Magic: The Gathering fans, get your Sherlock Holmes outfit ready and prepare to solve a gritty murder mystery as 2024’s first Standard-legal set Murders at Karlov Manor (MKM) finally has a release date.
MKM is the 99th MTG expansion to be released and features a dive into the Ravnica plane as players investigate a series of murders and misfortunes in the Karlov family household. I’m getting real Knives Out vibes here, but I don’t expect Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc to make an appearance, so it’ll be up to us to find out what went wrong.
When can we expect to get our hands on MKM, and how much will the MTG products cost?

The official release date for MKM MTG products is set for Feb. 9, 2024. Players will be able to get their hands on some cards and other items about a week earlier via MKM prerelease events. All Murders at Karlov Manor spoilers start on Jan. 16. And be sure to test out your knowledge through head designer Mark “Maro” Rosewater’s MKM teaser list.

All early preorder prices for MTG Murders at Karlov Manor
While we can guess at the pricing structure for MKM products, the addition of Play Boosters—which merge Set and Draft Boosters into a single pack—is a groundbreaking change and is suspected to change the way MTG fans enjoy the game.
From booster slot changes to the merge of other products designed to make it easier for MTG players to play, the pricing of such items remains up in the air at this time. We’re also expecting to see a number of gift bundles as well as Commander Precon decks for MKM, but at this time, it’s not certain how much players will be expected to spend. Stay tuned for updates, particularly after WotC’s Murders at Karlov Manor spoiler season starts on Jan. 8.
Here are preorder prices for MKM at time of writing on Dec. 8, according to Amazon.
- Play booster box: Around $175
- Bundle: Around $50
- Ravnica: Clue Edition: Around $72
- Collector booster box: Around $280
