[11] Eventually, the team chose to represent alternate realities where elements of the color pie were shifted, placing spell types and abilities into unusual colors. During the Phyrexian invasion 300 years ago, Teferi phased out the (sub)continents of Shiv and Zhalfir before phasing out himself.

The set size was then confirmed to be 301 cards, with 121 commons, 80 uncommons, 80 rares, and 20 basic lands. This was far from the first time when cards received functional reprints in new colors; Holy Day from Legends, for example, was a color-shifted reprint of Fog.

However, this was the first time when color-shifted reprints of previous cards were explicitly indicated as such. It shows types and mechanics that will probably have key roles in future blocks. Spells with split second prevent other spells or abilities from being played as long as a spell with that keyword is on the stack. In the top left corner of each card is a symbol that tells the card type; for example, a symbol of claw marks represent a creature card. [3] For example, Future Sight also introduced a new card supertype, Tribal.
[3] With Future Sight, the frame design of the "Timeshifted" cards is entirely new. Time Spiral is a Magic: The Gathering expert-level block consisting of the expansion sets Time Spiral (October 6, 2006), Planar Chaos (February 2, 2007), and Future Sight (May 4, 2007). Others are reprints of much more obscure cards, and would not have been recognized as colorshifted without the altered border, such as Keen Sense being a reprint of Curiosity and Sunlance being a color-shifted Strafe. [10] The design team considered a number of ways to represent an alternate present, including the introduction of purple as a new color. During their efforts, they merge to form an alternate version of Karona. The theme of the block was time. It also contains a cycle called "Pacts", which are instants with a mana cost of 0 but a cost that must be paid during the caster's next upkeep to avoid a game loss. At the final stage, Jeska teleports both Venser and Radha to a safe location, sacrificing herself to seal the final rift at the end of the book.[16]. He manages to close the time rift, but in the process is lost. [5], The size of the set had been in dispute prior to release, as Wizards issued two different sizes for the set, 301 and 422. Time Spiral block is the twelfth block consisting of the large expansion Time Spiral () and the two small expansions Planar Chaos () and Future Sight (). The Planeswalker Jeska returns to Dominaria. Suspend echoes the Tempest card Ertai's Meddling and is written on a card as "Suspend X – Cost".

Bolas then uses what remains of Leshrac to seal the Madaran rift. Planar Chaos focused on the present, referencing previous Magic: The Gathering cards, but changing them in some way, such as changing their color or shifting their permanent type. There are also several cards that directly allude to older, well-known cards, such as the Magus cycle: creatures that are similar to the cards Cursed Scroll, Nevinyrral's Disk, Memory Jar, Mirror Universe, and Candelabra of Tawnos.

Five new dragon legends were created in enemy-color combinations, based loosely on the five dragon legends in friendly-color combinations from Invasion. [4] Another Magus cycle—creature cards that refer to cards from the past—made its appearance as well; the cycle in Future Sight echoes enchantments from past sets. The unphasing of Shiv threatens to tear these rifts, destroying the plane of Dominaria, and in turn the entire multiverse.[15]. © Valve Corporation. Take your favorite fandoms with you and never miss a beat. There are cards with the same name as all three sets. Whenever a creature with Poisonous X deals combat damage to an opponent, that opponent gets X poison counters (ten or more poison counters causes a player to lose the game). Each color has two cards with Split Second – one uncommon and one rare. Older cards with this ability have been updated with this keyword.
Time Spiral features 301 cards, plus 121 special "timeshifted" reprint cards from Magic past. The expansion symbolof the set is an hourglass to reinforce the time themes and to imply the idea that time is running out. [12][3] These cards have normal rarity symbols as opposed to purple, and are considered a part of the expansion, not a separate sub-set. All trademarks are property of their respective owners in the US and other countries. A cycle of five legendary lands, several which were previously done in another form to help show the degradation of Dominaria.
