Shadows over Innistrad is the 70th Magic expansion, and the first in the Shadows over Innistrad block. It was released on April 8, 2016.
Shadows over Innistrad returns to the gothic horror themed plane of Innistrad, emphasising a sense of mystery and creeping dread. The expansion symbol of the set is an upside down reflection of Avacyn's symbol. The set features the same tribal components as the Innistrad block with the five main tribes each being split over an allied color pair. Spirits primarily in white and blue, Zombies in blue and black, Vampires in black and red, Werewolves in red and green, and Humans primarily in green and white. For the mechanics, R&D made a conscious decision to return more to Innistrad the set than Innistrad the block.
Shadows over Innistrad contains 297 cards (15 basic lands, 105 commons, 100 uncommons, 59 rares, 18 mythic rares.
Innistrad is a world beset by terrible evils on all sides and betrayed by the hope it held most dear. Avacyn has finally returned, but what new evils have come with her? Madness is plaguing the inhabitants. Terror falls from the skies on blood-spattered wings and nameless horrors lurk in the shadows. Odd things are afoot: the forces that had protected the humans have been twisted into something dark and strange. Jace Beleren of the Gatewatch investigates its dark mysteries. Meanwhile, Sorin is in search of the whereabouts of Nahiri.
