    So do we have all the rares now?


    Nope we’re missing 2. One red and one green is my guess

    nah we have 53 alread : 8*5=40; 6; 7; 40+6+7=53 (the projected number taking base on m19)
    Now we wait to see if we get and extra rare, MR, or probably just an extra common or uncommon.


    Ah my mistake i counted the numbers on top of each section not the rares. Yeah we’re all set.

    Assuming all the monocolored are even with rares and all 8 we should have the following cards left for rares:

    1 green
    2 Reds
    2 Artifacts

    As far as a 16th Mythic my guess at this point is No but as Dusk707 said who knows. For all I know we can get a new Zedru or Zacama card in this set for no reason at all! That’s probably unlikely and the closest we’ll get to a 16th Mythic will be the BaB promo.

    The blue elemental knight should be the last mythic right?

    I’m not sure if mythic 16 is the naya legendary


    Yep just the blue elemental knight which I really wanna know what he does.

    I’m curious about 16 too. Are we getting another Mythic that I am unaware of or are we including the BaB with the Mythic count?


    Again, M19 had 16 mythics in set, which is what I based this rarity distribution off off. They were 5 walkers, five elder dragons, five mono mythics, and crucible. In the op, the plus next to each number indicates cards at that rarity outside of the main set (where BaB and Walker decks are)

    Edit: that’s not to say that there will be 16 mythics, but that it has been done. Given everything a sixteenth mythic could would like be a rainbow legend or an artifact of some kind


    I see your point. If we get a 16th Mythic I’ll say Artifact since again. We had also had a double faced card in M19 which sometimes wizards disregard in counts. Right now it’s hard to tell but we will find out soon. On one hand, there’s the double faced card thing I said. On the other hand, m19 still had 16 mythics so I’m split over how many cards we will get.

    On another note, that black Artifact Rare makes me wonder if we are getting a cycle of colored artifacts. I know we only got one colored Artifact card so far but it can happen given we got room
    For another rare in each color.

    Edit: I’m so dumb! It’s an Uncommon colored Artifact NOT a rare. Regardless, Uncommon colored Artifact cycle maybe?

    My guess on the remaining rare breakdown:

    We got 43 out of 53 rares:

    That means 10 more:

    My guess:

    8 rares in each monocolor- that would leave:

    1 more white rare
    1 more blue rare
    1 more Red rare
    3 More red rares
    2 more green rares

    That leaves 2 which are most likely artifacts because:

    The lands are full so no more rares there and Multicolored has no more Rares.

    I would say that we get 7 rares per color but that would leave 7 more artifact rares which seems unlikely.

    Edit: we are still missing the green and red rare legendary creature so one of those rares is a legendary creature in those respective colors

    Kind of stinks that Dominaria rotates out with September. However this does work well with Planeswalkers from War so it’ll be fun.

    I think I smell a Legendary Rare cycle for each monocolor. We had it last core set and we got a blue legendary creature and a black one at this point. I can see three other legendary monocolored creatures for green, white, and red.

    I was looking at the multicolored breakdown. Yaruk at 220. I can see this going one of three ways:

    1. We get the last 2 Mythic rares in multicolored and 4 uncommons to make 10 uncommons and 5 Mythic rares and complete both cycles. The multicolors would end after Yarok with this and we start artifacts at 221.

    2. We get 5 more card in multicolored (I’m thinking rares since we have yet to see a multicolored Rare). Maybe we get a cycle of something else? I feel this would be unlikely though since I can’t see 5 cards after Yarok. That would mean 5 more cards that begin with Y or Z which would be unlikely in my opinion.

    3. (VERY remote possibility) we get a hybrid section of 5 cards between Yarok and Golos. They could be hybrid enemy colors to go with wedges or something else. I don’t really see this happening but it’s definitely a possibility. Maro did say there was a twist somewhere (I doubt it’ll be that tho if it is).

    Out of all these I think the first is more likely. I can see us getting a “mana rock” cycle or something of that nature.


    On another note, new Omnath still fits the crunch for the Temur colored legendary!!!!

    Is it me or does feel like I’m seeing previews for Commander 2019 and not coreset 2020? We are getting so many legendary creatures and stuff to go with it. I mean 5 wedges with a theme to each and a legendary for each wedge makes this feel like the first of two commander sets.

    I mean I’m not complaining (considering I only play commander) just kind of find it odd. Interesting cards so far though.

    Seems like a Return to Theros plant.


    I forget where but I read in another Forum that the Fall set is going to be a new plane. That’s not to say we won’t get a return to Theros in Winter or spring thought. Just won’t be the fall set.

    So for Mythics, I wonder if we pretty much them even though it’s early.

    15 mythics
    5 Planeswalkers
    5 legendary (wedge) creatures (not confirmed but I can see us getting this)
    5 monocolored Mythic Rare cycle (I read Maros article and he said that Cavalier of Flames was part of a cycle)

    I feel like I’m missing something. We can’t have a general idea of Mythic spoilers on day 1.....can we?

    Since the Sultai wedge is getting ETB stuff, could we see an Acidic Slime reprint?


    I’d say there’s a good chance! Acidic Slime usually gets reprinted and I see no reason for them not to.

    And yeah thanks for the answers, I saw the promo packaging myself. It’s weird how we see Vivian and not Nissa. I guess wizards is really pushing for Vivian to get some spotlight now. Makes me wonder if we are going to visit Skalla in the near future! I find Mu Yangling and Sorin also equally interesting. I’m wondering if any of these hint on what the next few sets are. Looking forward to what the Planeswalkers cards have in store!

    Wait did I miss something? How do we know the other Planeswalkers and who they are?

    The bigger question for me is: when do we find out the fall set? On one hand I’m thinking we should at least know it by the time that previews are done. On the other hand, I’m starting to feel like Wizards are going to start doing things last minute so we may get it a week before fall previews from what I know. I’m really curious where we are going next and the wait is starting to kill me!

    Edit: I just realized I posted this in probably the wrong place. Sorry everyone in this thread.
