RNA commons: I have _zero_ guildgates (except 4 Simic ones I crafted before busting my first RNA pack) - including the 2nd illustration for Simic. Not including the starter-deck-only commons (Ragefire and Elite Arrester) I have 0 of 5 non-Gate commons; Prying Eyes, Act of Treason, Rubble Reading, Spikewheel Acrobat, Get the Point.

Conversely, in 65-75 or so packs, I have _4_ of _48_ commons I crafted none of (I crafted 3 Simic Guildgates and a Locket or two, not counting those or Growth Spiral since I know I crafted at least one of each and can't be sure at least 4 copies are natural.)

That seems...very unlikely, and I know we have some maths whizzes around here. (Also have playsets of 13 uncommons I crafted zero of, and 2 rares - Sphinx of Foresight and Pestilent Spirit. Heck, I've got 3 uncrafted Kaya.) I've tried reporting this to Wizards but they're not taking it seriously. I think I've discovered a legitimate bug by crafting stuff before getting any other cards from the set, but I can't impress the odds of this being completely at random to them.

Help?

They remove gates from packs.
You have to craft every one of those.

Huh. Wonder why they didn't just tell me that. Also, means I need 37 common WCs. :/

Hmm, something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes. Close

Link didn't work. So no, they didn't. Especially not in-game. But you'd think the support staff would mention a relevant link instead of "we'll send this up."

I knew ahead of time and tried to draft gates whenever reasonable - and with gates being an actual standard deck, it's often reasonable in limited. Suppose that's better than spending so many wildcards. However, RNA draft is off for several weeks :(

Nope. Same thing just happened to me.
Edit: I then set up to screenshot and tried again. The page came through the next time.

It's a WotC product. Still better than Stainless, but they're working on it. :D

It’s odd. In paper they ensure they include the gates in packs. For a booster box of 36 packs of 15 cards each I have pretty much a full play set for each. It’s the rare lands that of course are rare so you get a few if lucky. Seems bad in limited sealed to open a rare land but in standard they can be nice to have as even as singletons they increase the chance of curving out. SD
