The August State of the Game for MTG Arena dropped today and with it came a bevy of information on Amonkhet Remastered. The set will be coming to Arena on August 13th and will take around 338 cards from Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation and release them into the Arena ecosystem. The set is designed with Limited in mind and contains cards that will impact Historic and be Pioneer relevant when that format is playable on Arena. While the announcement mentions 338 cards, it heavily implies this number is not entirely accurate.
The State of the Game also includes information on the upcoming Standard rotation and quality of life improvements for the program. And if yesterday’s banned list update was not enough, it also contained two updates to the Brawl banned list:
- Runed Halo is banned in both Brawl and Historic Brawl
- Gideon’s Intervention is banned in Historic Brawl
