The cards will only be legal in formats that they are already legal in, and they will appear more often than the Masterpiece Series. The cards may also be used in Limited formats like Booster Draft and Sealed. The cards with specially designed showcase frames can be found in Strixhaven booster packs: one each in Draft Booster and Set Booster, and three in each Collector’s Booster.Be sure to check out the Strixhaven spoiler section to find out the latest cards already revealed.
