Standard Showdown and Buy-A-Box Boosters

We have some new information regarding special prizes for Magic players via the Wizards Play Network. Coming this November and December is the Standard Showdown, a weekly event that local gaming stores can host on Saturdays from November 16 to December 17. These three or four round events will feature the Standard format and offer an exciting new prize from Wizards of the Coast: Standard Showdown Boosters.

Standard Showdown Booster

Standard Showdown Boosters each contain three cards:

  • two Standard-legal rares or mythics
  • one foil (any rarity) including the chance at at a Kaladesh Invention or Zendikar Expedition.

The foil slot is especially exciting because it will contain a Masterpiece series card at a rate of 1 in every 33 boosters! How the boosters will be distributed is up to each store, but apart from performance, Wizards suggests using them as prizes for new players to events, and attendance. Also of note, stores can also get 44 Standard Showdown Boosters to use as buy-a-box promos over the holiday season. Each purchase of a Kaladesh Booster Box will get you two three-card boosters!
