The four-card promo packs will include a promo-stamped rare or mythic rare from the most recent set; a promo-stamped rare or mythic rare from a short, curated list; a promo-stamped alternate art basic land; and a promo card from a selection of special, season-specific cards. One in four packs will be labeled as an all-foil pack.
Promo packs can be used for any events; WotC recommends they be used in the following ratios: 15% for Draft Weekend, 30% for Friday Night Magic, 20% for Magic Weekend, 10% for new player events and prizes, and 25% for other events.
Since quantities are based on a store’s numbers, beginning with Core Set 2020, stores will be able to schedule and edit events all the way up to the day of the event.
WotC also made changes in how it’s organizing its Magic events beginning with War of the Spark (see "’War of the Spark’ Ignites OP Changes for ‘Magic: The Gathering’").
