Wizards Announce Modern Horizons 2 Release Date

There’s always something new happening in the world of Magic the Gathering. We already knew that the new Modern set, called Modern Horizons 2 (MH2) is releasing in 2021, but thanks to the Wizards Play Network announcement, we now know the exact release date plus some other information. Including some very interesting spoilers.

What is Modern Horizons 2?

First Modern Horizons set came out in June 2019. It featured brand new cards meant for Modern. Cards from this set didn’t become Standard legal, but are legal in Modern. This set allows Wizards to design cards specifically for Modern, without them entering Standard.

The first set contained just new cards. The MH2 however, will contain a mix of new cards and reprints. The set is also balanced around draft, and it should provide a fun draft experience.


Lat time around, Modern Horizons got only regular Draft Boosters. This will not be the here, as we’re getting:

  • Draft Boosters
  • Set Boosters
  • Collector Boosters
  • Prerelease Packs

So this will be the first non-Standard set that will feature both Set boosters and Prerelease packs. If you’re a bit confused about so many different boosters, this MTG Booster Pack Guide explains the difference between them.

Modern Horizons 2 Release Date

Modern Horizons 2 release date is June 11, 2021. That’s between Strixhaven and Forgotten Realms sets. However, you’ll be able to play with the cards on week before. How? In the MH2 prerelease event.


This is the first MTG non-Standard set that will have Prerelease packs. So naturally, there will be prerelease events. These events can happen between June 4 – June 10. If you’re planning on attending, you should probably contact your game store, to find out when and how exactly will they run Modern Horizons 2 prerelease events.

Each Prerelease Kit will contain six boosters and a promo card. It’ll probably work in the same way as the regular prerelease promo. This means you’ll get a additional rare or mythic rare (a random one from the set) with a date stamped on it.

Modern Horizons 2 Spoilers

Spoilers for non-Standard sets usually start around three weeks before the prerelease. This means you can expect them from May 24, 2021. However, we already know that five cards will appear in the set, and they are all quite good.

That’s right, enemy fetch lands are coming back returning in Modern Horizons 2. This was confirmed by the official MTG Twitter account.


Anyways, that’s all about Modern Horizons 2 spoilers. Once more information and previews become available, you can expect an update to this article.
