The Mythic Edition series was an attempt in 2018-2019 by Wizards of the Coast to sell a high-end product aimed a collectors. Each Mythic Edition was sold as a booster box for a MSRP of $249.99. The box included 24 boosters, with eight of them containing foil "Masterpieces" (all of them planeswalkers) that were not available elsewhere.
There are three sets with a Mythic Edition, all sharing the same expansion symbol ():
- Mythic Edition (Guilds of Ravnica)
- Mythic Edition (Ravnica Allegiance)
- Mythic Edition (War of the Spark)
Especially the first release met with criticism from the public, which was partially addressed in the second release. However, the the third edition had sales problems as well. In the end, Wizards of that Coast concluded that there was definitely a market for high-end products, but that the exact shape of Mythic Edition probably wasn't the right model. Instead, they developed the Secret Lair Drop Series.
