New Magic The Gathering Price Increases on the Way…

wotc-magic-price-increasesWith the cost of basically everything increasing, it looks like a Magic: The Gathering price increase is on the way soon.

We’ve seen pretty consistent price increases from miniature companies this year and now Magic is following suit with a decent increase across a ton of different offerings.

Wizards made the announcement recently and while it’s not really the news we were hoping to see, let’s take a closer look at the details.

Magic: The Gathering Price Increase on the Way…

magic the gathering jace Wizards of the Coast to GW: Hold my BeerConsidering they are raising the prices, we’ll let them tell you why they are increasing the prices:

Over the past year, the costs of goods, transportation, and manufacturing have increased significantly and steadily for just about everyone across nearly every industry. For Wizards of the Coast, this means that we’ve seen a large spike in the overall costs to produce Magic: The Gathering. As such, we will be increasing prices by around 11%, allowing for regional variation, on select products in our lineup starting in September.

We’ve worked hard to keep Draft Boosters—and later Set Boosters and Collector Boosters—at a relatively consistent price across our premier sets—the four major yearly releases that affect the Standard format—for as long as we were able. However, the price to produce Magic: The Gathering has increased significantly, and we’ve especially seen an uptick in the costs to produce, manufacture, and ship Magic around the world in the past year.

We’ve kept the scope of the price increase as narrow as possible, and will only be adjusting the prices on the following premier set, Unfinity, and Jumpstart products:

  • Draft Boosters
  • Set Boosters
  • Collector Boosters
  • Bundles
  • Jumpstart Boosters

Will this change how much Magic you purchase this fall?
