What’s in a Promo Pack (Magic: the Gathering)

June 24, 2019

New in Core Set 2020, universal Promo Packs are replacing all previous event-specific promos.

These packs contain four cards each, using four slots which will contain one of a specific collection of cards:

  • Slot 1: A promo-stamped version of any rare or mythic rare from the current set
  • Slot 2: 75% of the time this will be another promo-stamped rare or mythic rare from a curated list (Core Set 2020); 25% of the time it will be a Japanese alternate-art planeswalker from War of the Spark (true in Core Set 2020)
  • Slot 3: A promo-stamped alternate-art basic land
  • Slot 4: One of five cards from the current set in the dark frame of previous FNM promos
