Historic Booster Packs
Store pack rewards received will be evenly split between the following sets: Guilds of Ravnica, Ravnica Allegiance, Amonkhet Remastered, and Kaladesh Remastered.
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.
In addition to the rewards based on your play record, all players who enter will receive the Thopter Pie Network sleeve.
