Magic: The Gathering Modern Horizons 3 Expansion Is Up for Preorder


Fans of Magic: The Gathering CCG have a wealth of new expansions available for preorder (you can see them all at Amazon here). A couple of the expansions are video game crossovers, including Fallout and Assassin’s Creed. But one of the most anticipated MTG expansions that’s newly available for preorder is Modern Horizons 3. These cards are available in a variety of options, and they ship June 14. It’s a lot to sift through, so let’s break it all down.
