Standard rotates once each year, with the release of the October large set. Magic 2012 will enter Standard on its release without knocking anything out, then Magic 2011 and Zendikar block will leave Standard with the release of “Shake.” The Standard format between Magic 2012 and “Shake” will consist of Zendikar block, Scars of Mirrodin block, Magic 2011, and Magic 2012. After the release of “Shake,” it will consist of Scars of Mirrodin Block, Magic 2012, and “Shake.”
Spoiler can be found here, but there isn’t anything yet! Bold claim: there will be 20 basic lands.
And there’s some new Chandra art…
