Is Ikoria Collecotr Booster Worth It?
Okay, so now we know what’s in the Ikoria Collector Booster. The question is – is it worth buying them?
Well, it depends on what you want and like. If you just want to play draft, then it’s not the product for you. You just want a regular booster box of Ikoria, as the boosters are made especially for drafting.
Same goes if you don’t like shinny cards with alternate art, but just want cards for your Standard deck. You can also just buy singles.
However if you do like to expand your collection with premium and rare cards, then Ikoria Collector Booster is a great buy. Even with just one booster you’ll get 15 cards, either foil or with alternate art plus a foil token on top of it.
These boosters usually also contain some great legendary creatures and are therefore great for Commander players. And that’s without mentioning some great Commander cards like Ruinous Ultimatum and Triome lands.
So if you want to get one, you can order it on Amazon. As we mentioned before, if you’ll be buying lots of them, it’s a good idea to get a Collector Booster Box, which comes with 12 Collector boosters.
That’s all about Ikoria Collector Booster. Wondering what decks you can build with the sweet cards you can get there? Check our article about 20 Ikoria Standard decks, featuring the new cards.
