Magic's 30th Anniversary Kicks Off with Promos, Products, and More

Our 30th anniversary celebration is just getting started—read up on what we've got planned.

This year, Magic: The Gathering celebrates our 30th anniversary—and we're going all out on the party planning. The celebration will last more than a year, and we're launching promos, products, and partnerships throughout the next 14 months to commemorate our favorite game in every way we know how!

Today, we're reviewing the announcements and highlighting the most exciting ways for you to bring the birthday bash to your store.


Showcasing Our 30th Anniversary Promos

As you know, we're releasing 30 promos across eight Prereleases from 2022 through 2024, one to celebrate each year of Magic. Seven of these 30 promos will be printed in one of the non-English languages Magic is printed in to celebrate our global fans. Every region will receive the non-English language promos in the language listed—for example, all regions received the German version of Fyndhorn Elves with Dominaria United.

We've already shown off the Prerelease promos for Dominaria United: Serra Angel, Ball Lightning, and Fyndhorn Elves printed in German. For The Brothers' War, we are sending WPN stores Wood Elves, Wall of Roots, Windfall, and Loyal Retainers printed in Chinese (Simplified).
