Wondering what’s inside the Brothers’ War Collector booster? Well, there, there are a bunch of foils and awesome cards with alternate art, plus cards from Universes Beyond. In this article, we’ll take a deep look into the Brothers’ War Collector booster contents to examine all of these card variations. This way, you’ll know exactly what to expect. At the end of the article, we’ll also talk about if this version of Collector booster is worth it.
As you can see, there’s a lot to discuss, so we better get right to it.
Brothers’ War Collector Booster Contents
Each Brothers’ War Collector Booster contains 15 cards + 1 token:
- 6 rares / mythic rares
- 4-5 uncommons
- 5-6 commons
- 1 foil token
All cards either have special art treatment, or are in foil, sometimes even both. The special art treatments are:
- Retro Artifact Schematics
- Transformer Shattered Glass
- Borderless Art
- Extended Art
We’ll talk about each of these below.
Where to Get The Brothers’ War Collector Booster?
You can probably usually get Brothers’ War Collector Boosters at your local game store, and sometimes even at Walmart. Besides, you can also order them on Amazon.
Retro Frame Artifacts
One of the more exciting contents of the Brothers’ War Collector booster are Retro Frame Artifacts. Sure, you can also get them in Brothers’ War Draft Boosters and Set Boosters. However, in them, you only get one per pack, whereas in Collector boosters you can get multiples. Besides, Collector boosters are the only product in which you can get serialized retro schematics.
But wait, what exactly are the Retro Frame Artifacts? They are various popular artifacts from Magic’s past. All of them have the old, retro frames, and they look amazing. They come both in regular version, and with a retro schematic version, which has a special artwork. Here’s one example:
The version on the left is the regular version, and the version on the right is called retro schematic. As we mentioned before, this also comes with a very special twist. 500 of each card in the Retro Frame series come with a number, and with a special rainbow foil.
So this means that you could open a one out of a 500 Wurmcoil Engines in the world. Oh, and actually, it would be the only one with that number. How cool is that? You can find all Retro Frame Artifacts here, where you’ll also find out more about their distribution.
Retro frame artifacts aren’t the only special cards that you can get in Brothers’ War Collector. You could also get Transformer cards, in the special “shattered glass” style.
These cards will only be available in Collector and Set boosters, with the special art treatment much more likely in the Collector boosters. While this isn’t 100% confirmed, you’ll probably have a guaranteed slot for a Transformer card in every Collector boosters. The reason for this is that the Amazon listing states that there will be a “special Mythic Rare” in every pack.
You can find more information about these, and a full list of MTG Transformer cards here.
Borderless & Extended Art Cards
Finally, there are also the borderless and extended art cards. These are the cards that appear in the main set of The Brothers’ War, but they have a special art treatment.
Borderless cards actually have a brand-new art, which extends right to the card’s edge. Essentially eliminating the black border.
Extended art cards don’t have a different art, it’s just slightly bigger. Extended to the right and left edge, but not in the other sections. Once we get some examples, we’ll update this article with them.
Is The Brothers’ War Collector Booster Worth It?
That depends. The Brothers’ War Collector booster can be worth it for some players, but not for everyone. Here are some factors on which that depends:
You shouldn’t buy The Brothers’ War Collector boosters, if you:
- Don’t care about alternate art cards.
- Don’t like cards in Brothers’ War.
- Simply want to draft. (In that case, Draft boosters are much better.)
- Can’t really afford it right now.
On the other hand, you should buy The Brothers’ War Collector boosters, if you:
- Like to collect alternate art card.
- Enjoy the possibility of opening a one-of-a-kind numbered Retro Frame Artifact.
- Really enjoy the cards in Brothers’ War.
- Want to get Transformer cards.
- Want to open a lot of exciting, awesome cards.
- Don’t mind spending a bit extra.
If you decide to purchase multiple Brothers’ War Collector boosters, don’t forget that it’s usually a better value to get a whole booster box, instead of twelve separate boosters. With the same amount spent, you’ll get two more boosters from the box. (At least most of the time.)
Anyway, that’s all about the Brothers’ War Collector booster contents. If you’re still unsure whether you should buy it, you can find Brothers’ War spoilers here. Take a look, and decide if you like this set or no.
One interesting product is also Brothers’ War Gift Edition Bundle, which contains Set boosters, and a Collector booster. If you like both types of boosters, it’s a great value product.
Until next time, have fun, and may your Brothers’ War Collector boosters contain the cards that you’re looking for.
