WotC Announces Next Four Standard-Legal Magic Sets

Learn more about the Standard-legal Magic sets coming in 2022.

The Magic: the Gathering showcase stream announced the next four Standard-legal sets coming in 2022, featuring one new plane and a return to two others.

After 2021 wraps up with Innistrad: Midnight Hunt and Innistrad: Crimson Vow, Magic will return to Kamigawa with Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty to kick off 2022.

Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty revisits the plane of Kamigawa 2,000 years after the happenings and story of the first block. The set has a cyber-ninja setting with a new planeswalker pictured above and the emperor is rumored to be a familiar character.

Next up, Magic is taking its crack at a gangster movie setting with Streets of New Capenna.

New Capenna is a modern crime city with significance to Elspeth that was originally built by angels but has since been taken over by demon crime families. The set follows five three-color families, matching the shards for the first time since Shards of Alara.

The third set on the schedule for 2022 is Dominaria United!

To celebrate Magic’s 30th anniversary, we’re going back to Dominaria. The classic fantasy world of many of Magic’s greatest stories and sets will play host to not only Dominaria United, but also the fourth set of 2022 — The Brothers War!

We’re going back in time for a first-person view of The Brothers War with a story focused on the feud between Urza and Mishra. The set will feature awesome artifacts and war machines that show off the story featured originally in Antiquities.

With a new Standard-legal set for each quarter, there is plenty of Magic to look forward to in 2022. What set are you most excited to play?
