Regular / Draft Boosters
These are you old regular boosters. Each Core Set 2021 booster contains:
- 10 common cards
- 3 uncommon cards
- 1 rare or mythic rare card
- 1 land card
- 1 token/ad card
On average, one out of three boosters contains a foil card (of any rarity) that replaces a common card. It’s also possible that you get a Showcase or borderless version of a card.
You can buy Core Set boosters separately, in a Bundle or in a Booster Box.
Each Bundle contains:
- 10 Core Set 2021 Draft Booster Packs
- 20 basic lands
- 20 foil basic lands
- 1 alternate art foil Pack Leader
- 1 oversized 20-sided die
A great benefit of the Bundle is that everything comes packed into a nice sturdy box, which is perfect for storing Magic cards.
Besides, you’ll also get this goodest boy. For a newer players lands might also come in handy, but if you have a lot of them you’re also getting 20 foil ones, so you’ll be able to pimp your decks.
All of this makes Bundle perfect product for someone who just wants to crack some boosters and get some extra Magic swag.
However, if you want to play a draft with friends at home, you’ll need a whole booster box. Of course, you could also buy 4 Bundles, but that would probably less cost-efficient.
Each Booster Box contains 36 boosters (540 cards) plus a Buy-a-Box promo card. For M21, this card is Rin and Seri, Inseparable.
Whether you’re buying your box on Amazon or in your LGS, contact the seller before or check the listing to see if you’ll get the promo. They are only available until the supply lasts.
Booster boxes are great for everyone who likes to get a bunch of cards from the newest set or if you want to draft at home. Buying a booster box is usually cheaper then just buying 36 boosters separately.
Each Collector Booster contains 15 cards + 1 token:
- 1 foil showcase card / borderless card of any rarity
- 1 foil showcase / borderless common or uncommon
- 1 non-foil showcase / borderless rare or mythic
- 2 non-foil showcase / borderless commons or uncommons
- 2 foil regular / borderless rares or mythic
- 1 non-foil extended art rare or mythic
- 1 foil showcase basic land
- 2 foil uncommons
- 4 foil commmons or lands
- 1 foil token
That means each Collector Booster contains 4-5 rares and mythics and 10-11 commons and uncommons. All of those cards are either foil or have special art (or both).
You can get cards like Ugin, the Spirit Dragon you see bellow.
As such, Collector Boosters are great for everyone who likes cards with amazing alternate art or cards in foil. You can find a detailed information about Core 2021 Collector Booster contents here.
If you want to buy multiple (10+) Collector Boosters, you’ll get a better deal by buying a whole Collector Booster Box.
The box contains 12 boosters, which gives you a total of 180 cards:
- 48-60 rares or mythics
- 120-132 commons or uncommons
All of them are either in foil or have a special art. That’s quite nice collection already, from a single box! You can check its price on Amazon.
Between all Core Set 2021 products, there’s also one that’s free.
Welcome Boosters come as a replacement for the Welcome Decks. These boosters aren’t for sale, but are free for new players. If you’re a new player you can get one from your LGS (Local Game Store). You can use Wizards’ Store Locator to find a store near you.
Each Welcome Booster contains 10 cards, from all five Magic colors. They include powerful rares (like Niv-Mizzet, Parun), premium art cards and also a Planeswalker. Cards are hand-selected by Magic’s design studio.
These boosters also include informational cards, that guide new players towards next steps in their Magic journey. In certain regions, Welcome Booster comes with an Arena code, which redeems for an introductory deck.
If you don’t want to build your own deck, or if you’d like to have at least a starting point – you can get a preconstructed deck. You can get them as a Planeswalker Decks or in a MTG Arena Starter Kit.
Let’s take a look at both of them.
Core Set 2021 Planeswalker Decks
Planeswalker decks have returned! These 60-card decks aren’t available outside the Core Sets anymore. We’re getting five of them this time around, one deck for each color.
Each deck contains a Planeswalker card, which isn’t as strong as some of the regular planeswalkers, however they’re still fun and a great buy for newer players.
Besides that, each deck also contains a single Core 2021 booster pack and an Arena Code for a copy of the same deck on MTG Arena.
Basri is a new planeswalker from the Egyptian themed plane Amonkhet. His deck plays a bunch of small creatures and buffs them with +1/+1 counters.
Teferi’s deck does what blue decks do best – it draws tons of cards! Deck also contains a bunch of cards that synergize with card draw.
The black deck cares about the graveyard. When your creatures die, you get all sorts of benefits. Then you can get them back from the grave with Liliana or with some other cards.
As you can expect from Chandra, there’s a lot of burning going on in this deck. Burn your opponents, burn their creatures, and make you aggressive creatures grow while you’re at it.
Be Garruk. Play big creatures. Then play bigger creatures. Great deck for everyone who likes… you guessed it – big creatures.
MTG Arena Starter Kit is a great product for beginners. You get two 60-card decks, so if you and your buddy want to start playing Magic, that’s a great way to do so.
MTG Arena (the PC game) offers the easiest way to learn Magic. That’s why Wizards incorporated some of that into this product. For example, you’ll get an Arena code, that can be used twice, once by you and once by your friend. You’ll both get a copy of both decks on Arena.

Although not technically a Core 2021 product, Jumpstart boosters are still thematically tied to this set.
The idea behind Jumpstart boosters is that you mash two boosters together and you get a deck. Each booster has a specific theme. Therefore you can get some weird combinations like Cat-Goblins or Elves-Pirates.
Afterwards, you play against another player who did the same. So if you’re organizing a game night, you’ll need two packs per person.
