Give and Let Give #4: 1/31 - 2/6

WRITTEN BY

Welcome back to Give and Let Give!

I've finally chosen a foil for the Trade of the Week and it's a nice one! This was among the first series of Expeditions from Oath of the Gatewatch. I have to say, I've forgotten that set even existed...

It required a search in order to remember what was even good in that set (Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Kozilek, the Great Distortion, Thought-Knot Seer). The Zendikar Expeditions were pretty hard to crack as I remember.

I did a little research and found this info on a Reddit post:

So, the odds of any given pack of BFZ containing a Z.E. land are 1 in 432, or roughly 0.2%.

One small step further shows that within a box, containing 36 packs, the likelihood of a box of BFZ containing one of these lands is 36/432 or 1/12 or 8.3%.

After reading this I will consider myself pretty lucky to have pulled a Wooded Foothills in a BFZ fat pack.
