What’s in the Bloomburrow Bundle?

Bundles consistently end up among the best-selling products with every MTG set. No wonder, as they’re moderately priced, come with a great mix of boosters and additional items, and double as a storage, that looks great on a shelf.

So, will Bloomburrow’s version perform just as well as the others? We’ll figure it out in this article, as we check the Bloomburrow Bundle contents. At the end, we’ll also discuss whether or not this product is worth buying.

Bloomburrow Bundle Contents

Bloomburrow Bundle Contents

Each Bloomburrow Bundle contains:

  • 9 Bloomburrow Play boosters
  • 1 foil promo card with alternate art
  • 20 full-art basic lands (10 foil, 10 non-foil)
  • 10 regular basic lands (5 foil, 5 non-foil)
  • 1 storage box
  • 1 large spindown life counter

In the following section, we’ll explore each of these items in more detail.

Play Boosters

Each of the nine included Play boosters contains 14 cards total. The rarity breakdown is as follows:

  • 1-4 rares or mythics
  • 3-5 uncommons
  • 6-9 commons
  • 1 land card

1-4 rares doesn’t really tell much, does it? So, on average, you can expect around 1.45 rares per booster. With 9 boosters, you’ll be opening a total of 126 cards, with an average of 13 rares total.

On top of that, one of the cards is always in foil, and in 20% of boosters the land slot is also upgraded to a foil.

Promo Card

The promo card is the same in all Bloomburrow Bundles. It’s always a rare from the main set, but with alternate art and in foil. This alt-art is exclusive to the Bundles, and isn’t released in other products.

On the left you can see the regular version of the card, and on the right is the promo card that you get in the bundle.

This otter probably won’t be worth a ton, but it can be a useful card in deck with a lot of noncreature cards. For two mana you get a 1/2, which can draw you a card (possibly with multiple options to choose from). You can also use the offspring ability and pay six mana, to put two creatures in play, and potentially “draw” two cards.

Basic Lands

Every Bundle also comes with 30 basic lands. Of these, 20 will feature the splendid full-art variant, while the other 10 will use the regular frames. Half of each group will be foil, and the other half non-foil. This gives you a total of:

  • 10 foil full-art basics
  • 10 non-foil full-art basics
  • 5 foil regular basics
  • 5 non-foil regular basics

All five basic land types will be included in the same numbers. The only uncertainty is how they’ll split their versions. Each full-art land in Bloomburrow actually comes with four versions, one for each season. The following example is the winter-themed Mountain.

These are a great addition, as one can never own too many full-art basic lands. Especially, when they look so great as Bloomburrow basic lands do.

Storage Box

The storage box might not sound very exciting if you aren’t familiar with the bundles. But here’s the twist. The bundles typically feature amazing artwork from the set. So, if you like Bloomburrow themes, you’ll likely enjoy displaying it on your shelf.

Plus, the box is quite sturdy, and will last a very long time. Personally, I still use the box from Gatecrash, which was over 10 years ago. (I had to look that up, and the time does indeed fly.)

Of course, the box is large enough to hold all the cards you open here, plus there’s room for plenty more. Typically, you can fit 400 unsleeved or 300 sleeved cards in there. This means you can fit up to three Commander decks in there.

Spindown Life Counter

Finally, there’s also a spindown life counter, which looks like a big cool D20. Of course, spindowns aren’t dice, as any D&D enthusiast will happily explain you. (The numbers aren’t in the proper order.)

Anyhow, while the spindown isn’t a big deal, it’s still nice to see it included, as it does come in handy. Plus, sometimes they come in really cool colors, and players like to collect them.

So, now that we know the contents, it’s time to answer the big question.

Is Bloomburrow Bundle Worth Buying?

The most value of the Bundle is tied to the nine Bloomburrow Play boosters. How much are these worth? It depends, as the price of a full booster box varies. Let’s say, you can get a box for $160. Since there are 36 boosters in a box, that gives us a price of $4.45 per booster.

By that calculation 9 Play boosters would be worth $40.05. You could typically preorder the Bundle for around $45. So, for the extra five dollars, you’re getting 30 lands (including foil full-arts), promo card, the storage box, and a spindown.

All things considered, that’s a pretty good deal, if you care about the extras. Of course, if the only thing you’re interested from a Bundle are the boosters, then it’s better to just get a whole Play booster box. However, even though the price per booster is lower, the total price is significantly higher.

If you want to make your own calculations, just figure out a price of nine Play boosters, and subtract that amount from the value of a Bundle. What you get is the amount you’re paying for the extras.
