    I haven't actually updated the OP yet, but only the 1st set cares about wedges. The 2nd and 3rd sets do not have a wedge theme (vaguely related to the fact that the block goes in reverse chronological order, so dragons aren't extinct later on in the block).

    Khans of Tarkir
    - Wedges! Tarkir is Bizarralara!
    - Morph returns!
    - Large/small/large where the small set is drafted with both large sets
    - The block is a time travel story 
    - Khans of Tarkir is a wedge set but it is not a wedge block as the story is about change
    - The five clans are based off of aspects of dragons: endurance, cunning, ruthlessness, speed and savagery (based around a single color in WUBRG order with one ally and one enemy)
    - Each clan gets it’s own mechanic plus morph so there are six mechanics in Khans
    - Each clan has a three-color leader (aka the khans) who were all introduced


    From The Vault: Annihilation
    - We showed four cards: Armageddon, Rolling Earthquake, Living Death and Cataclysm, all, except Rolling Earthquake with art either new or never before printed on a card

    Speed vs. Cunning
    - The two sides represent aspects of the dragon matching the clans Mardu and Jeskai.
    - We showed off Zurgo Helmsmasher - 2RWB - 7/2 - Haste, Must attack each turn, indestructible on your turn, whenever a creature damaged by Zurgo dies, put a +1/+1 on Zurgo.

    Duel Decks, Anthology
    - New product, combines the first four Duel Decks (Elves vs. Goblins, Jace vs. Chandra, Divine vs. Demonic & Garruk vs. Liliana) all in new card frames
    Commander
    - Monocolor decks 
    - Commanders are cycle of monocolored planeswalkers (special ones allowed to be Commanders)
    - We showed off Teferi - 4UU - Loyalty 5 - +1: Look at top 2 cards of library, one in hand & one on bottom of library. -1: Untap up to four permanents. -10: you get an emblem letting you play planeswalkers abilities on other players’ turns. This card can be played as a Commander
    - Cycle of monocolored legendary creatures that are characters from Magic’s past that never got a card
    - Showed off Ghoulcaller Gisa - 3BB - 3/4 - B, Sacrifice another creature: Put X 2/2 zombie tokens onto the battlefield where X is sacced creature’s power.

    Prereleases
    - Instead of five prerelease cards, one per color now forty, eight per color
    - Khans prerelease will have you pick a clan, five boxes
    - Activity where you fight for your clan

    Lot of returning races, Orcs, Aven, some tiger-based Leonin race, Orochi (called Naga here), Goblins, and I guess Giants.

    Anyone have a clue what that thing on the right of the Jeskai group art is? Merfolk? Vedalken? Flamekin? Literally.

    Never seen it before, maybe it's dragon related?

    Damn, I forgot about a tweet. The Jeskai's signature races are Djinns and Efreets. So it's one of those two.

    Oh I had this crazy Idea...

    Morph in non-Creature Spells...most Specifically a Cycle of Sorceries with Morph
