Wizards of the Coast has revealed exciting details from three upcoming Magic: The Gathering sets during the MagicCon: Vegas event in Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend.
The preview panel kicked off the weekend events on the main stage and offered an in-depth look at Lost Caverns of Ixalan, a return to a beloved plane in Ravnica Remastered, and a showcase of card treatments for The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth to thousands of convention attendees.
The Lord of The Rings: Tales of Middle-earth Holiday Scene Box builds from the beloved and extremely popular release from this past summer. No trip to Ixalan is complete without dinosaurs, and Lost Caverns of Ixalan will be the most dino-centric set yet. Ravnica Remasters is will be Magic: The Gathering‘s first set for 2024, bringing some amazing card treatment for players to jazz up their decks.
LOST CAVERNS OF IXALAN
Released 17 November 2023
A year after the Phyrexian invasion created terror and havoc across the multiverse, competing expeditions race to reach a secret world hidden below Ixalan, seeking vast riches, answers to new mysteries, legendary wonders, and ancient gods newly awoken. We will have some familiar faces making a return in this set, including one who will be making their first appearance as a Planeswalker.
There will be vampires and merfolk, and a fresh face who made his debut in the Wilds of Eldraine.
However, the main “characters” are the dinosaurs, and this set will feature cards inspired by Jurassic World, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary. These cards will feature fan-favorite characters, locations, and dinosaurs from across the franchise.
Lost Caverns of Ixalan will feature exciting booster fun cards themed around the world of Ixalan and its Mesoand South American-inspired culture. Borderless Oltec cards will use a similarly inspired art style to portray the plane. The Lost Caverns of Ixalan team has taken great care to portray work inspired by the culture with respect and reverence.
The pre-release events in Wizards Play Network stores starts on Nov. 10, and the worldwide launch kicks off on Nov. 17.

THE LORD OF THE RINGS: TALES OF MIDDLE-EARTH HOLIDAY
Released 3 November 2023
The Lord of The Rings: Tales of Middle-earth Holiday set continues to explore the familiar characters and locations in creative ways and builds from the main set, which released in June.
A Jumpstart release, Jumpstart Vol. 2, is perfect for new and experienced players alike and a great way to way to spend time with family over the holidays (and beyond). This release has five additional themes for mixing and matching: mortals, cunning, orcish, riders, elven. Shuffle and play!
The borderless scene cards were a major hit with the main set release of The Lord of The Rings: Tales of Middle-earth. For the holiday release, we created four more scenes, featuring six brand-new mechanically unique cards and bringing them together for a panoramic scene that depicts pivotal moments in the story. The Might of Galadriel, Aragon at Helm’s Deep, Gandalf in The Pelennor Fields, and Flight of The Witch-King are beautiful in their own right but each tells a wonderful story.
For the fans of the traditional Hildebrandt art, the set features Greg and Tim Hildebrandt classic The Lord of the Rings art paired with existing Magic card reprints. Twenty in total, they feature a suite of cards chosen specifically for this treatment.
Showcase Scrolls of Middle-earth bring select cards from the main release into a gorgeous book inspired alternate treatment. They appear like they are pulled straight from an old, weathered, and well-loved book.
