I recently played some drafts and sealed games in Magic the Gathering Arena and was wondering what happens when I draft a card (or get a card in sealed) that I already have four times in my collection.

Do I get a wildcard for my collection, similar to when I open packs or is it "lost" after I'm done with my run?


For the moment, 5th copies of cards contribute points to something called The Vault, which requires 900 points to open.

Commons are worth 1 point, Uncommons 3, Rares 5, and Mythics 10.

When you open The Vault, you receive one Mythic, two Rare, and three Uncommon wildcards.

The Arena Devs have stated that they are seeking new solutions to the "5'th copy problem", so this is likely to change before the game leaves Open Beta.


  • Ty for the answer. Have they stated if cards from a draft or sealed go to the vault too? – Shiffty Oct 14 '18 at 12:55

    @Shiffty I don't know if it's been officially stated, but that's certainly the way it worked at the end of Closed Beta, and they didn't announce a change. – Sconibulus Oct 14 '18 at 13:44
