*The booster pack rewards have been updated. Players will now receive War of the Spark booster packs (and not Ravnica Allegiance as was previously announced).

War of the Spark Season 1 Rewards

  • Bronze: 1 War of the Spark booster pack
  • Silver: 1 War of the Spark booster pack + 500 gold
  • Gold: 2 War of the Spark booster packs + 1000 gold + Pteramander Card Style

Card Styles

  • Vraska's Contempt (RNA Season 2), Incubation Druid (WAR Season 1): Reward for players who reach Platinum Rank or higher in either Constructed or Limited in the corresponding season.

As a general reminder, card styles are a cosmetic option only and does not add any cards to a player's collection. There is no benefit to acquiring a card style more than once; if you achieve Gold Rank or higher in both Limited and Constructed, you will only receive one copy of the card style.
