Magic has always had a strong following of players interested in the story behind the cards. Even characters mentioned one time who happen to have no vowels in their name make their way into our collective imagination. That being said, we can probably expect some sweet reprints from old story-rich sets, perhaps from Dominaria? Alternate art Gerrard Capashen or Captain Sisay anyone?
They obviously have lots to work with when it comes to lore, so it’s anyone’s guess about what could be included. That is, however, half the fun, so let the baseless speculation commence!
