We’re getting to that point in the year. It’s time for another Jumpstart release! Jumpstart are packs of cards meant to be cracked and shuffled together to play right away, making them one of the best ways to jump into a game from nothing.

We’ve got a brand new release coming up in December 2022, and there are plenty of details for you to keep track of. Today I’m summarizing all the crucial information for you under one roof.

Let’s jump in!

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.


There might not be any new information yet, but we can speculate on a few characteristics by looking at previous Jumpstart packs. We’ll probably get a pack for every color combination plus a few extra ones. This is all that’s needed to get a proper combination for most players, and anything beyond that is a little too much.

We’re also likely going to get a few decent rares in each pack. They’re set lists, no gambling here, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a sprinkled Teferi or Commander staple here and there.
