Welcome Deck 2017 is a 30-card reprint set which accompanies the release of the Amonkhet block as well as the succeeding block.

These cards, numbered 001 to 030, do not appear in booster packs, but are Standard-legal as long as Amonkhet is Standard-legal. [2]

All cards are mono-colored. There are five uncommons, five rares and the rest is common. Each color features one rare. However there is a color imbalance in the uncommons: White has two, red none and the rest one.
