With Kaldheim, Timespiral and Strixhaven out of the way it’s time to start milling the rumors again, and this time for Modern Horizons 2.
Update 13-4-21: Modern Horizons 2 will have upcoming cards that are obscure lore legendary characters, we love putting those into supplemental sets. Source
This image has been floating around on Reddit and Imgur for a bit now, turns out that some of the predictions here for Kaldheim and Strixhaven are true. So my guess is the Modern Horizons bits will also be quite accurate.
Here’s a write-up of the Modern Horizons things in this image.
MH2 will have Counterspell, Shardless Agent, Sanctum Prelate (BaB promo) and Solitary Confinement.
Some new cards include:
- A Planeswalker that counts as a 1/1 insect in every other zone (aka you can Green Sun’s Zenith it into play).
- A cycle of Shriekmaw style Evoke Elementals where you exile a card from your hand to Evoke them.
- A new Restore Balance cycle (uncastable Suspend cards).
- Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar is getting a card. She has no mana cost and has to be Madness’d into play.
From the MTG Wiki: Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar, or Asmor for short, was a female wizard who summoned a Lord of the Pit named Vincent but ran out of stuff to feed it. Being a great cook, she escaped being eaten herself by entering into his service as a chef for seven years and seven days. During this time, she wrote The Underworld Cookbook and had twenty copies made. Because only two copies sold in five months, she ordered two imps to burn the remaining copies. However, the line to the incinerator was too long, so they instead used a garbage chute that led to the overworld. She was finally free, only to find herself hunted by all the creatures that she describes as delicious in the book.
Exploring this lore it is my guess we will also see the cookbook as a card in MH2; probably having some effect to sacrifice creatures to create food tokens. Maybe we’ll even see a Vincent cameo, who knows?
