What is Amonkhet Remastered?
Amonkhet Remastered is a special MTG set, released only on Arena. It doesn’t contain any brand new Magic cards, however most of the cards are new to the Arena client.
Wizards want to get older sets on Arena too. They stated that they want to support Pioneer eventually. This is a format that contains cards from Return to Ravnica forward.
Amonkhet Remastered is the first step towards that goal. It brings the two youngest sets that aren’t on Arena yet – Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation. Not all of the cards from this two set are included though. Both sets are combined into a larger one, but some cards had to go.
The missing cards are mostly cards that have similar effects in both sets (in addition to some fringe cards). Nevertheless, there are also some rares and mythics missing. Most notable omissions include:
But fear not, the most powerful cards are still included. (Except Adorned Pouncer, what a shame.) In fact, there are actually some cards here that were neither in Amonkhet nor in Hour of Devastation.
14 additional cards appear in Amonkhet Remastered. Why are they here? Probably to make this set more exciting and to provide a fresh breath to Historic format, as they are very powerful cards, from sideboard stuff like Rest in Peace to key cards like Thoughtseize, Collected Company and Wrath of God.
So where can you find all of these cards?
