Masters sets are back, and they’re double the fun!
Wizards recently announced Double Masters: a new Magic set coming August 7, 2020. Like previous Masters sets, Double Masters‘ card pool consists entirely of reprints from throughout Magic‘s history, compiled to provide a Cube-like draft experience.
Here’s what we know so far about this exciting new set.
What’s In a Pack?
As the name suggests, Double Masters doubles the quantities of the most sought-after cards in booster packs. Each pack contains two cards in the rare/mythic slot AND two foils. Those foils can be of any rarity, so it’s possible to get three or even FOUR rare or mythic rare cards in a single pack!
Now, let’s say you’re drafting Double Masters. How will you decide which rare to take? Fortunately, you don’t have to: when you open a pack in Double Masters draft, you can take TWO cards from it. (No Cogwork Librarian required!) Then, you draft the rest of the cards in that draft round as normal.
Like Ultimate Masters, Double Masters will include Box Toppers: alternate-art, collectible cards in special packaging.
So far, we’ve seen five box toppers that will be available in Double Masters:
Atraxa, Praetor’s Voice
Kaalia of the Vast
In their recent announcement, Wizards stated that Double Masters‘ reprints were chosen to suit a wide variety of players, from Commander fans to Vintage veterans.
Previews for Double Masters are scheduled to begin in mid-July, and you can preorder booster boxes from CardKingdom.com starting July 8th. Stay tuned for more info!
