Can you get to the point when chase cards (cards beyond R) replace an uncommon?

I know when Magic started having chase cards outside of the C, U, R, they. Did it that way

Maybe. Something to keep in mind that we're working six months out; the August release heads to print very soon. The lead time on projects is greater than many realize; anything we decide today won't be reflected in sets for several months.

At the moment, we guarantee one rare or higher rarity card per pack. Some packs, as many have found, include more than one.

I have to say after opening two boxes, you get a lot more rates than any other ccg I have played. I was amazed to see you almost average two per pack. It isnít quite every pack but I think my second box it was all but three. Personally, knowing the distribution for this isnít as important to me since you get so many more

No they didn't. Mythic Rares (the only rarity above rare) replace the rare slot in a pack. Foil cards (which are basically the magic version of alt art) replace the land slot in a pack.

Foils in mtg replace a common. Which is actually super annoying in draft since most stores tell players to take the lands out but then have to remind players to leave in foil lands so pack distribution ends up the same.

Good luck with your pulls! If you find an Ace of Spades, please make sure to rip it to bits and share pics with the world. Or, I guess, keep it for your collection. (Though my way is more entertaining.)

Hmm, I could have sworn they replaced the land slot. Oh well, my bad :). But, I *do* know that the stores are bringing that on themselves since the lands aren't supposed to be removed before drafting.

Actually at a MTG Draft, basic lands are supposed to be removed along with tokens. (7.7 Booster Draft Procedures
All players must open and draft the same type of booster at the same time. Players open their first booster pack and count the cards face down, removing token cards, rules cards, and any other non- game cards. Players who receive an erroneous number of card s at any time must immediately notify a judge. After picking up the booster, players should remove and keep any non- foil Plains, Island , Swamp, Mountain, or Forest basic land cards and/or any other cards that are not legal to use in the draft . Foil basic land cards should be left in the booster and drafted with the other cards. Players choose one card from their current booster pack and then pass the remaining cards face down to the player on their left until all cards are drafted. Once a player has removed a card from the pack and put it on top of his or her single, front face -down drafted pile, it is considered selected and may not be returned to the pack.)

I was hoping/expecting to find distribution rates as well, similar to the common knowledge that in MTG a Mythic replaces the rare at a rate of about 1 in 8.
