Do you love creatures with shadow? How about paying buyback? Heck, do you love the card Wasteland? Well Magic Online has an upcoming release that is perfect for you!
Tempest Remastered will take cards from the original Tempest block and distill them down into 269 cards designed to play well for draft and help inject some hard to find cards into the Magic Online economy.
Tempest Remastered will contain 101 commons, 80 uncommons, 53 rares, and 15 mythic rares culled from Tempest, Stronghold, and Exodus, which implies some amount of rarity shifts. The set will also have 20 basic lands and have premium cards appearing at the normal frequency.
