PostSubject: What are the odds ?   Wed Feb 10, 2010 12:12 am

So what are the odds on getting a mythic rare when opening booster packs from a regular booster box of cards. Are they any different when purchasing a fat pack ? I have heard different answers on this and its hard to separate fact from fiction.

My experience has been that you get 1 mythic rare out of about every 12 booster packs.

Someone I recently introduced to Magic has been smashing this average. He has been averaging a mythic about every 4 packs. The guy has the new Jace already, Omnath and several other mythics from Zendikar and Worldwake. I don't know how he does it. I think I'm just going to buy the cards and let him pick them out and open them up for me.

As far as I know, Mythics should be opened about 1/8 of packs.

My box had 6 in it so yeah...

As for an average of how many Mythic rares that Mythic Matt pulls on average:

Heheh, I'd say it's at least 1:3.6

I already have more than 15 mythics from about 60 packs so you do the math. XD

Notably: 4 are Omnath (ones a foil). And I have 3 Comet Stormz.

Had the Demon guy but traded that straight across for the Angel.

Oddly enough I haven't gotten the Bazar Trader yet...

The 1 fat pack of Worldwake that I busted open had 2 mythics in it. 1 was foil. Seems my luck is alot better with the fat packs.

Went to Past Times today with someone from work. I busted open 10 packs packs of ROE and got 1 Mythic. I busted open 4 more packs, 1 from M10, 1 from WW, 1 from Zen and 1 from Conflux. No Mythics. I got a couple of good rares but nothing amazing.

My buddy buys 4 packs. 1st pack, Kargan Dragonlord. 2nd pack, nothing too special. 3rd pack Sarkhan the Mad. 4th pack, nothing too special. All I can say is OMFG I got screwed. This is typical for him. Within the first 5 packs of WW he purchased he got a Jace. After purchasing less than 10 boosters of ROE he had a Gideon Jura, and another mythic. I think it was Kozilek.

Some people have all the luck. Seems to me that I am better off just buying Mythics rather than trying to find them in boosters. Mad

Odds of opening a mythic rare are 1 in 8. This has been stated by wizards, it is how they do their print runs.

It doesn't matter weather you buy a box, a fatpack, or a random booster pack. Odds of opening a mythic rare are 1 in 8.

The odds are always estimated. They are NEVER guaranteed. Otherwise they would have a system of somehow marking their packs and therefore be able to find out how many of each type of rare went into a box.

Think about it. How many times have you opened a box and you NEVER got a duplicate rare.
