Wizards of the Coast revealed a number of new cards coming to Magic: The Gathering Standard format via the release of Innistrad: Midnight Hunt in September.
Returning to the plane of Innistrad, the first set following Standard rotation in Magic will highlight werewolves while also focusing on themes found in the original Innistrad block from 2011. Scheduled to release globally on Sept. 24 and digitally on Sept. 16, Innistrad: Midnight Hunt (IMH) will contain a full set of MTG cards. Two months after its launch, Innistrad: Crimson Vow will release.
