Last week I made a post about Spectral Chaos, the set that never was, and now the full set has been published online. Reddit user Hypolast has presented the set with the Modern card template on Imgur. As one would expect, there's some landhome garbage and Ice Cauldron-esque text-boxes, though there is some cool design. There's also some completely busted cards.

A dash of cards that while not broken, wouldn't be reasonable to print:

Great Cat

And a few goodies that made their way in some form into the game of Magic, for better or for worse.


The design for this set started immediately after Alpha launched, so we have to cut the designers some slack. I can't help but wonder how an actual release of Spectral Chaos would have impacted the course of Magic history.
