About the Set

This iteration of Jumpstart follows closely in the footsteps of its predecessors. There are a variety of types of packs that can be opened and immediately combined together to form basic decks.

The whole idea with Jumpstart is that a new player with no previous collection can instantly get into the game with just a few packs and play a simple Constructed format. It avoids having to teach the game and how to Draft, offering an affordable and stress-free way to play outside of duel and starter decks.

Set Themes

Whereas most sets have 2-4 unique mechanics and abilities, Jumpstart 2022 will have 46 unique themes spread across various rarity levels and packs. The release contains everything from the familiar Tron and Snow themes with cards like Karn Liberated and Marit Lage's Slumber, as well as some newer themes and characters like Ashcoat of the Shadow Swarm and its rat tribal.

Overall, there’s a lot of stuff going on in this set. It’s impossible to nail down any few themes as the overall. Instead, look into the chaos and excitement that each pack has to offer. Don’t even get me started on all of the combinations you can make!


We’ve finally gotten some cards from Jumpstart 2022. Here’s what’s been revealed so far:
