Magic Collector Boosters are booster packs targeted at collectors. Unlike Draft Boosters, which optimize the Draft experience with a lot of repetition and a huge number of commons, Collector Boosters are maximized for more diversity in content, with more rares, foils, extended art, borderless planeswalkers and showcase cards.[1]

History[ | ]

For Ravnica Allegiance, Wizards introduced the first Collector Boosters. They contain fifteen cards for $12.99:[2] These featured:

  • 2 foils of any rarity
  • 3 rares/mythic rares
  • 10 uncommons

This was a very limited experimental test run. Collector Boosters were only available in Japan and North America, and even there they were not widely available.

Collector Boosters became a regular feature with the release of Throne of Eldraine.[1] This version contained:

  • 1 rare/mythic rare with extended art
  • 1 foil rare/mythic rare
  • 9 foil commons/uncommons
  • 3 special-frame cards (showcase cards or borderless planeswalkers)
  • 1 ancillary card (a new card that is connected to the set but doesn't appear in Draft Boosters. E.g. cards from Planeswalker decks)
  • 1 foil token

Booster Fun[ | ]

R&D introduced "Booster Fun" as the collective name that R&D use for the types of card frames (called card treatments[3] ) that could appear in Collector Boosters: extended art, borderless planeswalkers and showcase cards.[1][4] Booster Fun cards evolved from Masterpieces. The difference is that the Booster Fun cards are versions of cards in the set, not from outside of the set.[5]

Foil and non-foil Booster Fun cards may also appear in regular Draft Boosters, but at a much lower rarity. Non-foils appear in the same rarity slot as the original card. Foil Booster Fun cards appear in a common slot like other foils.[6]

Booster Fun was later also extended to Set Boosters.
