The following is an excerpt from the Wizard's article UNRAVELING THE MYSTERY BOOSTER
So, that's a lot of backstory. If you're just interested in the raw details of how this whole thing works, here's the section for you!
Each version of the product contains 1,815 unique cards. In the Convention Edition, 121 of those are playtest cards which aren't legal for Constructed play. In the in-store version, 121 of them are foils that don't appear in the set otherwise.
Every slot in the pack has its own 121 card sheet that it pulls from. So, every pack will break down like this:
- 2 White commons or uncommons
- 2 Blue commons or uncommons
- 2 Black commons or uncommons
- 2 Red commons or uncommons
- 2 Green commons or uncommons
- 1 Multicolored common or uncommon
- 1 Artifact/land common or uncommon
- 1 Pre-M15 card
- 1 Post-M15 rare or mythic
- 1 Playtest card (if Convention Edition) or foil (if Store Edition)
Now, to explain a few of these slots.
Each of the dedicated color slots, multicolored, and artifact/land slots has a long list of possible common or uncommon options. (This includes, by the way, cards that may have been upgraded in the future—for example, Demonic Tutor is on a black common/uncommon sheet!) For example, there are 242 black commons/uncommons. Each appears once on its own sheet. In every pack, one card off each sheet is dropped into the pack. This is the most straightforward.
Next up is the pre-M15 slot. This is a card in a card frame before M15, printed exactly like you saw it back then. Yes: this includes cards in the original Magic card frame! Many of these are rares, and even some that aren't are exciting throwbacks like Lotus Petal.
Next is the post-M15 rare or mythic. These are security-stamped rares from M15 forward. But they can be from anywhere—so Commander decks, Battlebond, and so on, are all fair game.
And finally, we get to the last slot. Those past 14 cards are all identical between Convention and Store Editions. We talked about the differences above, but to reiterate—the Convention booster has playtest cards, while the Store Edition has a completely separate foil sheet of 121 cards.
All of these cards look exactly like they did when they were originally printed—frame and all. This is the big way we managed to get this many cards in the set! The one difference, of course, being the Planeswalker symbol in the bottom corner.
Now, what exactly do these sheets look like? Well, you can go look at the card list to see everything in the set. But I know what the big questions on your minds are: what are the rares, mythics, and pre-M15 frame cards I can open? Well, here's all of this in one place for you.
