Another expansion

Looks like we have another coming next fall:

http://www.universaldist.com/p-22850...ars-exp-4.aspx

Looking around on the site, we see the 1st expansion is called (by the site) Blood & Sweat and this ones is called Tears & Fears. Looking at Magic's release schedule:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...Gathering_sets

We see that Blood and Sweat are the codenames for the Battle for Zendikar block releasing in 9/2015 and 1/2016 and Tears and Fears are codenames for the next Magic set releasing in 4/2016 and 7/2016. If they keep to this release schedule, we should be seeing expansions come out twice a year.

Re: Another expansion

That's art from the most recent Mirrodin set, which suggests the next Magic set is New Phyrexia. Could make for some cool units, the Phyrexians are classic.

Re: Another expansion

I wonder if we'll get any common squads as filler.

Re: Another expansion

Stand-Alone & Expandable Play
Item #: B7410
Dims: 10.5” H X 15.75” W

If that website is to be trusted then we are getting a box the same size as the original and able to be played stand alone. It looks like less of an expansion and more of another "Master set".

Perhaps it will be a 2 army box with 2 multi color Planes walkers, and a few common squads. If they keep releasing Planeswalkers they will have to start recycling since their are only so many in the lore.

If this expansion is good for both stand-alone and expandable play, that would suggest that it is likely to contain new base map pieces. Being the same size box would also support that idea. The map pieces in the original are sand color with a bit of water. Any guesses as to what color a Mirrodin map might be? If a different color of base map is provided, tiles of a different color would also be a possibility.

Re: Another expansion

Metallic most likely for a Mirrodin set.

Re: Another expansion

By the way, they just announced the next Magic Block (for next Spring) - Shadows over Innistrad. It's another "Return" block, and since it's REALLY unlikely they'd do three of them in a row, that's likely just placeholder art in the first post - unless they start releasing expansions completely unrelated to the new sets.

On the other hand, we'll likely be getting zombies and vampires and werewolves next Summer, which is exciting.

Re: Another expansion

Somewhat off-topic but it would be amazing if they released the older Planeswalkers from the mythos like Urza, or his later robotic counter part Karn. (still like Urza way better)

Re: Another expansion

Liliana's going to get some new buddies now. I think they're trying to play it safe with the game and offer sets with well-respected Magic names to appeal to the fanbase. Zendikar followed by Innistrad, which Magic fanboys would be all over. This instead of Kamigawa, or (Gasp!) Homelands. Whether that's a good or bad thing, I don't know, but I think it means this game could last for some time.

Secondly, I don't think we'll see multicolored Planeswalkers extremely often. Few planeswalkers are known for being multicolored, and only one has been on Innistrad. I do think this set could give us The Chain Veil and some artifacts. (Or are they saving it for return-return to Mirrodin?)

Re: Another expansion

Thanks @quozl for starting this thread and supplying the links. I haven't been keeping up with the MtG news, since I've never played it and no one near me plays Atop.
