Magic Enters a New Frontier

Following the devastation of the Phyrexian invasion, a new plane has become available to travel via the Omenpaths: Thunder Junction. Characters from across the multiverse are flooding into this new frontier to test their fortunes in an outlaw vs. outlaw world.

Thunder Junction is a brand-new plane for your players, so be sure to highlight and celebrate the tropes and aesthetics of the Western genre when kicking off early conversations in your community. You might even consider brainstorming with your staff to prepare some on-theme decorations for events in your store!

This plane is new to the characters in-universe, too, and one well-known outlaw is ready to bring his crew to the scene to pull off an epic heist—Oko, the Ringleader. At MagicCon Chicago, we shared one of his team members in the set: Tinybones, the Pickpocket.

Breaking News Bonus Sheet

Similar to the Enchanted Tales Bonus Sheet from Wilds of Eldraine, cards from the Breaking News Bonus Sheet have the Breaking News booster fun treatment and can be found in every pack, with foils available in both Play and Collector Boosters.

Collector Booster Exclusive: Vault Treatment

Cards from The Big Score belong to a special subset with their own set symbol, set code, and frame (on select cards)—and they're Standard legal! Special Guests cards and the 30 mythic rares from The Big Score feature the vault frame.

Some Vault cards may have a raised foil effect, like the Gilded Foil treatment from Streets of New Capenna.
