Breaking News is a non-Standard set of cards associated with Outlaws of Thunder Junction.[2] As the first bonus sheet set to be included in Play boosters, the cards have a dedicated slot added.

Description[ | ]

In Breaking News, Wizards of the Coast have reprinted 65 spells (20 uncommons, 30 rares, 15 mythic rares) with a special card frame and the set code OTP.[2][3] These are only legal in formats that they are already legal in and the set's Limited formats.[4] They are not part of the Standard environment. Out of the 65 Breaking News cards, 15 Mythics have anime textured foil Booster Fun treatments (OTP #66-80).[2]

The Breaking News cards all represent crimes committed across the plane and are stylized to look like newspaper articles from the Prosperity Post.[5]

MTG Arena[ | ]

The Breaking News cards are available in Outlaws of Thunder Junction drafts on Magic: The Gathering Arena and are legal in the Historic, Brawl and Timeless formats. Four cards, Commandeer, Force of Vigor, Mana Drain, and Reanimate, were deemed too powerful and preemptivley banned in Historic.[6]

Distribution[ | ]

You receive one copy — from its dedicated slot — in each Play booster and Collector Booster.[2] The textured foil borderless cards are only found in Collector Boosters. Foil Breaking News cards can also be found in the foil wild card slot.
