New MTG Boosters
- Draft Booster
- Theme Booster
- Collector Booster
Draft boosters are regular old boosters, that we’ve known for the past 25 years. The only thing changing is just the name, so that we can distinguish between other types of boosters.
Each Draft booster contains 15 cards:
- 10 commons
- 3 uncommons
- 1 rare or mythic rare
- 1 basic land
- 1 token card
Theme boosters have been around for a short while. Now you have a chance of getting an extra rare or mythic rare card.
Theme boosters are aimed at newer players, or players who only want cards from a certain color. There are five different boosters – one for each color of Magic. All cards in the booster are from the respective color. For example in the booster pictured bellow you’d only get black cards.
Each Theme Booster contains:
- 34 commons and uncommons (mix)
- 1 rare or mythic rare
- 1 card with tips for new players
You also have a 10% chance that you get one more rare or mythic rare card. The card will probably replace one of the common cards.
The biggest change to the MTG boosters comes with this special pack. It will fetch a premium price, but it looks like it will be worth it. It includes bunch of foils, alternate art cards and border-less versions of certain cards. Furthermore some of those arts will be only obtainable through a Collector Booster.
For anyone who likes pimped cards, there’s finally a booster pack made just for you.
- 9 foil commons and uncommons (mix)
- 3 special-frame cards (showcase or borderless planeswalkers)
- 1 rare or mythic rare with extended art
- 1 foil rare or mythic rare
- 1 ancillary card*
- 1 foil token
*Anicilliary cards are related to the set but don’t appear in Booster Packs. For example – Buy a Box promo, cards from Planeswalker Decks etc.
