rarity

Rarity (レアリティ Reariti) is an indicator on how difficult a card can be obtained. Rarities also apply visual effects on cards.

In products Edit

Cards with higher rarities are generally sought after, are traded at higher prices, and generally treated in better conditions.

Pre-constructed Decks Edit

Contents of copies of the same Pre-constructed decks are generally identical (Except for some added contents the deck may offer), so copies cards will be released in the same rarity. In this case, rarity only serves for visual effect purpose, and has no impact on its elusiveness.

Booster Sets Edit

While not truly random, cards in Booster packs are generally gained in a non-predetermined manner (i.e. People cannot know if a pack will contain cards with high rarity, such as Super Rare, or just a "Rare". Unless they scale or use other underhanded technique). And since it is unlikely to gain cards with high rarity in a consistent manner, they are often traded at higher prices.

Visual Effects Edit

The following table gives a rundown of each rarities' main features/effects. More detailed descriptions and example images can be found on their individual articles.

  • A Test Print is a test card used for checking alignment of the printing and cutting machines.
  • Fixed Rarity (FR) refers to cards whose printed rarity does not match how rare they actually are, and is seen most often with Super and Ultra Rare cards in Starter and Structure Decks.
  • Sets which are Out of Print are no longer being produced.
