Special Alchemy Events
Premier Draft New Capenna Alchemy: June 2–6
Here's an opportunity to get Alchemy cards through drafting! In this special event, players draft three packs of Streets of New Capenna, but one common card in each pack is replaced with a card from Alchemy: New Capenna. This card can be any rarity, so some packs will have multiple rares!
Each Draft pack contains one card from Alchemy: New Capenna.
- 55% of packs contain an uncommon card.
- 38.57% of packs contain a rare card.
- 6.43% of packs contain a mythic rare card.
- Each rare appears twice as often as each mythic rare.
Premier Draft New Capenna Alchemy has the same entry and payouts as the familiar Premier Draft events and awards Alchemy: New Capenna packs. The usual Premier Draft New Capenna event will remain available throughout the weekend as well.
Alchemy: New Capenna packs will also now be awarded by Alchemy events, traditional Alchemy events, and the upcoming Alchemy Metagame Challenge for those who want to stick to Constructed play.
