Default Rarity

Could someone, preferably Mr. Hackard, explain x w and v rarities and which is more rare and how that whole thing works.

Not an expert, but commons & uncommon are pretty normal, there is at least 1 Rare (or even rarer) in each booster pack, but you still could get multiple rares. Very rare cards (V) do not necessarily come in every pack. They are (obviously) rarer than Rare Cards. Special (X) cards are, well, special. They are even rarer than super rare. These are usually large art cards or the munchkin throwback cards that are brown and white-ish. We destroyed most of these (W) are very rare, and are desired after.

i do think it can be confusing but many of those X cards you have are just alt art cards of commons. theres only (i think) 7 actual x rarity cards that aren't some form of alternate art. and those are rarer than V.

Rarity goes like this:

C: Common
U: Uncommon
R: Rare
X: X Rarity
V: Very Rare
W: We Destroyed Most Of These

The only real exception is the Ace of Spades which is an X rare, but rarer than the other cards in the set. V's are rarer than R's and X's, and W's are rarer than everything except the Ace.

Almost. V rares are rarer than most X's (aside from the Ace of Spades), and W is the rarest of the rarities.

So, wait, are the X rares and the X alt arts appearing at the same frequency?

Just about, the only X that is actively weirder was the Ace of Spades. Of course collation of a box and whatnot may mean more or less X's in a particular box.

I've never asked for a specific count/guarantee of any given rarity per box, and it bothers me that people STILL think that's what I want.

I'm just trying to figure out relative frequencies of rarities. I understand statistics, and that it is possible to get 0 X in a box even when the frequency of X's is (hypothetically) 1 out of 10 packs.

Also: It's worth noting that, since X rares and Alt art X's are the same frequency, X rares are substantially more difficult to obtain than they appear. This is because while your odds of getting an X rarity card in general may not be high, only a fraction of those are the unique cards.
