Ok, according to my calculations, here are the comparative ratios one
should get in Both a starter box and a booster. Anyone who has bought
one or both, if you can confirm or deny this, please do.

Booster Box : 360 Commons, 144 Uncommons, 36 Rares
Starter Box : 576 Commons, 216 Uncommons, 36 Rares

If the prices are comparable, the Starter Deck Boxes seem to be the
clearly better deal, so watch where you shop.

According to, current price is $55 per box
for starters, and $65 per box for boosters, making starter deck boxes
the OVERWHELMINGLY better deal, however, there is a chance that the
prices will change or that the card/rarity ratios are not exactly on
target. I'll continue to track the economics of the cards for the list
when I have the time, as I already have free access to Scrye and

Just My Two Pence.
