Fat pack

Jump to: navigation, search

A fat pack is a special Magic product from WOTC, consisting of several of their products. The fat pack is useful to both beginners and thorough collectors.

Fat packs were first introduced with Mercadian Masques. There has been a fat pack for every expansion and Core Set since.

History[edit]

Fat packs originally had a MSRP of U.S. $24.95. It contained three booster packs, a tournament pack, two premium cards, a visual guide and a novel.

Ninth Edition[edit]

Starting with Ninth Edition, fat packs were redesigned with a cardboard piece surrounding two boxes. This cardboard piece could be unglued from itself and inside was a panorama artpiece. [1] The two premium cards were removed. [2]

Ravnica: City of Guilds[edit]

Starting with Ravnica: City of Guilds, the visual card encyclopedia in the back of the player's guide was changed from completely alphabetical to by color then alphabetical within each color. [3]

Shadowmoor[edit]

Starting with Shadowmoor, the fat pack was resdesigned so that the panorama artpiece surrounded just one card box (cardboard inserts allowed it to contain the contents, once the inserts and contents were removed the card box is the same size as previous card boxes). The artpiece is 2¼" smaller in unwrapped length. The number of boosters increased from 6 to 8.

Shards of Alara[edit]

Starting with Shards of Alara, the fat pack's content was changed replacing the novel with a brief introduction of the expansion's respective novel or Planeswalker's Guide. The Pro Tour Player card was removed.

Mirrodin Besieged[edit]

In the Mirrodin Besieged, the fat pack's content was changed removing the brief introduction of the expansion's respective novel. The amount of boosters increased from 8 to 9 and the land pack contained 80 lands, 40 from Scars of Mirrodin and 40 from Mirrodin Besieged. Two deck boxes were added.
