Mine is: T1 Innistrad T2 Saviors of Kamigawa Avacyn Restored Kaladesh Return to Ravnica
Here's what I got for my 5 packs. doesn't seem to "Random" with 4 of the packs being from 4 sets released in a row. Would not buy again T2** 1 - Innistrad 1- Dark Ascension 1 - Avacyn Restored 1 - Return to Ravnica T1** 1- Saviors of Kamigawa
If anyone would want to pay$50 for five non-masters booster pack please contact me I have products for you
Charrrrrrrt
I agree $50 is insane, but price is $30 now... think it's a decent gamble at this point?
I did get a tier one and the rest tier 2. I enjoyed every minute of them its just always fun to open some packs.
Good if you want to gamble before you gamble, i guess.
I don't understand why they can sell the fat packs grab bag internationally but not these.
Just got mine, and I can vouch for the fact that premium shards foils packs were included, as I got one. From the second group I also got several of the lower odds packs. Of course what I get when I open them is yet to be determined, but I wanted to pass along that good stuff was included in at least some of these.
So has anyone heard back about if/when this is gonna ship. I know the projected date is Wednesday but three weeks is plenty of time to at least get the shipping label created.
This Drop is alive again in October 2018 for 30.99 with free shipping. It remains a pretty terrible deal, see my comment from May. It does not mention Guilds of Ravnica packs in the description at this time. It would be nice to know if they send out packs newer than the ones listed, so if you buy this and get one, can you let us know? But remember, this is a terrible waste of money, just buy loose packs from a reputable seller online if you want to chaos draft.
I did get the foil booster Shards of Alara this drop so the list appears to be accurate.

Wow thanks for letting us know that is real!
This continues to be the most ridiculous pricing structure for 5 random packs of Magic cards I've ever seen. Pathetic.
This drop is live again in May 2018 for 30.99 (lowest price tier) including shipping. They have updated the description and now include Amonkhet-Rivals of Ixalan. The EV comes out to 16.07, which is ~$1 higher than it has been for a while, but the price is about the same. So this is a slightly better deal, if you believe the product description. The calculation is done here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1q3PTRtsDLES7ewo00muC3cqnRsaxuRlsARcq8IKd1D0/edit?usp=sharing using prices from http://mtg.dawnglare.com/?p=sets&pack=1 as of this posting.
Why shouldn't you trust that this product description is correct? Well, for more than a year now they've listed 12 all foil shards of Alara packs. When the drop first came out they offered 780 packs, each with a 12/780 chance at a all foil shards of Alara pack. Each and every drop they have offered has had this listed as a chance. So either, they are adding in a new all foil shards of Alara pack for each one they send out, or they aren't sending them out. Has anyone gotten one? Or, they have sent them all out and they are no longer available. The same can be said for every single tier one pack.
At least this time the product description was updated, but it was a rush job. Note that the new standard sets Amonkhet-Rivals of Ixalan have different formatting from the sets that have been listed for a while. They use : and one uses ; instead of ' - ' to separate the numbers. This gives me no confidence that the other set numbers we actually updated at all.
In conclusion, this drop continues to be really shady. They aren't listing what they really have to send out, because they aren't updating the numbers as they send out the good stuff. Even if they still have or actually do send out the good stuff, at the rates they say they are, the EV is about half of what you'd end up paying for the packs, which is quite a rip off, and not what massdrop should be about. But mostly, they can't be bothered to actually list what you might actually get and that's reason enough to not join this drop. We need to demand better transparency from massdrop with our wallets.

wow, you're right, and that is VERY scummy of them! Someone needs to report this shit, or at least ask MD to remove this obviously fraudulent listing (unless the Vendor posts REAL IMAGES of all packs sent to all purchasers)
liryon
Lets not buy this shit and spam the share button on our social media pages and link all the popular Youtubers. That'll shut this shit down real quick.
Any update on shipping for this drop?
Gigunge
Havent heard or seen anything either.
'There's a sucker born every minute'
Need more be said?
No.
Oh! This steaming pile of garbage is back. Updated suggestion: Take your $35, team up with some friends or find someone local who's buying a box of Masters 25 and get 4 packs for the same price. Hell, take the $35 and go to walmart and get a draft pack of 25. You'll get better cards, I PROMISE you.
Thunderpaladin
Packs of A25?
I wouldn't be so sure about that value.
Kenrac
I'd take that against half the T1 boosters any day.
Based on Dawnglare EV on 3/23/2018 (and using a 1.5x multiplier for the foil Shards of Alara packs), I got an EV per package of $20.87, with four packs from Tier 2 and one pack from Tier 1. This does not account for the fact that the distribution may not be random; I could see them not placing multiple packs from the same set together in order to make each package contain a variety.
Mine was Dragon's maze, Return to Ravnica, Eldritch moon, M13, and Conflux
Mine was Conflux, Scars, M12, Eldritch Moon ,Dragon's Maze
Mine wasnt so bad. Tenth edition, dragons maze, m13, scars of mirrodin, khans of tarkir.
Got Eldrich Moon, Khans of Tarkir, M12, Eventide, and Journey into Nyx
This drop is live again in Feburary 2018 for $28.99 + $2.75. I've updated my EV calculation here ( https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xRW4CqL68Is4XYLq17BxcP8Na4_oedH6qDjqjmEJr8k/edit#gid=0 ) with today's prices. The EV comes to $15.14.
Note that the description of the drop has not been updated. It doesn't include any sets printed since July 2017, when this drop was last alive. That drop was limited to 340 packages, and this one is 250, but the pack quantities they show still total 780 packages.
No one should buy this drop because the EV is horrible. But also, no one should buy this drop until the description is updated to show what packs are no longer available because they were shipped out in the previous instances of this drop. The sellers should be held accountable to accurately report what the likelihood of each pack is, not what it was six months ago or more. The only way to do this is to not buy the drop until they update the description.
This is a HORRIBLE deal. There are a ton of places online where you can get most of the Tier 2 packs for $2.50 - $3.00 a pop, so that's $12 of value. You're paying $23... TWENTY THREE DOLLARS for a Tier 1 pack. Save your $35 and buy a fat pack of a set you KNOW you'll enjoy. Garbage.
I got...1x Dissension, 1x khans of Tarkir, 1x shadows over innistrad, 1x m13, 1x dragons maze...waste of $30.
There have been several shops that offer a fun innocent gamble deal like this...then we all started to notice noone ever got a payout. So the last few of these we all posted our grab bags online in a forum and what do you know out of every single grab bag nothing but overstock packs they couldn't move. Not one value in the whole lot. We should start doing this to massdrop
Oatmeal
Mine got screwed by weather and is stuck.
My work gave me a $96 dollar gift card - 3 of these is $95 and change, so I figured why not - I've been holding that thing for a while. I'll do a chaos draft with these, I have a lot of floating Iconic Masters, Conspiracy 2, and Unstable packs.
Why is this even allowed on Massdrop?! It's a complete ripoff and with no actual transparency I'm betting they're just sending random crap (no real need to actually have the good stuff when no one buys in enough quantities to make it worthwhile.
Bought 3 Tier 1s: MM15, Eventide, and Dissension. Tier 2s: 3x Avacyn Restored, 2x M15, 1x each of: M12, Origins, Aether Revolt, Kaladesh, Eldrich Moon, RtR, and Dark Ascension. A little underwhelming, but it should make for a fun chaos draft I think
Bought 2:
Tier 1 : Innistrad, Alara Premium foil Tier 2: Aether revoltx2, SOI, Origin, Return to Ravnica, Scars of Mirrodin, Avacyne Restored, Mirrodin Besieged
Not much value. It was fun though.
Meh, bought 1. Got:
Tier 1: Innistrad Tier 2: Core 2014, Return to Ravnica, Dragon's Maze, Kaladesh
Pretty terrible...
Hi All,
Don't forget, if this drop reaches 500 bundles sold we will be giving away a box of Commander Anthology (MSRP$164.99) to one lucky community member, good luck!
Cheers,

That's $3 per Tier 2 pack and $8 for a Tier 1 pack, with $5 accounting for shipping 5 packs. You know my math is right.
Thunderpaladin
OH WAIT I'M SORRY. You're charging for shipping ADDITIONALLY. So yeah. You KNOW this should be a $25 set.
It's back again, folks.
Keep in mind. It's literally called a "grab bag." If you buy in expecting to get $100 of packs, you are in for a surprise.
OTOH, this will totally scratch your pack-opening itch. :)
