Future Sight Magic The Gathering Cards
Future Sight is an expansion set, codenamed "Pop", for the trading card
game Magic: The Gathering. The set was released worldwide on May 4,
2007. The pre-release events for this set were held on April 21 and
April 22, 2007
Future Sight contains 180 cards. The expansion symbol is an eye looking through a rift portal. The designers of the set are Mark Rosewater (lead), Matt Cavotta, Devin Low, Mark Gottlieb, Ryan Miller, and Zvi Mowshowitz. The developers of the set are Mike Turian (lead), Matt Cavotta, Matt Place, and Brian Schneider.
The set has "Timeshifted" cards, as first confirmed by Mark Rosewater. Unlike Time Spiral, the Timeshifted cards are not direct reprints of older Magic cards but rather are cards that may appear in future sets.These cards have normal rarity symbols as opposed to purple, and are considered a part of the expansion, not a separate sub-set. Also, the Timeshifted cards in Future Sight have been given a new frame. Another difference is that Future Sight has many mechanics spread among many cards, instead of several focused mechanics in many cards.
Another Magus cycle--creature cards that refer to cards from the past--made its appearance as well; the cycle in Future Sight echoes enchantments from past sets. For example, the card Magus of the Moon has the same ability as the enchantment Blood Moon.
Future Sight also introduced a new supertype for non-creature permanents: tribal. Tribal cards utilize a subtype that matches a creature type. The tribal supertype had been planned for the Lorwyn set, and was timeshifted into future in the card Bound in Silence, a "Rebel Enchantment".
