  • Gold: 2 Ikoria: Lair of the Behemoths booster packs + 1000 gold + Bastion of Remembrance Card Style

As a general reminder, card styles are a cosmetic option only and does not add any cards to a player’s collection. There is no benefit to acquiring a card style more than once; if you achieve Gold Rank or higher in both Limited and Constructed, you will only receive one copy of the card style.
