Zendikar Rising Set Booster is packed with exciting stuff! But what do you get exactly when you open one of these new glorious boosters? Well, the short version is that there are tons of cool cards inside the booster! But we here at Poromagia aren't just about quick and short answers. We really like to dig in and show you what do you're getting when you buy Zendikar Rising Set Boosters or Displays.
In total there are 14 cards inside the booster of which 12 are playable Magic the gathering cards. The two MtG themed cards are the Art Card and a token. The whole idea of the Zendikar Rising Set Booster is to make opening boosters fun and exciting so the whole experience is in four different chapters: Welcome, Fireworks, Big Finish, and Epilogue. Let's go through each chapter and see what they have in store for us!
Welcome - three different cards
Slot 1: Art Card - This can be any of the 80 different Zendikar Rising Art Cards. There is a 5% chance that you'll open an art card featuring a golden signature from the artist. How neat :) You see all the different Art Cards here: https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/card-image-gallery/zendikar-rising-art-cards-2020-09-18
Slot 2: Land - One Zendikar Rising Full Art Basic Land. There is a 15% chance of a foil version.
Slots 3-8: Different uncommons and commons which share a theme, color, synergy, etc. Total of 6 different cards with the following chances:
- Five commons, one uncommons will happen 35% of the time.
- Four commons, two uncommons will happen 40% of the time.
- Three commons, three uncommons will happen 12.5% of the time.
- Two commons, four uncommons will happen 7% of the time.
- One common, five uncommons will happen 3.5% of the time.
- Zero commons, six uncommons will happen 2% of the time.
Opening a Zendikar Rising Set Booster begins with a beautiful Art Card. You have a chance to get a card with a gold stamped signature.
Fireworks - three different cards
Slot 9: Showcase card or "a cool element of the set" (to be honest we tried to dig around the internet what that cool card could be but found nothing. But our guess is that it might be those Modal Double-Faced Cards!)
Slot 10 & 11: Wildcard Rarity Slots. These two slots can be anything from common to mythic rare. It is possible to open a showcase rare or mythic rare in this slot.
- Common, common will happen 49% of the time.
- Common, uncommon will happen 24.5% of the time.
- Common, rare (or mythic) will happen 17.5% of the time.
- Uncommon, uncommon will happen 3.1% of the time.
- Uncommon, rare (or mythic) will happen 4.3% of the time.
- Rare (or mythic), rare (or mythic) will happen 1.6% of the time.
Roughly 24% of the time you will open at least one extra rare or mythic and this is only the first extra chance. Keep reading and you find out more ways of opening extra rares!
The 9th card of the Zendikar Rising Set Booster is always either an uncommon or a common showcase card.
Big Finish - two different cards
Slot 12: Rare/Mythic Rare - This slot is just like the good old rare/mythic rare slot in Draft Boosters. Except Wizards of the coast increased the chances of getting mythic rares in Zendikar rising from 1 in every 8 to 1 in every 7.4 (this change is also for Draft Boosters)
Slot 13: Foil - There is a foil in every pack. How cool is that? And this foil can be anything from a common to a mythic rare so here is one more chance of getting those sweet mythics.
Epilogue - one card
Slot 14: Token / Ad card. Most of the time. But in 25% of the Set Boosters, you get a card from The List (check our Facebook for the full list of cards: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?vanity=Poromagia&set=a.3430089750390535). There are 300 different cards on The List and they're commons, uncommons, rares and mythic rares all over from Magic's 27-year history.
