Exodus

Exodus is the fourteenth Magic expansion and was released in 1998 as the last set in the Tempest block. Two changes were made to Magic cards with the release of Exodus. Color-coding of the expansion symbol to indicate the rarity level of a card was added. In general, common cards use a black-filled expansion symbol. Uncommon cards use a solid silver-filled expansion symbol. Rare cards use a gold-filled expansion symbol. A collector number (the number of the card-and how many are in the set) was added along the bottom of a card.
