You may find Ultimate Rares and Ghost Rares a little more difficult to find now…
A preview of these following changes to booster packs will be first implemented when High-Speed Riders is released for the TCG. Dimension of Chaos will be unaffected by these changes, but it will be the last booster pack to have Ultimate Rares and Ghost Rares as a result. These following changes will be permanently implemented by the January 15, 2016 release of Breakers of Shadow.
To summarize the upcoming changes to the TCG’s booster packs:
** There will be a regular 9 cards per pack: 1 foil + 1 Rare + 7 Commons
** With this, you are guaranteed 1 foil card in every pack – either Super, Ultra, or Secret Rare.
** If you get an Ultra or Secret Rare, it will replace the Super Rare. You will never get 2 foil cards per pack, just the 1 foil card.
** Each 24-pack box will have, on average, 2 Secret Rares, 4 Ultra Rares, and 18 Super Rares
** Ultra Rares will be found in 1 out every 6 packs, and Secret Rares will be found in 1 out of every 12 packs. (If you don’t manage to pull an Ultra or Secret Rare card, you’ll always get a Super Rare. Just repeating for clarity.)
** Ultimate Rares are moving exclusively to tournament packs (what we know as Astral Packs, Tournament Packs, Champion Packs, etc.).
** Ghost Rares are being removed… for now. (They may see an eventual return in booster packs or something else. Who knows?)
** Each set will still have 8 Secret Rares, 10 Ultra Rares, 14 Super Rares, 20 Rares
** MSRP is unchanged (the store price is the same)
