Fate Reforged is the 66th Magic expansion, and the second in the Khans of Tarkir block. It will be released on January 23, 2015. Fate Reforged is a small expansion. Fate Reforged was announced at the Wizards of the Coast panel at PAX Prime on August 31, 2014. It contains 185 cards and includes randomly inserted premium versions of all cards. The expansion symbol of the set is a stylized representation of two opposing planes or realities. This small set is designed to be drafted with both large sets of the block, while the large sets are never drafted together. Fate Reforged draft is one pack of Fate Reforged and then two packs of Khans of Tarkir. Because the clans of Fate Reforged are less defined, the set does not contain three-color gold cards. The color identity of the cards is instead marked by the use of hybrid ability activation costs (for example a Temur card with green mana cost, and blue/red hybrid ability cost). This allows for these cards to be played in two-color decks (in this example either green/blue or green/red). Fate Reforged will be sold in 16-card boosters (the 16th card being a marketing card), five intro packs, a clash pack and a fat pack. The fat pack contains 9 boosters, a spin-down life counter, 80 lands, a full color insert of the Reforged cards and two deck boxes. At the Fate Reforged prerelease on January 17/18, 2015, players choose their clan. While they complete three achievements, they follow in Sarkhan's footsteps to attempt to alter fate; they get to "Heal Ugin" and "Gain a glimpse of the future". The latter comes in the form of a special "Ugin's Fate" booster pack containing two alternate art cards that show how the world has changed in the new timeline, a token and a basic land card. There's a pool of 40 alternate art cards with a holo foil stamp (mainly from Khans of Tarkir, a few from Fate Reforged, one mythic), the main change in the art being that there are dragons now. In addition, the basic lands also have alternate art, showing off Tarkir of the past.
