With 79 cards available in various rarities and with such a wide selection of fan-favorites and competitive staples, there is something for everyone in this collection.

Here is the official fact sheet as released by Konami:

Obtain twice as many Ultra & Secret Rares per pack in the 25th Anniversary Rarity Collection II!

Last year’s 25th Anniversary Rarity Collection blew everyone’s socks off, so we started work on a sequel right away. In order to get it out as fast as we can, we’ve made some changes to the configuration while leaving all the good stuff (and value!) intact.

25th Anniversary Rarity Collection II packs have twice as many Ultra & Secret Rares per pack, which gives you twice as many chances at “luxury rares” per pack (Quarter Century Secret Rares, “Prismatic”-style Ultimate & Collector’s Rares, and Platinum Secret Rares)!

We’ve cut back on the packaging, so there will be fewer packs you’ll need to open (and fewer foil wrappers to throw away) to get the same number of the cards you’re looking for. (And with double the cards per pack, about two-thirds of packs should have at least one “luxury rare” this time, and around a third should have more than one. You could even get up to SIX “luxury rares” in the same pack, this time around!)

If you missed out on the first Rarity Collection, here’s how it works: Every card in the set is available in every rarity, with 3 “standard” rarities (Super Rare, Ultra Rare, Secret Rare), and four special “luxury” rarities: Quarter Century Secret Rares (celebrating the 25th anniversary with tons of sparkle and a watermark logo!), Platinum Secret Rares, “Prismatic”-style Collector’s Rares (previously available only overseas), and “Prismatic”-style Ultimate Rares (with special 3D varnish, and also available only overseas until recently).

Opening Rarity Collection packs is a rapid-fire waterfall of high-powered cards, in seven of the game’s most popular foil rarities. If you haven’t experienced this all-foil extravaganza yet, you’re in for a treat!

Each pack will contain:

  • 2 Secret Rares (each with an individual 1-in-4 chance of being upgraded to a Platinum Secret Rare or Quarter Century Secret Rare)
  • 4 Ultra Rares (each with an individual 1-in-6 chance of being upgraded to a new “Prismatic”-style Collector’s Rare or new “Prismatic”-style Ultimate Rare)
  • 3 Super Rares

ALL CARDS ARE DIFFERENT FROM THE FIRST RARITY COLLECTION! Here’s just a quick look at some of what you can find:

  • Hard-to-find tournament powerhouses like Accesscode Talker and Magicians’ Souls!
  • Silent Magician & Silent Swordsman, available for the first time in eight years! And just in time for the brand-new “Silent” cards coming in April’s Legacy of Destruction booster set.
  • Cards that will glisten and gleam in your hand as they wait for the perfect moment to seal your victory! Tournament mainstays like Droll & Lock Bird and Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit, plus Ghost Mourner & Moonlit Chill and Fantastical Dragon Phantazmay! (All with their variant art!)
  • The interstellar Field Spell Cards from the competitive “Visas Starfrost” story Decks: Primitive Planet ReichphobiaPrimeval Planet PerlereinoPressured Planet Wraitsoth, and Peaceful Planet Calarium!
