In Ranked Draft, does your own "rank", such as Bronze Tier 3, affect the general "quality" of the cards you can draft!?

If you're only Bronze, most of the cards you can draft is only Common and Uncommon, and if you're ranked Gold, more chances you got to get Rare, even Mythic Rare, cards!?

    Is there any reason to think it does?

  • The reason being, if it does, then I should wait till my rank is as high as possible before I rashly spend 5k on drafting! ^O^ Aug 7 '19 at 11:25

Not at all.

The cards you're shown in a draft on MTG Arena are a simulated version of what you would see in a paper draft of MTG cards.

This means that, for each pack, with some exceptions, there will always be 10 commons, 3 uncommons, and 1 rare/mythic rare.

As the draft goes around, simulated players (these would be real players in a paper draft) pick cards, and so the next packs that you see will contain less cards.

If you need more of an explanation, see: https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Booster_Draft


No, not at all, the draft packs are exactly the same on every level. However they are different then the normal arena packs you can buy for gold/gems.

A normal arena pack has 1 rare (which has a 1:8 chance to upgrade to mythic) 2 uncommons and 4 commons.

A draft pack however has 10 commons, 3 uncommons and 1 rare (with the same chance for a mythic).
