With Modern coming back in full force, Kai examines how the return of large events and the shift in metagame has affected the market
It would seem that Wizards is growing impatient. The stated beginning of Modern Horizons 2 previews was next week. However, as part of their announcement of the “Summer of Legend” (which trips my marketing gag reflex), Wizards gave us some early spoilers.
