You can draw digital foils off of online booster packs.  But pre-order people will get 65 digital foils.  Oh and by the way, the newly announced 55 cards will also be added as digital bonus for pre-order!!  Basically, we will have our digital foil collection matched that of physical.

    Oh man, I really can’t wait! By the way, dumb question, but what do the crystal numbers on the bottom of each card mean?

      Are you talking about on the card text at bottom next to the Crystal?

      It means the Card is from Call of the Crystal SET with Card #X. So in the future new set comes in you know which set the card is from e.g. If next set is called Chaos then Chaos 2 is card #2 from Chaos set.
