Standard now rotates only once each year, with the release of the October large set. So Scars of Mirrodin will enter Standard on its release and Shards of Alara block and Magic 2010 will leave. The Standard format after the release of Scars of Mirrodin will consist of Zendikar Block, Magic 2011, and Scars of Mirrodin.

* Scars is the first block where the mechanical themes have grown out of a specific storyline.
* Scars gives players a shot at glory in the coming conflict.
* All cards in Scars of Mirrodin are affiliated with one of the two opposing factions in the set.
* There's a watermarked symbol for Mirrodin, and a watermarked symbol for Phyrexia
* Blurb: The Corrosion Has Begun.
The metal plane of Mirrodin shines under the light of five suns . . . but dark forces have begun to assemble.
Which side will you command?
* Blurb: Journey back to this harsh metallic plane. This time, will you leave in one piece?
* Elspeth gets a new planeswalker card
* New planeswalker is named Koth. Monocolored, braided hair and shirtless (possibly Vulshok)
* Tezzeret will play a role in the story.
* The search for Karn is featured in the accompanying novel.
* Features an old Mirrodin mechanic, probably sunburst.
* Confirmed creature-types: humans, elves, leonin, loxodonts, fragons, golems, zombies, vampires, myr and nim.
* There are "tons of artifacts" in Scars

SOM's 3rd plainswalker confirmed! Venser, the human that became a planeswalker is confirmed to be printed in SOM,

**Elspeth Tirel's art was released... it's possible from what we see that she could be G/W!**

Elspeth is once again mono white! Doug and I scored a play set of her and Venser to split between us. I heard planeswalkers were good?

On venser um, answer him in 3 turns or you lose... blink woo, sea gate oracle, halimar, anything with wither counters, um fog you with gideon, blink him then attack you with him, give Baneslayer vigilance.... do I need to continue? Ok POP elspeths ultimate POP venser ultimate and you have token dudes and you opponent has jack SHIT as you exile their remaining lands hahahahaha I love u/w! I'm gonna be running 9 mainboarded walkers post rotation

Card Type: Planeswalker

Subtype: Elspeth

Casting Cost: 3WW

Card Text: +2: You gain 1 life for each creature you control.
-2: Put three 1/1 white soldier tokens onto the battlefield.

-5: Destroy all other permanents except for lands and tokens.

Loyalty: 4
