MTG Jurassic Park Cards: Full List & Guide

Magic the Gathering has recently been doing various collaborations with popular franchises. The latest partnership will surely bring joy to fans of dinosaurs. A bit later in this November, we’re getting MTG Jurassic Park cards!

In this article, you’ll learn everything there’s to know about them. You’ll find the full list of all Jurassic World cards, discover where to get them, as well as some additional information. Let’s not waste any more time, and jump right to it!

What are MTG Jurassic Park Cards?

MTG Jurassic Park cards are a part of Universes Beyond. That’s a term for all Magic the Gathering cards set in other franchises. Thus, these cards will depict iconic dinosaurs, characters and/or moments from 30 years of Jurassic World movies. Yes, 2023 marks the 30th anniversary of the first movie. Time does indeed fly.

There are 26 Jurassic Park cards total. Among them, 20 are mechanical unique. These might even introduce brand new mechanics to MTG. What are the 6 reprinted cards? Well, there are five basic lands, one for each type, and a Command Tower.

Jurassic Park cards will be available in The Lost Caverns of Ixalan set. This is a return to a popular plane which focused on four tribes: Merfolk, Vampires, Pirates, and… You guessed it, Dinosaurs! Thus, it makes a lot of sense to print these cards in this specific set.

All of these cards have a special set symbol:

How to Get MTG Jurassic Park Cards?

These will work similar to MTG Transformer cards. Therefore, you can expect to get them in two types of The Lost Caverns of Ixalan boosters:

As you can see, Set boosters don’t give you amazing odds, with only 8.33%. From a whole booster box, you could expect to get 2-3 Jurassic Park cards on average. Collector boosters always contain a Jurassic Park card, but are pricier.

Just keep in mind that you won’t get these cards in Draft boosters. Thus, if you’re interested in opening a card from the popular Dinosaur movies, avoid Draft boosters.

MTG Jurassic Park: Full Card List

All Jurassic Park cards have been previewed. As mentioned before, the cards can be divided into two groups. In the first one, you’ll find 20 mechanically unique cards, such as a saga that flips into a land, T-Rex, Jeff Goldblum, and more. Let’s take a look:

The second group of cards are the six reprints. However, these come with a twist. Each card is double-sided, even though it’s the same card on both sides. The difference comes from the artwork. The front side (left column) depicts dinosaurs before they break free, while on the backside (right column), you’ll find free-roaming dinos.

Additional Ways to Acquire Jurassic Park Cards

While the most common way to open these card is going to be with Set and Collector boosters, there’s one additional option. We’re talking about the two Bundles, released with The Lost Caverns of Ixalan set.

First, there’s the regular Bundle, which contains 8 Set boosters, plus a whole lot of additional bonus content. That includes foil basic lands, promo card, and most importantly a guaranteed Jurassic Park card. This is great news, as it’s the most moderately priced product, in which you know you’re going to open one.

Second option is the Gift Edition Bundle. It comes with similar stuff, but there’s also a Collector booster included. On top of that, the guaranteed Jurassic Park card is in foil, which is a great bonus. So, in this product you will get at least two of these cards, plus maybe an additional one in Set boosters.

In the following table, you’ll find a short summary of how many Jurassic Parks cards can you expect in different products:

  • Lost Caverns of Ixalan Gift Edition Bundle IconGift Edition Bundle8 Set

  • 2 guaranteed (1 foil)
  • 0.67 on average (in Set)
  • As you see, you’re best option are the Collector boosters, but if you’re looking for something less pricey, getting a Gift Edition Bundle is a good idea too.

    Another thing to keep in mind is that the guaranteed card that comes with any of the two bundles, will always be one of the 20 mechanically unique cards. So, there’s no basic lands and Command Tower in that slot.

    Of course, if you’re looking for a specific card, it’s probably best to simply buy it on the secondary market.

    Emblem Versions

    There’s also a special foil variant, called the Emblem version. You can recognized them by the Jurassic Park logo (emblem) that appears on the card. Here’s one example, although it may seem a bit weird. The effect looks better in person.

    This emblem can appear on most of the mechanically unique cards. (That’s the first group in the gallery above.) The only exception is the flip card, Welcome to / Jurassic Park, which doesn’t have an emblem variant.

    These card will be incredibly rare, as you can only open them in Collector boosters. Even then, they only appear in less that 1% of Collector boosters. Thus, if you open one of this, you probably got quite a valuable card, and an amazing collector’s item. Don’t sell it, before you check its price online, so the other party can’t take advantage of you.

      • As far as we know, there are no Jurassic Park cards that you’d only get by preordering. Perhaps you meant the guaranteed cards that come in the bundles? If not, you can provide a link to the source with this information and we’ll double check.

    1. Wouldn’t the jurassic park basic lands be considered a marked card due to not having the basic magic back? I doubt people will use the substitute card for thier basic lands

      Reply
      • No, they wouldn’t. There are already plenty of double-faced cards in Magic. What you do need to do is to use them with non-transparent sleeves, so you can’t tell by the card’s back that you’re drawing a basic land.
