Innistrad: Crimson Vow Amazon Listing Leaks Box Topper

Article at a Glance

Reddit’s investigative work is incredible once again! Redditor u/doublefang posted to reddit some very interesting findings around Innistrad: Crimson Vow.

In this preorder listing on Amazon, it appears that Set Booster boxes for Crimson Vow will contain a box topper. The last time that we had a box topper on Set Boosters was Zendikar Rising. What’s even more interesting is that we don’t see is a box topper for Innistrad: Midnight Hunt Set boosters.

What could be the cause for this? In past standard legal sets where box toppers were included, there was a special set of cards that were included.

Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths

The first instance of this was with Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths.

This set was the first time Wizards had brought an outside IP to Magic with the Godzilla box topper cards. These were created specifically in collaboration with Toho Corporation.

Zendikar Rising

The next set that we see the box toppers was with Zendikar Rising. These were called Expeditions, and included 30 iconic lands, with a special border and art treatment. The box toppers for this were only non-foil, with the collectors boosters giving foil versions.

Crimson Vow

The question that we have now is, what does Wizards of the Coast have up their sleeve for Crimson Vow that they would be including a box topper? The most likely case is that there’s a partnership or licensing agreement that has been struck. We may see a subset of cards introduced to the set in an “Expedition style”. The one hint that we have that leads me to think this is possible is some art that was previewed during the Innistrad Midnight Hunt sneak peak stream.

This artwork was shown as scenery from the set. Very clearly this could be a depiction of Blood Moon. Whether or not that means that Blood Moon will be in the core set or in some kind of special showcase card set remains to be seen, but the hints point to it.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you think that there’s going to be a fancy special card set for box toppers in Crimson Vow? Let us know in the comments.

We don’t know very much about Crimson Vow, other than it’s the second set in the upcoming Innistrad block. We will be sure to report on more information as it becomes available. You can order Innistrad: Crimson Vow products here.
