Let’s get to it.
Kaladesh Remastered Spoilers
Kaladesh Remastered Highlights
Let’s take a closer look at some of the most powerful cards (and omissions) from Kaladesh Remastered.
Vehicles were one of the big selling points of Kaladesh and Aether Revolt. However, Smuggler’s Copter is not in this set. Nevertheless, there’s Heart of Kiran which will surely see play in Historic.
Aethersphere Harvester and Skysovereign, Consul Flagship are two more vehicles that might see some play.
Another signature mechanic from Kaladesh block is Energy, which was a whole new resource in Magic. The cards are pretty self contained and will certainly be less powerful in Historic than they were in Standard.
Three energy cards got banned in Standard: Attune with Aether, Rogue Refiner and Aetherworks Marvel. We don’t see the same thing happening in Historic, because that format’s power level is much higher than 2017 Standard’s.
Gearhulks are also back. They are of various power levels, with the two strongest ones being the blue and the green one.
Torrential Gearhulk might find a home in some control decks in Historic. Just how many times can one Settle the Wreckage?
Kaldesh Remastered Planeswalkers
Chandra is a face of the set, and hopefully she’ll see at least some play. It’s a really planeswalker to play. Another cool planeswalker that we got is Nissa, Vital Force, which might also see some play in Historic. In addition we might get some weaker planeswalkers in the set, like:
Finally, there’s Saheeli Rai but sadly without her best friend Felidar Guardian. if you aren’t familiar, these two cards win the game on the spot, if an opponent doesn’t have a removal.
You target the cat with Saheeli,’s -2, which makes a hasty cat token. This token flickers Saheeli, which you can then use again to make another cat. Repeat this any number of times to make an arbitrarily large army of kittens with haste and attack for the win.
We’ll we won’t see this combo in Historic, since Felidar Guardian didn’t make it to Kaladesh Remastered.
Various Strong Cards
Both Kaladesh and Aether Revolt had plenty of strong cards. Some can support a certain archetype. For example, Sram, Senior Edificer can really power up an Aura deck, while Winding Constrictor might push +1/+1 counter synergies to the next level.
There’s also Fatal Push, which is a very strong removal spell.
On the other hand, Walking Ballista is missing. That’s probably since it enables yet another infinite combo with Heliod, Sun-Crowned.
You give Ballista lifelink with Heliod, then ping your opponent. Ballista gets another counter because of Heliod, and you can repeat this process until your opponent is dead. We shall see if Wizards consider this combo too strong for Historic.
There are also plenty more strong cards that might find a home in Histroic, like:
Fast Land Cycle
Fast lands are one of the better dual lands in the game. These will surely see lots of play in Historic, since they are played in even more powerful eternal formats, such as Pioneer and Modern.
Kaladesh Remastered has an opportunity to bring plenty of fun cards to Arena. Sure Mechanized Production probably won’t win many games, but when it will work, it’ll be glorious.
Aetherflux Reservoir can also enable some pretty fun decks. Additionally, Panharmonicon is also great for everyone who likes value – and what better card to play alongside it than Cloudblazer?
Original Kaladesh also contained Masterpieces: Inventions. Those cards were very rare and appeared approximately once per 144 boosters. What does that have to do with Kaladesh Remastered?
Well, Amonkhet Remastered didn’t just include cards from Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation. It also had some cards like Thoughtseize, that didn’t appear in the set. Nevertheless, some of the cards were also on Amonkhet Masterpieces or Invocations.
It was since confirmed that there will be only one card from this list. Sculpting Steel will be the buy-a-box Promo.

You’ll be able to draft Kaladesh Remaster in a Premier Draft (timed draft against other players).
- Entry fee: 1,500 Gems or 10,000 Gold
- Start Date: November 12, 2020
- End Date: November 30, 2020 (at the earliest)

- Start Date: November 12, 2020
- End Date: November 30, 2020 (unconfirmed)
You can find more info about upcoming events in the Arena Event Schedule.
From November, 5th to November, 11th players will have the option to preorder Kaladesh Remastered Bundle from the Arena Store. The Bundle will contain:
- 10 Kaladesh Remastered Booster Packs
- 3 Premier Draft Tokens
- 4 Aether Hub cards
- 1 Aether Hub alternate-art style
The Bundle will cost $29.99 (or €29.99). Draft Tokens are worth 1,500 Gems each, Aether Hub is an uncommon card. This means you’re essentially paying $30 for 4,500 Gems and 10 Packs.
So is preordering Kaladesh Remastered worth it? For 30$ you could also buy both:
- one bundle of 1,600 Gems ($9.99)
- one bundle of 3,400 Gems ($19.99)
This would give you 5,000 Gems total. So you’re paying 500 Gems for 10 Kaladesh Packs and four Aether Hubs plus a cosmetic. If you were planning on drafting and buying Kaladesh Remastered Packs, then it’s a fine deal.
If you only want to draft and don’t care about Packs that much, then just buying Gems is a better deal. All in all, the preorder isn’t anything special. It isn’t a ripoff, but there also isn’t some great value to be had.
That’s all about Kaladesh Remastered for now. Which cards are you most excited to get to play with? Tell us in the comments below.
Also don’t forget to check MTG Arena codes for free Packs and card styles. There’s also a code for a free Kaladesh Remastered pack.

Until next time, have lots of fun with Kaladesh and my you never run out of energy!
2 thoughts on “Kaladesh Remastered Spoilers, Release Date and More”
Do you have data about how many cards of “Kaladesh Remastered” cards are already available in Historic? The quick peek of the card list gave me an impression that too many. I have to ask “Why Wizards Why?”.
Not the exact data, but there are some. Of course there are not Wallking Ballista, Smuggler’s Copter and Felidar Guardian, which are pretty big omissions.
