The newest MTG set, Phyrexia: All Will be One, comes with a special Compleat Edition Bundle. It’s an unusual product, and it’s been selling like hot cakes. We’re going to take a look at the Compleat Edition Bundle contents, to see what’s the reason for its success. Of course, we’ll also discuss if this is a good product to buy – whether you’re buying it for yourself or as a gift for someone else.
Compleat Edition Bundle Contents
Each Phyrexia: All Will Be One Compleat Edition Bundle contains the following items:
- 1 Compleat Edition booster
- 12 Phyrexia: All Will Be One Set Boosters
- 40 foil land cards
- 1 foil promo card (rare)
- Compleat Bundle-exclusive foil card box
- 1 special foil-like cardboard storage box
Let’s take a look at each of these, in case you aren’t familiar with them.
There are 13 boosters in every Compleat Edition Bundle. Twelve of them are Set boosters, and one is a special Compleated booster.
So, the biggest portion of this product is represented by Set boosters, as there are 12 of them. That gives you 40% of a whole Set booster box.
If you’re unfamiliar with them, Set boosters are the best boosters to just open for fun. They contain more exciting cards, than the regular Draft boosters, while being less expensive than Collector boosters. If you want to know more about different boosters, check our MTG Booster Guide.
Anyway, there are 12 cards in each Set booster, and each one contains at least one rare, but has a chance to get even more. You’ll get 144 cards just from the Set boosters alone.
Compleat Edition Booster
Next up, there’s a very special booster, called the Compleat Edition booster. As far as we know, this is the only product that contains this booster. This is the biggest reason for the Compleat Bundle’s popularity.
In it, you’ll find 2 mythic rare cards, and 10 basic lands. Sure, that might not seem like much, but there is a twist. All of these cards will come in a special foiling called Oil Slick Raised foil. Wizards’ design team said that they tried to do this treatment in a way that Phyrexians would like.
First up, here’s how the basic lands will look like. Of course, they look even better in person. As a reference to Phyrexian oil, these cards will have a special oily look to them, and that’s on top of the very amazing art.
Furthermore, there are also the mythic “oil foil” cards, which are also one of the main reasons for buying the Compleat Bundle. They also have the same foiling process as the basic lands that you saw above. Anyway, here’s one example of what you might get:
There are 20 different mythics that can appear on these two slots, and most of them are quite exciting to get. You can find the full list of Oil Slick Raised foils here.
Besides the boosters, you’ll also receive some additional cards in the Compleat Edition Bundle.
Namely, there are 40 basic lands. All of them are in foil, and are Phyrexian themed. So far, we don’t know whether these are full-art or regular basics. It’s more likely that these are regular basics, as that was the case with previous bundles.
Furthermore, there’s one foil rare promo card. This time around, we’re getting a popular Black card, that many players might know from before. It’s foil Phyrexian Phyrexian Arena. No, that’s not a typo, the promo is actually in Phyrexian. Take a look:
Thankfully, it’s not a too complex card to understand. At the beginning of your upkeep, you draw a card and lose a life. The card is still popular with many play groups, and also depicts an amazing highlight from Magic’s lore: Vraska compleats her ex-boyfriend, Jace.
This is certainly a cool card to get as a promo, as cards in Phyrexian language always stand out when you slam them on the table.
Finally, there are the accessories. Usually, bundles come with a twenty sided dice. The listing on Amazon is currently missing it, so perhaps we won’t get one this time around.
The Box Itself
Nevertheless, you still get the box in which everything is packed in. This might seem like not much, but this is not just some random cardboard box. It’s quite sturdy, and has a special design in the Phyrexian style. It’s going to look great on a shelf, as a storage for your Magic cards. Take a look:
The picture doesn’t quite do it justice, as the box has a special foil-like shine, which looks awesome in the right light.
Compleat Edition Bundle VS Regular Bundle
Phyrexia: All is One actually comes with two different bundles. There’s the one that we’re talking about in this article, the Compleat Edition, and there’s a regular version of the bundle. So, if you’re going to buy one, you should know the main differences between them, so you’ll make a better decision.
You can find the big differences in the following table:
|Compleat Bundle||Regular Bundle|
|Compleat Booster||Yes (1 per bundle)||No|
|Storage Box||with foil effect||regular|
|Check Price||Find it on Amazon||Find it on Amazon|
Is the Compleat Bundle a Better Deal than the Regular Bundle?
Both bundles have similar accessories. So the biggest difference comes from the boosters. The Compleat Bundle has almost twice the price of a regular one. For that price, you get 12 Set Boosters instead of 8, and the Compleated booster.
You could break down the price of the Compleat Bundle in such a way:
- 50% of the price reflects the 8 Set boosters (this is the same as a regular bundle)
- 25% is for the additonal 4 Set boosters
- the last 25% is for the Compleat Edition booster
So, it all depends on if you want the Compleat booster or not. If you do, then you should go with Compleat Edition Bundle. On the other hand, if you don’t care much about the special booster, then the regular bundle is perfectly fine.
Of course, prices might change in the future, and if you get a good discount on one of the bundles, it would make sense to go for that one.
One thing to consider is the big popularity of the Compleat Bundle. It might be worth it to keep in sealed for a while, as some unique Magic products get even more sought-after in the future.
Phyrexia All Will Be One Compleat Bundle – FAQ
Here are some frequently asked questions about the Compleat Edition Bundle and its contents. If you don’t find what you’re looking for here, leave a comment below, and we’ll get back to you soon.
12 Set boosters, 1 Compleat Edition booster, 40 foil basic lands, and a promo card. Everything is packed in a nice-looking, sturdy storage box.
Compleat edition usually costs twice as much as its regular counterpart, it has four Set boosters more, and a special Compleat Edition booster as well.
It’s a better deal than buying a Set booster box, if you care about the extras. If you only want to get Set boosters, then the Set booster box is a better deal. However, keep in mind that the Set booster box doesn’t come with the Compleat booster.
It can be. If you don’t have a deck yet, then it isn’t great, as you won’t be able to build a coherent deck solely from this product. However, if you do have a deck and want to improve it, then it’s amazing. The 40 basic lands are great for a player who’s trying to build new decks, and the price of the product is reasonable. However, if you don’t already have a deck, this isn’t for you, as you won’t be able to play Magic right out of the box. For better products, see our MTG Beginner Buyer’s Guide.
The promo card is foil Phyrexian Arena in Phyrexian language.
