Lorwyn booster pack contains 15 cards per pack. Distribution is 1 rare, 3 uncommon, and 11 commons per pack. Released in October of 2007, Lorwyn is the first set in the Lorwyn block. The set contains 301 black-bordered cards (80 rare, 80 uncommon, 121 common, and 20 lands).

Lorwyn is the 66th Magic the Gathering set, and 43rd expert level set. It is codenamed "Peanut". The pre-release events for this set were held on September 29–30, 2007.

The designers of the set were Aaron Forsythe, Mark Rosewater, Paul Sottosanti, Brady Dommermuth, Nate Heiss, and Andrew Finch.

Lorwyn is set in a more traditional fantasy world, inspired by Welsh folklore. The plane is a pastoral world inhabited by several major races: boggarts (goblins), faeries, elves, giants, treefolk, merfolk, elementals (including the flamekin) and kithkin.

Lorwyn saw the release of an entirely new card type, the Planeswalker. This marks the first time that Wizards has added a new card type to the current game, as Alpha introduced all current card types, other than the type "Tribal". A single tribal card, Bound in Silence, was printed as a timeshifted card in Future Sight.

The set has a tribal theme, focusing heavily on creature subtypes, revolving around eight primary creature types. Each of these appear in two or more colors, with one as the primary color. Another significant creature type is the shapeshifter type, all of which have the ability "changeling." Creatures with changeling have all creature types. This plays into the tribal mechanics which grant bonuses to creatures of certain types. Though these changelings counts as humans for the purposes of the rules, no humans are found in the world of Lorwyn, or are printed on the cards. This marks yet another fundamental change of the game, as this will be the first set to have no humans since their introduction as a creature subtype in Mirrodin. (Although humans had been in all sets since the beginning of the game, they did not have their own subtype until Mirrodin, instead only having subtypes based on their classes.) However, several of the planeswalkers, although they have no creature type, are physically humans.

The second set of the Lorwyn block is called Morningtide. A third set, codenamed "Jelly", was originally planned as part of Lorwyn block, but partway into the design of Lorwyn, that block was changed to a two-set block. Jelly was revealed as Shadowmoor, the first set of a second two-set block. The two blocks were linked through synergy and rotated through the official tournament formats as a single, four-expansion unit.

The Lorwyn block features a new keyword action known as clash. Clash involves two players revealing the top cards of the libraries. The person who reveals the card with the highest mana cost, wins the clash, and gets a bonus on the card played.

The Tenth Edition Starter games include basic land cards printed in Lorwyn. Also, certain Tenth Edition booster packs feature art from Lorwyn on the back of a rules card or token card.

Five theme decks have been released as part of the set, one more than the standard four-per-expansion, which has been a long-time trend. The preconstructed theme decks are: "Kithkin Militia" (White), "Merrow Riverways" (White/Blue), "Boggarts' Feast" (Black/Red), "Elvish Predation" (Black/Green), and "Elementals' Path" (White/Blue/Black/Red/Green).
