Treasure Chest Contents
The following is a breakdown of what you can expect to find in each slot of a Magic Online Treasure Chest.
Modern-Era Rare/Mythic Rare
Treasure Chest Avatars
Variable Play Point
Five Play Points
Each Treasure Chest contains one random selection for Slot 1, one for Slot 2, etc. Read the table across to identify the rate of each selection.
For each of these categories except "Five Play Points," the selection is made from the table of the same name below. Each table has listed a card (or other digital object) with a Relative Drop Rate. To identify the absolute drop rate of a given item, divide that item's Relative Drop Rate by the sum of the Relative Drop Rate column. For example, the chance that a Variable Play Point drop will provide 20 Play Points is 500 (the Relative Drop Rate of 20 Play Points) divided by 2,201 (the sum of the Relative Drop Rates for the Variable Play Point table), or approximately 22.7%.
The rarity on the card shown reflects only the original printing of the card and is not indicative of its frequency of appearance in Treasure Chests. All curated cards are non-premium, including Masterpiece sets like Zendikar Expeditions and Ravnica Mythic Edition planeswalkers.
When a Modern-Era Rare or Mythic Rare drop is indicated, the specific card that appears could be from any Modern-era set. This doesn't include sets that were never Standard-legal, such as Masters sets. Rares and mythic rares in these sets that are banned in Modern are still included. Each rare will appear twice as often as any given mythic rare, meaning that any rare has a Relative Drop Rate of 2 and each mythic rare has a Relative Drop Rate of 1. Rares from sets that did not contain mythic rares, as well as Time Spiral's "Timeshifted" bonus sheet still have a Relative Drop Rate of 2. All cards that appear in this category are non-premium, with the exception of rares from Eighth Edition and Ninth Edition, which are premium.
The first slot in a Treasure Chest has a 30% chance of containing a number of Play Points. If this happens, the table below is consulted to identify the number of Play Points appearing. See above for a description of Relative Drop Rates. If a Variable Play Point drop occurs, it will be combined with the guaranteed Five Play Points in Slot 3, rather than appearing separately.
Some cards have multiple versions in the Magic Online Treasure Chest. These are listed separately with the set code for that version listed. Note that a card on the Curated sheet appearing in a specific Treasure Chest doesn't necessarily mean it was a Curated sheet pull; many cards are on both this sheet and the Modern-Era Rare/Mythic Rare sheet.
See above for a description of Relative Drop Rates.
A note on set symbols:
PRM indicates a promo that uses the Magic Online promo set symbol.
PZ1 cards appeared in the Legendary Cube Prize Packs and use that set symbol.

MS4 cards are the full-art Ravnica Mythic Edition planeswalkers.
The following Treasure Chest avatars can currently be found in Slot 4. Each has a Relative Drop Rate of 1, with a 2% chance for either to appear, meaning that each has an absolute 1% chance to appear and they will never appear together in the same Treasure Chest.
