Apart from the MTG x Warhammer 40000 cards, Wizards also announced the new Unfinity set, the latest release in the Un- set of cards. The Un- set of cards are mostly comprised of unique and unbalanced cards that are mainly used for non-competitive playthroughs rather than the traditional ones. So expect a lot of bonkers here.
What’s in Unfinity?
The Unfinity story is set in an outlandish sci-fi version of a carnival called Myra the Magnificent’s Intergalactic Astrotorium of Fun and is packed to the brim with zany fun. There are several differences between this set and the main line of MTG cards, chiefly that the Unfinity set doesn’t feature the normal MTG backs but rather custom designs. These new cards are aptly named the Attractions cards.
Wizards says that the Attraction cards are meant to evoke the experiences of visiting a theme park and include locations, games and other things you’d typically find there.
The Unfinity set consists of Draft and Collector Booster sets and will come with a Box Topper booster filled with one traditional foil shock land. In addition to Box Toppers, Unfinity Collector Boosters offer the chance to open traditional foil shock lands.
In Draft Boosters, roughly one out of every 24 Boosters contains a borderless shock land where a basic land card would be found. For Collector Boosters, there are two slots where a basic land appears, and one out of every 24 appearances is a borderless shock land instead.
The Unfinity set also features two full-art cards; the first is the Orbital Space-ic Lands, an orbital look on alien lands and topography with the second is Planetary Spac-ic Lands, amazing full-on planetary art. Both these full-art cards can be found in both Draft and Collector Boosters. Galaxy Foil cards, which feature traditional foil treatment but are punctuated with echoes of planets and stars across the foiling, are also included in the Unfinity set.
Traditionally, Un- set cards come with a silver border to differentiate themselves from normal black-bordered MTG cards. This time around, however, Wizards have decided to do away with silver borders and introduce Acorn Cards instead.
The new cards keep the black borders but with a tiny acorn symbol added at the bottom and can’t be played in tournament games. Cards without the acorn symbol are legal for Vintage, Legacy, and Commander but not in other formats like Standard, Pioneer, or Modern.
