Magic the gathering is about to start spoiler season for modern horizons. What sort of cards can you expect to see in this set? what kind of mechanics? where does this innovation set fit in the grand scheme of magic?

ST CATHARINES, ON,

Another one mana black instant speed free creature sac outlet. Viscera Seer is great, but we need more enablers for Aristocrats.
Edit: Honestly, if Cabal Therapist is ACTUALLY in the top ten of most powerful cards from the set, the vast majority of the set won't see play. Cabal Therapist is good and all, but it's kinda borderline for Modern already. Compare to War of the Spark, where 20ish cards are seeing play in Modern, Legacy, and/or Vintage already. That doesn't bode well.
For reference, the WotS cards seeing play (fringe or otherwise) are: Gideon (Modern white aggro/Mox Amber legends), Jace (Modern Leveler combo), Davriel (Modern 8+ rack), Vivien (Modern experimentation), Narset (Modern Days Undoing, Legacy Miracles, Vintage everything blue), Ilharg (Modern Goryo's Vengence), Finale of Promise (Modern Phoenix/Living End experimentation), Liliana's Triumph (Legacy Diabolic Edict replacement), Dreadhorde Arcanist (Legacy URx Delver [yes, that's actually happening]), Awaken the Vitu-Ghazi (experimentation in Modern Hardened Scales Affinity), Samut's Sprint (Modern Neoform Grishoalbrand tech), Nicol-Bolas (Modern Control experiments), Domri (Modern Niv-Mizzet control lol), Teferi (Modern UW Control, Legacy Miracles/Infect, Vintage experiments), Niv-Mizzet Reborn (Modern Niv Control, lol again), Dovin's Veto (UW Control in Modern and Legacy), Neoform (One of the new boogiemen in Modern), Ashiok (Modern mill boards), Dovin (Modern Mox Legends prison/taxes), Kiora (Modern Angels by MarenMTG, experimentation), Saheeli (Modern Surge Node combo, testing as alternative for Young Pyro in Modern and Legacy), Bolas's Citadel (Modern testing), Karn (THE boogieman of Modern out of anything that can get to four mana), Ugin (Modern Tron, Legacy Eldrazi), and Blast Zone (Modern Tron, etc.). Basically 10% of the set is seeing eternal play. I have a hard time believing this set - even one designed specifically for eternal play - will see that sort of immediate impact. I think there will be a ton of testing, but unless they really go insane and turn the format into Legacy-lite I think Modern Horizons will have the same impact on Modern as War did and less impact on older formats.
Since they don't want to print already existing modern cards in this set this will increase the prices for all the modern staples... new people will enter modern and want to play already exisiting decks but there is no new supply like snapcasters, death shadows etc. I hope the "best card" is going to be at least counterspell or any other blue counter :)
What's the best place to buy cards online in Canada? There's a lot of shady stuff going on with MTG stores and I figure online is worse so I figured I'd ask a veteran sorry if this doesn't apply to the video... don't know who else to ask also keep up the good work
I don't play modern but i'm really excited for cedh because with the high powerlevel of competitive commander there aren't many sets that can promise new things for my favourite format (even though lately wizards has printed some really strong stuff for it)
I want to think this set will be amazing. I want to trust Wizards to do something awesome. Unfortunately, I wanted to trust them for Iconic Masters and Masters 25, and for the War of The Spark novel, and we all know how those turned out.
WHOOOO!! I didn't realize how much of a thrill and welcome I would get in this video. It was a grand time in the livestream, being reborn and renamed by Uncle Purp himself (despite it being because he couldn't be bothered to pronounce my original name :P )
I get what you're saying.
Parody sets are...funny...(literally) but not canonical lorewise (you knew that) and so your reply is answering my question, but I should have been more clear.
WUBRG is basically all 5 personality traits in OCEAN, combined. All (real world) people are WUBRG (example: Planewide Celebration's citizen token).
So, I am saying that it would be interesting to see how that would pan out in the canonical storyline.
Ps: a planar chaos version of Serra would be badass. Imagining a black, or blue version of Serra. The creator of the Serra Sphinx
I think i want to buy a box of Modern Horizons. Like yourself Mike, ive been around a couple minutes...:)
The next story set is codenamed "Archery" and will be on an entirely new plane. Apparently that one is a set that MaRo has been wanting to make for more than ten years now, at least that's what he said.
As a Modern player, I'm super stoked about Modern Horizons. You are right, it will be great not be locked into one world like Return to the Return to the Return of Ravnica the most boring city in the multiverse. Great content Mike!
Basically. The players came up with the Modern format to avoid the notorious power nine and other broken degenerate garbage. So now Wizards is printing that degenerate garbage with a modern frame to get around the players rules and spoil the format. Same thing happened in Commander. The players made the singleton one hundred card format to limit blue's busted power levels, so Wizards printed a bunch of new broken blue cards to undo the format.
Im still on record as half and half on this set , I'm excited for all the reprints and new takes on cards (serra and cabal, ive heard urza and mishra too.) But double the price for draft chaf and bad interpritations of old favorites (Hey guys heres 2019 it's urza! He drinks starbucks and likes vegan food! Also he identifies as a goat!) , kinda scares me but I am genuinly hype for this and hope it turns out well.
My dumbass already pre-ordered. I don't care. Being old school, I think I'm going to have way too much fun playing with as much nostalgia as I expect will be in it. Have not seen anything yet, and I'm excited.
My feel for Modern Horizons is that this is simply going to turn out to be a re-branding of the Maters sets and nothing more. I hope I am wrong however to justify the cost of the set there would be absolutely no excuse if half or more of this set turns out to be completely useless in the Modern format. I suspect that the greed of WTOC will corrupt this set and make it overall trash that they then demand double the value for. I am simply not willing to pay 350 per box if only 25-35 % of the cards are trash. If they double the price before taxes in Canada you would be looking 320 minimum per box.
hammertim2007 No WotC is going to put alot of effort into the first try. The next Horizons is where they are going to start to get greedy and lazy and offer less. And then less on the next one. And less and so on.
