Release date Friday, April 23rd.
Ah, Draft Boosters. The booster from which all other boosters descended. The progenitor of packs. As always, these are the most straightforward offering—perfect for any draft or sealed entertainment you may desire. Here’s what you can expect to find:
1 Rare or mythic rare
1 Mystical Archive card (uncommon, rare, or mythic rare)
1 Lesson card (common, rare, or mythic rare)
1 Common card replaced by a foil card of any rarity* in 1 out of 3 boosters
(*This includes global Mystical Archive cards in all non-Japanese Set Boosters, and both global and Japanese alternate-art Mystical Archive cards in Japanese Set Boosters.)
In Japanese Draft Boosters, 50% of all Mystical Archive cards will have the aforementioned alternate art and frame. Draft Boosters are available on their own or in a display of 36 packs.
Mystical Archive cards are presented in two varieties:
The global versions (pictured on the left, above) are available in all Set Boosters in all languages. In Japanese-language Set and Draft Boosters, however, 50% contain a card with a unique frame and gorgeous art by a Japanese artist. If you are outside of Japan, fear not. Japanese-language boosters will be available worldwide, and you’re also guaranteed one or more of the variant Japanese Archive cards in Collector Boosters of any language.
“Due to unexpected production issues, two Strixhaven: School of Mages products will be less readily available for release in North America. Strixhaven Prerelease (April 16–22) will not be affected.
The two delayed products are:
Strixhaven Draft Boosters
Strixhaven Japanese-language Set Boosters
Both affected products are not limited releases. We are working toward making more product available after the launch of Strixhaven.”
