What is MTG Bloomburrow?

The Bloomburrow MTG set is the first of a new story arc called Dragonstorm. It’s a Standard-legal set that will include Commander Precon decks (BLC) and Special Guest (SPG) cards within booster packs. The set features 281 regular cards and booster fun treatments like Showcase Woodland, borderless Fieldnote, and raised foil borderless anime cards

Unlike other MTG planes, all inhabitants are animals, even if that creature isn’t an animal on another plane. Jace, the only Planeswalker in the set, for example, is showcased as a fox within the Bloomburrow set. Known creatures featured in the MTG set at time of writing include calamity beasts, owls, frogs, rabbits, and mice

Why is MTG Bloomburrow an important Standard set?

For the first time in three years, the Standard format will rotate with the release of Bloomburrow. WotC extended the legality of Standard cards last year from two to three years. The launch of Bloomburrow will mark the first official MTG Standard rotation since the duration of the format was extended.
