In case you haven't heard yet, and this deserves a signal boost, sealed product for Eldritch Moon has proven to be extremely searchable. That is to say, there is an easily identifiable pattern that will allow you to easily determine which sealed boosters contain the non-flip mythic rares. They tend to all be in the same booster art in a given box.

You can find the Reddit post reporting this finding here, and a YouTube video on the topic here.


I imagine that the overwhelming majority of QS readers don't mess with loose packs anyhow, though it's likely that you know somebody who does. Letting them know to stay away from loose Eldritch Moon packs, or at least to exercise caution would be good of you. It's naive to assume that nobody is going to exploit this easy mapping technique, though hopefully spreading awareness will help to prevent them from taking advantage of anybody.

  1. I’ve been thinking about selling the packs face down to prevent players from buying all the good packs? Anyone know of dealers doing something like this? What good strategies should stores employ to help players get the most out of their packs?

  2. I think a good start for store owners would be communication, and a written commitment in the form of a sign that says they will not take advantage of this mistake. Most of the stores that I play at can be trusted to keep their customer service integrity. Also when it comes to draft just make sure each person has one of each wrapper. This is more of a black eye 4 wotc. I wonder how they will react to it
