To celebrate the release of Modern Masters I have done something not done before on my YouTube channel, an unboxing for a whole Booster Box.
Check out the unboxing below.
No Tarmogoyf in this one, but I did get a Bob.
Using the 2 boosters I pulled from the 2 Intro Pack unboxings, and another 2 I bought, I decided to build a 30-card sealed deck. This was inspired by the MTGO format that is popular with a lot of people.
Here are the 2 videos I shot, first the pack cracks, then the build.
Good to see unboxing/openings out there which a bit different from the usual stuff. Check out Gabe and his Dad. Very entertaining. Good job guys.
WOTC have announced a new product, Booster Battle Packs, designed as an introduction to the limited format. The MSRP is $9.99.
Each Booster Battle Pack contains:
- Two 20-card semi-randomized decks
- Two 15-card Magic 2012 Core Set booster packs
- Magic "learn to play" guide
- Rules insert
- Release date is, September 9, 2011.

I have just finished opening the last two booster packs from my Mirrodin Besieged fat pack. I always try to buy a fat pack when each set comes out and open the boosters over several weeks, as a treat.
Boy, what a treat I got today. In the first booster I pulled a foil of Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas. Wow! I then realised that the rare card in the pack was Phyrexian Crusader. Double Wow!
While I was returning from my trip this morning I swung by the Walmart at Dartmouth Crossing just to see what Magic: The Gathering stuff they had.
Well it was a bit thin on the ground. At the back of the shop, over in the toy section, by the Nintendo DS stuff, they had a number of Shards Of Alara Foil Booster Packs. While up by one of the tills, at the front of the shop, they had a lone 2010 Core Set Booster Pack.
It will be interesting to see how often they re-stock, or whether they will just wait until Rise Of The Eldrazi comes out.
I was out dropping off some leaflets for future delivery and so I had to take a trip over to Burnside Industrial Estate in Dartmouth, where the Canada Post depot is. While I was over there I could not help but pop into D & M Sports Cards on Iisley Avenue and see if they had the Magic: The Gathering Phyrexia vs. The Coalition Duel Decks. Sure enough they had several packs in stock, so I bought a pack along with some Ultra Pro black chromatic deck protectors for a ‘black’ deck I have and a single Worldwake booster for my card collection.
If you are wondering what’s in the Duel Decks here is the link to the product listing on the Magic: The Gathering web site. It gives the deck list for both decks in the pack.
I did try filming an ‘unboxing’ but I need to work on my camera/composition skills a bit as I went ‘out of frame’ for several cards.
Anyway, when I got back from my excursion, after doing some other shopping for easter, I sat down with a nice hot drink and opened up my Worldwake booster, here is what I got.
