Wizards of the Coast is doubling down on releases for the remainder of 2022, from 200-plus MTG Arena drops to Magic: The Gathering collaborations and a second Commander Legends launch.
A total of six Magic: The Gathering set releases will take place during the summer and fall of 2022. No Standard-legal sets are slated to release until the launch of Dominaria United, which coincides with the 2022 Standard rotation. Leading up to fall rotation, WotC is going all out via a second Commander Legends, a Double Masters 2022 set, a huge MTG Arena Alchemy drop, and a special Universes Beyond collaboration with Warhammer 40,000.
Here’s every important date and release schedule for Magic: The Gathering and Arena products for summer and fall 2022.

Tapping into Dungeons & Dragons, the second MTG Commander Legends set will showcase over 360 regular cards via Battle for Baldur’s Gate. Similar to the first Commander Legends, the set will have a Commander Draft and a number of collector cards via booster fun treatments.
