This is a great product for a beginner. It comes with 285 total cards: 100 land cards, four 15-card boosters, and 125 semi randomized cards. There are 20 of each lands. My box came with M2014, M2013, Gatecrash, and Return to Ravnica boosters. Each booster comes with 15 cards containing 10 commons, 3 uncommons, 1 rare or mystic rare, and 1 land. 85 of the 125 "semi randomized" cards are in every builder's toolkit; the rest of the 40 cards are then added from a pool of predetermined cards. The set of 125 cards are roughly 75% commons and 25% uncommons. In other words, only the boosters contain rares. This box is for beginners who want to start making their own decks without spending a lot. As a beginner, you're probably looking for the most amount of cards for cheap to have enough cards to learn all the mechanics of the game. This toolkit is great for mid-level players who are looking for lands and boosters. On the other hand, this is generally not for the hard core players, as they are already buying single cards and most likely do not need the "fluff" cards.

I was concerned that the boosters in this toolkit would not contain good cards, but I actually got a Planeswalker, Vraska the Unseen, from my M2014 booster in this box.

If you're looking to get into magic, but don't want to spend a lot, you have a couple choices.
-Deck Builder's Toolkits - 100 lands + 185 cards - $20
-Fat Packs (nine 15-card booster packs) - 80 lands + 135 cards - $40
-Intro Decks (60 card deck, two 15-card booster packs) - 90 cards - $15
-Duel Decks (two 60-card decks) - 120 cards - $20-30

Overall, this is an absolute great buy for a beginner or if you need an assortment of boosters and lands.

I am new to MtG. That said, I had played some of the PS3 game (which is actually the reason I went out and bought the physical cards). I've been into "designer" board games for over a decade now, but never picked this one up.

Anyway, I think, as the other Deckbuilder kits seem to be, are geared toward beginner MtG players looking for a quick collection and options to add flexibility to their deck-building options. The set came with about 10 or 15 cards of each color, 20 land cards of each color, plus about 25 specific cards that seemed geared toward a couple specific colors (these specific cards seem to be the semi-random part). These numbers are estimations, not factual.
Then, it comes with 4 booster packs. These could be random, but I got 1 M14, 1 M13, and 2 older sets (Return to Ravnica, and Gatecrash I think), 15 cards per booster.
Overall, I had a lot of cool options, and some pretty decent common/uncommon cards, along with the other stuff that comes in the boosters.
For 20 dollars, this is a steal for a new player. The 4 boosters alone would be 16 dollars. So you basically get the rest (200-some cards) for 4 dollars. I would have paid that much for the 100 land cards alone (as a beginner!).

HOWEVER, I can definitely say that if you have been collecting MtG for a year or so, or if you already have a nice collection, this is a lesser deal for you. It does contain mostly commons outside of the boosters.

All being said, I bought a M14 theme deck along with this kit and I honestly couldn't imagine starting the game out with only the theme deck. I like deck building, and I like having options. With the kit alone (outside of my theme deck), I have built 1 pretty solid deck, and working on another.

Verified Purchase
I agree with almost everything written about the 185 "semi-random" cards and the lands. They are a collection of middle of the road cards that will let new players work on deck-building skills. You can learn a lot about Magic: The Gathering and have a lot of fun if you have these cards and a couple of pre-constructed decks. However almost everyone ignores that this box comes with 4 boosters. Boosters are $4.00 at my local gaming store, and rarely less than $3.00 apiece even on line. So if you are going to ever buy a handful of boosters, just buy this set. I paid $17.25, with free shipping. By my calculations that means I got everything OTHER than the booster packs for about $3.25.

This box is just like older versions. Below is my review from the 2013 version. This review remains the same for the 2014 version, just imagine 2014 where 2013 is mentioned.

============================
I am going to split my review into 2 pieces. One for new players and one for people who already know how the game works. The last portion of the review is for everyone.

**For New Players**
I highly recommend this box (plus intro decks) for a new player. The price on Amazon is unbeatable for this box. At less than $18 for this kit, you get a huge amount of cards to start off with. Great value if you need cheap cards. There is enough in this box alone to make an "ok" deck. Best purchase a few (or all of) the intro decks to have a better selection. Remember to keep your deck size as close to 60 as possible! The more cards you have past 60 increases your chance of drawing a card that isn't your best card.

**For People with Magic Cards**
If you already have a decent amount of cards, I do not recommend this pack due to the marketing strategies of this box. This contains a fixed 85 card count and the only "semi-randomized" cards are a small selection of about 11 cards. The variance in these 11 cards follows the strategies outlined in the How-to fold outs included with the box. So... bottom line here is that this box is giving you around 11 or so new cards plus the booster packs. You should get at least one 2013 booster and one 2012 booster. The intended targets for this box are new players. There is not much to gain from this box if you are looking for more 2013 cards.

**Everyone**
I have put together an extensive analysis on which of 3 products would be the most cost effective way of getting new cards.
