Ixalan Magic: The Gathering Spoilers, Singles, Boosters & Card List
Set Name: Ixalan
Release Date: September 23rd-24th, 2017 (to be confirmed)
Release Date: September 29, 2017
Spoiler season normally starts about 3 weeks before the prerelease date, on the Monday. The prerelease date for Ixalan is September 23rd-24th, 2017, which means that preview season for Ixalan should officially start around Monday 4th September 2017, although do expect a small number of cards to be previewed the week before then.
“The fall set is named Ixalan, and will be releasing on September 29, 2017. It will be legal for the 2017 World Championship’s Standard and Limited play. Pro Tour Ixalan is November 3–5, 2017. This also means that Grand Prix Providence and Shizuoka will both be Team Sealed GPs as part of the release weekend.
We’re excited to reveal the name and release date for the fall set, which will be the start of a new block and lead to a fresh new Standard Constructed format. That set’s name is Ixalan, and it will be released on September 29 later this year.”
“For many of our players, this will come as a surprise, since the Pro Tour scheduled around this set will take place November 3–5, rather than two weeks after the new set’s release. We’re trying something different with this set, and are instead timing the 2017 Magic: The Gathering World Championship, which will be just one week after Ixalan’s release, to highlight the new set. This is an experiment to see how utilizing the World Championship to highlight a new Standard fares, and we will be seeking feedback once the schedule bears itself out.
More details regarding Ixalan will be revealed during the big June announcement we will be making, so check back then for more. We’ll also have more info on the World Championship as our 2016–17 season nears its conclusion.”
