Portal Starter Set

The Portal 2-Player Starter Set was a Magic starter-level box set released in 1997, as part of the Portal product range.

Description[edit | edit source]

This 2-Player Starter Set was part of Wizards of the Coast's first major attempt at a set catering to prospective and newer players. It was designed to provide them a format with simpler rules than a core set or an expansion set. It was released in several languages. A Gift Box edition featured additional content.

Contents[edit | edit source]

  • Two 35 Card preconstructed decks
  • 2 Playmats (paper)
  • A Play Guide to walk you through the sample game using the decks
  • A Rule Book
  • 1 Portal booster pack

Gift Box[edit | edit source]

The Gift Box is actually a bigger box that packages the regular box product with additional content.

  • 1 extra Portal booster pack
  • 2 score-keeping beads
  • A checklist of all the cards in the Portal set

Decklists[edit | edit source]

Variant printings[edit | edit source]

Seven of the cards from these boxed sets were printed with either flavor or reminder text different than their booster pack counterparts. Those cards are: Anaconda, Blaze, Elite Cat Warrior, Hand of Death, Monstrous Growth, Raging Goblin, and Warrior's Charge.
