Well, we got an announcement for next year's sets today:

Winter - Theros: Beyond Death, a focus on Theros's Underworld
Spring - Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths. Looks like a Kaiju/Monster Hunter World type plane.
Summer - Core 2021 with the face being Teferi
Fall - Zendikar Rising. Eldrazi are gone, should be "classic Zendikar"

Theros clearly is going to have devotion again with the recent reveal of quardruple hybrid Fireborn Knight in ELD. No big surprise there. Despite the enchantment theme that was probably the most creatively and mechanically defining mechanic of the set. You really feel it.

No doubt enchantment creatures will be back as well though they could easily create a new different take than bestow or constellation for them. I can really, really see Sagas in this set. The type was incredibly successful, is very evocative and really ties into the lore of the plane. Theran people are known to turn recent events very quickly into tales that are interwoven with their classics. "The Theriad" is incredibly prominent in flavor text across the set, basically the world's story through the lense of the adventures of the Sun's Champions.

I bet the underworld twist will allow for some amazing twists on the existing concepts.

As Sigarda is a native to Innistrad and not able to planeswalk. Not going to happen. I also severely doubt Chittering host is going to make an appearance as it is an Eldrazi, and a large portion of the fandom really dislike them because they literally wrecked two of the most popular planes WotC have made.

You probably don't have Reach, cause I think my joke went over your head.

I suppose going back to theros will be interesting. I hope they have a cool new concept for the ol enchant creature

next year only has 1 new place. I think im getting bored with revisits. if I see ravnica again, and I think I will, I mean, what im saying is revisits have very small if any "innovating". im all for nostalgia. . .that's what dominaria is for
anyone: you can do whatever your imagination wants you have no bounds and your coffers are very full. every year every time you have the opportunity for new.
wizards: how about ravnica for the third time
anyone: ok how about redo kamigawa
wizards: to many issues
anyone: this doesn't. . .your not listening
wizards: zendikar #3 babeeeeee

haha I digress

we are getting three large sets though which is interesting (I guess 4 counting core set)

perhaps ikoria will have meld
I like big monsters so Im interested in this one, mythic beasts, probably a titan cycle, and a god cycle, and a kaiju cycle, and a iconic creature cycle.

they have been getting really good at core sets recently so I expect this one to be cool even though I picture the teferi card to be powerful and expensive to cast. (in other words meh)

zendikar. . .so zendikar. . .for the third time. . .why do I want to go back again? I. . .I don't think I did. . .I don't. . .its not in my top 75% (haha)
that being said they better rock the equipment aspect

currently im not to entertained by this. I want all of the cards.
