3 New Magic Products Explained

Get all the info you need on Theme Boosters, Guild Kits, and the Spellslinger Starter Kit.

Guilds of Ravnica brings new ways to experience one of Magic’s most iconic planes. We have a host of new products lined up for players of all skill levels.

Take a look:


Guilds of Ravnica Theme Boosters


We tested this product in select stores with Dominaria35-card booster packs in which all cards share a color (or are colorless), including one rare or mythic. Results were good, so we’re widening their availability. But they’re a little different this time.

For Guilds of Ravnica, each booster is based on a two-color guild: Boros, Selesnya, Izzet, Dimir and Golgari. Packs still come with 35 cards, including one rare or mythic.

They’re mostly for beginners—an early purchase after they’ve started with a Welcome Deck or Planeswalker Deck. The idea is to let them expand their collection with colors that they’re already invested in.

Guilds of Ravnica Theme Boosters: The Short Version
  • 35 randomized cards based on a two-color guild
  • 1 rare or mythic
  • Guilds featured: Boros (white/red); Selesnya (white/green); Izzet (blue/red); Dimir (blue/black); Golgari (black/green).


Guilds of Ravnica Guild Kits


Guild Kits have everything a player needs to represent their guild, from defending nature with the Selesnya Conclave to spreading the vengeance of the underworld with the Golgari Swarm.

They're ready-to-play 60-card decks. Like Theme Boosters, they're based on the five guilds in Guilds of Ravnica. But Guild Kits feature cards from all Ravnica blocks, plus guild swag like pins, stickers, and a spindown life counter.

They’re also designed to play well against each other. We’ll have more details on the actual cards inside once we get closer to release. (Look for this in the last week of September.)

In the meantime, these hit shelves on November 2 to coincide with Ravnica Weekend. Make sure you’re stocked up!

Guilds of Ravnica Guild Kits: The Short Version
  • 1 ready-to-play 60-card deck, based on one of Guilds of Ravnica's 5 guilds
  • Includes cards from all Ravnica sets
  • Guild swag: official guild pin, life counter, stickers, and more


Spellslinger Starter Kit


The Spellslinger Starter Kit is a new option for beginners to get a smooth introduction into Magic. It comes with two Standard-legal 60-card decks—designed to create an interactive learning experience for two.

Each deck features two colors: a white/red deck to take on black/green. Players can pick one and instantly challenge another friend to learn together.

It also has accessories. You’ll find spindown life counters, turn order cards, and a rules reference booklet to equip new players with everything they need to learn.

You can see the Spellslinger Starter Kit fully unboxed in this video.

Spellslinger Starter Kit: The Short Version
  • 2 ready-to-play 60-card decks
  • A learn-to-play experience for two
  • Cards are ordered specifically for a tutorial
