What’s inside the Commander Legends Collector Booster? Borderless cards, alternate art planeswalkers and cards with new special foil treatment.
Today we’ll check everything you could get in the Commander Legends Collector Booster. At the end of the article we’ll also discuss if this special booster is worth buying. Let’s get to it.
Commander Legends Collector Booster Contents
Each Commander Legends Collector Booster contains 15 cards + 1 token:
- 1 foil-etched Commander (rare or mythic)
- 1 foil-etched reprinted Commander (rare or mythic)
- 1 extended art non-legendary card (rare or mythic)
- 1 foil non-legendary card, might have extended art (rare or mythic)
- 2 foil Commanders (uncommon or rare or mythic)
- 1 foil-etched Commander (uncommon)
- 1 extended art non-legendary card (common or uncommon)
- 2 foil non-legendary cards, might have extended art (common or uncommon)
- 5 foil cards (common)
- 1 foil double-sided token
That’s quite a lot to take in, so here’s this information in a table, in case that works better for you.
|1||R / M||Commander||foil-etched|
|1||R / M||reprinted Commander||foil-etched|
|1||R / M||non-legendary card||extended art|
|1||R / M||non-legendary card||foil (might be extended)|
|2||U / R / M||Commander||foil|
|1||C / U||non-legendary card||foil-etched|
|2||C / U||non-legendary card||foil (might be extended)|
|1||T||double- sided token||foil|
So in total you’ll get:
- 4-6 rares or mythics
- 1-6 uncommons
- 5-8 commons
All of these cards will either be in foil, or have the special art treatment – maybe even both! Each pack will have 5 cards that can be your commanders. That’s probably a record of some kind.
Where to Buy Commander Legends Collector Booster?
As usual, you might get Commander Legends Collector Booster at your local game store. Besides, you can also order them on Amazon.
If you’ll decide to buy multiple Collector Boosters, it might be a better idea to get a whole box of 12 boosters. It’ll usually cost you less than buying them separately.
As we said before, each card in the Collector Booster is either foil or has one of the following styles:
- Extended art
Here’s what they look like.
Both Planeswalkers in the set got the Borderless treatment with the alternate art. As you can see the art is different than the regular version and it expands right to the edge.
Foil-etched treatment is something that we see here for the very first time. The cards have a new frame, but the new foiling provides a really cool new look. You can see how they look in paper in the following video:

Each one of the 69 new legendary creature in the set will get this treatment. Besides that, Wizards also picked 32 popular legendary creatures from Magic’s past and reprinted them with this treatment as well.
Extended Art Cards
Extended art cards have a slightly bigger art box, that goes all the way from the left to the right edge. All non-legendary rares and mythics from Commander Legends will have this treatment.
Is Commander Legends Collector Booster Worth Buying?
Once again, there isn’t one correct answer to this question. It depends on what you want to get from your boosters.
If you want to draft Commander Legends, you should stick to regular Commander Legends boosters, which are also cheaper. (Check their price on Amazon.) Each regular booster contains 20 cards with 2 guaranteed legends. A regular Commander Legends booster box contains 24 boosters, which is perfect for 8 player draft.
But what if you:
- want to get lots of foils, and extended art cards
- don’t plan to draft
- don’t mind the higher price to get more exciting stuff
In that case, it might be a fine choice to get Commander Legends Collector Booster.
Each Commander Legends Booster Box contains 12 Collector Boosters. This means you’ll get 48-64 rares or mythics per box. All of them will be either foil or have special art treatment (sometimes even both). In total you’ll get 60 legendary creatures or planeswalkers.
So overall you get approximately the same amount of rares/mythics per dollar spent as in a regular booster box. As we said, the rares here will have premium versions.
All in all, there are three major factors to consider, when deciding between different boosters.
- Do you want to Draft? If so, pick the regular box.
- Do you really like foils and extended art cards? If so, Collector Boosters have plenty of those.
- Do you have a low budget? In that case, go for regular boosters, or just skip buying Magic cards this time around.
To wrap it up, if you don’t mind spending a bit extra and if you like playing cool looking cards in Commander, getting Commander Legends Collector Booster seems great.
