So, what is Bloomburrow? It’s the 114th expansion card set to be released in MTG‘s running history, and will bring a total of 281 new cards to the game. Each of these cards will also have its own special foil version released as well. The storyline for the expansion pack will be a bit more whimsical, almost Disney-like, as the anthropomorphic animalfolk of Valley must team up to take down the Great Night Owl and their Calamity Beasts to save the world.

New mechanics from the expansion like “Offspring” promise to shake up play standards, though we have little information on how these will play out.

Bloomburrow is set to release on July 30, 2024 on MTG Arena, and will release worldwide in physical format on August 2, 2024. There’s also a local game store prerelease date set for July 26, and a few other preview events you might want to check out (via
