If you're going for a complete set and only buying one full box, I'd
go with Starters.

Two reasons:

1) 3 rares per deck v.s. the 1 in boosters.

2) A decided lack of objectives (particularly the commons) in the
boosters I've picked up.

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
