What is this?
Premodern Masters is a custom limited set designed by Max Sjöblom, Sakari Castrén, Kim Valori & Aleksi Väänänen. The set is based around the Premodern format. Some cards have been shifted in rarity from uncommon to common, and so on.
How does drafting work?
The draft box contains 4x of each common, 3x of each uncommon and 1x of each rare. Additionally, there are a number of special lands that ignore rarity and have their own slot in each booster.
When drafting, 15 card packs are made out of the contents of the draft box, so that each booster has 1 special land, 1 rare, 3 uncommons and 10 commons.
How can I draft?
If you are interested in drafting this set, we have set up an online drafting simulator, where you and your friends can draft (or make sealed pools) together.
The service was built as a fork of the dr4ft project.
Coming soon: detailed guide on how to use the draft service.
What are timeshifted cards?
A blast from the pas... err, future. These are cards from outside of the Premodern card pool that we still thought could work well in the limited environment and provide interesting games. All these cards are old bordered, naturally. These replace one common in each booster.
You can choose to use them, or leave them out. It's up to you. These are not yet implemented in the draft service.
Note: live vs. online
Due to the fact that Soraya the Falconer is not available on Magic Online, while doing online drafts, Aven Brigadier is used as a replacement for Soraya the Falconer.
What are the archetypes?
Each color pair has a somewhat unique identity which you are encouraged to draft around. But hey, anything goes, so go wild!
