Iconic Masters Comes to Magic Online on November 17!

Posted in Magic Online on November 9, 2017

By Lee Sharpe

Iconic Masters is almost here, bringing some of the most famous Magic cards of all time back to draft in an all-new format! Available in the Magic Online store for $6.99 per booster pack, Iconic Masters releases simultaneously with tabletop Magic on Friday, November 17, and will be available until December 6. Magic Online will feature two Draft leagues for this release, regular and phantom. In case that isn't enough, we’ve also added two open Iconic Masters Sealed Deck PTQs to our PTQ schedule.

This release also features three new limited-release Play Point Bundles and a Treasure Chest update that includes cards from Commander (2017 Edition). Check out all the details below!

Introducing Play Point Bundles (for a limited time)

Starting November 15, Magic Online will offer three new Play Point Bundles in the Magic Online store:

Store Item Price

$24

$45

$100

You can use the Bundles either to round out your Play Point collection or to buy in bulk and save some money. Just purchase, open, and play. And speaking of saving money, if you don’t open the Silver (240) Play Point Bundle, you can use it to join an Iconic Masters draft between November 17 and December 6 to save 10 Play Points. See below for more on that.

These Bundles are only available through the holidays, and will disappear from the store when Rivals of Ixalan releases on January 19, 2018.

Magic Online Treasure Chest Update

Two big changes to Treasure Chests arrive with the November 15 maintenance. First, select cards from Commander (2017 Edition) and other sets are making their Magic Online debut! Second, we’re adding complete Standard-legal sets to Treasure Chests. If you get one of these sets, you’ll need to open it before you can use the cards for your Magic Online Constructed decks, redeem them (if the awarded set is still eligible for redemption), or trade them!

We are adding a new sheet to Treasure Chests, the Exclusive sheet. These are for cards that Magic Online Treasure Chests are the only way to get these cards. This includes cards from Commander 2017, as well as promo cards with new art! Here is how likely each of the 3 Treasure Chest slots is to pull from each sheet:

Slot Curated Modern R/M Exclusive Play Points Standard C/U
1 22% 43% 5% 30% 0%
2 6.50% 10% 5% 0% 78.50%
3 1% 8% 5% 0% 86%
