Historic Booster Packs

Store pack rewards received will be evenly split between the following sets: Amonkhet Remastered, Kaladesh Remastered, and Core Set 2019.

Historic Individual Card Rewards (ICRs)

Historic ICRs grant cards from pack releases on MTG Arena. They do not include cards that were released outside of packs (e.g. cards from Historic Anthologies). Historic rare ICRs may upgrade to a mythic rare, each rare is twice as likely to be awarded as each mythic rare. Card sleeve rewards are evenly distributed and duplicate protected; if you already have all four card sleeves in your collection you will receive no additional reward.
