Changes in Magic: the Gathering’s Rarity Distribution

Along with the newest Magic block’s first set, Shards of Alara, come changes to the distribution and rarity of magic cards.

Card sets will be smaller. They are introducing a new rarity level called “mythic rare”, which will be seven times more rare than “rare”. Boosters will include 1 rare, 3 uncommons, 10 commons, 1 land, and 1 tip card or token card. One out of 8 boosters will include a mythic rare instead of a regular rare. And there will be something in the way of “intro packs” for new players.
