What’s inside the Modern Horizons 2 Collector Booster? A ton of cool cards, as it turns out. There are foils, cards with alternate art and special frames. In this article we’ll examine Modern Horizons 2 Collector Booster contents to see what you could get. At the end of the article, we’ll also discuss if MH2 Collector Boosters are worth it.
Anyways, let’s get to it!
Modern Horizons 2 Collector Booster Contents
Each Modern Horizons 2 Collector Booster contains 15 cards + 1 token:
- 4 mythic or rare cards (best case scenario is 3 mythics + 1 rare)
- 10 commons and uncommons
- 1 foil-etched basic lands
- 1 foil double-sided token
Here’s a deeper breakdown, if you want one:
- 1 foil etched rare or mythic
- 1 foil old border / sketch / borderless / extended rare or mythic
- 1 sketch / borderless rare or mythic
- 1 extended art rare or mythic
- 2 foil old border / sketch commons or uncommons
- 1 foil-etched common or uncommon
- 1 sketch common or uncommon
- 2 foil regular uncommons
- 4 foil regular commmons
- 1 foil-etched basic land
- 1 foil double-sided token
All of the cards will either be in foil, or they’ll have a special art / border. Sometimes even both. So there’ll be no plain Magic card in the MH2 Collector Booster. Each one will have at least one special distinction.
Where to Get Modern Horizons 2 Collector Booster?
You can often get MH2 Collector Boosters at your local game store. Sometimes even at the big retail stores like Walmart. Besides, you can order them on Amazon.
Each Collector Booster has a special art variation or two. One that’s present in MH2 is the sketch variation. On the left you can see how a regular Urza’s Saga looks like, and on the right, there’s a sketch version of it.
The idea is that it shows you what goes into making of a Magic card.
Artist gets an art description for a certain card. They don’t immediately draw the finished piece. Instead, they do multiple sketches, and send them back to Wizards. One of the sketches gets approved and the artist does the final art version.
Now for the first time, you’ll be able to get the sketch on the art. As you can see in the case of Urza’s Saga even the sketches truly look amazing and they stand out as something we’ve never seen before.
Borderless cards are cards with alternate are and without borders – the art extends to all four edges of the card. Just take for example the awesome reprint of Cabal Coffers. You’ll certainly be happy opening any one of this. But the borderless version (on the right) really looks stunning.
There’s a prediction that we’ll get something similar to the Ikoria monsters, as the artwork on the packing looks pretty similar to that style. Maybe we’re getting brand new Mutate creatures for Modern?
Old Frame Cards
Old frame cards were quite popular with Time Spiral Remastered. They are returning with MH2 – in the Collector Boosters at least. While we don’t know all old frame cards yet, we know that we’re getting all enemy fetch lands. Now that’s pretty neat, right?
You can find all Modern Horizons 2 old border cards here.
Modern Horizons 1 Reprints
But wait, that’s not all – there’s a special selection of reprints from the first version of Modern Horizons. Some cards (40 to be exact) will get the old border treatment and will only be available in the Collector Boosters.
Which cards could you expect? Well, something like this:
Extended Art Cards
You can also get fetch lands in the extended art version.
Extended art is somewhat similar to the borderless versions. However, the artwork extends just to the left and right border, and not from the top to bottom. It’s also the regular version of the card art, and not an alternate one.
The card also loses reminder text, which makes it more clear to read. Usually each rare and mythic rare that didn’t get the borderless version, gets the extended art treatment.
Is Modern Horizons 2 Collector Booster Worth It?
So let’s discuss if MH2 Collector Boosters are worth buying or not. Well, a straightforward answer doesn’t really exist. At least not one that’d be correct for everyone. Modern Horizons 2 Collector Booster is worth it for some players, but maybe not for others. Let’s see on which factors this depends.
You shouldn’t buy MH2 Collector Booster, if you:
- Don’t care about alternate art cards and foils.
- Would rather draft, than just open packs.
- Can’t afford it right now.
On the other hand you should buy MH2 Collector Booster, if you:
- Like to collect alternate art card.
- Enjoy the old frame cards.
- Want to get Modern or Commander staples like fetch lands.
- Really want to open as many exciting cards as you can.
- Don’t mind spending a bit extra.
Are you planning to purchase multiple MH2 Collector Boosters? In that case, keep in mind that it’s usually better value to get a whole booster box instead of twelve separate boosters. On average, you’ll get 1-2 boosters more for the same price.
