After being announced last October, it's finally here. Shadows Over Innistrad Remastered has a release date, set to be with us March 21. This will comprise 302 cards from Shadows Over Innistrad and Eldritch Moon, as well as 81 "callback" cards seemingly inspired by the original Innistrad block.

This is being revealed over Twitch right now, with a livestream from the Magic: The Gathering team still ongoing at the time of writing.

Shadows Over Innistrad is one of Magic's most popular sets, originally released back in 2016. This reprinting into Arena is the third remastered set overall, coming after Amonkhet and Kaladesh Remastered. The set will be Explorer- and Historic-legal, but there are no plans for a physical run just yet, making it exclusive to Arena. However, Wizards has not ruled out revisiting the idea of paper reprints (such as the recent Dominaria Remastered and 2021's Time Spiral remastered), and so it remains to be seen if that changes after the remaster goes live on March 21.

Shadows Over Innistrad Remastered's launch helps bring Explorer closer to its physical release counterpart, Pioneer, which already has access to both sets' cards.

With its distinctive cosmic horror aesthetic thanks to the invasion of the Eldrazi on Innistrad, it's safe to say that the Shadows Over Innistrad set stood out when it released in 2016. We can expect to see this same artwork in this digital remaster, so it's good news for fans of the Lovecraftian style of before.

As many of you are no doubt aware, this livestream is far from the only wave of MTG news we've received recently.
