Sale issues[edit | edit source]
On May 1, 2019, Wizards of the Coast launched the sale of this set on their eBay Hasbro Store. All 12,000 units sold out within five minutes, causing various problems with customers who couldn't pay and others who did pay but had their order cancelled. In response, eBay gave a gift card to customers whose War of the Spark Mythic Edition orders were cancelled and Wizards promised to send "something special" to those customers as well.
This was a repeat of the events when the sales of the Guilds of Ravnica Mythic Edition broke down the Hasbro site, and disappointed customers received a free Ultimate Box Topper. This time around, disappointed customers received an uncut foil print sheet of Mythic and Rare cards from War of the Spark.
