Earlier today, Wizards of the Coast announced the impending release of Unsanctioned, the newest in their line of "un-"sets, which also includes UngluedUnhinged and Unstable. This pre-constructed set features sixteen new Un-cards, as well as reprints of the Un-cards from previous sets, and a new regular and premium variant of each basic land. Each Unsanctioned package comes with five 30-card decks (one per color), ten basic lands, two six-sided dice, ten double-sided tokens, and a reusable box.

In any Unsanctioned match, each of the two players will pick up two of the 30-card decks and shuffle them together to create a single 60-card deck. Like previous Un-sets, these highly bizarre cards will be disallowed in regular Magic play, and will be denoted by having silver backgrounds instead of black; the basic lands, however, will be black-bordered and legal for tournament play. Gavin Verhey, Senior Magic Designer at Wizards of the Coast, stated that Unsanctioned matches should have the feel of a "wrestling match".

Unsanctioned will hit store shelves on Leap Day, February 29, 2020.
