Ancient Origins Booster Box Opening
Of course I picked one of these up! I love getting booster boxes because of their consistency and the ability to really grab almost all of or all of the commons, uncommons and rare cards (and duplicates) for collections and deck building. The new set Ancient origins was no exception boasting some really cool cards, new mechanics and very powerful items and stadiums.
As usual I have documented all my openings through pictures which are in a nice gallery below. Like the Flashfire opening, this Ancient Origins booster box opening will not have discussion of each individual pack but of the opening as a whole and some statistics to go along with it!
Since most people only care about the ultra rares here is a picture of the haul I got from this Ancient origins booster box. Not bad all if I do say so myself!
That Full Art Lugia was actually the care I wanted the most from this set in terms of collecting, I think it is absolutely amazing looking and a pretty good card all around!
The full art Kyurem is also really great looking, although not great to play, and getting that Shiny Rayquaza was amazing seeing as I didn’t pull any Mega Rayqauzas from Primal Clash.
To top it all off I pulled my first Secret Rare Trainer card! I have not gotten one of these from my last few booster boxes where they started showing up and was very excited. Energy Retrieval is semi-useful, not awful not superb.
The stats more or less speak for themselves here. Completing commons and uncommons has happened every time I purchased a booster box and getting all of the Rares was nice. There were significantly more Ultra Rares then Holo Rares which I am personally not a fan of due to it just diluting the rarities. I did end up with quite a few Ultra Rares at 27% which is higher than a usual booster box and getting a solid 50% of the Secret Rares is great!
So what are your thoughts on this new Ancient Origins set? Definitely some nice new additions and an interesting mixture of rarities. I’m excited to get all of the cards!
