Zendikar Rising Products; Open An Adventure

With Prerelease Week starting on September 18th and the full launch on September 25th, now is a great time to review the many Zendikar Rising Products on offer. Strap your Adventuring Gear down tight we’re heading into Zendikar.

Prerelease Packs
Every main set release sees a prerelease event* and this pack contains the tools to build your deck; 6 Draft Boosters and a foil date-stamped card. They also provide a 20-sided die for tracking life and a divider to keep your current deck separate from your other cards. Prerelease Packs are only available from local game stores while supplies last.
*Where conditions do not permit a prerelease event, local stores will still have them for at home play.

Draft Boosters
Designed for Limited Play right out of the pack, Draft Boosters form the core of any Magic Release. Each pack contains 10 commons, 3 uncommons, 1 rare or mythic rare, 1 full-art basic land, and 1 token/ad card. Wizards tweaked the drop rate for mythic rares up to 1-in-7.4 packs. A third of the packs replace a common with a foil card. Also, exciting, alternate art versions of cards may be found in a booster ranging from showcase frames to borderless land cards.
