Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Sample Collector Booster Packs?

Many players may not be familiar with the concept of sample collector packs coming in precons, as they are quite new. So, what are they and what might they contain?

As the name implies, these are small sample versions of regular collector booster packs. It’s a “sample” because you only get two cards in it.

Related: Set Boosters vs Draft Boosters FAQ

However, if you’re at all familiar with collector boosters, you know that they contain all the rarest, most collectible versions of cards from a given set. So, even with only two cards, you stand to get some awesome pulls.

Each sample booster contains the following:

  • 1 rare or mythic with special treatment (foil or non-foil)
  • 1 common or uncommon (foil)

What Are Display Commanders?

In addition to the regular foil version of your primary commander you also get a foil-etched “display version”. These display versions are slightly thicker than a regular card and are to use in your command zone. What’s cool about the difference in thickness is that it means your commander won’t get shuffled away into your deck.

You’d have to play the regular version of the card if you wanted to put it in the 99 and use a secondary commander. Also, be sure not to play both versions of the card at the same time.

How Many New Cards Are Printed In Each Deck??

Each deck will contain 10 brand new cards, exclusive to that precon. This gives us a grand total of 20 new commander cards between the two decks.

End Step

The plane of Dominaria is one of infamy. It’s also a plane that historically produces very power cards, legendary spells, ad lots of historic spell support. All of which is very good news for commander players. Thanks for stopping by for a look at the Precons for Dominaria United with me. Now get out there and play some MTG.

I started playing Magic in 2015. I love all formats but I particularly love to play and build decks in modern. Pretty much every part of my life has been influenced by Magic in some way or another. It is something I am very passionate about. RIP Simian Spirit Guide.
