Dominaria's Buy-a-Box Isn't In Booster Packs

Dominaria's Buy-a-Box Isn't In Booster Packs

March 26, 2018 | 2 min to read

Dominaria preorders are open with distributors everywhere, and WPN members are eligible to sell advance booster boxes at Prerelease—a week before street date—in quantities equal to the number of Buy-a-Box promos they receive.

This means a lot of you might be making preorder decisions earlier than you usually would. Here's something you should know when you do:

For the first time ever, the set includes a foil, Standard-and-Commander-legal rare that is only available through the Buy-a-Box promotion.

It's not in booster packs. It's not in Bundles. It's not in any store outside of the Wizards Play Network.

Take a look:

R&D designed this card specifically to be Dominaria's Buy-a-Box promo.

The target was casual and Commander players—to motivate them to pick up a box early, rather than wait and update their decks piece by piece. Plus, being exclusive, it's got appeal for collectors. And while it's not a likely powerhouse in Standard, it could easily find a home in decks outside of tier one.

But we're especially excited about its implications for Brawl, a new Commander variant using only Standard-legal cards. Read more about the format from designer Gavin Verhey here.

The promos are on their way now and will be landing in your store soon. Players can preorder a full display to earn one and pick it up at Prerelease (while supplies last), starting on April 21.
