M10 - MTG 2010 Core Set Announced with English Release and Pre-release cards


Prerelease date: July 11-12, 2009
Release date: July 17, 2009
Set size: 249 cards (101 C, 60 U, 53 R, 15 M, 20 L)
Product lineup: Five intro packs, 15-card booster pack, 6-card booster pack, fat pack

Unlike the other core sets that have been released in the past, M10 will not be having 100% reprint cards. According to WoTC, it is 50% reprints, and 50% new cards. In an attempt to rebrand the core set, and take it back to its Alpha roots, the flavor and setting of these cards is extremely open to interpretation. This set also features mythic rares, following the rarity/set size of Shards of Alara.

The pre-release and release cards are as follows:

Pre-release card:
Vampire Nocturnus 1bbb
Creature - Vampire Mythic Rare
Play with the top card of your library revealed.
As long as the top card of your library is black, Vampire Nocturnus and other Vampire creatures you control get +2/+1 and have flying.

Release Card:
Ant Queen 3gg
Creature - Insect Rare
1{G}: Put a 1/1 green Insect creature token onto the battlefield.
