Ultimate Masters: Magic Online Edition

Posted in Magic Online on November 28, 2018

By Alli Medwin

So, you watched the previews. You saw the Card Image Gallery fill up. You've read the articles, and you're familiar with some of the buzz around the set. Now that you know what's in the set and what decks you want to draft, we're all excited to finally get to play the set.

There are so many ways to play: You could play at your local game store. You could play at home with your friends. But even before those, even before the set launches on December 7, you can play Ultimate Masters Draft events on Magic Online, starting December 6.

Or, if you're planning to go to Grand Prix Vancouver or Grand Prix Prague, you might want to run through the Phantom Sealed League a few times for practice.

Here's how that's going to work.

Ultimate Masters Treasure Chest Update

New set, new Treasure Chests. There are several new categories of cards coming with this Treasure Chest update. First up: the Battlebond sheet is being retired in favor of Commander (2018 Edition). In the past, not every card has made it. And there may be times in the future when some specific cards from ancillary sets don't make it to Magic Online. But this time, for Commander 2018, they're all in. Each and every new card from that set will be available on Magic Online.

Second: The planeswalkers from the Guilds of Ravnica: Mythic Edition will begin appearing. These are labeled as "MS4" in the table below.

Third: We're introducing the new cards from the Global Series: Jiang Yanggu & Mu Yanling decks into the Treasure Chest set, labeled PZ2.

Fourth: The sweet new art from Signature Spellbook: Jace is coming to Magic Online in new promos. (Sadly, the new frames didn't make it.)

Fifth: This is the release that brings Ultimate Masters to MTGO. So it's only fitting that this is the release that brings the Ultimate Box Toppers to MTGO as well. These are all on the Curated sheet with a Relative Drop Rate of 6, and all with the sweet expanded art frame.
