If you crack open a brand new Kaldheim booster and find a card that isn’t from Kaldheim, you’ve just pulled a rare card from The List.
When you open a new Kaldheim Booster you’ll find yourself pulling cards from a world full of monsters, gods, and sagas–but on occasion you might find a card that doesn’t seem to fit in with the rest. When that happens, you’ve pulled a card from The List. What is The List, and why is it capitalized? Let’s take a look.

The List is a collection of 300 different cards introduced last year. It’s sort of an homage to Timeshifted cards out of Time Spiral, only this draws from all of Magic’s history. Here’s a brief history of The List:
What exactly is The List? Well, one of the coolest parts of Magic is its history, so we’re pulling a trick from Time Spiral and Mystery Booster. We’ve chosen a list of 300 interesting cards from Magic‘s past. This is The List.
Found in Set Boosters, cards from The List will appear in the final slot of the pack about 25% of the time. The List has commons, uncommons, rares, and mythic rares which will fall at the proper rate to one another. Being on The List does not make cards Standard-legal. They are legal in whatever formats the cards are already legal in. The cards can be pulled from anywhere in Magic‘s 27-year history. The plan is for The List to change subtly from set to set, bringing in cards that might make sense with the set we’re in, but it will mostly stay intact from set to set, meaning you will all get to learn what cards are in The List.
So there you have it. Here’s a look at everything on The List:
