|Magic: The Gathering Chronology|
In this set, Wizards of the Coasts has reprinted 63 of the most famous instants and sorceries of all time in specially designed showcase frames. Strixhaven Draft and Set Boosters contain one Mystical Archive card, and Collector Boosters have at least three. These will only be legal in formats that they are already legal in. They are not part of the Standard environment. However, the cards may be used in Limited events.
While some of the Mystical Archive cards are reprints of things previously at common (like Opt), the Archive only has uncommon, rare, and mythic rarities. Mystical Archive cards feature special art and frames with flavor text ripped straight from the scholarly library within Strixhaven.
The global Mystical Archive cards are available in various languages, but there will also be Japanese alternate art versions of the Mystical Archive cards with art inspired by traditional Japanese paintings.
You'll receive one copy — from its own dedicated slot — in each Draft Booster and each Set Booster, and at least three in each Collector Booster. As Mystical Archive cards are a bonus card in each Draft Booster and set booster, they don't replace another card of the same rarity in a pack. So you can get multiple rare cards in a Draft Booster.
The Japanese variants for Mystical Archive will be found in Japanese Draft, Set, and Collector Boosters, and at least one will come in Collector Boosters in all languages. In Japanese Draft and Set Boosters, Mystical Archive cards and Japanese alternate-art versions will appear at equal rates.
