The Gathering Set release calendar 2023

Magic: The Gathering is a game that is constantly evolving, adding new maps, characters, and worlds for players to explore. If you’re a Magic player looking ahead and want to see what’s next for the game, here’s the schedule for you.

New sets mean new cards, and new cards mean new decks. While it’s impossible to predict which strategies will dominate in MTG Arena’s Standard, Explorer, and Alchemy formats, the new sets will almost certainly shake up the meta.

Dominaria United and The Brother’s War were released in late 2022, leaving five sets slated for release in 2023: Phyrexia: All Will Be One, March of the Machine, March of the Machine: Aftermath, Wilds of Eldraine, and finally The Lost Caverns of Ixalan .

Magic publishers Wizards of the Coast have provided a release roadmap for the year.

The next Magic set, codenamed ONE, continues the Phyrexian story. In it, a group of Planeswalkers face off against the terrifying cyborg race of the Phyrexians, and are forced to delve into their nightmarish homeworld to stop their nefarious multiverse-conquering agenda. A massive leak earlier this month revealed many cards from the set, releasing February 7th to MTG Arena and February 10th to tabletops.

WOTC has this to say about March of the Machine: “The Multiverse – and magic– will be changed forever.” Expect March of the Machine (MOM) to offer an epic culmination of the Phyrexian storyline when it releases in April.

In a new step for WOTC, Aftermath (MAT) will be a “micro-set” that ties the Phyrexian storyline with a limited selection of new cards. It will be legal by default and will be released in May.

Another returning plane, Ixalan is a plane inhabited by dinosaurs, vampires, pirates, and merpeople. Its unique aesthetic is reminiscent of pre-colonial America and was a fan favorite. The new set will be released in the 4th quarter of 2023.

In addition to core sets, WOTC is also releasing a selection of add-on sets as part of its ongoing program of experimentation with brands outside of the Magic universe. These include collaborations with Lord of the Rings and Doctor Who, also coming in 2023.

Now you have the 2023 release schedule for Magic: The Gathering. Tons of content for MTG comes out every year, and 2023 seems to be no different. Expect 2023 to be one of Magic’s greatest years ever, as it culminates in the Phyrexia storyline and expands on fan-favorite aircraft. The Gathering Set release calendar 2023
