Magic: The Gathering Rarities: Heroes Of The Realm 2019, Part 2

Welcome, players, collectors, and fans of Magic: The Gathering, the premier trading card game by Wizards of the Coast! A couple of days ago, we went over three of the four cards from 2019's Heroes of the Realm awarded to various Wizards of the Coast employee teams for projects they excelled in. Today, we will be looking into the other four of the seven total Magic cards awarded. Let's dig in without any further delay!

The first card we wish to discuss in this article is Champions of Archery, which was awarded to the team responsible for the Throne of Eldraine expansion set for Magic. The set itself is so well-designed to a majority of the public that it really speaks for itself here, but the worldbuilding and mechanics intertwined seem to give merit to this award.

Next, we have Myntasha, Honored One, the card awarded to those responsible for the first Modern Horizons set. Interestingly, Myntasha, Honored One's initials are basically MH1, which is the set code for Modern Horizons.
