Over the past few weeks, there’s been a lot of buzz about Modern Masters 2015, and a lot of questions ranging from “What is it?” to “When can I buy it?”
To address all those questions, we present these frequently asked questions:
What is Modern Masters 2015?
Modern Masters (2015 Edition) is a Magic the Gathering special release that takes players back to some of the most remarkable planes from recent history, including Zendikar, Mirrodin, Ravnica, Lorwyn, Kamigawa, and Alara. Featuring new artwork on a number of cards, every card in Modern Masters can be added to your favorite Modern-format decks. But first, enjoy a fresh Limited experience that combines some of Magic‘s most iconic cards in new ways.

When will Modern Masters 2015 be released?

How will you be selling Modern Masters 2015?
As a Wizards of the Coast Advanced Plus Store we are allocated between 9-12 cases of Modern Masters 2015. We have been guaranteed at least 9, but possibly up to 12.
On March 14, 2015 we had a Magic Celebration day. Anyone who participated in that event is able to purchase 5 packs at MSRP between May 22-29. Customers who attended the March 14th event, who want to purchase their packs of Modern Masters, but for whatever reason won’t be able to between May 22-29 should contact us to make alternate arrangements.
Any packs from these cases left after May 29th we will make a judgement call on how we’re going to use them at that time.
We pledged that if we achieved Advanced Plus status, it would be because of the support of the community, and we would sell the boxes at MSRP to people who had played in the store. MSRP for a Box is $300+ Tax. ($340)
(1 Booster = 9.99 USD or 12.5 Cdn, 24 Boosters *12.5 = $300 Cdn)
Because we know that we are certain to get at least 9 cases, we will begin pre-selling the boxes from those 3 cases at 11am Wednesday April 8, 2015. This will be on a first come, first serve basis, payment in full will be required to secure your box.
As of May 20th, boxes are no longer restricted to only customers who played at the store.
