Wizards of the Coast has announced a new Magic: The Gathering set titled Jumpstart.
Consisting of 20-card booster packs, each pack has its own randomised theme - one of 46 in total - including the likes of cats, wild planeswalker Garruk and part-mechanical undead aliens the Phyrixians.

New set Jumpstart will also include mythic rare packs centered around epic beasts like the unicorn, meaning you have a chance of constructing an alien-undead-unicorn deck.
In addition, every pack will have one basic land that matches the theme of the deck.
To play Jumpstart, you shuffle two booster packs together to make a unique 40-card deck.
Over 400 Magic: The Gathering card reprints are included in Jumpstart, as well as 37 new cards that will also feature in the upcoming Magic: The Gathering Core Set 2021.
Invented by mathematician Richard Garfield, Magic: The Gathering is one of the most popular trading card games in the word.
Jumpstart is releasing on the tabletop on July 3rd and pre-release will be running from June 21st to the 22nd.
It will also be available digitally on Magic: The Gathering Arena later in the year.
