Core Set 2019 Booster Box
Preorder This Product
Core sets were discontinued after Magic Origins in 2015, but are reintroduced with Core 2019. The reintroduction makes it possible to move away from the Two-Block Paradigm, and create room to print three large standalone sets each year. Thus, the codename Salad was transferred from the small set in the proposed Dominaria block, to this core set.
Like Magic 2010 to Magic Origins before, new core sets will contain a mix of new and reprinted cards. However, they will be primarily geared toward incoming players. They also will have a stronger integration with the Welcome decks, Planeswalker decks and Deck Builder's Toolkit, allowing for an easier transition between the products. The expansion symbol of the set, picks up the design earlier used for Magic 2010 to Magic 2015.
Core Set 2019 contains 280 cards (presumably 20 basic land, 101 common, 80 uncommon, 53 rare, and 15 mythic rare) and includes randomly inserted premium versions of all cards. Additional cards are found in the set's planeswalker decks.
