IMG_20150820_141540Fantasy Crate is a monthly Magic: The Gathering subscription service that comes in two varieties. The first option is the “Magic Crate” that includes at least 3 MTG packs plus other Magic-related collectibles. And there’s the “Draft Crate” which includes 6 packs MTG packs and a MTG gear item like sleeves, dice or a deck box.

Fantasy Crate arrived in a large well-padded envelope.

July’s Draft Crate included 2 packs of the newest Magic Origins expansion, 4 packs of Dragons of Tarkir and a 80 pack of matte sleeves.

6 packs of the newest and final Magic the Gathering core set, Magic Origins. Thopter Spy Network was a great rare pull but the best was my first pack-opened Planeswalker, Liliana. Liliana is a flip card that starts as her Heretical Healer creature form and is flipped into Defiant Necromancer Planeswalker.

An official Ultra Pro Magic Origins deck box featuring Liliana in both her Heretical Healer and Defiant Necromancer forms. The lid locks and it includes a Liliana divider.

Large set of blue dice that’s small enough to work great as counters on cards.

Also from Chessex are two 20-sided dice in red and blue. In Magic these are used as spindown life counters.

IMG_20150820_141730While both Fantasy Crate’s draft and magic crates are both awesome, I think this is the first time I preferred the draft crate. 6 packs of Origins, the Liliana deck box with fantastic art and a bunch of useful dice. Probably a bit biased since I also pulled the Liliana planeswalker from one of these packs.

If you’re a fan of Magic the Gathering you will be a fan of Fantasy Crate.
