This year, we aren’t getting just one, but two Innistrad sets! Crimson Vow releases in November, and it’s bringing us another Collector Booster. So if you’re wondering what you could get in it, you’ve come to the right place, because today we’ll examine Crimson Vow Collector Booster contents.
What is in the Crimson Vow Collector boosters? A lot of good stuff, as it turns out. You can get a bunch of foils, cards with alternate art and special frames. We’ll talk about everything you need to know, and at the end of the article, we’ll also discuss if Crimson Vow Collector Booster is worth it.

Where to Get Crimson Vow Collector Booster?
You can usually get Crimson Vow Collector Boosters in your local game stores. Additionally, they are sometimes available at the big retail stores like Walmart. Of course, you can also order them on Amazon, and avoid the hassle of trying to find them at a store.
Crimson Vow Collector Booster – List of Styles
Usually, there are four different special styles of cards in a Collector Booster. There are two new styles, and borderless and extended arts. However, Crimson Vow has five total styles, thanks to the Dracula Series cards:
- Dracula Series (Special)
- Fang Frames (Showcase)
- Eternal Night (Showcase, returning)
- Borderless (returning)
- Extended (returning)
Additionally, you can also get a regular version of a card — but in foil.
This are the big draw to the Crimson Vow Collector Booster box, as they bring Bram Stoker’s Dracula novel to life – at least in the game of MTG.
There are 18 cards in the Dracula Series. These are not just characters, but also locations and objects, inspired by the original novel. They use the same treatment as the Godzilla cards. That means that these are mechanically the same as the regular versions of the cards that can be found in Crimson Vow.
However, these have bot an alternate art and a name, a flavor text from the novel. These are certainly spectacular!
Fang frames are a special, well, frames. Cards with this treatment also feature an alternate artwork. As the name suggests, the treatment is used on each of the thirty Vampires from the Crimson Vow.
Oh, and while Sorin the Mirthless isn’t technically a Vampire creature, he still has the Fang treatment as well.
Eternal Night styles are back. They were included in Midnight Hunt, and they are still here in Crimson Vow. The artwork features the black-and-white style, inspired by classic horror films.
Which cards got this treatment? Each legendary creature in the set, except for the majority of the legendary Vampires – the ones that got the fang treatment instead.
Besides these, we’re also getting a couple that you probably know from the previous Collector Booster Boxes. First up, the borderless cards.
How are they different from the regular cards? Well, there are three differences:
- The card has a different artwork.
- The borderless card doesn’t have the regular border. Instead, the art extends all the way to the edges.
- Flavor text and reminder text is removed. (While this doesn’t apply to Sorin the Mirthless, it certainly makes some other cards more clear.)
All of this makes an amazing card. Each planeswalker from Crimson Vow gets the borderless treatment. Additionally, the cycle of five enemy slow lands, also gets the same treatment.
Extended Art Cards
The other familiar version are the Extended art cards. These can be similar to the borderless versions at first sight. However, the artwork extends just to the left and right border – it doesn’t go all the way to the top. Furthermore, the artwork is the same as the regular version of the card, so there’s that.
Once again, both the reminder text and the flavor text are removed, which makes for a clearer text box. Each rare in the set that didn’t get any other style, gets the extended art treatment.
Is Crimson Vow Collector Booster Worth Buying?
Well, it depends. Crimson Vow Collector Booster will be worth it for some players, but not necessarily for everyone. Let’s see on which factors that depends.
Crimson Vow Collector Booster isn’t worth it, if you:
- Don’t like alternate art cards and foils.
- Want to draft the set. (In that case, you’ll want to get a Draft Booster Box.)
- Aren’t sure if you can afford it currently.
Crimson Vow Collector Booster is worth it, if you:
- Like to collect and play with alternate art cards.
- Really enjoy the Innistrad and Crimson Vow themes. (Yay, Vampires!)
- Enjoy opening boosters with lots of exciting cards.
- Don’t mind the higher price.
If you’ll buy multiple Crimson Vow Collector Boosters, remember that it’s usually better value to get a whole booster box instead of twelve separate boosters. By buying a whole box, you’ll often get one or two boosters more for the same price.
That’s all about Crimson Vow Collector Booster contents so far. If you have any additional questions about it, let us know in the comments below. We’ll get back to you as fast as we can.
If you’re a Commander player, you’ll be happy to learn that there are two new Commander decks coming with this set. One is Vampire tribal, and the other looks like it might focus on Spirits. You can find the Crimson Vow Commander decks here.

Until next time, have fun, and may your Collector Boosters contain that one card you really want for your deck. In foil and with alternate art, of course!
