Amonkhet is a top-down-designed Magic set, meaning that it was designed and developed with flavor in mind first. The set is inspired by Ancient Egypt mixed with imagery referencing Nicol Bolas.
Amonkhet contains 269 cards (20 basic lands, 101 commons, 80 uncommons, 53 rares, 15 mythic rares) and includes randomly inserted premium versions of all cards. The expansion symbol is a pyramid. The Planeswalker decks contain 10 additional cards that are considered to be part of the set (2 mythic planeswalkers, 2 rares, 2 uncommons, 2 commons and 2 common dual taplands). These are numbered #270/269 to #279/269. The other 8 dual taplands appear in the Deck Builder's Toolkit (#279/269 to #280/287)  Full-art basic lands appear in approximately one out of every four boosters and are available in other products as well. The set introduces punch cards with markers and counters to the game.
