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 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
  4. Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker
  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.

Reception[edit | edit source]

Wizards of the Coast received negative feedback from some of the player base about the price range, the functioning of the Hasbro site on sale date, and the lack of international shipping. Before the controversy began, their response was that it was an experiment to see if it was a style of product that collectors would be interested in.[6][7] They supplied a limited amount of this product to ChannelFireball Events for sale at Grand Prix,[8] which also sold out very quickly.

A month after the release, Wizards of the Coast sent out an apology letter due to the technical issues with completing transactions on the website.
