Quote From Maro

The new core set has a lot of exciting new cards, including:

  • A brand new planeswalker (from a plane we’ve visited)
  • A card that lets you draw half of your library.
  • A +1/+1 tribal lord for a creature type that’s never had one. (A creature type with over fifty cards already in print.)
  • A character with a Vanguard card and a legendary creature card gets a second of the latter.
  • A card with thirty-one different options.
  • A card that gains all activated abilities of a certain subset of cards in a place it’s never done it before.
  • A card that uses a nonevergreen named ability over twenty years old.
  • A card with the words “battlefield”, “cast”, “creature”, “converted mana cost”, “end of turn”, “exile”, “graveyard” and “mana cost”.
  • An aura inspired from a cycle from Urza’s Saga block
  • A nonevergreen enchantment subtype returns

Core 2021 also has a number of fun reprints, including:

  • A popular character first introduced in flavor text.
  • A French Vanilla mythic rare.
  • A popular aura that started as part of a cycle.
  • A card with a unique protection.
  • Two cards played in tournaments that have been reprinted over twenty times with at least five different pieces of art
  • A card that’s never previously appeared in a premier set.
  • A card that’s never been reprinted before which has a 2, 3, 5 and 6 all appear on the card.
  • A Human Monk.
  • A card from the Time Spiral timeshifted sheet.
