    Set release on November 3, 2023
    24 mechanically unique cards
    Four special Scene Boxes that show off more iconic moments from The Lord of the Rings, Jumpstart Volume 2, and a Special Edition of Collector Boosters with special alternate art, an alternate "Scroll" card frame and a new type of foil treatment
    Cards fall into either the Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle Earth or Tales of Middle Earth Commander sets. 
    Set symbols are the same and numbering is continued
     Lost Caverns of Ixalan

    Special Guest
    https://scryfall.com/search?q=%28game%3Apaper%29+set%3Aspg&unique=cards&as=grid&order=name
    New reprint class introduced with Lost Caverns of Ixalan.

    Booster insert set in the Magic: The Gathering Universes Beyond series.
    Releasing in connection with Lost Caverns of Ixalan on November 17, 2023.
    Both sets feature dinosaurs.
    Summary
    How do we feel about the holiday cards that use the same symbol and numbering as an already released set? Is it confusing?
    talk about card we were looking for yesterday
    How do we feel about two subsets appearing in a single set and do we think they’ll do it again?

MTG Dad moments

Great podcast with great hosts.

Chance2009 ,

No research?!?!?

First time listener and I’ve got to say, How do you do a ratings show on your top 8 cards from Unfinity and just ignore cards because they have too much text or are complicated? Seems like there was almost no effort put into this podcast by one of the hosts.

french kicks ,

Great commander podcast

Both hosts are great. Really liking this commander podcast!
