What is now being dubbed announcement day, Wizards of the Coast on May 16th announced several new releases coming to the Magic The Gathering CCG later this year.  This is part of their new announcement strategy where twice a year, announcements like this will be made to cover all the upcoming releases.  So without further ado, here are the list of announcements from the article on the MTG site:

  • “Invent your Tomorrow” as we explore the plane we first caught a glimpse of in Magic Origins—Chandra’s home plane of Kaladesh. Imagination, invention, and ingenuity await when we debut Kaladesh at PAX West on September 2, 2016, and release it in stores September 30, 2016.
  • In the follow-up to Kaladesh, “It’s Time to Take the Power Back” with Aether Revolt. Ingenuity will only get you so far when the revolt comes. Releasing January 20, 2017.
  • With Kaladesh come new ways to experience Magic. Mark Rosewater introduces and explains the new Bundle and Planeswalker Deck in his latest article.
  • Magic: The Gathering—Commander (2016 Edition) introduces a twist players have long clamored for—four-color legendary commanders. Choose your champion when the latest in the Commander series releases on November 11, 2016.
  • Much like Duel Decks: Anthology, the upcoming Planechase Anthology will gather previous Planechase products together in one convenient package. Planechase lets you travel from plane to plane as you battle your friends and foes—and now you can own every planar card ever printed, available November 25, 2016.
  • Relive the battle between Zendikar’s protector and its would-be destroyer. Duel Decks: Nissa vs. Ob Nixilis pits two of the Multiverse’s most powerful Planeswalkers against one another—just as they were in Magic Story. Releases September 2, 2016.
  • Releasing with Conspiracy—Take the Crown, Magic players will be able to pick up a new Draft Pack in North American mass-market stores. The Draft Pack features three Booster Packs of the new Magic multiplayer Draft set, Conspiracy—Take the Crown. Pick one up on your way to yourConspiracy draft and get ready to start plotting against your fellow drafters. Look for Draft Packs in mass-market stores starting August 26
