Double-faced cards and full-art Eldrazi basic lands are included in the Magic set. You can score serial cards through Collector booster packs. Each of the four Commander Precon decks has a collectible version featuring all foil cards. And allied Fetch Lands are getting reprinted.

What are the MTG mechanics and themes within MH3?

Only a handful of MH3 cards have been previewed at the time of writing, but we do know some of the mechanics and themes featured in the set. Energy is returning as a mechanic within the third Modern Horizon set, along with other mechanics like Improvise, Devoid, Emerge, Escape, Annihilator, Lieutenant, and Imprint. Eldrazi lands and creatures are a major theme within the MTG set, which will include borderless Eldrazi concept cards.

Will MH3 get featured at an MTG tournament after it releases?

The Modern Horizons 3 set will be featured at MagicCon Amsterdam. The third Pro Tour tournament of the 2023/24 season will take place from June 28 to 30, only weeks after Prerelease events begin. The formats to be featured at the Pro Tour tournament are MH3 Limited Draft and Modern Constructed. WotC has confirmed that no Modern cards will get banned during the MTG Banned and Restricted announcement that drops before Pro Tour Amsterdam.
