New 'Magic: The Gathering' Modern Horizons 2 card sets planeswalkers on fire

Magic: The Gathering‘s upcoming Modern Horizons 2 set doesn’t have a grand storyline involving a magic school, or gorgeous Japanese art variants. Rather, the expansion is purely focused on good old fashioned gameplay, bringing back classic cards while also introducing new ones to the game.

Following this, Mashable can exclusively reveal two Uncommon Red cards appearing the Modern Horizons 2 set this June: old favourite Gorilla Shaman, and brand new Enchantment Flame Blitz.

Enter: the hybrid laptop (or just 2-in-1 laptop). It’s a device that you can convert from tablet to laptop and back again with ease.

But when you need more control or need to type something up, you can switch into laptop and keyboard mode.  Read more…
