Ignite the Dawn
The archangel Avacyn has returned! A bright, fiery dawn banishes Innistrad’s shadows. Humanity takes up arms and drives back the creatures of the night. With flights of angels overhead, the righteous band together and wield holy light and miraculous magic to restore the balance of their world.

Set Information
The Avacyn Restored TCG set features 244 black-bordered cards, including randomly inserted premium versions of all cards in the set. The Avacyn Restored set is available in booster packs, intro packs, and fat packs. Although it's the third set of the Innistrad block, the Avacyn Restored set will be a large set. This means that Innistrad Block Constructed will be composed of all three sets, but Avacyn Restored will be drafted by itself. Sealed events will use six Avacyn Restored booster packs.

“Miracle! Miracle!”

Set in Innistrad, Avacyn Restored continues the storyline arc of the Innistrad block; but, mechanically and thematically, the expansion is a “reboot” of Innistrad block’s previous two sets, Innistrad and Dark Ascension, but with the setting retained. Avacyn Restored’s focus is shifted from the graveyard, and does not feature cards with flashback or double-faced cards.

Unusual for the third set in a block, Avacyn Restored contains more cards than usual, at 244 cards, and is a large expansion, like Rise of the Eldrazi, also a third-set large expansion and a “reboot” of the Zendikar block. This set contains 15 basic lands, each of which being illustrated by an artist who worked upon the artworks of Innistrad’s basic lands; notably, the Avacyn Restored basic lands depict the same, or a similar, landscape but with a brighter tone, reflecting the change of plane, following the return of the angel Avacyn, from a place of despair and gloom to a place of hope.

Avacyn Restored introduces a novel card frame for the Miracle ability, so as to provide a visual cue to facilitate players identifying cards with Miracle more readily, so as to cast such cards in a timely manner. Cards with Miracle are identifiable by the outwardly radiant lines on the card frame, from around the art and name box; furthermore, the name box features an arrow-like outcropping on the top. The set also features two new planeswalkers; Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, a Moonfolk originally from Kamigawa, and Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded, a human–devil planeswalker (and the first planeswalker with a converted casting cost of 2 mana).
