Omg wtf 4 rare packs?!!!!

Post by flippyh4 » Sat Feb 04, 2006 9:08 am

What the hell I thought Wizards had put a stop to accidently making stupid mistakes like this. My friend bought a box of Guildpact today and every damn pack he opened had 4 rares. Isn't this not supposed to happen? As soon as he opende half the box I just had to buy a box myself but no such luck for me.
Has anyone else whitnessed this?

Hi.
More Infos,at The preview in Paris,some Boxes of Guildpact was having 4 Rares.Today,a friend opened a Box,and All the Uncommons were having a Huge cutmark on the front and back,while the Rare and Commons were normals :-O we went back to the shop to change it,and apparently,it was the third one having that problem.

An amazing case I witnessed personally was with Mirage starters in English sold in Rome, where ALL 60 CARDS were rare !

Obviously when I entered the shop to buy one myself it was perfectly normal :-||

T&T had some all rare Visions boosters awhile back. I opened a box of Homelands with no rare/uncommons.

And he told me about some other amazing boxes he had heard of/seen

there were some boxes of urzas legacy in which ever card in the pack was a foil!

and others with a foil rare and a regular rare together.

Man why cant I get lucky enough to open a box like that :P

That takes Homelands to a whole new level of crappiness...

The shop I frequent received a case of 7th when it first came out where all of the rares were foil. He sold three packs for $2.50 then sold the remaining 213 for $5. It was a disappointing result to seeing such a great find.

I *just* opened a pack of Portuguese Ravnica with two rares - 16 cards total in the pack. The rares were...drum roll please...Blood Funnel and Necroplasm.

someone at sunday draft opened a pack without a rare. I tried to say my pack had no rare too, but no one bought it.

Yesterday I was at a Vintage tournament, and two boxes of 4-rares Guildpacts packs were opened.
Each pack contained 4 rares and no uncommon.
Unfortunately, if I remember well, all packs were opened.
