It’s the set I’ve been waiting for and it’s finally here! Phyrexia: All Will Be One is ready to hit shelves on February 10th and it’s gonna be a doozy!
As with all new Magic: The Gathering sets, I wanted to give you a quick breakdown of the different products you can buy for this great set where the Planeswalkers begin their assault on New Phyrexia! There’s quite a bit to break down as always, including Dual Color and Sphere lands, some of the best Legendary Creatures and a few artifacts and other cards that will knock your Phyrexian socks off! It’s a wait that was well worth it!
Phyrexia: All Will Be One is the 95th Magic expansion set and will include the normal list of products:
- Prerelease Packs
- Draft Booster Boxes
- Set Booster Boxes
- Collector Booster Boxes
- Commander Decks
- Jumpstart Booster Boxes
- Regular Bundle and Compleat Edition Bundle Boxes
So let’s break them down a bit so you understand what comes in each of these items and that will hopefully help you make a decision on which product fits your wants and needs. All of these have links to Amazon.com where you can get these items shipped directly to your home.
As I always do, I encourage you to support your local game store (LGS) first, but know that you can get them on Amazon very easily and at competitive prices too. We make a little bit of commission on every Amazon sale so for those of you using our links, we really appreciate your support as that helps the website tremendously.
That being said, let’s jump into Phyrexia: All Will Be One and talk about the set, what you’ll get in each box, and my outlook on how the set will do in the market.
- 1 #1 – MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One – PRERELEASE Packs
- 2 #2 – MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One DRAFT Booster Boxes
- 3 #3 – MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One SET Booster Boxes
- 4 #4 – MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One COLLECTOR Booster Boxes
- 5 #5 – MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One COMMANDER Decks
- 6 #6 – MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One JUMPSTART Booster Boxes
- 7 #7 – MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One BUNDLE and COMPLEAT BUNDLE Boxes
- 8 That Just About Wraps It Up….BUT, There’s One Last Thing
#1 – MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One – PRERELEASE Packs
Although it’s called a “pack”, it’s actually a box of different items. Every MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One Prerelease Pack contains the following:
- (6) Draft Booster Packs
- (1) foil-stamped rare or mythic rare card
- (1) MTG Arena code card
- (1) deck box
- (1) Spindown life counter.
Unlike The Brothers’ War Prerelease boxes which had two versions, there is only one Phyrexia Prerelease box being printed this year. Contents will be the same, but only one box version.
I think Prerelease packs (or boxes) are great to get to know the set and also they make awesome gifts. Whenever a new set comes out, I get at least one of these to see if I like the set and if I want to buy more. It’s an inexpensive way to open a few packs and see if it’s worth investing more.
Since I don’t play ARENA too much, the value for me is in the packs and the special foil stamped card that’s included. Normal retail is around $29.99 but you can often find them for a few dollars less if you hunt around. Most eBay sellers are offering them for $25 plus tax so there are some deals out there for sure.
If you don’t want to invest a lot of money into a set or are just trying it out (or need a gift for a Magic fan), then I would suggest picking one of these up.
You’re basically paying close to retail price for the packs and getting a bunch of really cool extras thrown in. It’s a better deal than paying $4-5 per pack from a retail store or card show because of those extras.
I like these Prerelease packs simply for the value so definitely consider picking one up.
#2 – MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One DRAFT Booster Boxes
The Draft Booster Box is definitely a pack ripper’s go-to box. It’s usually the least expensive way to buy packs in bulk for the best price.
Every MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One DRAFT Booster Box contains the following:
- (36) Draft Booster Packs
- (15) Magic cards per Draft Booster Pack
- Every Draft pack contains at least (1) Phyrexianized Land or Panorama Full-Art Land
- Every Draft pack contains at least (1) Rare or Mythic card
- 33% of Draft packs contain at least (1) Traditional Foil card
If you like to just rip packs (and who doesn’t) or if you’re into drafting decks with your friends, the Draft Booster Box will be your best and most cost effective choice. Boxes tend to float around $110-130 per box when they first hit shelves and from there prices will fluctuate based on demand. If everyone loves the set and supply is low, expect prices to creep up over time. But in the beginning there should be ample supply to have prices remain in this range.
#3 – MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One SET Booster Boxes
So if the Draft Booster Box is good for lots of cards at a decent price and for drafting with your friends, SET Booster Boxes are more for the person wanting a greater chance at better cards and ripping open packs that might have a bit more excitement and fun to them.
And although you’ll get 6-less packs in the Set Box versus the Draft box, the cards you’ll find inside can be way better and more exciting as well!
Every MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One SET Booster Box contains the following:
- (30) Set Booster Packs
- (12) Magic cards per Set Booster Pack
Plus EVERY Set Booster Pack will contain the following:
- (1) Art Card
- At least (1) Showcase Ichor card
- At least (1) Traditional Foil card
- (1) Phyrexianized Land OR Panorama Full-Art Land
- 20% of packs will contain a Traditional Foil Land (so roughly 6 of these in every Set Booster Box)
- 1–4 Rare and/or Mythic cards
So as you’ll see from the above list, Set Booster Boxes are typically loaded with the best cards.
The overall amount of cards is a bit lower than Draft boxes (because there are fewer packs per box), but the value is way better in most people’s opinions because of the amount of rare, mythic, foil and chase cards you can find.
I think this set will be highlighted by the awesome land cards.
Every set booster pack will contain the Phyrexianized Land or Panorama Full-Art Land cards and they are simply awesome. Check them out below.
In addition, you’ll also be able to find the Borderless Ichor Showcase Cards in every set booster pack. This will be one of forty (40) hand-selected cards (across all rarities) highlighting the Phyrexians in foil, non foil, or Step-and-Compleat foil (which we’ll talk about below.)
In a nutshell, Set Booster Boxes will be LOADED and worth the investment!
Prices for Set Booster Boxes tend to float around $110-130 when they first come out and will also fluctuate based on supply and demand. But for the most part, we should see prices stick in this level for quite a while after release based on recent history.
#4 – MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One COLLECTOR Booster Boxes
MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One Collector Booster Boxes cost quite a bit more than Draft and Set Booster Boxes, but as we say time and time again “You Get What You Pay For!”
Collector Booster Boxes are the ‘best of the best’ when it comes to Magic cards and although you do not get many packs, the ones you do get are absolutely LOADED with good cards.
Here’s what you’ll get in a MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One Collector Booster Box:
- (12) COLLECTOR Booster packs
- (15) Magic cards + (1) foil token per Collector Booster Pack
Plus EVERY Collector Booster Pack will contain the following:
- 5-6 cards that are Rare and/or Mythic
- At least (10) Traditional Foil cards.
- (1) Step-and-Compleat Foil card
- At least (2) Extended-Art cards
- At least (2) Showcase Ichor cards
- (1) Traditional Foil Phyrexianized Land or Panorama Full-Art Land
Also, 3% of Collector Booster Packs will contain a Traditional Foil Borderless Mythic Planeswalker! And did I mention that Collector Booster Packs are the only Phyrexia: All Will Be One packs to contain Step-and-Compleat FOIL cards? These boxes are SUPER LOADED which is why Collector Booster Boxes will be super hot amongst Magic players and collectors alike!
Boxes will retail for approximately $200-225 when they first hit the shelves. Again, as with the other booster boxes, I think prices will remain relatively the same for a period of time until inventories dry up.
#5 – MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One COMMANDER Decks
If you’re a Commander fan, the Phyrexia: All Will Be One preconstructed Commander Decks look to be on par with (if not better) than past sets!
There are TWO different Commander decks this year: CORRUPTING INFLUENCE and REBELLION RISING. Each deck is a combination of different colors so there’s something here for every Commander fan.
Each of the MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One Commander Decks (either set) includes the following:
- (1) Ready-to-play-out-of-the-box 100-card Commander deck
- (2) Traditional Foils and (98) Non Foils
- (10) of the cards are brand new cards not found in Draft/Set/Collector Booster packs and are unique to these Commander Decks – Never Before Seen MTG Cards!
- (1) Collector Booster Sample Pack which contains (1) Traditional Foil Showcase Ichor card and (1) Borderless or Extended-Art card
- (10) double sided tokens
- A bunch of accessories are also included: (10) double-sided tokens, life tracker, deck box, and (1) foil-etched Display Commander
There is certainly a lot of value in these two decks, which makes the purchase price of roughly $45 each worth it. Most times you’ll see the value coming from the new and unique cards that Wizards adds to the set since the only way you can get them is by buying the Commander Deck. In the case of these two decks, that’s certainly the case.
For the 1st Commander Deck called “CORRUPTING INFLUENCE”, it will be a combination WHITE, BLACK and GREEN deck. The two big Commanders that will be anchoring this deck are Ixhel Scion of Atraxa (which is the deck’s facecard on the package) and the newly revealed Vishgraz the Doomhive, a 3/3 Phyrexian Insect with Menace and Toxic!
The 2nd Commander Deck called “REBELLION RISING” will be a RED/WHITE deck. It will feature the main Commander Neyali Suns’ Vanguard, a 3/3 Legendary Creature that gives Double Strike to your attacking tokens and the ability to exile a card from the top of your library AND play that card when your token attacks that turn. The alternate Commander you’ll receive, Otharri Suns’ Glory, is a 3/3 Legendary Phoenix with Flying, Lifelink and Haste with all sorts of other abilities. It’s a killer deck for sure!
Definitely some good value from our friends at WotC!
If you’re a Commander fan, I would definitely add these decks to your collection. From early feedback they look to be awesome decks with some decent value, especially if you play Commander often.
#6 – MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One JUMPSTART Booster Boxes
I’ve mentioned before that I’m a big fan of Jumpstart (check out my Jumpstart 2022 post) and the outlook on Phyrexia: All Will Be One Jumpstart is pretty good.
I like that both novice Magic players as well as seasoned pro’s can have fun building really easy and fun to play decks right out of the box. You open two (2) of the 20-card packs, shuffle them together and you’re ready to play a game!
Although the Jumpstart product line has had a bumpy road as of late as some weren’t thrilled with the selection of cards in the packs, it’s too early to tell if the Phyrexia version will be any different. That being said, let’s see what you get in the box and figure out if it’s worth a buy right now.
Each MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One Jumpstart Booster Boxes contains the following:
- (18) Jumpstart Booster packs
- (20) cards in every Jumpstart Booster pack
- (2) of the cards in the pack will be Traditional FOIL Land cards
- (2) of the cards in the pack will be Rare cards, with one of those Rare cards being unique to Jumpstart (meaning that rare card won’t be found in any other Phyrexia: All Will Be One products.)
- There are (5) possible themes and each theme has (2) different variations. So every Jumpstart pack has the possibility of getting one of these themes or theme variations.
Most packs will get you (12) creature/sorcery/enchantment/instant Magic cards (2 of which are Rare), (8) traditional land cards and (2) foil land cards. Buy two packs, shuffle them and you’re ready to play!
WotC originally had this as a stand-alone product labeled as Jumpstart 2020 and Jumpstart 2022, but they started adding them to the product line for each set as well.
The ones related to the individual sets like this one for Phyrexia don’t appear to be as strong as the stand alone product. But only time will tell.
I like the cards in the packs and if you haven’t tried Jumpstart before, maybe now is the time to try it out. Boxes retail for around $80-85 and normally I would say to hold off as prices for previous sets have dropped into the $50’s and $60’s.
However single card prices for the Phyrexia Jumpstart set have been selling like hot cakes on eBay so that could drive those box prices up. At the time of this post, Amazon has a great deal on this Jumpstart so check it out.
#7 – MTG Phyrexia: All Will Be One BUNDLE and COMPLEAT BUNDLE Boxes
There are two different Bundle Box deals in this years Phyrexia: All Will Be One product line and both have some cool features.
The Main (regular) Phyrexia: All Will Be One Bundle Box contains the following:
- (8) SET Booster packs, each of which contain the following:
- (1) Phyrexianized Land or Panorama Full-Art Land in every Set Booster Pack
- (1) Showcase Ichor card in every Set Booster Pack
- (1) COLLECTOR Booster pack
- A “Karumonix, the Rat King” Traditional Foil Art Promo Card
- (40) Basic Land cards (20 regular lands and 20 foil lands)
- Spindown Life Counter
- Foil Card Storage Box
There is also a special Phyrexia: All Will Be One Compleat Edition Bundle which will be quite a bit different and most likely more desirable. Each Compleat Edition Bundle contains the following:
- (12) SET Booster packs, each of which contain the following:
- (1) Phyrexianized Land or Panorama Full-Art Land in every Set Booster Pack
- (1) Showcase Ichor card in every Set Booster Pack
- (1) Compleat Edition Booster which contains (12) Oil Slick Raised Foil cards, with (2) Mythic Rares and (10) Basic Lands (2 of each type)
- (1) Exclusive Phyrexian Language Traditional Foil Rare promo card “Phyrexian Arena”
- (40) Traditional Foil Land cards that celebrate the glory of Phyrexia which includes (20) Phyrexianized Lands and (20) Panorama Full-Art Lands
- Special Compleat Edition Exclusive Foil Card Box
So as you’ll see there are some subtle differences between the REGULAR BUNDLE and COMPLEAT EDITION BUNDLE boxes. I think overall the Compleat edition will be more expensive and more desirable so be sure to check prices going forward.
As it stands, the regular Bundle box is going for about $40-50 and is scheduled to be released with the rest of the other products on the February 10, 2023 release date. The Compleat Edition Bundle is slated to be released on March 3, 2023 so that will be delayed. Pricing for that set is TBD (although I have seen presales in the $125-$175 range.)
That Just About Wraps It Up….BUT, There’s One Last Thing
Although this set is just about to be released and we have no history to tell if it’ll be a good investment, there are a few things to watch when it comes to value.
INVESTMENT TIP#1: The OIL SLICK Raised Foil Cards found in the Compleat Bundle are gonna be tough to get and super HOT. Presale prices for some of those singles are already well over $100 on TCGPlayer. I’d recommend grabbing a Compleat Bundle Box if you can find one as the print run will most likely be way less than even the normally short printed Collector Booster Boxes.
INVESTMENT TIP#2: One of the big cards to watch is the Urtet, Remnant of Memnarch which has two versions: the Commander version which you’ll find in Set Booster Packs and an Extended Art version found in Collector Booster Packs. The Set Booster version will be a MYTHIC Rare while the Collector Booster Extended Art version will be a regular Rare. Both cards are already pre-selling for $20-$25 each and this card certainly could be one of the big ones to chase. Worth your investment? For the right deck, absolutely!
INVESTMENT TIP#3: I think Collector Booster boxes will come out of the gates just as hot as those boxes normally are, but look for the Compleat Edition Bundle box to steal some of its thunder come early March. Collector Booster box prices will most likely fluctuate as money moves to the Compleat Edition Bundle and those fancy Oil Slick cards. But that will be the time to strike and go for the Collector Boosters. Especially if prices dip substantially.
Watch YouTube for Collector Booster box openings and see how excited people are for those box openings. Monitor Collector Booster box prices on Amazon and eBay too to ensure you understand the market.
If the boxes are extremely powerful and people are getting tons of great cards, that bodes well for the Collector Boosters in the long run. If they’re just meh or so-so, then be careful buying them even after the price dip in March.
That’s all for now. Thanks for reading our Phyrexia: All Will Be One Ultimate Product Guide! If you want to chat about this set or have any questions, I would enjoy hearing from you. Check out our contact page and send me a note and I’ll be happy to answer any questions.
Take care and keep investing in Magic cards!
