.
Persist was a keyword from Shadowmoor, so the art shows a Kithkin coming back from the dead.
The red version is imitating Chandra so the black one is imitating Liliana.
Shows the same character from the cycle of cards from Commander 2017.
The showcase variant of Imperial Recruiter shows images of Kiki-Jiki and Pestermite in the art as a reference to the card being able to fetch both combo pieces in Cube.
Modern Horizons 2 is currently scheduled to release on June 18. View our Official Preview Gallery.
