Wizards of the Coast LLC has announced a thrilling new update to its insanely popular card game - Innistrad: Midnight Hunt. Now available to play on Magic: The Gathering Arena, the latest and highly anticipated expansion set lets players dive into a mystical world of werewolves and witches using double-faced cards and exciting new mechanics.

MTG Arena’s Innistrad: Midnight Hunt follows the tale of werewolf Planeswalker Arlinn Kord, searching for the Moonsilver Key in preparation for warding off the mysterious dangers of the night. On the eve of the Harvesttide Festival, can you protect Innistrad and help restore balance to the plane?

Fan favourite Innistrad is all things creepy and horrific, and the latest expansion pack will have something for both old and new fans alike. "In some ways it was harder," says Creative Manager Tom Jenkot. "We know this world and what it looks like. That always helps us make resonant card treatments."
