"We will also be replacing one common card in each booster pack with a basic land card. The expected composition of a booster pack will now be 1 rare, 3 uncommons, 10 commons, 1 basic land, and 1 tip card or token (with the mythic rare replacing the rare in approximately 1 out of every 8 packs)."

That is the level of detail I was hoping for. It's even more important* the more rarities you add.

*to me obviously. I can't speak for everyone :).
It's important to me, too.

I know it's important to help build a thriving singles after market which helps drive the collectability aspect of the game.

Yea, for any store that wants to sell singles it seems like it would be essential information. "how many boxes do I need to open, and what does my average R, X, V, etc. need to cost to cover that with a profit."

I just opened a box and the three packs that came in my starter. There were a lot of V,W,X cards in total. I was more than pleasantly surprised

I will have to look later on quantity... I know there was just 1 w. I forget how many v's. It was mostly x's.

If it helps at all I have only opened one box so far. And here is my brake down of what I obtained.

24 R - There was one in every pack, even ones that contained an X, V, or W.
3 V
1 W - School of Badassery in case you were wondering
15 X - One was Ace of Spades thankfully!
245 C and U

So My guess is every booster gets 7C, 3U, 1R, and 1Random (C,U,R,V,X,W). Again, I only have my single box to go off of, but it seems that the Random slot is geared more towards X, V, and W. But hopefully someone will start a spreadsheet and the numbers can be crunched soon!!

Thanks! This is the type of breakdown I would love to see from the official source. In an ideal world, we'd see something like the following:

Every booster has 7C, 3U and 1R/V/X/W, and a flex slot. The flex slot is randomly filled with all rarities, meaning packs can include 8 commons, 4 uncommon or 2 Rare or betters. The V rarity occurs in approximately 1 out of every __ rare slots, the W rarity occurs in approximately 1 out of every __ rare slots, and the X rarity occurs a variable amount, with non-alt art X rares occurring approximately 1 out of every __ rare slots.


Can fans put together spreadshets to try and figure this information out? Sure, I guess. But it is literally information that SJG has, and could *easily* give out. I don't see any benefit to them in hiding it, but apparently they think there's some benefit to obscuring rarities and pinky promising that its not a bad thing.

Not exactly. We would need to provide odds for each card in the set.

At the *very least* the expected composition of a pack is information that you have. I understand* that you don't want to give out specific rarities, but there's no way you don't know what the card slots in a pack are. Even as much as "you should expect to see X commons, Y uncommons, and Z rare or betters, with some chance of a higher rarity replacing one of the commons" or something like that.

*I don't understand why you don't, but I do understand that you don't. But, either way you aren't providing it and I'm not asking for it since you've made it clear it aint gonna happen.

We donít guarantee a specific mix because itís not a consistent mix across all boosters. Thereís at least one rare or higher rarity card per pack. After that, common and uncommon card slots _may_ be replaced with a different rarity.
