And there’s the “Draft Crate” which includes 6 packs MTG packs and a MTG gear item like sleeves, dice or a deck box.

3 booster packs from the Dragons of Tarkir expansion. One of my favorite sets considering the majority of my main deck (Green/White Counters) is from DoT along with Fate Reforged and Khans. Some great pulls including Dragonlord Silumgar (Mythic Rare), Icefall Regent (Rare), Thunderbreak Regent (Rare) and the crazy underrated Servant of the Scale (Common). There was also foils of Qal Sisma Behemoth (Uncommon) and a Swamp.

An intro deck and booster pack from Magic: The Gathering’s final core set, Magic Origins. The Intro Deck included is “Take to the Skies”, a blue/white combo that’s heavy on flying creatures. The deck includes two rares, Alhamerret High Arbiter and Soulblade Djinn. There’s also the rules card and a detailed fold-out double-sided poster that describes all of the intro packs and includes tips for improving them. The intro pack also includes 2 more boosters, it was a total of 3 packs of Origins I cracked open. Notable cards included Graveblade Marauder (Rare), Pia and Kiran Nalaar (Rare) and Kothoped, Soul Hoarder (Rare). There was also a pretty sweet Foil Fleshbag Marauder (Uncommon).

New Ultra Pro Deck Box featuring Nissa, Vastwood Seer before she became a planeswalker. The box has a different way of closing now, it’s hard to explain but i’m not a big fan. The whole front piece lifts and closes instead of just the lid.

Again it’s an awesome Magic Crate from the folks at Fantasy Crate. 3 packs of Dragons of Tarkir, 3 packs of Magic Origins AND a pre-made deck. To top that off they include a brand new Origins deck box. It’s a great value considering it’s $40 worth of MTG product for under $31 including shipping.

If you play Magic: The Gathering you need to check out Fantasy Crate’s Magic and Draft Crates.
