Throne of Eldraine is a top-down designed set, inspired by the romantic Arthurian legend of Camelot on one hand and Grimms' Fairy Tales on the other. Besides Grimm, the set covers a range of European fairy tales that come from a variety of sources. Mark Rosewater stated that he had been waiting 10 years to do a Grimm's world, comparing it to the Lorwyn–Shadowmoor block that had erred in being too true to the source material rather than hitting the tropes that players knew. Most of the top-down designs are fairy tale, but more of the nuts and bolts cards are Arthurian.
The main set contains 269 cards (20 basic lands, 101 commons, 80 uncommons, 53 rares, 15 mythic rares), and includes randomly inserted premium versions of all these cards. Additional cards are found in the set's collector boosters, planeswalker decks, and brawl decks. A unique Buy-a-Box promotional card is also considered to be part of the set. As of this set, the additional cards are numbered sequentially but don't feature the denominator anymore. So collector numbers like "307/300" are a thing of the past. Cards with alternate card frames have another card number than the original version. Borderless planeswalkers are numbered #270-272, Showcase cards are numbered #273-302, the Buy-a-Box is #303, planeswalker deck cards are numbered #304-313 and brawl deck cards are numbered #314-333. extended artwork cards are numbered #334-391. The Bundle promo is numbered #392. Finally there are FNM-treatment cards from the Universal promo pack list numbered #393-397. Both regular and foil versions of these cards may be found in the collector boosters except for the Foil Buy-a-Box promo; the two foil Planeswalker Deck Planeswalkers, the Bundle promo and the common nonfoil showcase cards.
2018 World Champion Javier Dominguez is depicted on a newly introduced player spotlight card.
