TWO RARES. TWO FOILS. TOO POWERFUL.
Announcing Double Masters, a set so filled to the brim with powerful and popular reprints that we've announced it twice. Oh, and we put two rare or mythic rare cards in each pack!
This is, admittedly, a strange time to be announcing a new product, but even as we all deal with the realities of how COVID-19 is shaping the world, it's good to have something to look forward to. And we think Double Masters is going to be something to look forward to.
We're just going to give you a little bit of information here, but make sure you tune in today (May 21) at 2:30 p.m. PT on twitch.tv/magic for a closer look at what Double Masters is, means, and has in store. And if you keep reading, you'll see how you can help pick what preview cards we unveil later today!
So, what is Double Masters? Let's get into it!
Release Date: August 7, 2020
- 332 cards
- 24 packs per booster box
- 15-card booster packs, with two rares and two foil cards per pack! (And, yes, those foils can be up to two additional rares.)
- Two non-foil showcase box topper cards included in each booster box
- Available in English, French, German, Simplified Chinese, and Japanese
Double Masters will be available on Magic Online starting August 6 (ONE day early!) for $6.99 per booster. It will not be redeemable.
We've doubled everything about Double Masters. Double the rare slots, double the box toppers, double the first-picks in Draft. Double the announcement articles!
That's right, you heard correctly! In addition to double the rares and foils in every pack, every box of Double Masters comes with two (TWO!) non-foil showcase box toppers, which are pulled from a pool of 40 fan-favorite cards in beautiful full-art treatments.
And keeping in the spirit of doubling your experience, we'll be replacing Collector Boosters with something we're calling VIP Edition (for this product only). We'll have more details on what that is as we get a little closer to release, but it will be filled to the brim with awesome stuff.
Now, to quell one rumor before it begins, there are no fetch land reprints in this set. We know we told you we'd be making fetch happen in a set later this year, and we promise we will, but Double Masters is not that set.
You will, however, be able to snag sweet cards like, oh, I dunno, Blightsteel Colossus in Double Masters! And because we like you so much, we'll even show it to you now—alongside the ultra-snazzy showcase box topper version!
And if that's not enough of a teaser for you, head on over to @Wizards_Magic to vote on which of four mystery cards you'd like Blake and Steve to preview this afternoon on Weekly MTG!
August 7 may seem like forever away from now, but it'll pass in the blink of an eye. (Or two eyes? DOUBLE!) If you can tide yourself over until late July, we'll be back to begin previewing the whole set.
