At this past weekend’s PAX event, Wizards of the Coast announced that the upcoming fall set would be known as “Theros”. Additionally, the names of the two small sets in the block were also released: “Born of the Gods” and “Journey into Nyx”. From the set names, as well as the released promotional art, it looks as though Theros will take place in a Greek/Roman mythological setting. Look forward to lightning gods, immortal hydras, and sphinx’s riddles this September!
