OK guys and girls. First I want to tell you about all the sets that are in magic: the gathering, or magic for short, and help you to know just how extensive this game really is. so there is are many sets but for this post im going to focus on just the core sets.
Total number of core sets
counting from the very beginning to today there are 18 current sets out, with the next being planned for July 13th 2018. The first set was called limited edition alpha. It was released in 1993 with a total of 295 cards. With this release of magic, it started one of the biggest trends in the world, . tcg, or trading card games. Of course that’s to say the first “modern” trading card game.
