Note that a given player’s sealed pool and all packs in any given draft pod will always be from the same version.

The description of Limited events will tell you which Shadows of the Past theme version is being used. If you’re looking to draft a new theme on its start date, check the event page description to ensure it uses the version you want to play.


Shadows over Innistrad Remastered Pack
Shadows over Innistrad Remastered Pack

Each Shadows over Innistrad Remastered packs contain a card from the Shadows of the Past collection. This card can be of any rarity, but you’ll always receive a Shadows over Innistrad Remastered rare or mythic rare card, so packs could potentially contain two rares and/or mythic rares.

It’s worth noting that Shadows over Innistrad Remastered Store packs do not follow the Shadows of the Past event schedule above. Any card from Shadows of the Past may appear in these Store packs at any time, regardless of when they were acquired, opened, or what theme they’re listed in below!

Wildcards will never replace a Shadows of the Past card, only the base Shadows over Innistrad Remastered cards. Duplicate protection applies to rares and mythic rares, separately both by rarity and between the Shadows of the Past cards and the base Shadows over Innistrad Remastered cards.


This list includes all cards from Shadows of the Past that can appear in Shadows over Innistrad Remastered packs. Store packs can have any of these cards appear and are not subject to the theme schedule shown above.
