9th Edition Booster Boxes for Magic the Gathering


9th Edition Booster Box

Magic the Gathering MTG 9th (ninth) edition booster box contains 36 booster packs with 15 cards each. Released in 2005, 9th edition is a core set. The set contains 359 white-bordered cards (110 rare, 110 uncommon, 110 common, 9 fixed, and 20 basic lands). The nine fixed cards only appear in the core game pack.

Ninth Edition features many cards from older base sets and expansions. While many of these cards were very powerful during their original print run it remains to be seen if they are still powerful in Magic today.

With Ninth Edition came a redesign of Fat Packs. The Fat Pack consisted of two boxes wrapped around by a card box wrapper featuring new art. The player's guide was also reduced in size but was now sturdier. Also added were 6 divider pieces with artwork for inside the boxes.

In addition to the 350 cards available in booster packs, the Ninth Edition Core Game contained 9 "starter cards", labeled with the collector numbers S1 through S10 (there is no card labeled S6, however), which were not available in booster packs. These were simple "vanilla" creatures, such as Eager cadet, which were designed to introduce new players to the game but which were regarded as bad cards and disliked by experienced players.

Ninth Edition is the last Magic set to be printed with white borders. The set's premium foil cards were printed with black borders. Cards made available in Cryllic when Ninth Edition was marketed in Russia also were black-bordered; this marked the first time a new language had been printed for the game since Simplified Chinese was added to Fifth Edition.

Ninth Edition features only mechanics present in previous expansions. However, Ninth Edition does modify the list of mechanics considered suitable for base sets. The trample and protection mechanics were included after being removed from 6th Edition and later base sets. Equipment, first introduced in the Mirrodin set, is also in Ninth Edition, although it was moved up in rarity. Furthermore, all mechanics now have reminder text; mechanics such as flying and trample did not in earlier sets.

Ninth Edition is also the first set to be printed using the new template for enchantments. Previously, enchantments that were played on other permanents were called "local enchantments" and were printed with the type "Enchant creature," "Enchant land," etc. With the Champions set, Wizards of the Coast made an effort to simplify the type line, which had contained rules interactions that were not written on the card. Following this reasoning, the line "Enchant something" was a problem for several reasons. It has been changed to "Enchantment - Aura" and the targeting restriction moved to the text box. Ninth Edition is the first set where the cards have actually been printed this way.
