Our trip back to Zendikar wouldn't be complete without some changes to the Comprehensive Rules—have to make all those shiny new cards work, after all. We also made a small number of adjustments to existing cards in the Oracle database.

When they're finalized, you can check them out on the rules page and Gatherer. Let's dig in!
