Set details[edit | edit source]

Provisional logo

Innistrad: Werewolves was announced as the provisional name for this set. Based on the registration of public domains on September 18, 2020, the final name was speculated to be Innistrad: Midnight Hunt, which was confirmed on March 18, 2021. [3][4] Both Innistrad sets are full size sets and they are both are Standard-legal. Although they come out only two months apart, R&D is not changing how many sets are being added to Standard during the rotation window, but just moving around when they come out.[5] The sets are designed to draft by themselves, but they also will draft well together.[6]
