distribution problem in SOI packs

Post by effai » Fri Apr 08, 2016 4:38 pm

Ok, I just ordered one pack for now, but there seems to be some problems with the flip cards :
I got a kindly stranger/demon-possessed witch (unco) and a westvale abbey/ormendahl, profane prince (rare) in the last 2 common slots .
So in a pack, I got 8 commons, 4 uncos, 1 rare, 1 mythic. did this happen to anyone else ? (I'm not really complaining since I got a free westvale abbey though...)

edit : in 2nd pack I got 4 uncos
in 3rd pack I got 4 uncos, 1 rare and 1 mythic foil
4th pack : 4 uncos, 3 rares ! (one is foil)

at the end, I got 32 different rares and 8 mythics, not bad, but then I realized, they increased the number of mythic to 18 !!! Plus we're getting 6 edition every year now, time are getting harder for collectors :s

Would you mind sharing the serial number printed on the back of the box?

Your Box is totaly normal.

Each booster contains 1 rare/mythic 3 uncommons 1 "flip" card (that can be a common, uncommon, rare or mythic) and the rest are commons (1 foil can replace 1 common).

So the ultimate pack is 1 foil Mythic + 1 Mythic + 1 Mythic flip + 1 Emblem :D

I also had one pack with 3 Rares ( Foil,Normal,Flip)
However, even if the set is bigger the previous sets, i still wonder why i miss 2 normal rares ( not flip) completely after opening 4 boxes ?
Additionally, the Flip Rares/mythics are slighty more rare than regular Rares/mythics, since only few packs have one. They probably come from seperate printsheets.

Beside that, there are 2 versions of german non foil "Thing in the Ice" , one has a weird black line in the textbox. A whole printrun like this exists:

One of the reasons I stopped buying new stuff (Alpha - M14 is my domain). It's just getting out of hand.
