Aether Revolt (AER), the second set and smaller set of the Kaladesh block, will be released January 20, 2017. Aether Revolt will contain 184 different cards and be the 73nd Magic Expansion overall. The expansion symbol will be reminiscent of a flower, similar to the Kaladesh symbol. Other than that, information about this steampunk-inspired set is still very scarce at this point. As we learned in Magic Origins Kaladesh is the birthplane of the famous planeswalker Chandra Nalaar. Most likely we will learn all about the Consuls, who rule this plane using artificial creatures and machines fueled by aether, in the first set. This could set the stage for the Aether Revolt in the second half of the block. We saw the amount of havoc Chandra was able to cause in this plane, where Fire Magic is strictly banned, already as a teenager. It isn't hard to imagine her coming back to Kaladesh to lead a revolt against the Consuls, who hunted and tortured her as a kid. Will Chandra return to her former home to avenge the death of her parents? We only know the slogan of the set: “It's Time to Take the Power Back”, which could also be quoting someone else, like Saheeli Rai – another Human planeswalker on Kaladesh.
