MtG - The Lost Caverns of Ixalan
When the Phyrexians invaded Ixalan, it seemed all hope was lost. But the bravery and cooperation of its people, united against a foe unlike any other, allowed the greatest force on the plane to turn the tides. Ixalan fought—and survived.
That was a year ago. With scars from the invasion fading, the excitement (and rewards) of exploration launches expeditions across the plane once more. This time, the journey heads down into the untold depths below: riches, wonders, mysteries, and ancient gods—all intertwined with danger—are just some of what awaits us with The Lost Caverns of Ixalan.
New and returning characters, mechanics, and creatures—including Dinosaurs, of course—are all here.
The story for The Lost Caverns of Ixalan picks up with both Huatli and Saheeli sharing in the Sun Empire's expedition below. Joining them is the new Planeswalker Quintorius, eager to dive into hidden history, as well as Kellen, who we first met in Wilds of Eldraine after he travelled through the Omenpaths to arrive at Ixalan.

You can enjoy the entire Magic Story of The Lost Caverns of Ixalan when the complete adventure drops on October 20, right here on DailyMTG.
BOOSTER FUN AND BEYOND FOR THE LOST CAVERNS OF IXALAN
Treasure, beautiful art, and sources of power elevate the Booster Fun cards we'll discover, starting with basic lands.
These full-art lands show the Core of Paradise, located in the heart of Ixalan and the destination for the journey below. What's uncovered along the way is shown in treatments that draw inspiration from Meso- and South America cultures, celebrating and expanding on the treatment design originally featured in March of the Machine earlier this year.
Ojer Axonil, Deepest Might // Temple of Power
Ojer Axonil, Deepest Might // Temple of Power (Gods of Ixalan)
The Legends of Ixalan treatment is back (along with everyone's favorite Goblin Pirate Breeches), and it's taken to a new level for the Gods of Ixalan treatment as seen on the God Ojer Axonil, deity of the Temple of Power. Continuing the Mesoamerican inspiration, the borderless Oltec treatment for The Skullspore Nexus features bright colors and beautiful representations of even the deadliest threats.
We promised Dinosaurs, too! Ghalta, a hero from the defense against the Phyrexian invasion (as much as an unbelievable force of nature can be called a "hero"), is here too in gorgeous borderless glory.
As we delve down to the heart of Ixalan we'll encounter rich veins of cosmium running throughout the underground. Brilliant and colorful, like forking tendrils of power reaching out, this incredible feature of Ixalan is captured with the return of the neon ink treatment first seen in Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty.
Cavern of Souls (Cosmium Neon Ink)
One of the places you'll find cosmium neon ink cards are Collector Boosters, and we'll share more about these beautiful cards soon.
TREASURE TROVE BOX TOPPERS AND SPECIAL GUESTS
We've seen the creatures, dangers, and depths of our return to Ixalan—but what about some treasure?
Appearing as Box Toppers, a hoard of trinkets, baubles, equipment, and more—all powerful artifacts in their own right—are here to be discovered. Found in non-foil for Draft and Set Booster displays and traditional foil for Collector Booster displays, these Box Toppers await all who lay claim to The Lost Caverns of Ixalan.
While Box Toppers are found in a Box Topper Pack with The Lost Caverns of Ixalan displays, we're bringing even more exciting cards into Set and Collector Boosters with the debut of Special Guests.
As a pathway to reprinting that we're debuting with The Lost Caverns of Ixalan, Special Guests includes powerful Masters release–level reprints featuring art in the aesthetic of the set. Here, for The Lost Caverns of Ixalan, one of Magic's iconic Merfolk is reimagined as having travelled the Omenpaths to find itself at home with the River Heralds—yet no less invigorating to all Merfolk.
And to be clear, we mean it when we say that cards from Special Guests can be powerful:
Special Guests will continue into future Magic sets, featuring a unique set symbol and collector numbers. For The Lost Caverns of Ixalan, non-foil cards from Special Guests can be found in Set Boosters, with traditional foil cards found in Collector Boosters.
Mana Crypt is more than just part of the debut for Special Guests and appears in Collector Boosters with the cosmium neon ink treatment (like Cavern of Souls shown earlier):
Mana Crypt (Cosmium Neon Ink)
(Note that The List, a flavorful way to reprint cards in Set Boosters, also continues with The Lost Caverns of Ixalan.)
We'll share more from Special Guests on October 24 with the debut for The Lost Caverns of Ixalan.
