MKM is the 99th MTG expansion to be released and features a dive into the Ravnica plane as players investigate a series of murders and misfortunes in the Karlov family household. I’m getting real Knives Out vibes here, but I don’t expect Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc to make an appearance, so it’ll be up to us to find out what went wrong.

When can we expect to get our hands on MKM, and how much will the MTG products cost?

While we can guess at the pricing structure for MKM products, the addition of Play Boosters—which merge Set and Draft Boosters into a single pack—is a groundbreaking change and is suspected to change the way MTG fans enjoy the game.

From booster slot changes to the merge of other products designed to make it easier for MTG players to play, the pricing of such items remains up in the air at this time. We’re also expecting to see a number of gift bundles as well as Commander Precon decks for MKM, but at this time, it’s not certain how much players will be expected to spend. Stay tuned for updates, particularly after WotC’s Murders at Karlov Manor spoiler season starts on Jan. 8.

Here are preorder prices for MKM at time of writing on Dec. 8, according to Amazon.

  • Play booster box: Around $175
  • Bundle: Around $50
  • Ravnica: Clue Edition: Around $72
  • Collector booster box: Around $280
  • Collector booster pack: Around $27
  • Each of the four Commander Precon decks: Around $47
  • All four Commander Precon decks: Around $190

All prices are subject to change prior to the start of the MKM spoiler season.

Update Jan. 8 11:40am CT: All dates and information from the first look at MKM were added, along with preorder prices.
