Guilds of Ravnica Mythic Edition is a special Guilds of Ravnica draft-sized booster box, exclusively sold in the U.S and Canada.[2] This experimental product was sporadiacally available on the Hasbro webshop only, on October 3 for $249.99.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Mythic Edition includes 24 Guilds of Ravnica boosters. Eight of these booster are clearly marked as "Masterpiece Boosters" and contain one of eight foil Masterpieces in addition to their normal rare/mythic rare card.[3][4]

Each unit contains all 8 Masterpiece cards:

  1. Elspeth, Knight-Errant
  2. Liliana, the Last Hope
  3. Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast

  5. Ral, Izzet Viceroy
  6. Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas
  7. Teferi, Hero of Dominaria
  8. Vraska, Golgari Queen

The Masterpieces have their own own expansion code (MED), which is identical to the code for Masters Edition. They also have their own expansion symbol, featuring the planeswalker symbol on a mythic-colored background.

Tokens and emblems[edit | edit source]

  8. Emblem for Vraska, Golgari Queen.

Reception[edit | edit source]

Wizards of the Coast received overwhelmingly negative feedback from the player base about the price, the near-total breakdown of the Hasbro site on sale date, the late launch of the product, a message on the Hasbro site saying that the sale had been pushed back to October 4th, being charged multiple times, receiving order confirmations which were then cancelled/rescinded and lack of international shipping. Before the controversy began, their response was that it was an experiment and that they would let the sales speak for themselves.[6][7] They supplied a limited amount of this product to ChannelFireball Events for sale at Grand Prix.[8] but as soon as the issues with the Hasbro site were apparent, all available product for US GP events sold out immediately.

A month after the release, Wizards of the Coast sent out an apology letter.
