Check out the full range of products releasing with Strixhaven.

Wizards of the Coast (WotC) has released the full product overview for Strixhaven: School of Mages, including a look at the new College-themed Prerelease Packs.

Prerelease Packs

Players will align themselves with one of Strixhaven‘s five colleges and select a Prerelease Pack that’s designed to match each college’s unique aesthetic. These Prerelease Packs include everything needed to build a Sealed deck, including:

  • 1 College Booster containing a rare or mythic rare guaranteed to match your chosen college, 3 uncommons, 9 commons, and 2 tokens
  • 5 Draft Boosters
  • 1 Year-stamped foil rare or mythic rare card (with a new stamp!)
  • 1 College-themed spindown
  • 1 Insert portraying a piece of the campus map
  • 1 Reusable box with divider

Commander Decks

Each Strixhaven Commander deck is themed to match one of the five colleges, and contain “81 new cards,” plus the following:

  • 100 Cards (98 regular, 2 foil)
  • 1 Foil-etched display commander
  • 10 Double-sided tokens
  • 1 Life wheel
  • 1 Deck box

Set Boosters

Set Boosters return with Strixhaven, and are designed for those who enjoy the thrill of opening packs, rather than Drafting. Each Set Booster includes the following:

  • 1 Mystical Archive card (uncommon, rare, or mythic rare)
  • 1 Lesson card of any rarity
  • 1 Traditional foil card of any rarity*
  • 1 Card from The List in 1 out of 4 boosters
  • 1 Art Card

Draft Boosters

Strixhaven Draft Boosters remain a comfortable consistent, with the only change being to include cards from the Mystical Archive. According to WotC, in Japanese Booster packs, “50% of all Mystical Archive cards will have the… alternate art and frame.”

  • 1 Rare or mythic rare
  • 1 Mystical Archive card (uncommon, rare, or mythic rare)
  • 1 Lesson card (common, rare, or mythic rare)
  • 3 Uncommons
  • 9 Commons
  • 1 Common card replaced by a foil card of any rarity* in 1 out of 3 boosters

Collector Boosters

Designed with collectors in mind, Collector Boosters contain the most sought-after cards from the set. These include “two foil-etched Mystical Archive cards”, one of which will be “global and the other will always be the Japanese alternate-art variant.” You can view the full contents of the Collector Boosters below.

Strixhaven Bundles

Bundles are a great gift for new and veteran players and contain a “large quantity of cards with some exciting bonuses.”

  • 10 Draft Boosters
  • 20 Foil basic lands
  • 20 Regular basic lands
  • 1 Bundle alt-art promo card
  • 1 Exclusive oversized spindown
  • 1 Card storage box

Theme Boosters

Lastly, Theme Boosters return with Strixhaven, and remain the perfect introductory-level product. Strixhaven Theme Boosters are aligned with each of the five colleges, so new players can easily build a deck containing cards from the college of their choice. Each Theme Booster is filled with a “combination of 1–2 rares and/or mythic rares and 33–34 commons and uncommons.”
