Unfinity is a booster-based card set for Magic: The Gathering. This is the fifth of the so-called Un-sets and is designed to be drafted. It is expected to be released on April 1, 2022.[4][5]

Set details[]

Unfinity is a top-down designed humorous set. It mixes retro-style science fiction with space circus, amusement park and carnival tropes.[4][6] External contractors like Seanbaby and members of long-time Magic content creators LoadingReadyRun contributed to the creative development of the set.[7]

Unfinity features science full-art space-themed lands: both basic lands ("spasic lands") and the Ravnica shock lands.[4][8] Each of the 30 legendary creatures has a showcase card treatment done in a retro-pop style (dubbed the "showcase cards of tomorrow").

Change to black border[]

Acorn-shaped holofoil stamp

Unlike previous Un-sets, Unfinity is black-bordered. Some of the cards will have an acorn-shaped holofoil stamp to replace the significance of silver borders.[5]

According to Mark Rosewater, when silver border was originally dubbed "not for tournament play," that meant not for Vintage, Legacy, or Standard, but for every other format, especially the casual ones. Over the years, silver border slowly shifted to end up meaning "not for any official format, casual or not," which contradicted what it was originally intended to do. Rosewater realized that many cards in the set would be perfectly fine to be played in black border Eternal sets. R&D then looked for another way to express "silver border-ness" that didn't require a silver border and turned to holofoil security stamps. What an acorn security stamp means is exactly what a silver border used to. This is a card not meant for tournament play and should only be used in casual formats where all the players agree to its inclusion. These have been dubbed "acorn" cards. If a card has an oval security stamp (or no security stamp at lower rarities), it's legal in eternal formats (which includes Commander, Legacy, and Vintage). These have been dubbed "eternal" cards. This security stamp technology allows R&D to let the two different types of cards commingle in the same set.[5]

Marketing[]

For the first time ever in an Un- set, there's a second type of booster available — a Collector Booster.[5] The Collector Boosters are 100% foil. Twelve out of fifteen of the cards are traditional foil, and three have "galaxy foil" (which looks like stars in space).

Promotional cards[]

Storyline[]

The storyline centers on "Myra the Magnificent's Intergalactic Astrotorium of Fun", a space carnival that travels the galaxy.[6] The whole park is a series of interconnected flying spaceships that can move from planet to planet. The employees of the park are Goblins, Elves, Vampires and Zombies.

Themes and mechanics[]

The set features circus, amusement park and carnival tropes. For science fiction, the set has robots, aliens, spaceships and technology. Magic itself is the main motif for the Astrotorium.
