Magic The Gathering Delays Parody Set Unfinity To Second Half Of 2022
Wizards of the Coast has announced it is delaying the Magic the Gathering parody set Unfinity to the second half of 2022.
Unfinity, which was originally scheduled to launch on April 1, is the fourth parody 'Un-set'. Set in an outer space funfair, Unfinity follows in the footsteps of previous Unsets by featuring unique mechanics that simply wouldn't work in the main Magic game. While these cards (denoted by a new acorn-shaped stamp) aren't legal in any format other than those that explicitly use Un-cards, Unfinity is also the first Un-set to include cards that are fully legal in Legacy, Commander, and Vintage.
The set is also noteworthy because of its reprints of the popular Shock Lands like Hallowed Fountain or Godless Shrine. Shock lands are some of the most useful lands in the game, and Unfinity will be including all ten of them in new, sci-fi themed full-art printings.
Unfinity isn't the first MTG set to be delayed by Covid and its resulting supply chain issues, but it is the most drastic, and the most widespread. Innistrad: Crimson Vow set boosters and promo cards were not in stores in time for the set's prerelease on November 12. The set before it, Innistrad: Midnight Hunt, saw similar things happen in Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, the Phillippines, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand.
It's not just Magic that's been affected, either. Most recent Yu-Gi-Oh! expansions have seen delays, including the Tin of Ancient Battles, which wasn't available in many stores at launch last September, and The Grand Creators booster set being pushed back from January 14, 2022 to January 28.
Curiously, these delays aren't expected to impact the next Magic set, Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty, despite it launching on February 18. Though certain regions won't be receiving booster packs in their own language, no delays for Neon Dynasty have been confirmed so far.
