Amonkhet Remastered Release Details

News Release 
By: Kagros - 04 Aug 2020

Wizards dropped their MTGA State of the Game today and the major topics of discussion was the release details about Amonkhet Remastered. Let's go over it!

Amonkhet Remastered Release Details

Let's look at some of the nitty-gritty, sun-blistering, sand-blasted details:

  • 338 total cards from Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation*
  • Obtainable in boosters, Limited events (Sealed and Draft), and through crafting
  • Focus on creating an interesting, repeatable Limited player experience
  • Provide support for Historic and (eventually) Pioneer Constructed formats

If you're wondering why we put a little "*" at the end of our total cards, keep an eye on these initiates as the Hour of Scheduled Maintenance draws nigh . . .

Amonkhet Remastered Events
Premier Draft: August 13–September 17
Sealed: August 13–August 21

Amonkhet Previews

Wizards also put together a Preview schedule here. Amonkhet Remastered Previews will start next Monday and lead up to the release on August 13th.

There are 338 total cards, so about 100 cards from the original sets did not make the cut into Amonkhet Remastered. It will be interesting to see how they will reveal the set.

Note that there are only 6 different Preview sources and not a bunch of them. Wizards also hinted above that there are extra cards that might be released. It is likely that these 6 different Preview sources will be NEW cards that will be slipped in that weren't originally in Amonkhet or Hour of Devastation. There is some speculation whether or not these will be some cards that were printed with the Invocation frame that will be added to the Historic or cards that would fit the Amonkhet theme like Vengeful Pharaohimage. Either way, it should be exciting!

Are there any cards that you will be excited to play with in Historic? Old Standard favorites like Hazoret the Ferventimage and The Scarab Godimage should see a lot of immediate play, but I'm personally excited to play The Locust Godimage in Historic Brawl!

May his return come quickly, and we found worthy

Personnally I find the amount of content is fine and the biggest problem is how Jumpstart was released and DRAINED my gold so Amonkhet and Zendikar drafts will be harder to sustain with just the gems I have put aside. I'm 16 events in so that's 32K sunk gold. Had it been a normal draft format I'd have been in a healthy spot even though I've been free to play for more than a year (I used to spend money before but didn't feel the need for a while).

Too much content for Historic maybe? Hard to keep up with so many expansions.
