With supplemental Magic: The Gathering sets, the biggest question is always exactly what you can expect to see. Double Masters 2022, much like its predecessor, is defined by one word: value. Specifically, as the name implies, double the value! Every pack is filled with strong cards from throughout Magic’s long and storied history, with each pack guaranteed to have two traditional foils.
In addition to guaranteed shiny pieces to add to your collection, Double Masters packs also have an above-average number of rare or better cards. Each pack has at least two rares or mythics, with some containing up to four! Pulling a bomb rare or valuable piece already feels great, so the chance to double up on that value feels truly exceptional. Even better for collectors, you can discover interesting, alternative art pieces and etched foil variants that add even more shine to your trade binder.
Double the Power
Purely by the numbers, Double Masters 2022 promises plenty of value, but what can we really expect? Power, for sure, with cards like the Eldrazi titans representing some of the coolest cards to come off of the printers at Wizards of the Coast. There are few things scarier than dropping a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, and Double Masters 2022 can bring that beautiful nightmare to your table. It’s a reasonable guess that we’ll be seeing the other Titans as well, so it’s time to start thinking about the best ways to Annihilate your play group.
More than just pure power, Double Masters 2022 is more than likely to print some stellar staples, with a focus on value reprints for popular formats like Commander. For example, Weathered Wayfarer goes into a massive number of white Commander decks, and likely represents the kinds of cards we can expect out of the set. Perhaps we’ll get to see some much-needed reprints like Dockside Extortionist or Rhystic Study. Sound off in the comments with the cards you’re hoping to see!
Looks like my prediction is half-right so far!
